Can't Restore Profile After Changing Password But It Still Exists on Another Device? Any Way To Restore It?

I just switched to a new computer and I believe I changed my Firefox Sync password without realizing it deletes my entire profile (I only noticed the warning after going to change it a second time!) - which I would really like to get back. On my iPad, which I moved from, my old bookmarks still show up in their entirety when I hit "bookmarks" - and everything else seems to be there. Firefox on the iPad is asking me to sign in but I don't want to do that, in case it erases everything there. Is there any way to retrieve my profile either from the iPad, on which it still seems to exist in some form, or by another method? Thank you.

My Win 11 computer blue screened on me. So, I reinstalled the OS, with saving my data option. Now, after reinstalling Firefox, I can not get all my bookmarks. I have Firefox, with my bookmarks, installed on another computer. How do I sync to grab those bookmarks?

I have both Win7 and Win10 on separate drives. I have been migrating from 7 to 10. From all appearances Firefox on both OS's are sync'd. I have asked for my passwords to be sync'd, yet they have not migrated to Win 10. Bookmarks have so I know something is working. Any advice? Thanks Chris

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.healthpartners.com. Certificate path length constraint is invalid.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_PATH_LEN_CONSTRAINT_INVALID

This seems to be caused by Firefox. I don't have this problem with Edge, Chrome or Opera

Send tabs: allow seldom used device in the list

Hi, I am a big fan of Firefox Sync in general, and of the "send tab to other device" feature in particular. I have Firefox on all my devices (Android phone, iPad, PC, work laptop and a laptop in a cabin) and while I'm browsing, I do send tabs to other devices a lot, because it's a cool stuff to checkout, but not in the moment, or not in that context: news articles or blog posts discovered on the couch but relevant to work, some items I see in the shop but I want to check dimensions prior to buying, some cool idea to check out while at the cabin, etc. My day-to-day browsing experience relies heavily on that feature.

My issue is that one of the device (laptop in the cabin) is used only randomly, with sometimes weeks between it's turned on again. And after around 2 weeks, that entry disappears from the possible devices I can send the tab too. I do understand where it comes from, as it allows keeping a clean and meaningful list, I can live with that, no worries.

But is there a way to "keep alive" a device beyond these two weeks? At the minimum, something on the mozilla account's device list, like a "confirm still relevant" button next to the "sign out" one.

Thanks Dietmar

Syncing 2 devices both with existing firefox

Hello, i have run Firefox for years on 2 separate computers each with their own data and now I want to sync them. My problem is I don't understand to the 2 different sets of data if I sync. Do the 2 sets 'blend' somehow? Does one set take primacy over the other (if so, how do I control which one it is?) or do I lose everything from both computers and start again? I've been wanting to sync for 12 months but I am so scared of losing information that I keep avoiding doing anything. Thanks Chris
