Firefox Account - How to STOP making new "service" device entries

I do a lot of OS switching - I test various Linux distros on my 5 laptops and one really old 32 bit system for my mother-in-law and I am wondering if I can use FireFox Accounts over and over without making a new service device every time I need something from FF Accts :P

This has bugged my off and on for a long time but I have mostly ignored the issue ... until last week I discovered I had like 20 some odd devices on my account -- going back 2 years or more. Now, I signed out of many of them and I am down to about 15 -- mostly because I am a little confused about how FF Accts determines what to sync ... especially since I use FF for testing and the shouldnt be that much in each 'sync' device ...

So, is there a way to use FF Accts 'sync' to get my data to a new device without making a new 'synced' device?

Thx/Bill

PS - a few FF releases in the past I got what I wanted by just copying the .mozilla directory to the new system but that broke a few releases ago :P too bad stuff has to change :(

Also, please understand that I am on Android, iOS, MacOS, and Linux daily so trying to 'gather' what I am submitting this question on will not lend itself to trying to solve my insanity >< Sorry!

I'm setting up two Firefox profiles on a new machine. In both I have signed into Firefox and the sync has completed. Both profiles are set to synchronize everything (bookmarks, history, open tabs, logins & passwords, add-ons, and settings).

Although sync appears to have finished I do not see any of my stuff, the theme remains unchanged, there are no add-ons, the bookmarks toolbars are empty, and there are no saved passwords.

What's going on and how do I fix it?

Hi! For some reason accounts.firefox.com is not displaying in english on my desktop, but in Norwegian, and specifically nynorsk to make things even weirder. On another PC it's displaying in english as I want it to be. My Firefox is set to english (although apparently has Norwegian (bokmål) installed which I can't remove cause the remove button is grayed out...), and my preferred languages for displaying pages are set to english only.

Well title says it all but for more context I have 2 laptops. One of them I am currently using and the other I sold so what I did was I logged out of firefox and did not press the check box that asked if I wanted to delete data. I believe this laptop was synced to my fire fox account.

After logging out of firefox and backing up all my personal files I used windows reset to reset my pc and to completely wipe the laptop of my information so I can ship it out to the buyer. With that said I was wondering if I am able to obtain the tabs from my time using the laptop. When I go to firefox sync I don't see the tabs I had open from my old laptop.

I recently had to do a fresh reinstall of my Windows OS and was in the process of reinstalling and logging back into my Firefox browser and account. I quickly found out that I could not remember my password for the account. After trying multiple potential passwords, I was not able to find the correct one and resorted to password reset.

I reset my account and now lost all the bookmarks that were saved to the account. The odd thing is that I still have my bookmarks available on my mobile firefox browser, under Bookmarks -> Desktop Bookmarks -> Bookmarks Toolbar.

Is there any way to bring back my previous bookmarks the way they were before the Windows OS reinstall? Especially given that my mobile Firefox still retains those bookmarks?

Thank you.

I've seen nothing that specifically says this can or cannot be done. It makes sense to me, a non-tech person, though. Why -- or how if it's now possible -- can I sync certain files I select between 2 or more computers? For example, I'd like my "Documents" to be the same on my computers. But I see no reference to doing that. Sub-text: IF that were possible, will Firefox automatically sync so that the resulting file is the most recent version (assuming identical file names)? OR, will Firefox bring all individual files if they are different in any way even if they have the same file name?

Thank you.

I recently switched from Chrome which had the Reading List feature which you could view on the Chrome Android app as well as Chrome PC.

I recently figured out Firefox has a similar thing called Collections but I can't find out where it's located on the Firefox PC application.

Or do I have to do something to sync it with my PC?
