Firefox has begun opening very [very!] slowly, as well as crashing and freezing during use. This is happening on all of my three machines, two running Win 7 and one Win 8. I have tried refreshing and disabling hardware acceleration, but to no avail. Now it seems to freeze on opening and takes a minute or two even to become responsive, if at all. When I look at Task Manager during a freeze I see the Firefox process is using 35-50% of memory [i have 8GB, 12GB and 16GB] and up to 50% of processsor resources. All has been fine until the last couple of weeks. As an adjunct, in the last month I have noticed an almost permanent error message on the status bar - "Sync encountered an error while synchronising: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action."

When I get my bookmarks the way I want them on my computer and delete the ones I do not want it gets messed up. I have 4 computers on my account and every time I sync it brings up old book marks. I have deleted all book marks from my computer and set up a new sync account then deleted all book marks on my other computers. Then I set up the new sync account on all the computers and still brings up Book marks. There should not be any book marks because I deleted all book marks from all computers before I set up the new account. I have done this 2 times and it they come back. How can I clear all my accounts and start over???????????

I have the latest version, 57.0.2 on two desktops and they refuse to communicate bookmarks with sync. 1. Turned off sync on both devices. 2. Turn on sync on comp 1. 3. Wait a while. 4. Turn on sync on comp 2. 5. Wait a while. 6. Sync works with addons and other settings. Fine!

Not a bookmark in sight on comp 2! What is going on? I don't like the idea of having a stick with a bookmarks-file to update manually when I mover around... I've searched everywhere but obviously I have missed something.

Any tips?

Hello, I am a bit of a tinkerer and a tech junkie. However, I still find sync to be a very useful and handy tool, and have it applied to all of my devices (tablets, phone, multiple computers). Due to my never-ending quest to make things better, though, I am frequently changing OS'es and uninstalling apps/rearranging registries on many of these devices, so I often find myself needing to reinstall firefox (and thus re-sync).

The only problem here is that sync recognizes each new iteration as its own separate device, even though a vast majority of them cease to exist entirely and are gone forever. This makes my "Tabs From Other Devices" page a huge pain to access, as most of the device names are the same and a lot still have active pages in them.

How would I go about deleting these old accounts from my sync account? Changing my password does no good at all, as since the devices cannot access the server any longer they are still present in my database, and as such are still annoying. Any help is appreciated!

Two pictures of the problem is as follows. As you can see, there are many apparent duplicate devices: http://imageshack.com/a/img14/5290/a29b.png http://imageshack.com/a/img59/6697/6sp4.png

I work either on my desktop PC or on my notebook. The latest Firefox is installed on both computers (FF10.0)

(1) I am not sure whether I have to start sync manually (tools/sync now) or if this is taken care of automatically on an ongoing basis.

(2) In any case, how do I know when sync has been completed successfully and it's safe to close the browser.

I just don't want to find myself on the road with my latest password updates or bookmarks missing.

I don't see any status info about the sync process. This is very disturbing and not exactly implying trust.

Yours John

I have about 20-30 tabs opened in my computer (under Ubuntu), and a fresh installation of Windows XP in my laptop. Both have the last version of Firefox. I used the option for replacing data in other devices with the existing data in my computer. It seems to sync for several minutes (the button have an animation), first in my computer and then in my laptop when I open the browser. I get all my data synced except for opened tabs.

Also, do Sync take into account the groups of tabs? I usually organize my opened tabs in groups when I'm working in several topics. I'd like to have that exact organization in my two machines.

Thank you in advance.

I have Firefox on my old laptop (PC) with 300+ tabs open. I want to keep those tabs and transfer them so I can see them in Firefox on my new laptop (also PC). So I created my Sync account in Firefox on the old laptop, then logged in with the same account in Firefox on the new laptop. But my tabs were not there. How do I transfer my open tabs?

Hi all, I just noticed that there was an update to Firefox’s sync service and it seems that my old sync details no longer work so I need to move to the new system. Since I do so much of my work and I keep so much highly personal information in Firefox, I just wanted to know how I can check if this new Firefox sync service is safe. Is my personal information safe? Can my personal information be shared with others? Can the Mozilla people access my personal information? I didn’t want to use Firefox Sync until I was 100% certain that it was safe and nobody could access my personal information such as the Mozilla people or anyone else.

Hi there, How do you force a sync of Firefox desktop?

When I click the menu button > choose my account name and open Options > Select the Sync panel... there isn't anything there to click on to force a sync. The only things listed are the items that I want synced (with the tick enabled).

If I go to "about:home" and click on sync it opens up the same sync panel as above, but nothing happens.

The only way I can get it to sync is to, sign out of my Firefox account and sign back in.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

At the bottom of the image verification box are the buttons for :sync options", "next", "back", and "cancel". Since no word image is visible, there is nothing to type into the text field and therefore, when I hit "next", I am treated to the white "x" in the little red circle icon and "Incorrect words. Try again". So I can get nowhere with this. Any possible solution?? Thanks.

I thought Firefox Sync was supposed to sync open tabs. It doesn't seem to do anything like that, or am I missing something that should be obvious?

I primarily use Firefox on a remote desktop Windows OS but the delay when watching video is painful so I like to back out to my native Mac OS. I have FF Sync set up on both so I figured if I opened up my Mac FF while the remote Windows FF was still open to the page I wanted, it would give me that page. It doesn't. I tried Syncing before moving over but that didn't help either.

So what's the deal with Firefox Sync in regards to tabs? Is it supposed to sync my open tabs or not? If so, what do I need to do to make that happen?

Thanks.

Hello.

At a time when the sharing or sync'ing of information is so important, the current Firefox sync service is a disgraceful shambles. What makes this even worse, is your continuing refusal to get it properly sorted.

As appears obvious from your Twitter feed, this has been going on since April 2013.

Yet you expect mobile devices to adopt Firefox OS. Yet you can't even manage your current sync structure reliably.

Chrome's sync'ing works easily and fine between my laptop and Android devices. It is also much simpler to set up.

I find it hard to believe that you fail to prevent Firefox's slide. Enough daydreaming about new solutions, until you sort out the current mess called Sync.

Hi, i have just recently started having an issue with Sync on my desktop. My associated Android and Mac Laptop do not experience any issues when attempting to sync, but the desktop constantly gives the same error. I have tried unpairing the desktop, clearing all files, restarting and then adding the desktop to sync once again, but the error persists.

All of the bookmarks on the desktop have vanished, but are still in my sync data and have no problems being viewed on the other paired devices. This also tells me that the issue isn't the sync server and is something unique to the desktop machine.

I am hoping that this won't require a reinstall, but if all else fails, it is an option. I will try to attach a log file once i have submitted the question.
