Hey I was just trying to login to my account after I created a new windows and I got this issue The confirmation email we sent to *********@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account

Well can you just unlock my account as I know the password and have big data needed there. Also this email is closed by google and I mean closed not forgotten so it won't receive any emails.

I have a duplicate Firefox account that I would like to close.

I forgot the password for this account, and when I go to https://accounts.firefox.com/reset_password to reset it, I enter my email address for the account I'd like to log into and it fails every time with the message "Primary account email required for reset".

The API response includes the error message "Reset password with this email type is not currently supported".

My account email address ends in @hey.com. Is this domain not allowed for password resets?

Finding desktop tabs on an Android device after syncing

I set up FF Sync between my desktop and my Android phone, but I do not see any of my desktop tabs on my phone. I saw something about sharing the desktop tab with other devices, but there are no *3 dots* next to my address bar to allow me to do this.

How is this done?

It might be just another promised *feature* that doesn't work as advertised, or at least doesn't live up to the hype that FF boasts.

Thanks, Bruce

Firefox Sync - deleting Firefox from old

Hi, I have an old computer which I have Firefox on with tons of stuff...after getting a new laptop and syncing the two I want to now delete Firefox from the old laptop and use it for other things and still have all the old stuff on the new laptop. I thought the server keeps everything and if I sign out the old laptop that whatever was saved in to the new laptop stays. However, on the new laptop after signing off the old one from sync I don't see the tabs anymore. It makes sense because there is nothing to sync but how do I do what I want then? Many thanks for your assistance. Do I have to "send" 1000 tabs from old to new? Isn't the server maintaining the tabs/history even after I sign off the old laptop from sync?

Many thanks in advance for your assitance.

Reseting password after I installed windows in a hury deleted all my data- can it be recover?

I just installed a fresh windows on my PC after my HDD started to break down slowly. I bought an SSD and fresh installed it. I entered my password for my account and it locked me for 30 mins, and as I was in a hury I didn't wanted to wait for the cooldown, so I went straight to reset it, (because I had like 2 tries to find my password back) and I needed the account sync RIGHT NOW. I had no idea if I resetted my password, it would delete all I had on that account. Is there any way to get my log-ins back? They are really important as I had some stuff that I don't use often and I needed them there. Or is anything that I can do at least to recover my passwords? PLEASE HELP

My Firefox account is tied to an old email address which I had taken off my Gsuite list of emails. I have now reactivated that email. But I could not log in since my account was locked. I will change the email for the account once I am able to log back in.

The email I am currently using to log in is a valid email. It simply was turned off the first two times I tried to log in.

What can I do to get the lock removed to log in?

Firefox bookmarks sync issue between laptop and desktop

I have two desktops that we use on a daily basis, both have Firefox sync turned on to sync bookmarks, addresses, add-ons and settings. I also have a laptop that I use sporadically, maybe once every two-three weeks, or longer. It also has the same sync settings. Here is the issue I'm having with sync. When either desktop has new bookmarks added/removed they always sync perfectly to each other (desktops). But, if I turn my laptop on after a couple of weeks of being off, then it always syncs the 'old' bookmarks (up) and then the desktops get synced (down) with old bookmarks. How can I prevent this from happening and does anyone know why, in this scenario, it is happening? I've checked various places in settings and cannot find anything obvious to fix this. All devices, laptops & desktops, are very regularly updated with the most current firefox version, except on occasion if the laptop has been off for a couple of weeks or more, but once it's turned on, it updates.
