I noticed that on my laptop a few days ago I only had 12 passwords dating back to about September 2023 but previously I had had upwards of 80 saved passwords in my Firefox account. I didn’t think too much of it because all of my passwords were still available on my desktop and my mobile devices. however I checked yesterday and the same thing happened to the rest of my devices. Only 12 recently saved passwords were available. while troubleshooting I may have made the problem worse because now there are no saved passwords. Is there any way I can restore my 80+ passwords so that I don’t have to go through and reset all of them one by one which would be very time-consuming and annoying. Any help would be appreciated please please please thank you.

Good morning!

Since v112.0.2 my Firefox logged itself out of Sync and will not allow me log back in. When I click the "Sync and Save Data" in the pulldown menu, the page spinner just spins and spins. The login page never loads.

Oddly, I couldn't even login to my Mozilla account here to post this. I had to use "Ungoogled" Chromium to load the page. I've never had any Sync issues with FF, that I can remember. This just "appeared" with v112.0.2 and continues with v113.0.

I did try to access the Sync login page while in Safe (Troubleshooting) Mode... no difference, though; same spinning spinner.

I'm running Slackware Linux on a desktop computer. No other changes have been made on this system other than upgrading from FF v112.0.1. to v112.0.2. This is when the Sync issue started.

Any ideas? Any assitance would be very much appreciated. I could just go to Chromium full-time, but I would not want to do that. I've been a Mozilla browser user for 23 years. The Chromium is only on my system as a backup browser, along with SeaMonkey. Yeah... I have a Seamonkey. :)

Anyway, thanks in advance for any help/ideas to allow me to troubleshoot/resolve this.

Regards,

~Eric

Hello,

I have not had any problems with Firefox sync and passwords until recently. I used to use Firefox on desktop, on an iPad, and on an android, with no issues accessing my passwords. Recently I replaced my android phone with an iPhone, and after signing onto Firefox sync on said iPhone, the list of my passwords was accessible on the iPhone, but when i used it for auto-fill, it would only load the username, but not the password. This caused no issue with Firefox sync on desktop or iPad however, so I just let it be. However, after 3 months of no issue, when I open both my iPad and desktop today, all my old passwords are gone, and replaced with the few passwords I directly saved with Firefox on my iPhone.

i have tried restoring my old Firefox profile using backup software to access older files, but I am unable to regain my passwords this way. I have tried using profile data from several date ranges and that has not helped either. The issue seems to lie with Firefox sync with iOS, but I am at an absolute loss on how to resolve this, so any help at all would be much appreciated.

Using Firefox View, I am unable to view my tabs from other devices after setting up Sync. It is saying Check your internet connection. If you’re using a firewall or proxy, check that Firefox has permission to access the web. as if I don't have a correctly configured connection. However I indeed do and am able to browse the web without any issues. I should mention that I'm running the latest stable flatpak and I'm wondering if this could be related but I have no idea how to manipulate the flatpak to make this work.

Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help with this. I recently signed into a shared computer with my personal Firefox account, and it automatically imported all my history, my browser extensions, and bookmarks, including personal/secure information that I wouldn't want on a shared computer. I tried signing out and deleting the sites and login information, even going so far as to completely delete all of my browsing history and cookies and signing in with another account, but all the supposedly deleted history and logins and extensions were then transferred to this second account. I have deleted all my data, even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and all the data from my personal account keeps haunting me as suggestions when I type in the task bar or suggested usernames when I log in to websites. How can I actually delete this information so it's not on a shared computer? Thank you!

I had a hard drive fail and needed to do an entire new install. One of the very first things I do is install firefox and sync so I have all my sites tabs and passwords.

I did this and got the Secure connection failed errors instantly thereafter. no reboot nothing fixed it. Bing chrome opera all fail to work. refusing all secure connections. It will load microsoft but I cannot log in. It will load 1000 other sites as long as they are not the SSL pages. No other browser will load either.

This is instantly after signing in to sync.

I was left with no choice but to assume something got corrupted and wipe and redo windows AGAIN on this new drive.

This time I downloaded everything with bing and edge. Then when I was done after two days. I downloaded FF and tested it.

Worked great.

Signed into sync and BAM, all browsers and all websites refuse connections.

I have signed out of sync. I have deleted firefox. I have cleared SSL and DNS and every other setting I can think of or that chat gpt suggested. from cmd line. hard.

No remaining browsers will load. New firefox with no profile and no sync will load.

Whatever sync DID remains totally systemic and persistent and ONLY a total wipe of the drive fixed it last time.

Why will FF simply DO something like this and WTF did it do?

Firefox version: Mozilla Firefox for Linux Mint mint-001 - 1.0 (123.0 64-bit). OS: Linux Mint 21.3.

I have signed into my account and turned on sync. I have also clicked "Sync now". It does not sync. I have seen numerous support requests like this. The usual responses (make sure you are logged in with the right account, sign out and sign in again, restart Firefox, uninstall and reinstall) do not produce the desired result.

From the other questions I have seen, people are as perplexed about this as I am. Some wait days before, by no apparent trigger, sync starts working. Or perhaps it doesn't.

It is very important to me that this should be syncing. I really do not want to wait days on the off-chance that something might happen.

And yes, I am 100% certain that I am logged into the correct Firefox account.

Grateful for help in resolving this.

Hi,

On September 15, 2022 I created this thread here on Firefox Support Forum and now I finally have an answer to the question, but as we can see my thread was archived and I can't update anything, so I decided to create a new thread just to mark my previous question as solved and bring it an answer.

I contacted Mozilla Firefox developers and got a response: Firefox is no longer integrated with Gravatar. Considering this, I can tranquilly say there is no bug or problem with my account as I thought. It's a pity that Firefox no longer support Gravatar integration, and even if I use an old version I will face the same "issue" because the Gravatar integration was a online feature linked to the Firefox account*, not to the browser itself.

Info source: https://github.com/mozilla/fxa/issues/15665

Admins can now archive and close this thread, I only ask to keep it online to help who may need this information in the future. Thanks.

  • Actually I made a mistake when I wrote this, the Gravatar integration was an online feature linked to the Mozilla account, not Firefox. James explained the distinction on #4 post of the current thread.

Last edit: On January 31, 2023 I created this thread on r/firefox but no one answered precisely. This current thread here on Firefox Support Forum also solves what was asked on reddit. The thread created on January 31, 2023 and posted on r/firefox was archived as well, like what happened to my thread with the same theme here on Firefox Support Forum, then I also created a new thread on r/firefox to mark my question as solved.

Hi

I am a web dev, and need FF help on this. All of my sync data is gone, I sign out and back in twice, I checked the profiles there's only one, all of my bookmarks, plugins & extensions everything is gone. Please I need those bookmarks some of them were very important to me I can't lose those.

Back-story: I recently want to try two distro that I had been on my list from quite a while now, VanillaOS & BlendOS, I worked on those for 3 or 4 days, before switching back to Arch, on both of them everything was working fine, I had all of my data. On Arch I had to reset my password because I forgot. Then the issue started, at first I thought maybe my internet was slow or something but now on the 2nd my data is still not synced.

I even signed out and back in, I checked the profiles(screenshot below). What should I do?

Let me start off with I've read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-if-im-locked-out-two-step-authentication

I use a password manager and when I tried to sign in it told me the password was incorrect. Little bit concerning, I reset it. Things are going good. It asks me for my 2fa. I enter it. Incorrect. I try it again. Incorrect. Third time. Incorrect. I make sure both my devices' time is correct. They are. I try a separate device. Same issue. I go grab my USB with my backup codes. I put them in. Backup authentication code not found.

And according to the article I'm basically being told to go sodomize myself as Mozilla doesn't provide any support outside of community support.

Is there anything that can be done?

So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox because it keeps freezing and crashing after a Windows update. My thought process was that it was alright for me to do it since I can always log in and have my bookmarks and other stuff synched. But now I don't see any option that lets me recover all my data. Did I messed up and threw away my years worth of data or can I still recover them?

Dangerous Sync Language and Help with Fixing Sync Profile

There are 2 processes involved in Firefox Sync, and 0 differentiation between them in the language used to describe what Firefox Sync does in any of the documentation, this makes nearly every discussion on the topic highly confusing to borderline misleading.

When you press Sync, you are pushing settings to Firefox servers. When you sign in to Sync, you are pulling settings from Firefox servers.

Both of these steps are referred to interchangeably as "syncing" and there is next to no documentation of what causes each to occur nor what they actually do.

Why is this dangerous you might ask? Well, let's say I buy a new computer, I want to set it up the same way I use all my devices, so I sign in to sync to synchronize my settings, makes perfect sense. Nothing tells me anything is happening when I sign in, so I click the sync button because I want to synchronize my settings with my other devices. Big mistake. I've just overwritten the server-side sync profile with a default Firefox profile. You know how you fix that? You sign in and press the sync button to overwrite the sync profile again. But you know what happens when you sign in? You become synced with the now blank sync profile and lose all the settings that you want to be pushing to the sync profile. This just happened to me. Thankfully I was only choosing to sync add-ons and options AT THE TIME and I have backups that are about 6 months old and I rarely change settings, but some things like my homepage URLs are something that I do change fairly often, and I'm sure some additional sites were whitelisted since by default I just reject all cookies. I also thankfully use policies.json to block updates so I didn't immediately get assaulted by that too.

SO! I HIGHLY suggest that when merely signing in to Sync, the default should be for syncing to be off to start off with, so that you can choose what to "sync" BEFORE it occurs. However, because of the language, the question arises, what am I choosing to sync for? Am I choosing what to PULL from servers? Or am I choosing what gets PUSHED to the servers? When syncing is turned on, does that mean I an pulling the settings that I have chosen? Or am I am pulling ALL settings while only pushing what I have chosen IF I click the Sync button? Or do I push EVERYTHING?

It's incredibly unclear how the Sync feature works and both of the "main" articles on it are completely useless for understanding it because the term "sync" is used interchangeably for pushing or pulling settings.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-choose-what-information-sync-firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-custom-preferences

What are the correct steps to rectify this horrid situation? Sign-in, set-up sync, choose "Options" and "Add-Ons" again, THEN copy over the backup settings, THEN Sync them to the "cloud"? If I have 2 different devices setup with sync, and 1 chooses to sync options and the other chooses to sync bookmarks, then I click sync on BOTH devices repeatedly, what occurs?
