Hello,

I was a little surprised to see that my current computer hasn't reflected the updated bookmarks which I bookmarked on my other computer with being logged into my account as well which I thought would be the case after syncing Firefox on my current computer. I'm not too sure of how to get around this since I checked Firefox on my laptop which I used recently and had the recent bookmarks listed but not on my other computer where I'm on now. Hope you can help me figure out how to get around this outside of trying to sync my information which I haven't had much luck with. Thank you.

Hello everyone,

I hope someone can help me with this.

So, i have logged in Firefox Accounts, in a friend's computer a few days ago. When i finished what i was doing, i simply logged out and turn of the computer.

Now, i'm back home and when i turn on my computer and Firefox, i discover that i have sync all of my friend's bookmarks, usernames and passwords! He works with a lot of people's personal data, so now i have a ton of data that is hard to manualy delete; I have already restored my bookmarks to a previous date, so thats all ok! My questions now is, can i also restore my saved username and passwords to a previous date?

Thank you in advance!

I recently changed my PC and need the replacement to become the master so that an older PC gets synced from the new one. As the older PC has no addons/extensions and only 1 tab open, the last thing I want is for it to sync what it has to the new machine which was accurately synced from the PC it just replaced.

I can find no setting in Sync to specify which machine should be the master from which all other connected devices (slaves) will get their synced data from.

I have used sync for long on several devices and different operating systems (Win 7, Win 10, IOS) in parallel. Most interesting and useful is for me synchronisation of the toolbars with Bookmarks. It worked fine up to today. Today I opened Firefox and found my bookmarks as they were about two years ago. Oops... so I tried to synchronize but failed. No changes were applied to my bookmarks. I assume, my bookmarks are also being stored on several other devices I used for Firefox. However the newest sinchronization on the mozilla server does not contain the accurate valuable data. How can I manage to save sync data from a destinct device to the sync server and determine that as the current data set to be valid for synchronization with all my other devices? In other words: set the direction for synchronization. I did not find this option on my current (82.0.3 (64-Bit)) installation. Could anybody help me? Thanks Juergen

Hello,

I have lost access to the primary email on my account. I will never be able to get it back, it was a work email address from a previous employer.

I had already registered a secondary email address but it won't let me switch it to primary without confirmation to the current primary address. Is there a way around this issue, or am I stuck with my account set permanently to a dead inbox?

I had no access to my computer (a Mac) for a month, and sent many tabs from Firefox on my iPhone.

Today, I log onto my computer, macOS starts Firefox automatically (it was open when I shut the computer down), I get a notification that 71 tabs have been sent to Firefox (yay), but then when Firefox opens, I only see one window, containing the Firefox session restore, and nothing else. When I click "restore session", I get my month-old session, but not the 71 tabs.

Where can I get a list of all the tabs I sent to my devices?

Thanks!

I have a Mac and every time I quit Firefox, when I reopen the program all of my bookmarks and passwords are gone and I have to re-login to my Firefox account every time I open the program. Once I re-login all my passwords and bookmarks come back, but I don't want to login to Firefox every time I open the program. Is there anyway I can get it to stay logged in even after I've quit Firefox?

I changed the email address for my Firefox Account today, which involved entering my password. The password was not recognized, despite having been used without any problems in the past, and being stored unchanged in my password manager.

I managed to reset the password using my Recovery Key, logged in with it successfully, then tried to create a new Recovery Key to replace the now obsolete one. The process failed at the first step, however, claiming an incorrect password. I reset once more, again logged in with it successfully, and yet again I get an incorrect password error when trying to generate a new Recovery Key.

Obviously the password is working fine as I've successfully used it to log into this Support forum.

What could be the issue here?
