Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

Hi, I am trying to sync my Firefox account with a new laptop. Unfortunately, I am asked to verify a code sent to my e-mail, but my e-mail password is stored in my Firefox account so I can't open it. I am unable to access my e-mail any other way at the moment. Please contact me ASAP with a way to unlock my account so I can get my passwords. My regular account e-mail is [email-removed].

Hi there,

I've been using firefox as my main browser and I've created a account and using it all the time for syncing the settings, bookmarks, logins, extensions etc.

BUT due to some unwanted (really irritating) search suggestion were being shown to me by firefox, I had to uninstall firefox from my system.

    • Throughout the process, I'd kept syncing ON always!!

But when I installed firefox again and after loggedin, I'm syncing everything but this is restoring (syncing) very old data which doesn't have my latest bookmarks, extenstions & saved logins!!

How DO I get my all data???

URGENT PLEASE!! THANK YOU

I have a FF account and I am signed in on my desktop. I just changed a whole lot of passwords. I want my Android phones to have the same passwords, but I am afraid of syncing the wrong way, if you know what I mean.

So, I want my ANDROID PHONE'S FF BROWSER to get the NEW PASSWORDS from my DESKTOP'S FF ACCOUNT'S BROWSERS.

How do I handle this? Also, I am NOT TECHIE AT ALL.

I added an image, and as you can see, I had to do some work on my desktop requiring setting up W11 several times. And it looks like FF is logged into past versions of my desktop.

Hi All

I have my account set up on the original laptop. I have just opened my new laptop and logged in to firefox. I have set to sync including passwords and logins. I can see both open Firefox accounts on my laptops simultaneously. They are the same account and they have been synced repeatedly. However my passwords and logins are not appearing on the new laptop. They only show on the old laptop. Why?

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening to whoever is reading this,

Yesterday in the early hours of the morning my Firefox updated, and after it restarted following this I lost my session - I have tried to restore my previous session, and sync to the previous session, but both have been unsuccessful. How can I restore that session?

Synchronise options show two sessions - image attached - the new session (red) following the reboot, and the old session (green) that I want to go back to, how can I do this?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Thank you very much.

Best regards, Sarah
