I just got a new computer and my Firefox sync that I set up that computer had bookmarks, my theme, and how I had things laid out, I tried for over an hour trying to get Firefox to sync, but after it's still the same, I was also switching from Windows 7 to Windows 10 which made it even more nauseating

After hooking up four devices to sync through Firefox, I ended up with a mess and a lot of irritation which I have not recovered from. That was six months ago. What I failed to understand is that there is no control of the direction of sync. I presumed that all would sync from my primary account computer. Wrong and truly a disaster because I had spent hours organizing thousands of bookmarks. An old computer with an old bookmarks setup (very disorganized) added its confused mess back into my attempt on the new computer to finally get organized. I still have not sorted through most of the mess.

So how in the hell does Sync actually and exactly work? Is there any directional flow? Or does it just mash the shared stuff together. How can I delete any bookmark file Sync has at Firefox server with exact knowledge of what I am doing? Why is this stuff so obscure? I exactly want to know how to ensure that Sync has no cache of obsolete material and exactly, if possible, to direct the flow....should I use only share a tab? one at a time?

Thanks, Michael Mandeville, Arizona mwman@q.com

I am stuck between two machines and can't stay on beta updates anymore because FF won't let me sync my profiles anymore.

If I can't migrate my beta channel profile to the release channel, how can I quit beta updates until the release channel catches up to me?

FF preference selected is 'download updates but let me install them' but really there is no choice. It installs and next opening of FF it is automatically installed. I already changed about:config preference for update channel to 'release' but FF merrily kept on with beta channel updates.

I need my beta channel profile customizations--varied management of permissions and add-ons and passwords on dozens of sites, customizations to stop the blinking and autoplay and movement and noise.

But: FF won't let me keep them if I go back to release.

So: how can I force FF to stop updating while the release channel catches up?

Mac/Mojave Beta channel 80.something, need to sync with release channel 79

I have alot of open tabs on mobile phone and want to view - and then delete - each of the tabs on my desktop because it's massively slowing down my mobile. I am able to open on my desktop the synced tabs - although I can only open them either one-by-one, or the entire lot of 1,000 of them - but cannot seem to delete singular ones or a few tabs at a time when are no longer needed. Is there a way to delete a synced tab individually from a connected device that's NOT the device where the tab is currently open/ originally saved? Thanks!

Dear community,

I use Firefox on a Linux laptop and an Android phone.

For the past several months, I have been successfully using the Lockwise app on the Android phone to access passwords synced from my computer. I was not logged in to Firefox proper (the browser) until much more recently. Apparently, I have failed to notice that my passwords never synced to Firefox browser.

I have now reinstalled the OS on my laptop and all my passwords are gone there. They still appear in the Lockwise app, but none of my Firefox browser installs (which I all added to Firefox Sync much more recently than Lockwise) can access them. Essentially, it is as if they are only stored on my phone, anymore.

How can I get them back to the browser?

Kind regards, fNek

Today I switched the Firefox Sync account from old one to new one (just personal hobby, won't use the old e-mail anymore). I received this message: "The confirmation email we sent to ******@********* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data. If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account." because the new e-mail was inactive for 48hrs so. It was my bad, I registered the new e-mail to Firefox Sync not long after it was made, so I have to wait for 48hrs till it is usable (provider's policy). Err... I'm not sure if the e-mail I wrote got auto-censor or not, so I censored it myself. I can give it to you whom concern later, if necessary. But I don't get the point here. How can you protect my Firefox data if it is just a whole new account that even not login successfully first time, still waiting for e-mail verification?

I had a laptop with a broken screen and needed repair. Before sending it in, I created a firefox account and synced everything (with the intent to be able to get my bookmarks on a friend's desktop if needed while my laptop was in repair.)

I had only switched from chrome about six months ago, and had not made a firefox account until I was about to send it in for repair. I did not double check that this was working (beyond the fact that it synced successfully), nor did I connect a phone or other laptop, as I figured I would be getting mine back soon, and syncing things was just on the off chance I needed to get a bookmark in the week my laptop was away.

I was then told that the screen was not repairable, and that I would be getting the cost of the laptop as credit to buy a new one. NOT IDEAL. But I figured hey, I save all my files on an external anyways, can reinstall the programs I use, and can sync firefox and chrome to get my bookmarks and history back. None of my files/info was actually lost at this point.

So I did that. Got the new laptop, started reinstalling everything.

Downloaded firefox, logged in to my account to start the sync. It did not load a single bookmark, history, anything, although I had set it to save all of that, and made sure to sync and make sure everything was up-to-date before I sent my original laptop away.

So now I no longer have access to the original laptop, did not plan on this, and I can not manually export bookmarks to transfer them over. Synching firefox is my only hope for getting them back.

I've lost links to wedding planning, research articles, and several more things, and only now, when I started panicking about sync not restoring everything, have I been googling and finding articles warning that sync is should not be used as a backup.

Chrome, on the other hand, restored everything perfectly, but does not have any of the current bookmarks I'd needed and used in the past few months. Y'know, the most relevant ones I'd like to have.

What can I do now, and is there any even slight possibility someone behind the scenes as firefox can find my bookmarks/history saved on a server somewhere? I wasn't able to find a direct email or contact us form to fill out and ask.

Hi there,

I recently switched to windows and I used firefox sync to import all my bookmarks etc. However, I had some issues with video streaming. I took the pc back to the store and they claim it is because of the firefox syncing. Is it possible that by syncing it installed some add-ons on windows that aren't compatible with the OS?

I recently did a clean install of Window's on my computer. I have a Firefox account and am signed into sync, but I don't know how to get my add-ons and settings back. When I go to "Manage Your Extensions" I see all of them there, but I don't know how to make it so that their icons are viewable in my Toolbar where I can click and use them. In the Manage Your Extensions area I can't click on them to load the extension. For example: I have Notes by Firefox where I have stored irreplaceable information, but I am unable to access any of the information stored in notes because I am unable to "reinstall" Notes. So in short how do I get the extensions listed in the attached screenshot to show up in the Toolbar(highlighted area in the screenshot)?
