Sync:HTML backup after Sync size is less to Latest backup before Sync.[UPDATE:3rdMARCH2019]

1. Synced my Firefox sync account

2. Disconnected my Firefox sync account

3. Reinstalled windows

4. Installed Firefox 56 (I was using 63 but i only had 56 installer)

5. Updated it to 65.0.1.

6. Connected my Firefox sync account


Problem -

1. All bookmarks didn't sync.

I created bookmark HTML backups and it were of 6mb and my latest backup is 171mb.

There are 2980 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after again connecting to FirefoxSync. I used WinMerge.

2. HTML backups also contain fav-icons [and Firefox Sync only syncs links not fav-icons.]

When browser is used fav-icons are loaded but after sync fav-icons are loaded as pages are loaded , so there are no fav-icons and html backup size is less than the last backup.

3. Could be related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251781

4. There could be something wrong with Firefox's Exporting. Imported the same 173mb HTML to chrome and Firefox then exported HTML backups. Firefox Export was of 61.1Mb Chrome Export was of 12.9Mb

Why do I get the "incorrect account name or password" error every time I launch firefox?

I've created a sync account so that my laptop and desktop can share bookmarks, history, etc., but every time I launch FF, I get the yellow bar at the bottom of windows saying:

"Sync encountered an error while syncing: Incorrect account name or password. Sync will automatically retry this action."

I go into my sync preferences and manually log into sync. It seems fine. It tells me that syncing will begin.

Stuff syncs.

Then if I have to relaunch firefox, the same thing happens. Why is it not storing the password?

This happens on both laptop and desktop, which are Macs on Yosemite running Firefox 35.0.

About:config line keeps changing after Sync?

There is a line in about:config that is suspected of causing issues with preferences sync (no firefox preferences are synced).

"services.sync.engine.prefs.modified"

It is set to false by default, and when i change it to True it will change back to false after a Sync.

Also when i try to change that line a new one appears called "services.sync.engineStatusChanged.prefs.modified" and it is set to True?

I have tried changing "services.sync.engine.prefs.modified" setting to True on both of my PCs (windows 7) that are used for sync, but it always resets to false.

It looks like the firefox sync server is enforcing the "false" setting for some reason?! Is there any way to force "services.sync.engine.prefs.modified" to stay on True?

I formatted my computer 30th April and started all over to get my Mozilla working and have all of my bookmarks and passwords. As always I tried to log into Sync and have my info back but, as soon as I entered both email/pass and recover key none of my 'personal bookmarks' and /or passwords were visible. I tried to get a new recovery key in case it was wrong and now I finally synced it but I only have 2-3 passwords that I saved till today. So I would like you to somehow restore my account 3-4 days ago were I actually hadn't formatted and had all of my passwords(MOST important actually). Thank you for your time .

I synced my profile, and I retrieved my bookmarks, but I opened my Firefox profile with another version of Firefox, and it erased my bookmarks, and now I can't retrieve my bookmarks from my synced account.

Is there a way for me to get my bookmarks please? Surely it has to be in the database somewhere.

Thanks for your kind and prompt reply, but I'm still confused. I don't want to see the sync page at all. I simply want to click on the Firefox icon on my dock, see the search box, and fill it in with what I want to find. How can I arrange that? Once I get this straightened out, I will be happy to use some of Firefox's extensions.

Thanks in advance!

Firefox freezes for few seconds while syncing new bookmarks. Happens everytime I add a bookmark or when I chage a folder's place.

Everytime I bookmark some site, firefox syncs it right away, which is good in a way. But it takes a few seconds (around 5 secs) and whil FF syncs the whole window freezes. Means nothing responds anymore, not to a click nor to a roll over or scroll.

It's quite annoying actually.

So I'd say : FireFox should run this sync in background of other tasks, seamlessly.

If FF cannot run this sync in background of other tasks, is there a way to tell sync ton only sincronize just before quitting or such ?

OR, is there a way to quickly shut sync down and activate it back up when needed ?

Thanks for the answers to this time consumming problem.
