Every time I restart my computer I get logged out of my Firefox account. This does not happen when I close the browser only when I shutdown or restart my computer. I have tried removing add-ons and also making sure the browser remembers cookies when it closes. Is there a way so Firefox won't log me out and have to sign into sync after a computer restart?

Firefox Account Sync not working, and wiping settings whenever I shut down

Hey y'all,

First, thanks for your attention. This has been driving me nuts over the last few weeks and if I can fix it I'd be very happy.

I switched to Firefox a few months ago and immediately set up the password manager and a bunch of bookmarks. Unfortunately, the next time I shut down my computer and restarted, Firefox said this browser was a new installation and had totally reset, with nothing saved.

This happened again a second time, so I set up a Firefox Account so I could have the settings saved to a profile rather than an installation.

Every time I restart the same thing happens: Firefox has a 'new installation' and none of my settings. The first time I logged in to my Firefox account to sync it, it worked. But I've just installed Catalina, previously using Mojave, and on that restart it happened again, but the Firefox account sync isn't doing anything. Now, every time I open up the browser, even if I haven't restarted the computer, it brings me to the same 'new installation' screen. When I log in to my Firefox account as prompted, none of my previous information syncs. Nothing happens at all after I get the "This Firefox is connected" screen.

I know the sync is at least somewhat connected because I can sync tabs from my phone to my computer.

Any ideas? I can re-do all of my passwords and bookmarks, but I don't want to bother if it isn't getting saved anywhere, or if I can't stop this factory reset whenever my computer shuts off.

I'm on a Macbook running Catalina 10.15 if that matters. Thanks!

I cannot find any mention of how private the information is that sync saves on the Mozilla computers. These data would seem to be gold to a data miner.

You should publish a Privacy statement regarding off-site Sync data and under what conditions it would be released to anyone for any purpose. How soon will it be "shared" with third-party "partners" in order to enhance my "online experience"?

Your current Sync information is totally silent on this question.

Today I got a message from www.xmarks.com that it is going to stop it's bookmarks synchronization service "XMARKS" add-on firefox from 10th Jan 2011. How should I import my stored bookmarks on www.xmarks.com to "FIREFOX SYNC" add-on? I could not find any option to import it in TOOLS -> SYNC -> PREFERENCES. Neither it's mentioned on xmarks.

Or probably it gets synchronized automatically?

Whenever I try to install Firefox Sync, it tells me "You are currently using Firefox 3.0.13," won't install, and suggests that I upgrade. However, I'm using Firefox 3.6.10, so I don't know how to resolve this. (Yes I tried downloading and installing the upgrade... this is still the result.) Any ideas?

Hi, I just transferred over from xmarks at their suggestion. I have a few questions about how the sync works. I have two computers and an iphone that I'd like on my network. As far as I can understand, I set up three device names under one username. However, does this mean that when I merge my files from home with my files from work, the next time I sync my work computer it will have all my bookmarks from home as well? And will both my work and home bookmarks bog down my iphone? What about sharing bookmarks across computers? If I find a bookmark while at work that I'd like to move to the home computer, can I do that? Alternatively, are all the bookmarks kept seperate from each other, each sync registered under the device name, and the bookmarks never see each other? How would I move SOME of my bookmarks onto the iphone or another device? In otherwords, is there a way that I can control which bookmarks, passwords, etc are passed and merged on seperate computers? How would I do that? Thank you very much for taking the time to read my query. Hope to hear from you soon and learn more about how this program works!

Well, I got the impression from your original instructions that I would be able to set my own "secret phrase", but the screen pictured in the instructions page never appeared. I got instead another screen with a "Firefox Sync Key" which I was required to print or save.

Is this key the same as the secret phrase you mentioned? If so, can I change it? If not, how do I get to create a secret phrase?

That's probably a stupid one, but I cant find a way to use Firefox Sync to see the open tabs on another machine. The plugins are working properly, the 'sync tabs' opt is checked and I've already tried the icon on the message bar [left and right buttons], the menu item for the plugin on tools, the tab on preferences and search the documentation and google... any help would be apreciated.

The other day, Firefox Sync scrambled most of my bookmarks and I need to know if there is a way to restore a copy of my bookmarks from a point in the past. Thousands of bookmarks, all organized into folders, are now "loose" and unsorted. If I have to restore all of them, it would take weeks.

Has anyone else experienced this or have a solution?

My sync key used to be 12 characters, no dashes (xxxxxxxxxxxx). After uninstalling and reinstalling FF 3.6.13, Sync 1.6.1 refuses my 12 character sync key. I discovered, that sync keys for all users have been switched to 31 characters including 5 dashes (x-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx). How do I get the new sync key? I have no PCs connected to Firefox Sync anymore but Firefox Home and 360 Browser on my iPhone sync successfully. Unfortunately on the iPhone I cannot display the currently used sync key. Is there a way to convert the old sync key to the new one? I need the bookmarks saved in my Sync account. Thanks for your help!
