Sync doesn't work between Windows, Linux, and Android

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome. I imported all the bookmarks and passwords from Chrome into Firefox on Windows.

Next, I installed it on Linux and later on Android. The sync is not working properly that is what I noticed. Basically I have all the data on my Windows PC Firefox. It is not syncing between other devices, that will be my notebook running Linux and my Android Phone.

I read other similar question son the forum and did a Google search as well. I already did re-install a few times to no avail.

Here is the log from "about:sync-log" : https://paste.ee/p/5e57H

How do I fix this?

repost from there, here its probably more appropriate: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1391582 In the meantime I figured out that sent tabs apparently only remain on the server for 60 days and that there is probably no log, even offline. But no definitive answer. And my feature request still remains for a history of sent tabs.

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).

Assigning a new device ID for Sync after having cloned Firefox settings to another device

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

Hi,

Firefox recently upgraded automatically, but the new version had a graphics glitch in the bookmarks toolbar. I decided to downgrade to the previous version, but now I've lost all my bookmarks and passwords even though I am signed in to my Sync account. How can I recover them? I really need that data for my work so I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance!

hello and good day to whom ever this massage gets to.

I just updated my windows at my work pc and all my programs were deleted and so I got signed out of all my accounts. I reinstalled firefox and tried to sign in but because its been a while I couldn't remember my password and had to reset it. but after all this and when I finally got into my account (with the same email address I was using until now) no matter how many times I click sync, nothing gets added to my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

then I checked with one on my phone to see whether that was working or not, and that was signed out as well and asks me to sign in again. I've been using this browser for years now and have many save information on this account I CAN'T LOSE ALL THAT. the primary account was on my laptop which is at home and currently I am terrified of turning that on and finding everything's gone again. please help me get my info back. I can't remember years of saved bookmarks and passwords.

I see instructions for sync' to a phone, how do I initially (connect) sync to my desktop from my laptop?

When I sync my bookmarks, how does is know which computer is the primary (the one that I want to duplicate changes from)?

For example, I added new bookmarks and revised some old ones on my laptop and did not have the sync on my desktop at the same time. Now, if I sync my laptop to my desktop, how does it know which device is my primary (in this case my laptop) where I made all the changes?

My goal is to revise all the bookmarks currently on my desktop to reflect all the changes I made to them on my laptop. I'd like to do it without duplicates or displaying old desktop residual bookmarks that I deleted and/or modified on the laptop prior to sync to the desktop.

In this case, should I delete my bookmarks from my desktop and then sync to my laptop so as to seamlessly & efficiently have my bookmarks toolbar on the laptop look the same on the desktop?

Thank you for your help here! Christopher

I have seen multiple copies of this question, some unanswered, some with the same "answer". All the questions are closed so I cannot reply to them. The "answer" does not work.

I have the "Show tabs from other devices" sidebar. I also can access from "Open application menu" > email address > list of synced tabs. Both methods show me the device name and all of my synced tabs. Neither method has an "open all tabs" option. If I right click my device name nothing happens. If I right click a tab, it opens that one tab. I don't know how many tabs I have on my Android. I have enough tabs that it only shows the infinity symbol instead of the number. It has shown the infinity symbol for a long time and I've opened many more tabs since. It could be hundreds or even thousands of tabs. I have 224 tabs on my laptop. I want to open all 224 laptop tabs plus all however many Android tabs on my laptop at the same time. I'm aware this will cause significant lag on my laptop. I'm not looking for a solution for that or people telling me not to do that. I want to know how to open all of my synced tabs at once on my laptop, without having to click through one by one.

Hi! I am currently logged into the Firefox browser on my Android mobile device. I just downloaded the browser to my new MacBook Air and would like to sync the two browsers like I did on my old laptop. Unfortunately I it's been so long that I forgot the password, sadly I never saved a recovery code (but will asap!) and I refuse to lose my bookmarks by resetting the password.

Where can I look in the mobile browser to see my password to input it into the desktop browser? Thank you!

I got a new device and had to sign in and sync everything. When firefox asked about syncing I didn't realize it was asking about using the edge bookmarks to sync with. I tried to cancel but it was too late. Can I undo/remove firefox syncing to edge? Does this mean any changes in Edge will automatically change firefox now? I do not want edge bookmarks/settings. I want to get my old firefox settings back. If it matters: Windows 10 home on one device, Windows 11 on another. All browsers up-to-date.

After updating to Firefox 110 (snap running under Ubuntu Studio 22.04) I get "No synced logins found". The settings still show me logged in to my Firefox account and my synced bookmarks are still there. The saved logins are still there in my Firefox 110 installation running under Windows 10. A similar problem was reported here: Surface Pro 8 recently had No Synced Logins Found while other devices do not have this issue but I am opening a separate thread because the OP gives the impression that this is platform-specific. I am afraid to do anything in the Firefox installation under Ubuntu, for fear of overwriting (i.e. deleting) the saved logins which I can still access on my Windows installation. How should I proceed?

Thank you!

I have two profiles on one computer and I want to use these profiles in different languages for web pages (one in English and one in my native language). If I sign-in the two profiles using one common Firefox account, this seems to be impossible: a change of the language setting in one profile immediately reflects into the other profile. Is there a way to disable the sync of language? I want histories and bookmarks to be synced across the profiles and thus I want to use the same account. Thank you.

I recently had to factory reset my computer and had to download and sync my firefox account all over again. It's been a week and firefox is still syncing, none of my bookmarks, add-ons, history or top sites on the new tab are showing up. Thankfully, it appears that most of my passwords have been synced.

I've read some other threads for tips and can confirm that I don't have this account logged in to other devices and I don't have a vpn or proxy running. I am able to obtain the sync logs but I have no idea how to read it.

How can I make the bookmarks, add-ons, history and top sites sync faster?
