I'm not sure what exactly has synced but I'm ultimately, trying to get my open windows with their tabs onto the new device. I'm sure there I a simple step I'm missing. Please help!

I reset my PC and reinstalled Firefox last month, but my bookmarks were never recovered after I logged in my Firefox account. A couple of months ago I installed Firefox on another PC (to which I no longer have access) and it showed all the synced bookmarks, but this time it doesn't. What should I do? Thank you

I recently moved from Opera to Firefox, and moved all of my passwords by making a CSV file then importing them to Firefox, but they’re not syncing? While on my PC it shows all of the passwords, my phone only shows my password for my Firefox account, the only password I made rather than importing. Any help will be very much appreciated.

I forgot my password to Firefox Sync account. But at the moment I can still access the account from one of my devices which i have previously logged in, and needs a way to backup all the sync data so I can restore them back to Firefox Sync after resetting the password. As I read, resetting the password clears all sync data as Firefox cannot decrypt the data without the old password. Is there a way to backup my current Sync data, and restore them after the reset? If so, can you please guide me on how to do it?

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

Hi All

I have my account set up on the original laptop. I have just opened my new laptop and logged in to firefox. I have set to sync including passwords and logins. I can see both open Firefox accounts on my laptops simultaneously. They are the same account and they have been synced repeatedly. However my passwords and logins are not appearing on the new laptop. They only show on the old laptop. Why?

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening to whoever is reading this,

Yesterday in the early hours of the morning my Firefox updated, and after it restarted following this I lost my session - I have tried to restore my previous session, and sync to the previous session, but both have been unsuccessful. How can I restore that session?

Synchronise options show two sessions - image attached - the new session (red) following the reboot, and the old session (green) that I want to go back to, how can I do this?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Thank you very much.

Best regards, Sarah

How can I sync my Firefox browser? It always asks for my Primary Password. I tried resetting my password, deleting/recreating my account, and I'm always asked for the "Primary Password". I can log into Firefox Accounts with my e-mail and known password, but I can't reach the sync option because I'm always asked for the "Primary Password", which seems to be out of sync with my Firefox Account.

I have discovered a bug in the Sync. While starting a fresh copy of the browser and signing into the Sync, the content that was earlier saved to the Sync server is not fully restored.

As example, I use the "Preferences".

Some settings, like for example: "network prefernces", "search", etc., instead of beeing restored from the Sync server, are set to the default values and need to become changed manually into the prefered values.
