Hi guys, Yesterday when I found that Firefox was updated and reinstall a new version by itself and the problem is that it deleted all old data (passwords, cookies, preferences...) and I did not find the folder "old firefox data" on my desktop. Is there a way to get back all those data please?

Many Thanks

Seperate accounts for work / private email issue

Hi team! I´ve been using my private account also as an office account for my work laptop for over 1.5 years now. Now I wanted to split these things and create a second account via following routine:

primary account was mp.*§$%@gmail.com I added my office email as secondary email: mwo*"§$@company.com I changed secondary to primary email and deleted the mp.*§$%@gmail.com from the account

Now i wanted to create a new account with mp.*§$%@gmail.com for my private things but I only get the login screen to type in my password, so there is no chance to create a new one with my private email.

Could you please give me any hints on this?

Thanks in advance!

PS: yesy the private email with smth like "+firefox" would work, but I want to keep things clean and memorable.

Hello.

I have been using firefox for a quite while now, I have LOTS of critical data linked to my firefox account (all the passwords, important bookmarks for work, etc)

I completely formatted and reinstalled windows on my pc because it had software issues that made it impossible for me to use my pc, after that I installed firefox , but forgot password for my firefox account, so I reset it with my mail, but now I can not sync to my very important older data that I desperately need.

Is there any way I can recover my data? Please, it is very important for me.

you can check that all the activities happened from same IP address, and that I searched for "windows 7 iso file" using duckduckgo right before I requested password reset


thank you in advance.

I had the old firefox (blue background) on my Mac before and have since upgraded to the one (purple background). Now everytime I open firefox, or open a new window in firefox, I have to sign in to my firefox account. On the previous version (blue one) it just kept me signed in. How can I get it to do this again?

I am logged in to Firefox on my iMac. I added the 'master password' and wrote that down as my Firefox password, and deleted the previous password. It is only 4 characters.

I now want to sync to my Macbook Air, but it does NOT accept that password, complaining that it is only 4 characters.

How can I sync to my Macbook Air?

Thanks!

How to use different themes on different computers but still sync all FF data?

Hello, Is there a way to use a different theme on one machine (light) and use the dark theme on a different computer but still be able to sync the data?

I have tried this from a previous question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818

Set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to False, but this does not work.

Did it on both macOS machines, closed and restarted the browser, and changing the theme on one browser ends up changing the theme on the other machine.

Is there any way to have to separate themes on two different machines?

Thank you!

I have a laptop that I used from 2012 to 2015, and sometimes I start it up in order to check my Firefox history and find some URL that I visited once. Today when I tried that, I couldn't get the history. Ctrl+Shift+H didn't work, and when I hit the History menu, the option "Show All History" was gray. What should I do?

I opened the profile folder and saw that there's a big file called places.sqlite, which I think is the history file.

I did set up Sync once, though it didn't seem to do anything -- the history was still what it was when i stopped using that laptop. But I notice today that if I start to type in the address bar a URL that I have used recently on my present laptop, then it suggests the whole URL. In other words, it knows what I've been doing recently on my present laptop.

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 forgot my password, went straight to recover it, did not read the message and all my data is now erased. I know I should've read it but god damn if the action deletes ALL of your information do a double confirm with some red popup...

So is there a way to recover it somehow? Download and try my old passwords on it or something else?

Hi,

I'm using Firefox over various devices and systems.

For instance: - Firefox binary downloaded from Mozilla website and executed over Debian Testing - Firefox from Arch Linux official repositories in Arch systems

My doubt is: could this cause any problem with the Sync function? Or Sync has the flexibility to allow syncing between a wide specter of Firefox installations

For instance: Could I add Fennec from F-Droid to my LineageOS smartphone or Firefox-ESR from Debian repositories to my desktop machine, log in with my account in all of them and synchronize all the sessions without problems?

Thanks a lot in advance!, and let me know if I should add any technical information.

Kind regards!
