I recently got all new devices and traded in my previous ones and when trying to login to Firefox Sync, I can sign in successfully but then I’m required to provide the 6-digit code that is sent to my email. I am unable to login to my email because the password in stored in my Firefox Sync saved passwords.

Attempted to reset my email password (Gmail) but I need to enter the last password that I used, which I have no idea since I’ve always used Firefox Sync and all I get from Google is “we are unable to verify this account belongs to you”. So not much traction on gaining access to my email account.

In my mind, I assumed that by utilizing Firefox Sync as a form of a password manager, I wouldn’t be in this situation as long as I knew my Firefox Sync password. I have since learned otherwise. I can sign-in on accounts.firefox.com but of course making any change requires that I put in the code that was sent via email.

I attempted to download Lockwise and again prompted to enter the code sent via email.

So at this point, I’m just wondering if I’m out of luck and although I know my password to my Firefox account that I’ll be unable to regain access to it or my email because I can’t access the 6-digit code being sent to that email.

Any additional support or suggestions are appreciated but I feel like I’m unfortunately at the end of the line here on what else could be done.

Locked out of Firefox sync, formal request to delete personal data best solution?

Hi, it's been a while since I used Firefox and I don't seem to have a way of getting back into Sync with my primary e-mail address since I can't find my backup code. Who do I contact to either get my account deleted so I can start again, or get an account reset option set to my e-mail address? Ultimately none of my devices are logged in, and I cannot find my backup code.

The impression I have so far is that you have to sign in with another e-mail account (which is what I have done now), but this is not the e-mail account I want to use.

If Mozilla are storing my name and contact details for the sign in, would the best route be a formal request for deletion of personal data?

Thanks

I tell you, I have Firefox for a long time, it is my favorite browser, but a few weeks ago I forgot the password; a, I tried to change it, with the keys etc and I could not, so I decided to reset it, of course it hit me because I lost All my bookmarks in folders and in order ... well, the fact is that three days ago I think I went back to my firefox and suddenly I went back to my previous account, that is, as if I had not reset it, it was all there, but Also my problem with the password is back, I can not change it, supposedly I had already done it, but it appears the previous one to which I changed a few days ago, to which I cannot change because I do not remember, and I returned to the same thing, no I want to reset again because maybe the same thing happens, what should I do then? Can you help me change my password without losing everything again? It hadn't happened to me before and I don't know what to do, it all seemed very strange to me.

Thanks for reading and helping me.

Hi,

I have firefox in my pc and in android, both with the same account and it has been working fine until recently when I noticed that all my bookmarks, suggestions and history disappeared from my pc. I checked if I have the last version, logged out and in again and tried forced syncing and nothing changes. Any idea why can this happen all of a sudden?

I have three devices, a desk top, a laptop and an iPad. The desktop is running a very outdated version of Firefox which means it is not compatable just to update it. The forum tried to help me with this a while back, but it was deemed not to be possible, and the best way would have been to do a fresh new install, but there was noway to save log-ins/passwords bookmarks. My devices all have the Firefox sync and that is so far working well. My question is, if I dragged my PC's Firefox into the present by performing a fresh new install, would my synced items install ok....after invoking the Sync feature on the new install. Logic tells me this should be so, as it worked ok with the new iPad, but I know from experience that logic doesn't always come into play. (Windows7) Many thanks

My iMac died. I downloaded Firefox onto my replacement iMac and signed into Firefox Sync hoping all my Plug Ins and Bookmarks would propagate onto my ne iMac but they did not. I keep getting a message from Firefox to complete Firefox Sync by adding another device. I just want the set up from the Firefox set up on my iMac that died. Is there any way to recover my old Firefox info onto my new iMac?

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.
