This is the most horribly designed POS I've had the pleasure of using.

I want to setup sync on my mom's firefox. I have an account already, so I click that button. Now It wants me to pair a device. I have no access to the other computer that firefox sync was presumably setup on. Ok fine I click "I don't have the device with me."

Now they want me to sign in and provide a recovery key. WTF Is a recovery key and when did I ever get one? Fine, I generate one. I save it. Now I click "Sign in". Nope, still not working. It says my key is wrong. Umm. The key you just GAVE ME is wrong. Fine. I try again, and again. The next button is not working.

All I want to do is sync bookmarks with my mom's ipad. On the ipad app I'm using, it tells me to click "Add a device" on my browser. Umm, there is no such button. Both apps are giving me PAIRING keys; neither app is letting me actually enter a pairing key for the other.

This is horrible; absolutely horrible. This is why I use chrome. Mozilla you should be ashamed of this product.

"I have an account" button not working for sync

I applied sync to a different computer, and am now trying to apply it to a new one. However, when given the options to either create a new account or use an existing one, well... you saw the title. It is registering the mouseclick, there is simply nothing happening. And attempting to (somehow) fix by going through the "create new account" button does nothing, as it recognizes my email address due to my existing account.

Please help.

I have been using Firefox sync for a few months. Last night I had to format and re-install Firefox. When I try to add a new device the key it asks for is noting like the key I saved before formatting. It's 9 digits but what Firefox save as 'Firefox Sync Key.html' is a 31 digit key (counting the 5 dashes). I also have my name & password saved. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance, Chris

A few weeks ago all my Firefox browsers everywhere failed to sync. I thought this was a temporary problem with the servers, but still nothing is working. Was there some meltdown of the sync service or something. I cannot find any relevant information anywhere on what is going on.

I cannot figure out how to change the names of folders and reorganize my bookmarks. The new method of just clicking on the star and getting all bookmarks placed into an unsorted folder drives me crazy! When you click on the star the second time, you can designate where the bookmark goes, but if you create a new folder for it, you do not get enough time to type in the folder name, so now I have a bunch of "New Folders." This is much more difficult than the previous version of Firefox.

I wanted to start using Firefox Sync but when I click the button it tells me cookies are disabled. Actually they are not, but I have the option set to "ask me every time". Why does Firefox not first let me decide before concluding that cookies have been disabled. This question should come AFTER it attempts to set a cookie, not before because now I do not get anywhere. Related issue, why is it impossible to search (in a simple fashion and inside Options > Privacy > Exceptions) to look for specific cookies? I was given a way to look for specific cookies once but already forgot because looking for them was so convoluted.

The very first time I loaded firefox on my laptop (which i bought only a couple months ago) the syncing worked just fine.

After i dont know how much time i started getting errors that the syncing was failing. I tried to reconfigure the syncing properties but started getting the error server incorrectly configured. I scoured the net looking for answers following all the troubleshooting that I could find.

One thing I notice is that when i choose I have an account it is supposed to load a key that i can use on my already synced devices but that never actually populates and it immediately kicks me to the user name password and sync key screen. This issue remained throughout the duration of all the troubleshooting below. Additionally I cant even create a new sync account on that pc as it fails everytime.

I have done the following in a effort to resolve this issue.

I created a new sync account using one of my other pcs I added a pc that was never on the sync account to it to verify it does it fact sync i uninstalled firefox 4 separate times deleting all the folders and even as far as the registry keys i tried using a lan connection vs wifi i updated windows

My computer; I have a lenovo ideapad with windows 7 and 8 gigs of ram with a amd processor

Hi, I have two computers, one at home and one at work. I am using Firefox in both but the bookmarks are different in each computer. I want to keep it that way, so, my question is, can I have two sync accounts in just one computer? What I actually want to do to my work's computer is to keep my existing bookmarks and also have access to my bookmarks from home, but at the same time, I don't want them combined. Is this possible? Many thanks
