I have gotten a new computer to replace a new one that was defective & have been trying to sync the new new one & I can't get it to sync.

I generate a 9 digit code from the defective one to enter it into the new computer but then it asks for a sync recovery code which I never was asked for before when I synced. I said I lost it & I generated a new one. When I put the code in that was generated from the other computer it doesn't accept it & says it's not valid. I've even tried saying I lost the computer & let it generate a new code & it won't accept that.

I unsynched the defective computer & it still won't work.

I'm getting very frustrated because I can't access my add on's, etc.

I can't even find a phone number to call & get help from anyone. VERY FRUSTRATED!!!!

I need to get this resolved fast because I have to return this computer!!!!

HELP!

I have been using Firefox Sync since it was an extension called Weave and it has worked perfectly until now.

I was using Firefox Aurora on Ubuntu 14.04 but I had to uninstall Ubuntu completely from my computer and install Windows 7. The point is that on Windows I tried with Firefox Aurora (34) and Release (32) to recover my bookmarks and none of them is syncing. Everything looks to work fine, even I can see a message saying "Firefox will begin syncing momentarily" after logging in with my account but that never happens. It says it's correctly synced but I never get the bookmarks/history from my old Ubuntu.

I have more devices connected to my account but only can access one them right now, it is my Android phone where I have Firefox Beta (33). There everything works fine, I have my bookmarks as they were in my Ubuntu.

Any idea what's going on? Let me know if you need any other information.

Today for no reason all my saved passwords on my desktop Firefox browser have disappeared. Fortunately on my android phone they all still exist. I have tried to sync and on Android it confirms sync has happened but the passwords will still not show on the desktop browser. Only new passwords now entered are being recorded.

I have never had this problem ever and have done nothing today that would cause this to happen

I have the most recent FF 66 and up to date Windows 10

Any suggestions welcome please.

When I try to set up my desktop firefox account, I always get "WRONG RECOVERY KEY" message on sync tab. Initially I was using by backuped key but it wasn't valid. Then I cleared sync account data, deleted account, created new account. Just after finishing new account setup, every time after windows showing that sync will start soon, when I come back to sync window I ALWAYS find there "wrong recovery key" message. I've read most sync articles available none solved my problem.

Hi there,

I am a long time Firefox User and occasional donor. I also work in Open Source for my day job.

I am just going to ask here for someone to point me to some documentation on bookmarks for Firefox. I cannot understand the logic of bookmarks that appear in 2 different bookmark folders at once when adding a bookmark to only 1 of them.

Also as of late, every time I open firefox, my bookmarks are rearranged or "missing," but a long hunt usually finds it sitting in the unsorted or other bookmarks folder - somehow.

The more i try to fix the issue, the more wonky it gets and I seem to have an ever growing lists of duplicates in unsorted/other bookmarks. I know that its officially Other Book marks now, but i see the old name still being used in the support pages and posts.

Can someone provide a simple, non-engineer, non-developer grandma can understand it place to fix this issue before i just move to another browser to save myself the now daily hunt for my lost bookmarks?

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.

I set up sync on my previous laptop and synced with two other PCs some time ago. A couple of months ago I damaged that laptop and it no longer works. However, the tabs open on that laptop when it died are still appearing in "Tabs from other devices" on my new laptop and the two other PCs.

How can I stop this from happening?
