I always thought Firefox Sync was kind of a backup service. Today I was disappointed to learn that Firefox Sync cannot be trusted as a backup service.

A search for “firefox sync” finds 2,929 results in Community Discussion Only.

As late as 2/2/23, Top 10 Contributor Paul says: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1404105#answer-1563509

“It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device... The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.”

I looked through all the Mozilla Help Articles I could find about Firefox Sync. Not one of them mentions that Firefox Sync should not be relied upon as a backup service.

Then I found this blog searching Google: “The Future of Sync”. https://blog.mozilla.org/services/2020/09/15/the-future-of-sync/

In the blog, JR Conlin says, among other things: “A New Hope Service: A lot of folks expected it to be a Backup service. The good news is, now it is a backup service. Sync is more reliable now.”

JR Conlin posted the above blog in Sept 2020. Is there anyone who can comment on JR Conlin’s statement or the progress of his and his team’s work?

Thank You to all volunteers.

Good morning,

I have 3 devices connected to my Firefox account: a Windows 10 desktop, a Windows 11 laptop, and an iPhone 13. I have sync enabled on all 3 devices. My desktop shows 217 logins and paswords, but my iPhone and Windows 11 laptop (ASUS Zenbook) only show 47. No matter what I do, I cannot get all the passwords to sync from my desktop, to the other two devices. I've logged out and back in, disabled and enabled syncing, manually synced, but still nothing.

Is there something else that I'm missing or not doing that I should be?

Thanks in advance.

I recently transferred to Linux operating system, and when I login to firefox, and press sync, my saved logins aren't there. I've tried to log out then log back in, restarted the app several times, but won't show anything!

Before I transferred to Linux I was using Windows, and I made sure that the sync worked before transferring, so I tested the sync on a portable version of Firefox, and I was successful in syncing my saved logins.

But now it doesn't work, and I cannot see any of my passwords or logins, there is only 1 saved login which is locally stored, which was there before I logged into my account on Firefox.

Hello, I am in a dreadful situation.

I needed to format my PC, changing OS from Windows 10 to Windows 11. I have backed up my Mozilla profile just in case, along with other things.

Long story short - my backup failed. I thought that shouldn't be that much of a problem, as there's Firefox Sync. After getting the new OS, logging in to Firefox Accounts, syncing... nothing. It synced with the current state (so brand new browser) and didn't import anything. Bookmarks or history, which are very important to me. Currently, I have no way of retrieving them.

Is there a way to get Firefox Sync to Sync with what was saved some time ago? Literally anything before February 1st will work for me. I am very dependent on my browsers, Chrome synced perfectly fine, Firefox didn't.

I cannot find any relevant information on this topic, is there any chance of getting help here?

Do containers not sync? I don't see any explicit option to include them in the sync settings. I have "add-ons" and "settings" checked. One computer has the correct containers and the rest have the default set (personal, shopping, etc.). Sync is otherwise working correctly.

In response to early replies I realized I left out some detail in my question.

- I have sync enabled in the extension settings. - This is a continuous problem (the containers from one browser have never synced with the others, over many months) so I don't think it's just a time delay issue.

Thanks for your responses.

I had a major PC crash that forced me into fresh installing windows to even be able to use my system. I thought i knew my password for firefox, but i could not for the life of me remember, it has been like 5 years. It said i would lose "some" bits of my history changing my pasword, bookmarks etc. But in reality it is literally everything. Not one bookmark, piece of history, or add on was remembered.

Is there anything you guys can do? I've lost extremely important bookmarks.
