I logged into my Firefox account succefully but however I can't sync my data. When I hover mouse pointer over my account name in the main menu the hint appears saying that the last sync was performed on the 1'st of January but nevertheless I don't see that my bookmarks, settings and extensions were synchronized. When I looked into the log (available through about:sync-log) I found the following error:

1528826421812 Sync.Resource WARN GET request to https://sync-656-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/1.5/104145959/info/collections failed: [Exception... "The connection has timed out" nsresult: "0x804b000e (NS_ERROR_NET_TIMEOUT)" location: "<unknown>" data: no] No traceback available

Can anyone help me? Why can't the browser connect to the server? I can send the full log if needed.

I have my FireFox account on 3 main devices, an iMac, my iPhone and my work PC. On my work PC, the sync is very shaky. As of late, I go to log into sync, confirm via my email and then it shows that it's syncing by the rotating arrows and then it disconnects. I re-sign in, it gives me the sign on confirmed and then it shows the yellow exclamation point and it's disconnected again.

What am I doing wrong? Last week it worked for a few days and this morning my work computer must have rebooted itself over night and now it's not connecting for any amount of time. I wouldn't care normally but the password remembering is super helpful for myself.

Either does not synchronize the data, either is too slow to do it or it DOES whatever it wants...

Last time I used it, I logged from Sync in a PC. I changed stuff to another that was still connected to Sync and waited to be sychronized online. Then I logged in to Sync again from the other PC. In a way I kept a BackUp and fixed things in the way I wanted. Imageine what happened. Every bookmark changed according to the other Synced devices and bookmarks of the new device added to Sync were deleted. So, when I add a new device to Sync it has to have NO Bookmarks. But the OLD Sync DID sychronized even the bookmarks of the NEW device added.

I have an android phone running android 9 (Pie) and I had over 100 tabs on it open (mostly news articles and stuff). It is signed into my Firefox account. I realized that's a lot of tabs and the past 2 days I've been actually sorting them and closing some of them. I realized I could do this on my desktop as well. Anyways my phone froze while I had Firefox open, and I realized my tabs on there were all missing... I decided not to panic yet because I could still get to them on my desktop. Turns out when I open the "synced tabs" pane on my desktop which is logged into the same firefox account.. none of the 100+ tabs are there anymore either. How do I actually contact someone that can revert my sync status or whatever to a previous state so I can get my tabs and stuff back that I had open? Firefox crashing on my phone SHOULD NOT EVER somehow close all of those tabs on BOTH the phone and the computer. I guess the crash of firefox somehow wiped them out, and then my desktop synced with that account, realized those tabs were "closed" and cleared the list there as well.

HELP??

This issue has been around for years with no actual solution. I recently finally got around to disconnecting three of my devices (laptop, Samsung tablet and Samsung smartphone) from Firefox Sync in order to determine if the problem is sync-related. The bookmarks toolbar on my main device (another laptop) were still being randomly rearranged. I therefore disconnected this laptop from sync as well. The bookmarks toolbar has since been stable with no rearranging. This is telling me that this is a sync issue, not an issue with a corrupt places.sqlite file, an add-on/plug-in or hardware acceleration, as previously suggested by Mozilla, which was then marked as a solution. Sync has often been quite useful, but since I have my bookmarks (folders) arranged in alphabetical order on the toolbar for quick access and use them all frequently, I'd rather forego sync than deal with constant reordering of the bookmarks toolbar. I gather from what I've read that this problem also exists in the Google Chrome web browser. Even if the problem is a corrupted places.sqlite file, surely the sheer number of users experiencing the issue would suggest a bug or vulnerability with that file, irrespective of what add-ons are installed since the likelihood of all those users having the same add-on(s) installed is probably minimal. Surely it's about time Mozilla properly investigated (e.g. what add-on(s) is causing the issue, how the places.sqlite file can become corrupted, how sync is causing the problem, etc., etc. and disseminating the findings to users) and actually solved this issue instead of expecting users (the IT-savvy ones at least) to waste time doing their own futile troubleshooting. I really don't think that I should have had to disconnect from sync in order to "fix" this problem.

Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Edit: Here's a pastebin link of the error log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9086433

So I had bookmarks and extensions in my browser, but wasn't using Sync.

After getting a new laptop, I wanted to activate Sync. So I created an account, connected sync with that account, made sure that everything was checked to sync, I then synced.

After that, on my laptop, I installed Firefox, and then added my account.

I saw that none of my bookmarks were synced, same things with my extensions.

On my desktop, I went ahead and saved my bookmarks, deleted them all, and then re-imported the bookmarks. They then were able to successfully sync, on the desktop to the laptop.

But I cannot do the same thing with extensions.

Recently got a new work desktop computer and when Firefox 68.0.1 was installed, it will not sync with my home desktop computer. On both computers, in the "Devices and Apps", both do show up as connected, but the work computer still will not sync. When I click to "connect another device", it only tried to install Firefox on my phone - no other option. I have spent 15 hours doing everything I can find on line to fix, but nothing works. I even uninstalled Firefox and ALL related items on my work computer and tried to install a couple of older versions, thinking maybe I could get it to sync and then do an update; however when ever I try to install any older version, it only installs 68.0.1. I am a CEO/software engineer I know my way around computers very well, but still can not solve this problem. I may be forced to switch browsers.

I have several system that all use Firefox and are configured to use sync. All of them, but this one sync fine. The one with the issue is on a RHEL 7.5 host and is running FireFox 52.8.0.

Mozilla Firefox Sync is blocked in whole Russia, when Russian authorities (Roskomnadzor) try to block Telegram, so it blocks those subnets: http://isitblockedinrussia.com/?host=accounts.firefox.com 35.160.0.0/13 54.144.0.0/12

Additional info here: https://github.com/sxiii/russian-blackout

So all Russian users at now can't use Firefox Sync (accounts.firefox.com) and other Mozilla cloud services.

Can Mozilla provide mirror or proxy for accounts.firefox.com website and other services in new IP subnet, that not blocked in Russia?

For Russian users: Роскомнадзор (РКН) заблокировал в России доступ к синхронизации Mozilla Firefox поэтому сайты accounts.firefox.com, firefoxusercontent.com, sync.services.mozilla.com не открываются у многих русских провайдеров (Ростелеком, Мегамакс, Virgin Connect и т.п.)

I have many, many bookmark - all the the toolbar folder. Most of them sync, but a few folders won't for some reason. "Sync now" seems to have no effect.

I used to use Xmarks, and Xmarks had a lot more control over syncing. You could force upload (overwrite server) and force download (overwrite local), for one thing - that could often be used to fix sync issues. You could also view your server bookmark list online (via web).

How can I troubleshoot this? Or how can I force a sync?
