I re-set my password and am trying to log in to FireFox Browser Sync on windows, it says it will send me an authorization code and to enter it, I received the code and entered the code exactly as received, and it says it's wrong. It's rejecting the authorization code I'm receiving from firefox by email, there's no question about it, I'm not making a mistake, entering it exactly as is, capital letters matching the way it was received in the email, even copy pasted it once, tried it 4 times and it keeps rejecting the authorization code it's emailing me...

Please help

Hello, after my PC died and got a new one plus a new mobile it sync everything but my passwords. Strange thing is all passwords are still in my android tablet firefox, which I have connect and trying to sync, but with no luck so far. There are thousands of passwords there from many years and I'm afraid if tablet fails I will lost everything. BTW it cannot get/or send passwords from chrome or I could have shift passwords to other devices through chrome. Something change regarding passwords lately? Thanks in advance.

i did check all boxes during the switch from one firefox version to eos but no bookmarks or anything were synched over. Is this repairable? Either way - keeping this version or going back to the previous one?

Hello,

Since 3-4 days, Sync no longer synchronizes any elements, from one device to another i no longer have access to my passwords saved in Lockwise or my shared tabs. I tried to disconnect all my devices then reconnect, i "forced" synchro, i installed the Lockwise Android app on my phone but but the sync runs in a vacuum so the app doesnt seem to download my data & credentials...

What can i do more to recover my data or restore sync ?

Hi, I have a little annoying problem. Whenever I delete a bookmark, it is instantly restored back to the bottom of the list. Deleting it second time usually keeps it deleted. I assume this is some kind of a fault with the sync, but I do not want to disable syncing - I just want it to stop restoring bookmarks that I specifically deleted. Is there anything that I can do about this?

I purchased a new device, but the bookmarks are not syncing like it has on prior devices. I have confirmed all setting are exactly as they were previously. No matter what I try, I can't get my bookmarks to join me on my new device. Is this a known bug?

Up until recently I was using a 11 year old laptop that was slowing dying. I was finally able to acquire a new computer and get it up and running just before an accident (as if out of a comedy movie - the roommate's cat knocked a full bowl of cereal onto the old laptop) effectively destroyed the old machine. Thankfully, Firefox Sync meant that everything I had been working on appeared when I got the new machine fully functional...until I logged on to Firefox this evening to find my Synced Tabs empty with just a "Want to see your tabs from other devices here? Connect Another Device" message.

The old device is toast...I don't know if it will even turn on again, much less function enough to sign into Firefox. Synced Tabs was also working just fine for a solid week until it just up and disappeared. Is there some way to restore these? I know it's my fault for relying/expecting Sync to always be there and not backing up the links I had open immediately, and this is a mistake I won't make again...but I'd really love to not lose everything I had open.

Thank you very much in advance for any help or suggestions.

When I try to add sync on my PC it asks for a key and even it's provided with the correct key from a different device it tells me it's incorrect. Is this a bug?

I had everything working. This PC contains the first step of the sync project I planned to use with two more PC's. After initial setup it works fint.

Then I decided to fix a problem I had with Firefox and Citrix and an old article told me to try and make a new profile - so I did. While it didn't solve my Citrix problem I did loose my Firefox Sync so I wanted to add it again.

At first is asks for a device which already has Sync setup. I don't have that so I clicked on "I don't have the device" then it says I need the Sync key and explains how I get from a device I don't have (really weird to do so). So I gave up.

At work I got my Sync key and saved the html file to my DropBox. When I came home and it asked for my Sync key I simply copy/pasted the key and it says the keys is incorrect.

Thought I love the idea of the build-in sync function, Xmarks makes this a whole lot easier. I hope and wish you continue to improve this already great software.

Thanks for the help :)

Had a problem with a work computer and it got fixed today so I was messing with it and needed to sign into Firefox and I accidentally signed into my home account. I realized it and signed into the work account and now it is all scrambled up. I don't know where anything is and not even sure if it is all there. Some of the bookmarks were the same on both computers. Guess I would have thought that when you sign into each account the bookmarks would just go back to the way they were...apparently not?

I have a new laptop. Each time I restart I have to sign back onto Firefox Sync. My old computer is automatically signed in which is way more convenient.

I saw one article that said to change the 'history' settings to 'use custom settings for history' with a few additional steps. I have tried this with no change in the programs behavior. Any thoughts?

Thank you,
