Recover Firefox password without losing bookmarks and saved logins

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

I've woken up to discover that my passwords have all vanished. My bookmarks are available. My usernames are suggested, but my passwords have all disappeared. I checked "saved passwords", and it's totally empty. I really hope it's fixable. I've always proceeded with auto-fill. There are passwords I haven't manually typed in over three years.

Having trouble removing all synced Firefox data to start fresh

I've been trying to start a fresh installation of Firefox on my desktop PC....both to start over, and also as part of troubleshooting a bug, and I'm having trouble figuring out how to stop all my synced Firefox Sync data in Accounts from downloading and overwriting my fresh installation's default settings/bookmarks/add-ons/plug-ins/etc. What happens I go through an entire routine to first uninstall my current installation of Firefox, then delete every trace of my old profile data that I can find, then reinstall Firefox, set it up as desired, and log into Firefox Accounts to sync my new configuration. What happens instead is my old synced config downloads to my local Firefox and overwrites all my settings. I don't want to delete my Firefox Accounts account, I just want to make my new profile overwrite the synced one after I'm done setting it up.

Things I've tried: -Signing out of my Firefox account on my old installation and selecting the option to delete my old synced data. -As many different combinations of refreshing Firefox+clearing all of my browsing history data+signing out of Accounts & deleting my synced data......as I can think of, prior to uninstalling, and again after re-installing Firefox. -Logging into Firefox Accounts on my phone to confirm the deletion of my synced PC config


The last two options I can think of are to make sure *all* of my saved data in Accounts - across all of my devices and not just my PC - are deleted, and to try using the Profile Manage to create a new profile and upload that to Accounts........but I wanted to get someone else's input, as I've already burned several hours trying to figure this out.

I've had a smooth ride with firefox sync for a few years now and I have admired how quick and safe it has been. I was a long time xmarks user. However today it went off the rails. I booted a virtual machine for the first time in years and while on that vm I used firefox. That copy of firefox had never had sync enabled and the bookmarks were very old. I uncautiously turned sync on, thinking that it'd favor the current bookmarks over years old bookmarks. Nope. Now I find all of my active instances of firefox (all windows flavors) have bookmarks from 2016. Two things.

  1. 1 What's the best way to restore my current bookmarks? I have backups from last night and maybe even more recent. I know how to restore bookmarks...but I'm concerned that sync will just repeat the same error and adjust to the 2016 set.
  2. 2 How did this happen? I have gotten to trust sync so much that I just enabled on the old firefox without taking any precautions. That was probably a mistake plain and simple - sync is complex and that sort of gap in dates could be unanticipated. But still it seems odd that sync would favor an ancient set over the current set.

Firefox is a great browser and sync is part of that greatness. Thank you mozilla.

Firefox Sync not working on new phone

I got a new phone (new model as the old one - a replacement) and set up Firefox Sync on it. However, I haven't been able to get my Sync account to fully recognize this new phone.

When I go to Settings > My account and select "sync now", nothing ever happens. It always says "last synced: never". Bookmarks aren't synced. I can't change what syncs with the new phone, as they're greyed out (perhaps since it doesn't think the new phone ever synced?). When I try to go to the Synced tabs menu (next to the open tabs and private tabs), it just says "please enable tab syncing". Pressing the "Sync" button will make it say "Syncing..." but nothing changes.

I can change the name of the new phone in my account, and this is recognized by other devices synced to my account.

I had taken off my old phone from the sync account. I thought something was weird with my account. I tried adding the old phone back on and... it works fine. Bookmarks sync, tabs can be sent.

I've already tried: Clearing Firefox app cache on new phone = didn't work. Uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it on the new phone. Signing into Sync again. = didn't work. Signing out of all devices on my Sync account, then signing in to my main computer and then new phone = didn't work.

What is wrong with this new phone?

I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

Hi. I was visiting someone and while I was there, I synced my Firefox account to his computer so I could do my personal business on it. I had it set up so I didn't need to log in before using Firefox, though. I've seen instructions for how to unsync a device at a distance that advise one to change one's Firefox password, but I am not sure whether this would work in my case since I didn't have things set up on the other computer to require a Firefox password. If I changed my password, would the other computer revert to requiring a password to open Firefox?

The second part of the instructions I read advise one to also change all one's other passwords: "If you don't change the passwords for things like your bank account, it would still be possible for someone else to log into your account on your lost device." I don't understand why this would be the case. Since I have over 200 passwords, this would also be completely impractical for me. Could someone please shed some light on this matter? Thanks.

I can browse web pages fine, but I cannot gain access to login to my FireFox Account. I have had to use another browser to post this as I needed to login to my Forefox Account in order to do so.

Why am I seen these symbols?

Hello Everyone,

I am not sure what has happened but I had tons of passwords saved in my Mozilla browser. I have been using this since 2019 or 2020 and saved all of my passwords there. What happened is I was using my laptop and wasn't aware that the charger is not plugged in. While working my device turned off because of no battery. I connected the charger and restarted my device like normal. After I opened my browser(Mozilla Firefox) and ctrl+shift+t to open all the recently closed tabs, I was amazed to see that it restored many old sites like 1.5 month old websites instead of the one's which I was using. However, the recently closed one's were showing in the history. I opened the tabs from history that I needed and started using it normal. I have using Mozilla Firefox for good 2 years I never felt the need to remember any of my passwords. Everytime I have to create an account on any of the sites I just create a password once, at the time of sign up only and then click on SAVE PASSWORD so I don't have to remember it. I am guessing this is the normal practice that everyone does or may be a cast majority. I was doing my routine work, I tried to login to my account using the same way like you put in your email in the email section and then click on password section and select the user/email you want to use a password for and sign in. BUT TODAY WHEN I FOLLOWED THE SAME PROCEDURE, IT DOESN'T SHOW ME ANY SAVED PASSWORD WHICH WAS QUITE SURPRISING TO ME. I OPENED THE PASSWORD MENU FROM THE TOP RIGHT AND I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE THAT THERE WE ZERO, LITERALLY ZERO SAVED PASSWORDS. I REALLY NEED HELP WITH THIS BECAUSE THOSE WERE SO MANY PASSWORDS LIKE SERIOUSLY SO MANY.

THANK YOU, AMIR

I tried to set up Firefox on a new device, when I logged in it sent a verification email (I made sure typed it in correctly). I kept refreshing my inbox and checking spam folder on my other device but nothing came. I clicked "resend" and I got an error saying my verification email was returned, and that my account is now locked.

When I clicked on the support I logged in to this very community support forum using the same email and password I tried to log in into my account with!

Something is wrong with your verification email system and now I can't log in and sync my new device anymore :/

What can I do?
