Can not get two desktop computers to sync after installing version 68.0.1

Posted

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.

We need to look at the sync logs.

Note: Do the following for each problem system/profile. And label each as to what system/profile.

Type about:sync-log<enter> in the address bar.

Open the last file created and Copy its contents Now Paste it into this forum.

If the file is too large;


Open a text/word program and load the file. Left-click once. Now <Control> A to highlight everything, then <Control> C to copy it.

Next, have your web browser go to; https://pastebin.com/

Paste <Control> P the content of the file in the window. Note: On the bottom, fill out the boxes as best you can.

Now press Create A New Paste. The page will reload. Copy the new web address, and post it here.

Maybe try to only select one item to Sync at the time to see if syncing this item works to see if some work and if you can find where this goes wrong.
