Good morning,

Hope this finds you all well and safe with 2021 well here. I got wondering about this hence me posting this to see about why the Firefox synced tabs information which I have my other laptops connected to my account doesn't have the updated sites shown or anything relevant to not having any tabs open since I don't have Firefox open on one of my other laptops but see an open webpage under Sync for it. Hope this makes sense for you to help out so I can see how to get around this if anything. Thank you. Hope to hear from one of you. Have a good day and stay safe.

Hello dear FireFox, pls help me!

When I enter 100% correct e-mail password into sync window of firefox 84.0.2, firefox says "password is incorrect" :(( If I immediately enter the same password into another window with other FireFoxPortable, or older version, then other FireFox successfully logs into my e-mail account for synchronization ! If i back again to the window №1 with FireFox 84.0.2, the password incorrect again (pls look to screenshot)

Already i tried to use other accounts, including new, specially created, but this does not solve the problem of logging to my gmail@**** account for synchronization :((

Earlier, on older versions of FireFox , this problem did not exist, although I used the same accounts. Thx before! :)

Hi,

I love the Collections feature of Firefox for Android and it makes so much more sense then bookmarks. Why I can't sync it to Firefox for Desktop (Mac in my case)? Or why I can't use collections on Firefox for Desktop? Would be another feature which Chrome and Co. doesn't have but makes the life much more easier.

Best, gummipunkt

Hello Is there a way to sync from a device but not to it? I want to be able to see the bookmarks, tabs, history and possibly extensions on my work computer but I do not want my tabs, bookmarks or extensions from my personal devices to sync on the work computer. Is this possible? If not, is there a way, for example, if I use a separate account for work to send/merge the bookmarks and tabs to my personal account?

Suddenly my firefox crashed, it is more, it ate the ram, I have 32 in ram and I get to consume more than 25, I don't know what happened, so I reset it and deleted the entire account and when I wanted to synchronize, I already had nothing of data.

Problem solved with this support article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles


After the automatic update to Firefox version 84, all my bookmarks, customizations, and add-ons are missing.

I saw something on the upgrade notice page when Firefox first ran (after the upgrade) about syncing to the previous version of Firefox to restore my bookmarks and other custom items, but I cannot find those instructions on the Firefox support site.

How do I get back all the things now missing?

Thank you.

I have two computers "A" and "B", side by side, both logged in to Firefox accounts.

on A, settings/clients shows J's Firefox on A current device

J's Firefox on B Last seen 4 months ago

and on B J's Firefox on B current device

J's Firefox on A Last seen 4 months ago.

They are literally 6 feet apart. Both running 84.0.1 (64-bit). Ran "Sync now" on both, "Refresh status" on both.

What gives?

I have been using Firefox on a surface pro 4. I recently bought a second surface pro 4, and installed Firefox on it as well. I used the second device to browse, and this filled up my top visited sites columns with new thumbnails.

Trying to use the original device, and all of my saved thumbnails with the important websites are gone. It would seem that my first device has synced to the second device, instead of the other way around.

Is there a way to revert to my original layout, before this sync, without having to try to remember all four columns, and pin them manually?

Hi,

I have just set up a Linux desktop running Pop OS, I am not able to login to my Firefox sync for my normal account it just directs me to the create an account page. My phone and windows machine are still logged into this account using Firefox sync. I tried to create an account using the same email and password and it has now locked that email because I didn't receive the verification email to confirm it. Has anyone had this issue before?

Thanks in advance,

Oz
