Usability issues and security concerns regarding password sync with a master password

I setup up password sync with my desktop installations and observe the following behaviours which raise major questions for me:

  1. Desktop passwords do not appear at all
  2. Deleting the private data via Android does not clear the sync, but drops master password
  3. Retrieving saved passwords for mobile login sites

Desktop passwords do not appear at all

I'm not sure if this is due to different page URLs for the mobile login pages. But even when I go to the desktop pages I only see the usernames but the passwords stay blank. Even worse: I did not find any means to check if and which passwords at all are available on the device

Deleting the private data via Android does not clear the sync, but drops master password

After clearing/removing the stored data via Android, Firefox appears clean & vanilla but the Sync links seems still in operation but now without any master password!

I'm not sure if the Firefox UI is fooling me here, because it reports successful password synchronization after that. For me it appears, that this way a adversary would have easy way to circumvent any master password as soon as he has has physical access to my device.

Retrieving saved passwords for mobile login sites

On the desktop version on a regular basis I need to copy existing passwords into modified website forms. Therefore I use the saved password dialog to reveal and paste existing passwords. How would I do that when I'm on the road?


So - how do people use this feature successfully and safely at all?

I have set up sync on my laptop. First, how do I confirm that I have done that correctly? When I go to my android device using the Firefox app, sync says "not connected". When I press Connect, the next screen says "To Activate, select "Pair a Device" on your other device. (that is different than what the picture shows on other help screens). When I go to my PC and select pair a device and enter in the codes, the system "tries to connect; Connect to Sync" but it's always unsuccessful "waiting for other device". Then it times out and the options are to Try Again, Manual Setup, or Cancel. I attempted Manual Setup, but I could not find my Recovery Key anywhere (e.g., Options/Sync).

One other note. I have a new laptop. When I setup Firefox originally, it was on a different laptop that I no longer have. Is that part of my problem...?

Ok, so here goes. I had to do a fresh install of windows 7 and was not able to back anything up before doing so because of a Trojan. After reinstalling Firefox on the new OS I attempted to get my bookmarks back from my sync account that's connected to my android phone. It let me on the sync account after resetting the recovery key (there is no way to view it on Firefox for android) I click sync now and now none of my bookmarks or history is syncing from the server to my PC. Is sync a one way street? From pc to phone but not the other way around? I really need these bookmarks... I do have root access to the phone and looked in data>data>org.mozilla.firefox>databases but I do not know how I would go about importing the database data to my PC. Is it possible to either 1. sync my bookmarks from android to pc or 2. Copy and import the database file manually? Thank you.

Sync is working between desktop browsers (bookmarks+history) but only syncing history to android. Need bookmarks!!!

Sync is working perfectly between FF 36.0 and Dev Ed 37.0a2 on Windows 7 and 36.0 on Windows 8.1 for Bookmarks + History It's refusing to sync anything except History to … (читать ещё)

Sync is working perfectly between FF 36.0 and Dev Ed 37.0a2 on Windows 7 and 36.0 on Windows 8.1 for Bookmarks + History It's refusing to sync anything except History to FF 36.0 on Android 5.0.2 (Nexus7) and FF 36.0 on Android 4.4.4 (Moto G)

It's probably been quite a few weeks since it was successful with the bookmarks too. I've purged lots of bookmarks to reduce numbers (currently @ 4918 ish) and removed ALL bookmarks from both android browsers. Previously, I've disconnected the devices from Sync - even reinstalled FF on them but the problem persists. Since that's no longer making a difference, I'd like to find an *actual* solution :)

Previously, it worked without issue (mostly) but now does nothing - no stall, hang or delays when syncing - it would seem (judging by the speed of the UI when syncing) that the data simply isn't being sent (or requested) from the server.

The synced bookmarks (desktop) still show *old* data in the Mobile Bookmarks folder from when they used to sync. This isn't updated when anything is added on either Android device (one bookmark on each as a test).

I've enabled desktop sync logs as suggested in other similar posts, and managed to get remote debugging of the Moto G up and running, and managed to get it logging (adb logcat) to the console. Tapped for Sync and it looks like I've got something of use.

Is it possible to provide the logs via PM or e-mail?

Would "reading list" items be tipping the bookmarks over the 5000 limit? (They're also not syncing, but I assume they're a BM "category".) Or a combination of pending unsynced items (from the other device) added to existing items hit the same limit? When the limit is hit, is *all* bookmark syncing simply aborted? (Seems to be a current symptom... i.e. no attempt made - see below)

"Interesting" looking bits logcat: I/FxAccounts( XXXX ) : firefox :: BrowserRepoSession :: Unable to extract bookmark from cursor. Record GUID MVNVrWILD_-T, parent null/-3 I/FxAccounts( XXXX ) : firefox :: ServerSyncStage :: Stage bookmarks received 0 and sent 9 records in 1.72 seconds.

Thanks for your time - keep up the good work!

Cheers, Paul

1. I installed the CA certificate that was used to sign the certificate of my own Sync-1.5 server.

2. I verified that Firefox can connect to my own Sync-1.5 server without refusing the SSL certificate.

3. I used about:config to set identity.sync.tokenserver.uri to the address of my own Sync-1.5 server as described in https://docs.services.mozilla.com/howtos/run-sync-1.5.html

4. I signed in to my Firefox Account using Firefox->Settings->General->Sign in.

5. I navigated to Firefox->Settings->General an clicked on my account. Firefox tells me that I am logged in, but never synced

6. I click Sync now. Firefox still tells me that it never synced. Android->Settings->Accounts->Firefox tells me that it synced.

This was all done on a fresh installation of Firefox.

The logs of my webserver show no connection attempt from my device. Syncing my desktop Firefox (FF 45, Linux) using the same account and Sync-1.5 server works fine.

Firefox 46.0.1. Android 5.1, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8020

Is it possible to save a site to my synced bookmarks folder structure from Firefox on Android that way it will show up on my other synced devices later? For example:

I have a folder structure for bookmarks of "desktop bookmarks>personal". How can I go about saving Reddit.com into the personal folder from Firefox on Android?

If memory serves me this used to be possible before the sync was changed over a while back.

I just got a new Android phone and downloaded Firefox to it. I set up a sync account on my laptop and so I could sync my tabs and stuff to my Android phone. It worked at first and I could find my tabs and history and stuff. Now when I try to re-sync my Android and Laptop, so I can see the new Tabs I have opened up, it wont sync, and still shows the old tabs from one of the first times I sync'ed my phone. It just will not re-sync and show the tabs that I have currently open in my Firefox browser on my Laptop. Any help or answers would be great.

Anciallry to my profile becoming corrupted on Desktop Computer A (windows 7), and a subsequent sync of the corrupt information to Desktop Computer B (OSX 10.6), I'm left with all 1400ish bookmarks residing on Mobile Device C (Android Tablet).

During my attempts to restore, I had firefox services generate a new Recovery Key, prior to my knowing that my bookmarks were stored in "C".

when attempting to sync now, on the desktop, i see:
