Hi, my machine choked and died on the latest Windows update. I tried every trick I know, but eventually had to admit defeat and nuke'n'boot. Most' 'of my stuff was either backed up or kept on a non-OS drive, but I needed to reinstall Firefox. When I did, I found there is a limit to how many tabs Sync willl display at once from another device. That limit is 1,271 tabs, which is not all of mine - I'm pretty sure I had more than that open in a single one' 'of my seven open windows (though probably only the one window had that many).

Also, with the new Firefox update, while I can open all 1,271 at once, that just leads to Firefox crashing. When similar things happened in the past, I could open, say, fifty at a time, and kill Firefox's process every time it became too much for my computer, then reopen firefox with all those tabs open but not active, however with FF 89 I only seem to be able to open one or all.

To make matters worse, those 1,271 tabs I can see seem to be randomised each time, or at least randomly ordered, so I wouldn't even be able to methodically open all 1,271 with my usual method of killing firefox and reopening it.

Is there any way I can send the 1,271 straight to bookmarks, or open the entire session from the old install, or view more than the 1,271, or open the old synced tabs view, where I could open as many or as few as I wanted to, instead of all or (basically) nothing?

Thanks!

I've reinstalled my PC. First thing first I downloaded FF and installed it. Login to Firefox Sync. And it's empty. No history, no tabs, no passwords, everything is gone.

Well, I got the impression from your original instructions that I would be able to set my own "secret phrase", but the screen pictured in the instructions page never appeared. I got instead another screen with a "Firefox Sync Key" which I was required to print or save.

Is this key the same as the secret phrase you mentioned? If so, can I change it? If not, how do I get to create a secret phrase?

My sync key used to be 12 characters, no dashes (xxxxxxxxxxxx). After uninstalling and reinstalling FF 3.6.13, Sync 1.6.1 refuses my 12 character sync key. I discovered, that sync keys for all users have been switched to 31 characters including 5 dashes (x-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx). How do I get the new sync key? I have no PCs connected to Firefox Sync anymore but Firefox Home and 360 Browser on my iPhone sync successfully. Unfortunately on the iPhone I cannot display the currently used sync key. Is there a way to convert the old sync key to the new one? I need the bookmarks saved in my Sync account. Thanks for your help!

At the bottom of the image verification box are the buttons for :sync options", "next", "back", and "cancel". Since no word image is visible, there is nothing to type into the text field and therefore, when I hit "next", I am treated to the white "x" in the little red circle icon and "Incorrect words. Try again". So I can get nowhere with this. Any possible solution?? Thanks.
