I had established and used a Firefox sync account.

I had problems with my configuration so i disconnected my main computer and my laptop from logging in.

I now wish to establish the FireFox configuration on this computer as the template configuration, but if i log into the account i fear that those existing settings that contained fault somewhere are going to start downloading and over-riding these settings.

Would anyone out there be so kind as to advise how i can safely accomplish this while using my existing credentials, and if not possible, the least complicated alternative?

Thank-You for considering my problem!!!

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

Hi,

I wanted to add one of my email address, let's call it A, as a secondary address for my firefox account, B. However, it tells me that the address has already been verified by another user.

I checked, I did have another firefox account (since gmail, accepts "." in the name, I created by accident two accounts...B&C), but address A is not visible in either B or C.

If I try to connect with A, I don't have password which match. If I ask to reset the password, it asks for the primary address...which is not B or C! At that point I'm running out of email address that could have been used ^^ There is no address D.

I have deleted the account C just to be sure.

How can I identify where address A has been used? How to use address A as a primary/secundary address ?

Unable to Sync Notes by Firefox

I recently did a clean install of Window's on my computer. I have a Firefox account and am signed into sync, but I don't know how to get my add-ons and settings back. When I go to "Manage Your Extensions" I see all of them there, but I don't know how to make it so that their icons are viewable in my Toolbar where I can click and use them. What few add-ons I am able to get to show up in the Toolbar I got by either going directly to the add-ons website and installing from there, or by uninstalling them via the add-ons Manager page and then reinstalling. Which in my opinion defeats the whole point of having a Firefox account and sync activated.

Of critical importance is my need to get back the information that I had stored in Notes by Firefox. I was finally able to get the add-on to show up in the Toolbar buy following the above mentioned steps, however I am unable to sign in to Sync. Below I have listed each of the step I take along with attaching screenshots. 1) Click on Sign in to Sync - This opens a new Firefox browser window that prompts me to enter my email to continue to Notes. 2) I enter my email and click the blue Continue button. 3) I enter my password and click the blue Sign in button. 4) I enter my Two Factor Authentication. 5) The browser window that opened when I clicked Sign in to Sync closes and I'm back where I was when I started the Sync process, but now instead of showing Sign in to Sync Notes shows Reconnect to Sync with a warning triangle on the left side. 6) I Click to Reconnect to Sync and got through steps 2 - 5 but Notes still shows the warning triangle with the Reconnect to Sync message.

At no point in this process do I get any error message or invalid credentials prompt.

Please help!

Hi, I've tried finding the solution online but I can't. My old computer broke a while ago but all my data on Sync was backup up, and I've been accessing it from my Android phone and other laptops just fine. I just got a new laptop and wanted to sign into Sync to get all my data on here. However, even after syncing, nothing is showing up (bookmarks, saved passwords, etc.). It's all still on my phone though, under "Desktop Bookmarks".

Also my phone is currently disconnected from my Sync account because I changed the password to it and haven't logged back in yet. I'm scared that now if I log back in, I will lose everything because it will Sync and take the new data from this computer, which is nothing.

Thank you for your help!

I want to have two Firefox accounts. One for Work and one for home. On my account I was using one of my home email accounts as a primary and another home email as a secondary. I added my work email address and and made it the primary and removed my home address that was the original primary for this account. Can I now start a new account with that home email or will it not be available to use since it was once a primary for the other account?

I recently newly configured a laptop and while doing so, installed an updated version of FF (v 79).

I realized that some of my old Add-ons from my backed up FF profile (last used with FF v. 68) were interfering with the new FF installation, so by toggling off sync of Add-ons using about:config (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox ), I was able to open the newly installed FF and successfully use it with my backed up profile without introducing the older synced Add-ons.

The problem: So currently, in my newly restored, working FF profile, I have Add-Ons unchecked in syncing, to ensure that the Add-Ons from my previous FF incarnation would not conflict with this new install.

However, I am concerned that at some future point I might forget why I had disabled Add-ons in sync, and that if I check it and do a sync, it might re-introduce the old Add-ons.

So what I want to do now is to delete all the old Add-ons (essentially from the Sync server) . . . if they are still there -- so that if I want to check Add-ons to be synced with my new FF installation, it won't re-introduce those incompatible older add-ons.

What is the safest way to do this?

Would it work if I did the following?

- Open FF (my current working restored profile) -- but open it in Safe Mode. - check Add-ons in sync - allow sync - if the Add-ons show up, delete them

This piece of **** novelty lost all my saved logins after syncing. I synced as usual, unaware of this Lockwise nonsense you recently added to Firefox unnecessarily, and expecting just the open tabs from my device to sync. Well I found all my logins on someone else's computer that I was using at the time to browse the net. Wtf? So I removed the logins from Lockwise (one by one, btw, because there's no option to just remove them all at once, facepalm). Later on I find I can't find them anywhere anymore, on any of my own devices. Why the **** would passwords and login information be synced by default, and what was wrong with the old password manager?! I'm now switching over to Chrome, which I hate. But not as much as this piece of ****.
