I recently got a chromebook and the firefox sync is not working on it. For "last synced" it gives the last time I tried to refresg it but nothing syncs up. I've had it for a few hours and since it's via google play I beleive it's technically the Android version.

Hi guys.

I'm wondering if it's possible to send tab from macOS Firefox to another device... I couldn't find any clue to achieve that, since that right click doesn't have the option to send tab throughout the devices like on windows.

Tks.

My company just pushed out new group policies for Firefox that blocks use of Firefox Sync. That also, apparently, blocked use of my saved logins and passwords.

I can find the encrypted password files in my profile: key4.db logins.json

but I can't open them.

Is there any way to get my login and password information?

Hi! I have a primary computer with all bookmarks, history, extensions, etc. I've logged in to another computer and clicked to sync my information, but nothing is coming over. Now I'm worried my bookmarks, etc., have been erased, but I won't have access to my primary computer for several days. Is the sync just not working? Please help, thank you.

I can browse web pages fine, but I cannot gain access to login to my FireFox Account. I have had to use another browser to post this as I needed to login to my Forefox Account in order to do so.

Why am I seen these symbols?

I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

Hello!

I have bought a new computer recently and for the life of me cannot seem to get the history/passwords/bookmarks to sync to it despite using Firefox Sync. I have enabled these items to be synced, checked that cookies are on, closed and restarted both my computer(s) and firefox multiple times as well as everything else laid out in forums here.

Can anyone help me port my bookmarks over to my new computer?

Thanks.

I just starting using Firefox, and I've installed it on a Mac Laptop, a Windows Desktop, an iPhone, and an iPad.

Each install is logged into the same Firefox account, and each install began with the same set of bookmarks.

Now, when I add or remove a bookmark on one device, it's not syncing to any other device. I've tried this on several devices. I've tried manually clicking the "sync" icon on each device to try to kick it into working.

How can I fix this?

Just last night I updated Firefox to version 78.0.1 on Fedora. I cleared all my history. I had to sign in to Firefox account again for some reason.

And this afternoon I discovered that my Logins and Passwords has gone empty. I use master a password and that is still in effect, and my sync settings includes logins and passwords. I've done this many times--signed in to my Firefox account, set up a master password and I'd see all my saved passwords there after doing a fresh install of my operating system. I don't know what happened now.

I have tried to register TWO secondary emails, only to find that they are both in use. The trouble is THEY ARE BOTH MINE??? They are 1) - [email]@sky.com, and 2)- [emaill]@outlook.com. I have succumbed to using a "primary email address", but I still CANNOT get what I want. IT IS JUST NOT ON. E.G. "A secondary email is an additional address for receiving security notices and confirming new devices. Account already exists". MY ONLY REPLY IS "they would do because they are already mine". so, PLEASE GET IT SORTED OUT. Thankyou. I am getting really fedup with mozilla. It is a good browser, it's just the people that make the rules that do my head in.
