I tried signing in on a machine with unmatched SSH keys and now I am locked out. I am wondering if there is an alternative way for me to prove my identity (picture of me with my passport for example) and resolve the log in issue.

Laptop 1 has bookmark //a.html Laptop 2 has bookmark //b.html Both devices log in with bookmark sync turned on.

Q1. Do both devices now have bookmarks a and b?

Q2. Laptop 1 deletes bookmark a. Does that delete bookmark a from device 2?

Q3. Laptop 1 adds //c.html. Does that add c to device 2?

It would be very nice if mozilla would officially explain what happens when bookmarks are synced. Just saying that they are synchronized does not explain what happens. Synchronization can be accomplished in multiple ways.

I use FFox on Windows 10 and Android, version 89.0.1 64 bit. It is not my default browser. When I open FFox sometimes I am connected to my account and can synchronise and sometimes not. I therefore have to sign into account using email + password which I have to look up. Please provide clear settings for W10 + Android so that I always sign in and can sync. Using the QR code on my monitor NEVER works . Regards T J Green

I recently got a new laptop, and am transferring everything from an older iMac. The iMac is running High Sierra 10.13.6, the new laptop is running Big Sur 11.4. Both have the latest Firefox update 89.0.1.

A couple of days ago when I got the new laptop, I set up an account to sync, so that my Firefox on the new machine would have all of the bookmarks and settings I had on the old machine. I did not have sync set up before a few days ago.

Sync has worked for my bookmarks. But it has not worked for my add-ons.

I'm running the two machines side by side. My add-ons are there on the older iMac. Syncing is ON, and add-ons are selected in the "You are currently syncing these items" box.

No matter how many times I hit "Sync Now", on the old machine and then the new machine, the add-ons don't sync. I've quit Firefox on both machines. I've restarted both machines.

Help!
