Firefox will never ever open in maximized window after I log in with my Firefox account and make some changes to the toolbars. Advanced properties to make maximizing default won't work either. It hasn't worked for many Firefox versions I've tried and that caused me to use Chrome. But if you manage to fix this problem, I'll be more than happy to stick with Firefox.

Firefox has become completely unusable for me because it has become very slow. It was fine on this computer (newer i7, 32GB ram, ssd) last weekend but not this. It is actually happening on two different computers. It becomes impossible to type (echo is seconds and windows reports that the application is not responsive).

However sysinternals procexp doesn't report anything much unusual for the computer as whole or FF. Speed test shows that my internet connection is fine and Chrome is working normally

I have paired sync down to only bookmarks and add-ons of which there are only 5.

The problem may be due to sync - FF seems to perform normally in safe mode or before it has asked for the master password.

I have a beef with visibility around sync - it doesn't seem to be possible to see how often it is running, how much data it is sending, how many disk writes are happening.

I am submitting this report from Chrome because FF is unusable.

I'm trying to log back into Firefox Sync, when I get the authorsiation code to my email Inbox, I enter it into the Firefox login screen. I've tried Copying & Pasting and manually typing the code, but no matter what I get the message "Invalid Authorisation Code" then after several attempts - I have to wait another 15 minutes before trying again.

I don't want to reset my password, as I don't want to loose all my bookmarks, history, saved passwords etc...

Windows 10 (1903). Quite often I find that sync never completes, the spinning wheel, it just keeps spinning. I have to exit Firefox and restart, and upon restart I need to kill the previous Firefox instance. Then, and only then, will sync work. But not for long, usually in a few hours it's hung up again. This only happens on my Windows 10 machine (sync works fine with my FF mobile and Windows 7 devices).

I did a Firefox restore due to suspect browser hijack ( it wasn't). All mu saved logins have been eraases so tried to do a manaul sync.

This pops up a yellow bar along the top of the "Logins and Paswords" page saying "Please enter your master password to view saved logics and passwords" . I don't have a master password set so that makes little sense. To the right of the yellow bar is a button "login". if i click the button ther yellow bar goes away but there is no log in dialog.

What do I do to get Fiefox to sync?

I had a lot of important bookmarks in Firefox without signed in Firefox account on my old PC. Before moving away from that old PC, I signed in to firefox account to it connect Firefox data with my mail and account. I even tested that in way that I signed out from my account, removed all the data from Firefox, and when I signed in again, it was all there. It was about 5 months ago. Now, on my new PC, when I signed in with same account, there is no any those bookmarks. I tried to restore bookmarks, but it offers me only two time points in past for restoring, and none of those gives me back bookmarks or any other data. I didn't use that account with Firefox until now. Please help, there was a lot of important bookmarks to me for work.

I have several system that all use Firefox and are configured to use sync. All of them, but this one sync fine. The one with the issue is on a RHEL 7.5 host and is running FireFox 52.8.0. What is odd is that I was able to register the system with sync, but when I click on the sync icon, nothing happens. The sync logs indicate some errors:

I have many, many bookmark - all the the toolbar folder. Most of them sync, but a few folders won't for some reason. "Sync now" seems to have no effect.

I used to use Xmarks, and Xmarks had a lot more control over syncing. You could force upload (overwrite server) and force download (overwrite local), for one thing - that could often be used to fix sync issues. You could also view your server bookmark list online (via web).

How can I troubleshoot this? Or how can I force a sync?

I"ve read through other articles. My firefox and sync are up to date. I have bookmarks checked. I use two firefox on two different microsoft PCs. I tried changing my options in sync to see if the chances would show up in firefox on my other computer. They did, so I have that much right. I tried turning off bookmarks in the sync, syncing, then clicking the box and syncing again. I want to say it can't be me, but of course it has to be or everyone would be having the same problem.

Recently got a new work desktop computer and when Firefox 68.0.1 was installed, it will not sync with my home desktop computer. On both computers, in the "Devices and Apps", both do show up as connected, but the work computer still will not sync. When I click to "connect another device", it only tried to install Firefox on my phone - no other option. I have spent 15 hours doing everything I can find on line to fix, but nothing works. I even uninstalled Firefox and ALL related items on my work computer and tried to install a couple of older versions, thinking maybe I could get it to sync and then do an update; however when ever I try to install any older version, it only installs 68.0.1. I am a CEO/software engineer I know my way around computers very well, but still can not solve this problem. I may be forced to switch browsers.
