I have recently started using Firefox Lockwise with a master password and I am syncinc them with Firefox Sync. I am strongly considering switching to another service, becaues Firefox keeps asking for my master password on startup (because it tries to sync the encrypted passwords). This happens on Windows and Linux.

I have already tried to follow the steps from

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/986220

I have also read answers that suggested installing an addon or disconnecting from sync, but I wouldn't consider these proper solutions for this rather simple feature.

Does anyone know about some preference key that I have missed? Thank you!

The title says it all.

I sat down this morning with planned work to do on my computer and when I tried to log into a site found there was no automatic completion of username and password.

Checking my saved logins and passwords, I found there were no saved logins and passwords!

Apparently, this is an improvement to Firefox called Lockwise!

So, where do I find my saved logins and passwords, please?

And how do I get back to a version of Firefox which doesn't use Lockwise?

Advertisement: (Venha buscar o seu Jeep Renegade.) Oft times I cannot order things because the co. doesn't mail to "my country" or many articles I can't read also because of "my country address" . How do I correct this? THANK YOU for your time.

Hello,

is it possible to have individual sync settings for different instances of Firefox? In my case I would like to sync passwords only between my desktop instances and not to my android instance. But every time when I deselect the password sync option on Android it is also deactivated on all other instances. Having the passwords synced to Android is, in my opinion, a security issuse since the Android version of Firefox does not require any unlock procedure (password, pin, pattern, fingerprint, ...) before the stored paswords and log-in data can be used.

Best regards, Heiko

Hello community, does anybody know wether it's possible to get a backup from Firefox for a sync that didn't work? I got a new computer today from my company and synced my Firefox settings on the old one before. Back home with my new computer I was able to run the sync but all my settings are lost. Even though I'm logged into Firefox with my account. Problem: the old computer is already cleared and set back. Any ideas or solutions out there? Thanks and cheers, Christian

Hello, and thanks for taking time to read my question.

Firefox appears to be very privacy-focused. It is the impression from the first time you visit their website, and the person-before-profit mentality seems to be well baked into the mozilla foundation and the company around it. However, in the 'Firefox Privacy Notice' that you are required to accept to create an account, it says that the users' email-address is sent to 'Salesforce', an independent company. Salesforce is, as I have understood, a marketing company or 'Customer relationship management', as they choose to call it.

What exactly is Salesforce and how do it affect me and other Firefox users?

Once again my account is locked on one of my computers. It says the email was returned but there was no email sent to the address. Oddly, the account is locked on one machine, the one that has been logged on the longest, but my other three machines have no trouble connecting and syncing. This seems to have happened after firefox updated itself (even though I had it set not to. It also removed all the settings I had spent a considerable amount of time customizing)

I'm trying to sync my bookmarks, passwords etc between two devices, one HP running on Win7 and one Lenovo running on Win10, and they are not sharing data. I can see both devices on my account, and I can send tabs between the two browsers. Additionally, the sync works between the HP laptop and my iphone.

Any suggestions?

Im having some serious problems with firefox. I have saved the %APPDATA% folder.

I cannot login to mozilla servers for firefox sync and whenever I close firefox it would only remember the tabs and windows I opened the previous day; not today's tabs. It runs for over 1 hour saying it's working on sync.

When I login after reinstalling firefox all my tabs are removed and cannot get sync data. How do I fix this without removing my windows and tabs (have over 100 open). I want to keep all history and tab data. Also tried cleaning cookies and cache data; no luck.

It looks like I have been having sync problems for a week, based upon my logfiles; but it was only today it stopped restoring new tabs and windows (old ones work).

Hello, I would like to know is it possible to see/check the history of synced devices on Firefox. In other words, is it possible to check whether somebody synced my Firefox with theirs without me knowing it or being aware that happening. In this specific case I know it happened 100% and I just need somehow to prove it ... Thank you!
