I have 2 Firefox accounts and I want to import or copy my passwords for the account that still has them to the one that has lost them. I synced one account in Firefox BETA that has my passwords. My other account I used to sign in on Firefox and all logins and passwords are gone. How can I do this and not loose my passwords I have in the BETA version?

I've been locked out of Sync. Found recovery codes, but they don't work. Is there any way to gain access?

Hello,

Yesterday I got signed out of my Firefox Sync and when I tried logging in, I realized I don't have Firefox in my authenticator app any longer. I have found Firefox recovery codes, which were issued in 2019 when I enabled 2FA, however when I try using them I get "Recovery code not found."

Can these recovery codes be used to prove my account ownership, even if I somehow generated new codes after 2019 but didn't save them (which I doubt, but it's not impossible) ?

I am not logged in on any other device so I cannot disable the 2FA that way. Is there any hope?

I'm being blocked from login to my account & do not want to reset my passwd since I lose all my information. I may be using a wrong passwd & not sure about the passwd; I'm the real account holder & owner of the email. My name is Kirk Rad & email is: kkrad1@gmail..com; I'm a 20+ user of Firefox & this is the first time I'm asking for support from Firefox.

I have a spare computer I don't use frequently, but which has a synced Firefox installation on it.

I am concerned that as I add and remove bookmarks, it will get further behind and, when it is reconnected, will cause deleted bookmarks to reappear or new bookmarks to disappear. Alternately I'm concerned that the change queue might exceed some size and cause sync to generally fail across my devices. My tablet got "stuck in the past" once and couldn't send or receive new bookmarks despite Sync seemingly working and connected, so I'm worried that perhaps that's what happened already.

On the other hand, if I were to remove that device from Sync, what happens if I were to add it back to Sync?

...If I deleted its bookmarks during or after disconnecting it? I feel like this might cause the bookmarks on my other devices to get deleted too.

...If I don't delete its bookmarks? I feel like this might cause any bookmarks I deleted in the interim to reappear.

Also, is there a maximum size to Sync? I have several thousand bookmarks.

I am trying to access the GIS function at https://www.mitchellcounty.org/departments/mapping-land-records/

I can access every other function on the site but the GIS. I have successfully used my current setup in the past with no problems. I have a desktop computer with Windows 10 and Firefox [both updated]. I have a subscription to PC Matic monitoring my set up and all software is certified as up to date; same with BelArc monitoring after each Windows update. My ISP is a local high speed cable company and I have had no problems with them

I contacted someone in my county with the same set up as I and he is having no problem with accessing the GIS.

Although I am not a techie I am an experienced online searcher [genealogy] and access all varieties of sites and haven't a problem with access on any. Any help is greatly appreciated; I need to access the GIS to provide some info to our POA.

The county person in charge of the GIS said I should change my browser; I have used Firefox exclusively forever; I hate to download software only to discover that the problem still is there.

The Send Tab/Link to Device feature only works in one direction, from iOS to MacOS. iOS to iOS never receives, although the popup says it sent. I'm using Firefox 98 on MacOS and iOS. I have a Windows 10 PC which can't receive or send tabs/links as well but I'll limit it to the Apple devices for the moment.

Sync and notifications are enabled on Laptop, iPhone, and iPad. I've de-synced and re-synced each device separately and together. I've attempted to send between each device separately and all together.

Neither iOS device can receive tabs/links from one another, nor send to each other. Laptop can receive tabs/links from both iPhone and iPad, but not send to either.

Each time I re-sync an iOS device I get a notification on the Laptop saying that "this computer is now connected with Firefox iOS". But still nothing works.

So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox because it keeps freezing and crashing after a Windows update. My thought process was that it was alright for me to do it since I can always log in and have my bookmarks and other stuff synched. But now I don't see any option that lets me recover all my data. Did I messed up and threw away my years worth of data or can I still recover them?

I've already looked through the FAQ and various solutions online and have not been able to find a solution that works. My issue is that while Firefox sync is signed in (and working) on 2 computers, as well as my iPhone and iPad, I have lost the password to the account and am not able to recover it from any of these devices. It seems the password saved in my "Passwords" is incorrect, and that seems to be the only place it was saved. I didn't write the password down anywhere, setup a recovery key, secondary email or two setup authentication.

I DO have access to the primary email account, but don't see any way to use that to recover the password either. As I am already signed in to sync, I AM able to add new devices using the QR code, but that doesn't seem to work for new computers (like the laptop I just bought). I have already extracted the saved passwords and bookmarks, and transferred them to a new account (the account I am signed in with right now).

However, I would rather use my original account instead of having two, nearly identical ones. I would also rather not fully reset my account as there might be something else I forgot to record that is buried in there somewhere. Is there some way to recover or extract my Firefox account password from one of the devices I am signed into? or is totally resetting the account the only option available?

Thanks

I have many computers, all with the same operating system, all with the DEFAULT Firefox install. Only on one computer do I get the "firefox content security policy" error and only when trying to log in via the "sync" tab in Firefox Options to synchronize that computer with the others.

I am a retired computer technical consultant. I'm no pedestrian user. I've been researching this problem for about a year. I've gotten nowhere. My research has come up with no answer for this problem, though there are answers for firefox content security policy that address other problems.

I am a hardware and applications software guru. I have no experience with javascript, and I suspect this IS a jafascript issue.

Can you help me?

Thank you, Graham Fisher
