Hi. I have been using this account for years to save my tabs and bookmarks. I have installed a fresh windows today and installed Firefox. I have signed into it and sync my data. But instead of restoring my data back its showing me as a new user with no data. I have years of bookmarks in my account. Please help me restore my data. Thanks.

I have two desktop computers and both Firefox accounts are in my name. I have had this site up for years. Now when I click on one specific web site it won't come up unless I got to Firefox's web browser and click on the three bars, and under my name click on sync now. Then the site comes up. The problem is I have to do this each time, on each computer. I have tried all kinds of troubleshooting to no avail. Help.

Old laptop is nearly trash, need to transfer profile to new one.

But, it is not clear if Sync actually imports the old profile onto the new computer, creating a profile file.

Since I won't be using the old laptop, I don't need "syncing" between devices, I just need the old profile on the new computer. Is sync the best way to do this? thanks

I installed a new Windows on SSD drive, downloaded Firefox and signed into my account. I tried to sync my account and its been a month now and even after deleting, refreshing and reinstalling the Firefox, the sync has not worked. I have tons of data on my Firefox account so I will be enormously grateful if someone can help.

I have tried to press sync multiple times in settings panel of the Firefox and also checked about:config/sync logs.

I have 3 desktops and 2 laptops with Firefox sync turned on. Occasionally the bookmarks on all devices are synced with an older version of bookmarks. I'm guessing it's from one of the laptops that hasn't been turned on in a few weeks and now is on. Is there not a way to prevent an old set of bookmarks from replacing a known 'good' set of bookmarks? Thankfully I have my bookmarks backup turned on and can restore them but would like to know if there is a solution to keeping bookmarks current and stable on all devices, even those devices that aren't regularly used.

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!

I still use the Quantum 96 portable along with Firefox ESR 52.9 for certain sites due to the superior customization and functionality of the latter via extensions that do not work on Quantum. However, I would like to sync the ESR passwords with Quantum, but I cannot login into Sync on ESR since "sign in" results in "Blocked by Content Security Policy."

i had like 4 or 5 startup pages. i reinstalled firefox and synced twice so it could reclaim them from my home computer but nothing happened. i tried to redo it and the option is not there. not sure if this was an update but if so i hate it. i added 3 of my startup pages to the home button. so maybe i can get them from pressing that. but i prefer to have them on startup and just have one page as my home page.

Recently booted off a new drive, when I originally signed in I had made a different firefox account since I was having verification issues. When I had that settled, I logged back into my old account which merged the two. It kept all of my old passwords and bookmarks I've made over the years, but it didn't keep my history. I've carefully sculpted my history for ages and I would really like to reaquire it somehow, let me know what's possible! Thanks.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

I sign into Firefox because I always believed it did something, but when I update the browser, I lose all my tabs. When restore previous session doesn't work, isn't that the point of signing into the browser so it remembers and you can push the whole Firefox session to another computer? Using this Firefox session on my MacBookPro and want it on my iMac and would like to know how to do that. Would like to know how to lock down the session too. What is going on right now, I don't understand where the session went. I'm logged in. What's the point of logging in? This is getting circular.
