I have tried to register TWO secondary emails, only to find that they are both in use. The trouble is THEY ARE BOTH MINE??? They are 1) - [email]@sky.com, and 2)- [emaill]@outlook.com. I have succumbed to using a "primary email address", but I still CANNOT get what I want. IT IS JUST NOT ON. E.G. "A secondary email is an additional address for receiving security notices and confirming new devices. Account already exists". MY ONLY REPLY IS "they would do because they are already mine". so, PLEASE GET IT SORTED OUT. Thankyou. I am getting really fedup with mozilla. It is a good browser, it's just the people that make the rules that do my head in.

Parrot OS 4.10, Firefox 77.0

Can't log into Firefox Sync all of a sudden on this computer only. Keep getting error saying that I have to enable cookies and local storage which I cannot figure out how to do. Cookies are not blocked and there is no setting in preferences for local storage.... Remember History is enabled.

Re-install of Firefox did not help. Anyone run into this before?

I am unable to login to firefox accounts .

I have the correct Email and Password, but it keeps asking me for the conformation code sent to the email for login, but i dont have access to the Email as the password is saved in sync server.

I mean the Lockwise Sync server. No i don't have any device currently logged in to Sync. I recently Formatted my PC, So all files for password manager were lost(I synced the logins to the server before formatting my pc hoping that the Login id and Password for the Accounts would be enough to retrieve them ) and am trying to retrieve the logins.

No luck with the login links i can login but cannot change anything in the settings, it says :

" NOTE: Before you can view or make changes to this section, you will need to verify your email address. "

So any way i try it is asking for the conformation code sent to my Email address Whose password is stuck in my sync server.

So its like


can't access the sync server -------because------- can't access my email for code------because--------can't access my firefox lockwise -------because-------can't access sync server

Need Help ASAP Please.

Every time I start Firefox (on Windows 10) a second tab opens which says "Connect another device". When I open the tab there are some links to install Firefox on smartphones, etc.

However, I already have Firefox linked and syncing on my Android smartphone, and 3 other computers. For some reason FF is not seeing that I have those devices linked on my account.

I have tried disconnecting from all devices in the "Account Management" page and then reconnecting. But this has no effect. Even when I am signed out on all devices, the tab asking me to connect another device continues to appear every time I start Firefox.

I have also tried refreshing Firefox to no avail. But I have noticed that if I start the browser in "safe" mode, the errant tab does not always open.

Is there a way to turn off this tab?

Thank you.

Sync and Master Password agrivation

I like FF Sync and I like using the Master Password I set up in Options. I use them on all my machines. But why does FF have to constantly ask me my Master Password (MP) every time I boot up? I'm usually drilling down into my bookmarks tree trying to locate my destination when... POP! There's that darn MP dialog box popping up and stopping everything. I have to then start all over. Happens every time.

I tried to train myself to first sign into Sync as soon as I got to the Desktop, but that seems like it should be unnecessary.

Isn't there any way that the MP can be fed to Sync automatically if I am the only one using the machine? Can I eliminate Sync from asking for the password? Any work-arounds at all?

I just received my new MacBook Air and am trying to use the synch to synch the above-referenced items from my old MacBook Pro. I am NOT synching to a phone. Each time I choose to not continue w/a QR code or SMS message, I'm taken to a screen about FF Monitor and am never able to enter "another device", which is where I began, "Connect another device" - any assistance or work around will be gladly appreciated. Thank you in advance, DD

Hi firefox community,

I've been using firefox forever and so all my logins and passwords have been saved in the browser. For the past two days I noticed that firefox couldn't 'connect to my account', which has never happened before - I was logged in ever since my firefox account was created. My current logins have been active, but when I tried to log into a website with a previously saved login and password - there was nothing. I then logged back into my firefox account, but all my logins and passwords are still gone. I tried manual sync, still nothing.

I am not sure if it happened after a specific update - I didn't notice when exactly I was 'logged out'.

Over the past couple of days I have been using my moms pc while I have been at her house. So I logged into her firefox with my account. Now my logins passwords and bookmarks have replaced hers when she logs into her account on any device even 1 that has never had an account on it at all let alone my account. I have rebooted the device tried logging out of all devices and then back in with no luck. I have also gone to about:profile on both her pc and her laptop and I was still not able to find her information. However she can login but for what ever reason has all of my information.
