firefox sync lists all the synced tabs in a side bar but doesn't open them

Hello

I do not understand how firefox sync is supposed to work. I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is FF 85 on Linux Mint (I cannot get a later version due to some querk) The laptop is 99 on Windows 10 Both are signed in to sync but my bookmarks were scrambled so I signed out the laptop and cleared the profile, cleaned up the bookmarks in the desktop and to be safe I tried just syncing the tabs, not the bookmarks, by opening the fresh firefox on the laptop and signing in again. In the sidebar under my account icon I clicked "Synchronise now" and the open tabs from my desktop appeared in a list underneath, jumbled up. (I have 2 separate windows open on the desktop with different tabs in each, but this separation was not followed either, there didn’t seem to be any provision for syncing tabs in two separate windows)

But the row of tabs didn’t open, all I can do is open them one by one from the list on the right, this is a slow process as every time I click on a tab in the list the new page opens in the same single tab, not a new one, but the sidebar closes again.

Is this what’s supposed to happen? I was expecting the synced row of tabs to open automatically.

This feature would have been useful as my OS on the desktop, (Linux Mint) tends to crash and to have the on the laptop would be a good backup.

Incidentally the other way I try to back up the lost tabs is to select them all and bookmark them to a new folder which I call “backup” but it seems this doesn’t necessarily duplicate them, which I would prefer, so any of the open tabs that were previously bookmarked risk being removed from the original bookmarked folder, without my noticing, and I am therefore reluctant to delete the backup folder without checking that it doesn’t contain the only bookmark of a page.

When I came back to syncing the bookmarks, how do I avoid them getting scrambled again?

I am setting up an new computer and after installing Firefox on the new computer, I synced Firefox with my old computer. The bookmarks from my old computer show up in the Library under "Manage Bookmarks," but they are not showing up in my Bookmarks Dropdown menu. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to display them in my dropdown menu.

This morning when I turned on my PC, Mozilla didn't restore my previous session across 4 different browser windows. Normally, it restores my session (and the 4 windows) automatically. But this time, it didn't. I opened Mozilla, but the "restore previous session" option didn't generate the previously open windows.

I've lost hundreds of tabs that I had open... is there any way to restore my previous session?

Thanks in advance!

My saved logins are gone after Firefox "wrong way" synced my profile to a device without my logins

I used Firefox's saved logins feature for years and had over 100 logins saved on my laptop. I also use Firefox on my IOS phone. After an update (I don't know which one,… (tuilleadh eolais)

I used Firefox's saved logins feature for years and had over 100 logins saved on my laptop. I also use Firefox on my IOS phone.

After an update (I don't know which one, updates are frequent), the app on my phone stopped showing my passwords for most of my accounts. For example, in the passwords section of my Firefox IOS app, it would show the names of the over 100 websites I had saved logins for, but would say there was nothing saved as an email/username or password, just empty boxes. There were 8 logins for accounts I had created on my phone, and those ones did display.

I eventually got tired this and tried to sync my account so I would have all of the passwords I saved on my laptop and on my phone, but Firefox, instead of combining the over 100 logins on my laptop with the 8 logins on my phone, removed all of the over 100 logins I had saved on my laptop and replaced them with the 8 logins that were saved on my phone. My phone also still has the 8 logins.

Now I am missing most of my logins, including the email accounts I used and passwords. This is a big issue for me because I've used multiple emails across my accounts. Resetting all of my passwords will be impossible, and I need to access the over 100 saved logins that are no longer on any of my devices.

I followed the instructions in the "Recover user data missing after Firefox update" support page. The only other profile that showed up for me has no logins saved at all, so that's a dead end. I read other pages about "wrong way syncing", but its too late for me to try to tell Firefox my laptop was the master account because the damage is already done.

I need to know if there's a way to recover my profile with all my accounts. Please, share any information that could be helpful. I need it badly.

Edit: grammar mistakes

I have 2fa enabled on my account, is there a way to skip/disable the third step where I have to enter a code from an email? It's already redundant with 2fa. Plus, the runaround of "enter your email, enter your password, get email, enter the code, oops your password is wrong!" is irritating enough :) It just seems unnecessarily difficult.

I use Firefox sync between multiple devices, including a desktop and a laptop on Ubuntu Linux. This is done through a Firefox account. Both Ubuntu devices mentioned run Firefox 108.0 for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

I'm signed in on this Firefox account on my laptop (from which I'm writing this message). I recently (some months ago) changed my primary e-mail, since I may lose access to the older e-mail account soon. Now, suddenly, on my Ubuntu Desktop I received a message that I need to sign in to sync. When I click on "sign in", it takes me to tab that lists my primary e-mail address and asks for my password. I enter the password that I know is correct (it is listed under my saved logins on this Ubuntu laptop and the e-mail listed is the primary e-mail address with which I am signed in on my laptop, writing this message; it is also listed on my Firefox account details as my primary e-mail address). I then get a red message on tab stating "Primary account e-mail required for sign in", despite the fact that it is with my primary e-mail that I am attempting to sign in! I've tried it multiple times, to no avail.

At least two other users have posted about related concerns this year: (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1368875 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1395902). However, nothing has been done to resolve this issue. I have followed all instructions provided for changing my primary e-mail address. This is definitely a fault on Mozilla's side and not mine. Please resolve this urgently, users risk losing vast amounts of data, through no fault of their own, if you fail to do so.

I use synching between phone and desktop. I deleted some bookmarks on my phone and synced phone and desktop Firefox. I would expect that the deleted bookmarks also disappear on my desktop FF under "Mobile Bookmarks", but nothing changes. Worse than that, after I added one more bookmark on my phone and synced, the deleted bookmarks showed up again on my phone. It seems the not deleted bookmarks on desktop are transferred again to my phone. This is actually not what I want...

I am trying to create a new Firefox account with it's own email to be separate from this Firefox account I am posting from. However, every time I try to follow the "sign up" buttons I get redirected to the login page where I enter what I want as the new account info and receive a "Primary email account required for sign in" The email I'm trying to use for my new account is NOT registered with Firefox and I am using a freshly installed version of the browser on a new PC so no extensions are interfering.

Is there a way in Firefox to have quicker access to saved logins than through the menu structure? The menus are four layers deep, which is frustrating as it is difficult to remember the route when only using the feature occasionally. Some websites don't respect the Firefox Password Manager, so it sometimes becomes necessary to manually find the credentials.

Is there any way to create a bookmark to the saved login section?

Is there perhaps an add-on?

Thanks for any answers.

I have a Firefox account in order to use the sync capabilities. After a sync between desktop and phone the desktop bookmarks are on my phone in an extra folder "desktop bookmarks" and vice versa the phone bookmarks are in folder "Mobile bookmarks" in my desktop Firefox. Is this normal behaviour? I would expect them in one common folder to have a seamless synching.

Best regards, Walter
