I'm locked out of Two-Step Authentication, and should be getting an email as an alternative. I go to https://accounts.firefox.com. Here I sign in and it says:

"Confirm your account

Check your email for the verification link sent to (email)"

Nothing is in my inbox



I NEVER get the email. I've tried and tried. I have account@firefox.com added as a contact. I dug through my spam, trash, junk, inbox.. everything. I've tried to resend the email over and over. I've tried waiting days in between sending. I've tried doing this on my phone also. I have nothing from: account@firefox.com

Something about Microsoft and Mozilla isn't playing along well. Mozilla displays my email address and it is the correct email. I have previous emails from Mozilla there, nothing recent.

There shouldn't be anything stopping me from getting Mozilla's emails. I checked other email accounts just in case but no luck. I'm searching all over for my emails from account@firefox.com and nothing. Can someone help me because I can't log in otherwise.

On https://accounts.firefox.com/settings/clients?context=fx_desktop_v3&entrypoint=syncedtabs-menupanel I see a very long list of devices connected to my Firefox account. There's 97 of them.

How can I do disconnect from many devices at one time? Disconnecting one by one takes a long time.

Hello,

I am running Firefox on my Windows 10 desktop, where I have many bookmarks. I am now also using Firefox on a laptop running Linux (Kubuntu) and would like to sync it with the desktop, so that all my bookmarks are available on the Linux laptop. I have set up Sync settings, and clicked on Sync Now; then when I hover mouse on the Sync Now button it says "Last sync: 5 seconds ago". But nothing changes on the laptop -- no added bookmarks. I must be missing something, can you help? Many thanks.

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?
