Restoring history from a second device with Sync

Hello,

IT support wiped my browser history on Laptop A. I also have Laptop B, which hasn't been used in a couple of weeks, and which is connected to Laptop A through Sync. Ideally I'd like to import the history from Laptop B to Laptop A, as this would be an almost total restore.

Laptop A losing its history is the most recent activity though, and I'm worried that as soon as I open Firefox on Laptop B, Sync will overwrite B's history with the (now blank) history from A.

So, is it possible to get B's data onto A through Sync, without A wiping B? Can I generate a backup from B through other means without Sync overwriting it?

Many thanks,

Charlotte

My Sync is set for Add-ons (which Themes is a part of), Bookmarks, Options, across (5) Windows 10 laptops and (1) Windows XP SP3 desktop. Everything syncs perfectly in all of the devices except Themes. There is one same theme for all of the devices. However, the theme in the Windows XP SP3 desktop CANNOT be changed because none of the currently available themes function in Firefox 52.9, the last version that works with Windows XP SP3. Is this preventing Themes from syncing in the Windows 10 devices? I presently change to one same theme manually in each of the Windows 10 devices, but I am looking for a workaround to make Themes sync in the Windows 10 devices.

I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

Hi all, I just purchased a new computer, and the first thing that I did was download Firefox onto it. However, I've become frustrated over the last few days, as even though I immediately signed into my Firefox account upon opening the browser, when I close it and then open it back up later on everything is signed out, including my Firefox profile. How do I make it so that every time I open my browser, it is already signed in, and I don't have to type in my username and password over and over again. Thanks in advance for your help!

Version 80.0.1 on 2 W10 updated machines. When I use Firefox on my PC at work I always find double, triple sometimes even more links on the main root and on different sub-directories. I clean and re-organize but when at home I have the same problem and the day after at work the same again. It seems like it syncronizes from some old sessions mixing them up together instead of doing it from the last session only. Even old links that I don't use anymore are appearing 2,3 4 times. Any idea?

I have at least 4 (four) different sets of bookmarks which I want and I need to hold separately. Example: Professional and private use.

Because it is not possible to manage multiple firefox profiles (aka independent sets of bookmarks) with one firefox account, I created multiple firefox accounts.

Because it is not possible to create multiple firefox accounts with one email address, I created multiple email aliases (thanks god to my email provider who supports this). For each firefox account one email alias. Even for describing this situation and finally asking my quenstion here, I created a new email alias.

( Side note: Even this firefox account with which I am writing these lines right now got not registrated successful. After creating it and entering the received verfication code 1. The browser window got stuck 2. After the login Mozilla tells me, that this account is not valid (or something like that) )

Because I have to pay for each email alias and because I don't want to polute my email-alias-namespace, I delete the email alias after successful registrations and verification. This works pretty fine for all kind of forums and communities -> Except for the firefox accounts.

Because a verification code was sent to my not anymore existing email alias, when I tried to login into my private firefox acount after some time of absence, the login was declined.

Because the login was declined, I recreated the email alias to receive a new verification code.

Because the last email with a verification code sent from Mozilla to my email alias got back to Mozilla, Mozilla does NOT send me a new verification code again, instead it is asking me, if the email address (alias) is correct: IT IS CORRECT. If I choose "send again" Mozilla AGAIN tells me, that the email (previuosly sent) got back. SO IT DOES NOT EVENT TRY TO SEND A NEW VERIFICITION CODE.

This is fucking annoying.

So here are my quenstions: - How to reactivate my firefox account which got tagged by mozilla to have a wrong email address? - When will it be possible to have multiple firefox accounts with one email address? - Or, alternatively: When will it be possible to manage multiple sets of bookmarks with one firefox account?

I have synced my android phone and Windows 10 laptop. On trying to log in to the same valid firefox synch account on my old Windows 7 laptop, I get the error message "Invalid Password".

The sync works perfectly on the other two devices with same credentials. I also tried separately logging to accounts.firefox.com and got the same error.

Came across an old thread which suggested deleting certain files from the profile folder. Didn't work. Safe mode and Firefox refresh also didn't work. Please help.
