I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Unable to sync firefox bookmarks and saved logins from my previous mac device

Hi Everyone - I was using firefox on my previous macbook pro and I shifted to a new macbook pro. On my older device I had logged in to the firefox and I was expecting my bookmark and saved login data to be backed up. Since I had to stop using that device, I logged out of my firefox account, and deleted everything on that device. I do not have any access to the older device.

Recently I started using the new device and logged into firefox using the same login on the new device. I cannot see any of my bookmarks and saved logins from my previous device getting synced to the new device.

How can this be resolved?

I want to sync my desktop and mobile login lists. I have Firefox 95.2.0 (2012-12-16) on my phone. And I have 95.0.2 on my desktop. Everything on mobile marked to synchronize. I've even manually clicked "sync"... Phone says everything was uploaded. But nothing is in the list on the desktop. When I tries to add a "new device" in preferences on desktop, I expect it to give me QR code. But it gives me instantly "Synchronization failed" instead. I'm tired to open list on phone and then type everything in on desktop. How can I fix the issue?

Firefox Sync - deleting Firefox from old

Hi, I have an old computer which I have Firefox on with tons of stuff...after getting a new laptop and syncing the two I want to now delete Firefox from the old laptop and use it for other things and still have all the old stuff on the new laptop. I thought the server keeps everything and if I sign out the old laptop that whatever was saved in to the new laptop stays. However, on the new laptop after signing off the old one from sync I don't see the tabs anymore. It makes sense because there is nothing to sync but how do I do what I want then? Many thanks for your assistance. Do I have to "send" 1000 tabs from old to new? Isn't the server maintaining the tabs/history even after I sign off the old laptop from sync?

Many thanks in advance for your assitance.

Firefox bookmarks sync issue between laptop and desktop

I have two desktops that we use on a daily basis, both have Firefox sync turned on to sync bookmarks, addresses, add-ons and settings. I also have a laptop that I use sporadically, maybe once every two-three weeks, or longer. It also has the same sync settings. Here is the issue I'm having with sync. When either desktop has new bookmarks added/removed they always sync perfectly to each other (desktops). But, if I turn my laptop on after a couple of weeks of being off, then it always syncs the 'old' bookmarks (up) and then the desktops get synced (down) with old bookmarks. How can I prevent this from happening and does anyone know why, in this scenario, it is happening? I've checked various places in settings and cannot find anything obvious to fix this. All devices, laptops & desktops, are very regularly updated with the most current firefox version, except on occasion if the laptop has been off for a couple of weeks or more, but once it's turned on, it updates.

I'm having a problem that appears to be linked to syncing. I can clear it with "Refresh Firefox...", but then it will come back in about 2-3 days. It will manifest itself in a few ways:

  • Facebook feed stops or is blank after about 2 or 3 entries.
  • Pandora won't start, it freezes on the initial opening page.
  • Facebook Marketplace won't display large pictures, they are blurred out.
  • If I try to log into my Firefox account, it tells me that cookies and local storage are disabled. When this happens if I delete all cookies or add exceptions, the issue remains the same and I can't login to my account.
  • Some Yahoo news feeds won't display any pictures.

I've investigated it and reviewed many of the messages about pictures being blurred or not showing, but not finding anything about the problem continually repeating. I have used "Refresh Firefox" about 10 times now, and the issue still comes back.

When it does, other things I've tried are:

  • Added in cookie exceptions for each website above.
  • Turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection for each website above.
  • Cleared all cookies manually.
  • In my Firefox account, I have deleted and re-added all my devices. Would it be helpful to completely delete my account? The issues only occur with one device, my PC desktop machine.

Any assistance is graciously requested, but this is becoming awfully perturbing. I'd love to give you screenshots or logs when this happens, but I can't even log into the forum, but let me know what I need to capture for next time! Thanks!

Fraud Connected Services Two-step authentication

RE: FRAUD - pending investigations - FTC 130602883 , IC3 , Seattle FBI and Olympia Police with ID theft / Fraud alerts RE: PROPERTY THEFT - Thurston County Sheriff's Office Report Number 21-200531

Today, 11/14/2021 I logged into my Mozilla Firefox account normally ( it's been a long time since I used SYNC due to HACKERS found out in 2019 + ) - I needed to write down / log all connected services plus devices / IP addresses and decided to add Two-step authentication as recommended for EXTRA security after changing my password.

The moment after I added + activated Two-step authentication via GOOGLE authentication 11/14/2021 5:34 AM -- my account re-synced itself and DELETED my CONNECTED SERVICES LIST:

There should have been / WAS ABOUT 5 DEVICES or more in the past 6 years when I logged in. THEY COMPLETELY VANISHED - they are also under investigation. [I also reported fraud / ID theft to FTC and had to freeze my credit.] One of these connected devices being a laptop / PC named " HEV " [stolen from me and reported to Thurston County Sheriff's office] and another newer one with my initials " pt " - with possible older mobile device most connections from over 2-5 years ago -- with the current computer I am on (that stayed on the list). After that moment - Mozilla Firefox and Google Services gave me errors -- unable to upload images // buffering and page loading (up until estimated 6:20 AM) -- no idea why and there are no service alerts / outages with COMCAST XFINITY my ISP.

The list of devices / logins is EMPTIED -- what else got erased or re-synced? I DIDN'T AUTHORIZE A DELETION!

Sincerely, Patrick Turner

I would prefer to be using Firefox rather than Google Chrome, but, my devices when all being logged in with the same account will not all sync as they should be. They will also be synced, but then they would loose their connection with the other ones. The sync should be that when I would simply log into the browser that it would automatically sync using the login information the same easy way it is done in Chrome. I have kept using Chrome, because of the fact that the sync is able to work across all devices simply by logging in for the sync to work & it will work properly to where all of the browsers that would be logged in would be synced, no issues whatsoever. How can I actually login to the sync on everything with there not being any issues of any kind across all devices?

I'm running version v92.0 (64) on ubuntu 21.04. Firefox would crash upon opening when signed in. It would stay active enough for me to disable the extensions & themes. After doing that it still crashed. I tried going into Troubleshooting mode and it would still crash. I went into Troubleshooting mode and did a refresh. It was still crashing. Finally I signed out of my mozilla sync account and the browser has stayed active long enough for me to type this report.

I've submitted all crash reports in about:crashes, and I'm not really sure what to do next.

Perhaps a local version of the Mozilla Sync profile has been corrupted? if so, is there a way to remove it and pull down the "sync"ed version from Mozilla's servers? What if the version on Mozilla's server's has been corrupted? should I back up the local profile (wherever it is) before removing?

I hope I've given enough information. Please let me know if you need further, more specific information.

I've had a smooth ride with firefox sync for a few years now and I have admired how quick and safe it has been. I was a long time xmarks user. However today it went off the rails. I booted a virtual machine for the first time in years and while on that vm I used firefox. That copy of firefox had never had sync enabled and the bookmarks were very old. I uncautiously turned sync on, thinking that it'd favor the current bookmarks over years old bookmarks. Nope. Now I find all of my active instances of firefox (all windows flavors) have bookmarks from 2016. Two things.

  1. 1 What's the best way to restore my current bookmarks? I have backups from last night and maybe even more recent. I know how to restore bookmarks...but I'm concerned that sync will just repeat the same error and adjust to the 2016 set.
  2. 2 How did this happen? I have gotten to trust sync so much that I just enabled on the old firefox without taking any precautions. That was probably a mistake plain and simple - sync is complex and that sort of gap in dates could be unanticipated. But still it seems odd that sync would favor an ancient set over the current set.

Firefox is a great browser and sync is part of that greatness. Thank you mozilla.
