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?

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?

I created my Firefox account with an old email address that is no longer accessible and will never be accessible again. I added a secondary email address long ago and made it primary. My account is logged in on my phone and my old laptop, both need repair, laptop data is probably gone. I logged in on my new laptop and a tablet, but had to change the password. Now Firefox does not know my logins and passwords, history, settings and preferences, bookmarks. It seems as if I have created a new account. How can I regain access to my old data?

I am unable to sync into my firefox account. It says, "The confirmation email we sent to *email address* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data." According to other threads, one is to wait 24 hours before trying to log in again. It has been more than 24 hours, and I am still unable to access my account.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I had to update firefox to current version to pay a bill on a web site. I did it. I was recommended to sync another device during install, I did that too. I worked for a few hours on firefox just now, then it crashed. It reported data it had but now I have nothing. No history, no bookmarks, NOTHING. I logged in, my username and password worked find but it's like a fresh install, no data. Over 10 years of history, hundreds and hundreds of pages and passwords all gone. I synched to my phone as it insisted I install another device. Supposedly that was done but I have no idea how to use that or what it can do. They claimed it was a backup.

I'm at a total loss.

Recently, I had to deactivate my old email. Unfortunately, I didn't think to change the email address to my new email before deleting my old one. Now that I have a new computer (Windows 10, same as the old), I can't sync my old Firefox setup to my new setup since I have to verify my account through my old defunct email (impossible to do).

How can I change my Firefox account's email without verifying through the old email address?

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!

Dear Volunteer,

First of all, I have to thank you to build the community in your freetime. I've changed my computer. I have 2 firefox accounts, the first for private browsing, the second one for work browsing, and I use them via different Firefox profiles. The configuration of the private account (adamsterbinszky@gmail.com) was succesful. But the configuration of the work account (sterbi@orfk.police.hu) was not. I've used this accounts since 2013, and I'd reconfigured them so many times, and there wasn't any problem until now. The actually problem is the unreceived verigfication email. I've tried the actions below: - checking email working -> Perfectly works. - checking spam folder -> There is no any mail in the spam folder. - adding accounts@firefox.com to contact list -> Done. I did not get the verification emails. The administrators probably changed the security settings. I cannot log in, I cannot sync. I tried to send you this letter from my work e-mail, but I did not find any support address, just this option. How can I resolve this problem? Thans for your help.

Kind regards,

Adam Sterbinszky

I have Sync setup both on desktop and on my phone (Firefox for Android). If I go on my desktop I can't see the history of my phone, I see only the history from my desktop Firefox. On my phone I can see the history of both. I activated the sync for Bookmarks, History and Tabs on both devices. How could I solve it?

Firefox for Desktop version: 82.0.3 (64 bit) on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS Firefox for Android version: 83.1.0 on Android 6.0

Thank you for your help!

Just purchased a Windows Surface Pro and setting it up to be the same as my Windows 10 Laptop. I have synced my Laptop which I would understand to mean that my bookmarks, ID/passwords etc are copied to a master in their cloud. Signing in to Firefox on Surface Pro and turning on sync does not give me the same setup as the PC.

1st question: How does Sync know that a device should be updated to match the cloud version, or the cloud version should be updated to match the device? If two devices are made different by daily actions, and both have sync turned on, does that make duplicates on both devices?

2nd question: I was expecting to see my pinned tabs, and my bookmark folders with contents be synced as well but not sure that is included.  ?
