Because of a computer problem, I can no longer access the data on my previous installation of Firefox 4 on a windows computer. I've recently started using a new mac computer, and I can't seem to restore the data using Firefox sync. I'm certain that sync was enabled on the previous installation as I've had it syncing with my mobile phone. How can I fix this issue?

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 :)

I first setup my old computer a Firefox Sync key, it was my first time to receive a Sync key. 3 months and I reformatted my pc because of data loss but my Sync key is stored in my other partitioned drive and when I setup my Firefox Sync, the Sync key is not accepted. How can this be? Is my old sync key expired? Is it changed? I'm not notified in my email. Can I still get my personal info that my Sync key had?

When I set up Sync using my sync key (via the "Set Up Sync..." option in the Firefox 5 menu), everything works fine and all of my data is synced. However, when I close my browser and re-open it, the "Set Up Sync..." now reappears and the browser is no-longer synced.

Any ideas?

I have synced ff data from my laptop before system reinstallation. After installation I've imported my bookmarks from a file and I synced it again. But it was an old file and I only have my old bookmarks now. Is data from my first sync still on your servers/my account? And can I access it?

I set up Firefox Sync on my primary laptop (Windows Vista) and synced it to a second laptop (Windows 7). Both are running Firefox 5.0

First, tabs from the second laptop opened on both laptops when starting. Then, tabs from the primary laptop opened on both machines when starting Firefox.

I went back to Sync Options and unchecked Tabs on both machines, but that didn't stop the start pages from syncing.

Is there a way to prevent the start pages from syncing when using Firefox Sync?

Thank you.

I downloaded this add-on software a few times and set up, yet the problem was still there.

Please know I am a 65yr old female neophyte. I am lucky I can follow directions and try to find answers on Firefox, which I love to try to use. Please excuse these questions -- A PhD in personnel/ administration is not an indicator of how ignorant I am in FireFox and computers." Let me say what I think I did: I thought it was a very neat idea to guard the names and passwords I use all over the Internet ... So I think I followed all the directions to store my passwords in the encoded "vault" - looked at the list of sites, names, passwords, and eliminated/ deleted wrong combinations on the list. carefully copied the sync key. Then came the Problem: it asked me for an email name and the password for it. So... I gave it ma2dsjb@yahoo.com I cannot find how to add into the "Firefox sync" the other email names and passwords? Some are on Yahoo, some on AOL, one on "live" and sites such as Facebook with its passwords

"One of the biggest reasons for using "Firefox Sync", was to quit having to get a new password every time I signed in to emails or AOL or Facebook.

Then came another 3 problems from that: Can I still use the other emails ... how???? Can I still use the emails on another computer and access Facebook on another computer, and go surfing on the Internet, assuming I have the passwords written down and with me? Help
