Hi, I recently setup a new computer and had to reset my firefox account password to login for sync.
everything worked fine, that was last week.
I just setup another computer and had to repeat the password reset process. I am now logged into my firefox account however it's not syncing? will there be some kind of security delay because I reset my password multiple times recently? I really need my saved logins.
any help would be appreciated, thanks

There was no need to change/reset the sync password.
Resetting the sync password, or changing its e-mail will remove all data from the servers. The username and password are used to create the encryption.
This is a security feature. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ive-lost-my-firefox-sync-account-information

- I’ve forgotten, or don't have access to, my Firefox Account email address
Note: Only the data on the servers is cleared. The profile data is not changed or removed.
Make sure both systems/profiles are logged into the sync account.
