Sync and Master Password agrivation

I like FF Sync and I like using the Master Password I set up in Options. I use them on all my machines. But why does FF have to constantly ask me my Master Password (MP) every time I boot up? I'm usually drilling down into my bookmarks tree trying to locate my destination when... POP! There's that darn MP dialog box popping up and stopping everything. I have to then start all over. Happens every time.

I tried to train myself to first sign into Sync as soon as I got to the Desktop, but that seems like it should be unnecessary.

Isn't there any way that the MP can be fed to Sync automatically if I am the only one using the machine? Can I eliminate Sync from asking for the password? Any work-arounds at all?

How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

i just downloaded the new version onto my macbook pro, and have lost all my bookmarks and other settings which is very annoying. It wants me to sync with another device but I DON'T WANT to do that !! how can I avoid this and restore my settings/bookmarks etc or barring that, dump the new version and go back to the old one which worked fine which hopefully still has all my settings ?

Hello, I just joined Firefox Sync today because I got a new computer. I am in the process of moving all my info to the new machine. I set up an account on Firefox Sync for both computers and checked all the boxes. It appears that my history, bookmarks, etc all synced properly but when I go to the Firefox Lockwise page on my new computer it only has 2 saved logins, whereas my current computer has over 200 saved. I did a manual sync and refresh but no more logins have populated that page. Is there another way to transfer those logins? I really really don't want to have to manually log in again to all those websites. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I'm getting the following message:

« Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to XXX@XXX.org was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account »

I can connect to this support using the account, but not using sync on my devices.

My mail is a valid email address, and there was some temporary problem with the mail server which explains why the mail was returned.

What can I do to get back my account? The « let us know » link leads me here.

Thanks,

Hi, I'm using both Linux and Windows on my computer. I've got problem with firefox sync, on Windows I'm using program like IDM and also use it's extension on Firefox. Meanwhile, on Linux this extension is useless. If I turned it off while on Linux, when I relogin to Windows, this extension also get turned off, I understand this is due to Firefox sync nature, but its so ineffective if I've got to turn it on and off while switching between OS.

Is there any workaround for this?

TIA
