I was trying to use the sync function on my MacBook Pro. However, the browser does not seem to log in at all. In the top right menu, it still shows the "sign in" button, instead of my email address. (see the attached pictures which I captured from my mac and a virtual machine running Firefox ESR on Debian. Another test on the flatpak version on the vertural machine apears to be normal.

Checks on account activities indicates the login histroy exsits, yet the syncing function remains unavailable.

the browser on the Mac is Version 102.0.1 (64-bit) which apears to be up to date the browser on the virtual machine is Version 91.11.0esr (64-bit)

information for the systems and machines can be found in the pictures attached.

I have Firefox Sync enabled in my Firefox browser on a few computers. When I logged in to Firefox Sync initially, it did sync-up my new computer with all of the saved bookmarks and history. I am not sure if any of my logins were saved). When I go to websites and login, I am prompted with the dialog to save my credentials, and I say ok, save. But the logins are not remembered. And in my about:logins page shows "no logins found". I don't care about retrieving any old logins, I just want to be able to save new ones and get the default behavior of saving logins working again.

I know the answer to this is probably going to be along the lines of this is not possible, but I thought I'd ask anyway since none of the information is entirely clear. Or answers my exact question.

I have one desktop install of firefox and I have two android ones. I have all three synced to one firefox account, so it's easy to grab links I saved while wiki diving on something. While this works perfectly for the desktop side of things, the mobile side is where the issue arises.

Currently all my bookmarks from both mobile firefox accounts are merged into one long set, regardless of device. While the desktop ones have their own folder. Is there a way to keep the bookmarks from each device in their own separate folder? Like say instead of having one big mobile bookmarks folder, having one named DeviceX, and the other DeviceY?

It's still semi functional on desktop where I have more screen real estate and have to deliberately go to the mobile bookmarks folder, but on the phones it can be confusing when a set of bookmarks from device 1 mixes randomly into those of device 2. As it can become a lot harder to keep track of things.

Now I know one can turn off syncing of bookmarks. This is not what I'm looking for as I do still want to be able to share them between all three devices. Just have them more organised.

I also know one can make different accounts for say work or personal, but again I want them all to sync, just not mix them into one list.

So in short is there a way to be able to have two android devices into a threeway sync and keep the bookmarks separate? Or is my only option the round abound way of making subfolders and hope I remember to save in those?

Thanks either way.

Hey all,

after 3 years I finally did a complete reset (all folders were kept, only full software reset) of my system hoping that Firefox Sync would after I reinstall Firefox and put in my registration data remember all my bookmarks / logins. However, after my login there is nothing there. I have the suspicion that Firefox thinks I just deleted all my bookmarks and it updated to Firefox Sync accordingly not with an empty space. I still have the data on my android phone which hasnt done a synchronization yet. Any help you guys can give me? Took quite some time to get all my setup arranged.

Thanks in advance!

Best, Seb

I have Firefox on 3 devices, I deleted several passwords from 1 device expecting this change to sync to the other 2 devices. Instead for several days the 2 devices showed the original number of passwords whilst the device I made the changes on showed the new amount. Now that device appears to have resynced the passwords I deleted. Am I supposed to delete them on each device?

I have the latest version of FF on all devices.

Firefox Reverting Back to 115 and Creates New Profile

I can sync my home desktop (Windows 10), home tablet (Windows 11), and phone (Android) just fine, but I am having trouble syncing with my work desktop (Windows 10). As I can work from home, I would like to keep my bookmarks, history, etc. synced.

While at work, when I start Firefox, it says that I am running an older version of Firefox and either need to create a new profile or exit to avoid problems. So I create a new profile, then update to 117, then restart Firefox, and things are fine for a bit. Eventually though, if I exit Firefox, it will go through this cycle again the next time I start Firefox. When I check the version after starting, it says that I am on version 115, even though I already updated to 117. I went into about:profiles I saw that there were several profiles there: default, default-release, then default-release-1, 2, etc., with the most recent number being the one currently in use.

Could this be some sort of organizational setting that is preventing the update from sticking? Is 117 not 'backwards compatible' with 115, so to speak, with regards to syncing? Any way to work around this? Any insights here would be appreciated.

I have a disability and totally forgot about this question BUT it is still an issue I would like to find a resolution too, so I am going to try to restate it -- but know I stopped working 2 years ago ... so maybe a resolution isnt horribly required :P


My old question: (This is an issue regardless of platform - MacOS, Linux, or Windows...)


I do a lot of OS switching - I test various Linux distros on my (was 5) but now 3 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 (I actually stopped using Sync mainly because of this 'Sync' issue -- how do I know what I have is actually being sync'ed?) I have learned to live with uncertainty not because Firefox is bad or anything but because "I want to be in control of my Data, not someone else...I had thought FF Sync would help me do that but I fear it hasnt and maybe because of my disability it has just gotten worse ..." ... not to even mention FF dropped FF Lockwise - which I loved!  :P

Anyways, this has bugged my off and on for a long time but I have mostly ignored the issue ... until a couple of years ago I discovered I had like 20+ some odd devices on my account -- going back 3+ 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 and when I start Sync are all of them brought back? Even from 6+ months ago? The one's that were years old I signed out of and deleted but still ... and so, since I use FF for testing and I thought that there shouldn't be that much in each 'sync' test device ... it is sort of confusing...

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 - in the FF past releases 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!

PPS - I have not tried the first solution offered in the old question yet... I am leaning toward giving up on Sync and just using HTML Bookmark files ... it is messier but I know it is my data - unchanged and unyielding :P Thanks  :)
