Hi, some years ago sending tabs to a device worked fine, but for some time now it stopped working. Is it just me or is it a general bug? All my devices are listed in my account. It also shows that they are updated frequently. I tried sending from Windows-Firefox to Android-Firefox and back. Nothing worked. What can I do? Best regards, Eric

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

I recently upgraded to Windows 11, and was very careful, I thought, to back up my Firefox bookmarks and the tab plugin I use to save my sessions because for whatever reason Firefox can't handle that reliably. It all worked, because I could just sync it, but now a month later I had to reinstall Windows and... I can't sync my browser.

I've tried every password I could think of. I can't recall if I wrote it down somewhere last time, or changed it since, but I'm pretty sure I'm using the right email. Right now I'm logged in with another account.

And while I see a tab session saved from last month, which is unfortunately a little out of date but better than nothing, I don't see any saved bookmarks from this year. Just one from a year ago. I have no idea what's happened exactly, but I wasn't as careful this time because the sync worked so recently.

Now I'm stuck! I have some very important bookmark folders saved, that are key to all my projects basically. I can't just start fresh. But I can't log in, can't find any password change written down in my notes, which I may just have forgotten to note down. And I can't find any contact for Firefox support.

I do value security when it comes to handling my data but there must be a way to verify who I am, and change the password using my email?

Unable to sync firefox PC to android phone

I am not a geek and I follow all the details of 'how to etc etc' but nothing works and the phone goes into random loops and keeps telling my I cannot sync (I KNOW that). Firefox has no phone number or email system for technical support (or any type of support) just this hit and miss system of 'forums' (or is that fora). I tried to send a bug report but I am NOT signing up for another (geek speak) account just to send you the problem. Please fix this issue - it never used to happen on older versions - how can I roll back my firefox to something that works properly?? Here is the error report, enjoy, to me it is written in ancient g(r)eek!

Seems like when I tried logging in to my old account with a password reset, I somehow created a second account with the same email.

All my bookmarks and extension set ups seem to be gone.

Never had this issue, and have been using the same firefox account for like 5 years.

Syncing Firefox browser on iMac and MacBook Pro

Howdy, I just need to sync Firefox on my iMac and on my MacBook Pro. But this is surprisingly difficult to do. [[this page|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-sync-my-computer]] says to "click the 'Sign In' button next to 'Sync and save data'". It shows a handy little screenshot of a Sign In button, but I cannot see said button or the Sync and save data button even though I'm signed in to Firefox. This page gives me a handy QR code to sync Firefox on my mobile device, but I want to sync Firefox on my laptop. This page [[about:preferences#searchResults]] ] says "Sorry! There are no results in Settings for 'sync'". (Why ever not?)

It seems it should be very easy to sync Firefox between two computers; indeed it should be blindingly obvious, but it's not. What am I missing here? Thanks in advance for your help.

For some reason my passwords went missing locally and when I went to sync them my account would not connect and the saved password was missing. So I went through the password reset process to sign into my sync account and when I resigned into it to sync, there was no passwords on the account.

Is there any backup performed by mozilla or any other way to get like a backup of the online account passwords somehow. My local logins.json files are corrupt so I cant use them.

This is extremely disappointing if they cant be retrieved.

Hi,

I have read through some of the past similar issues with passwords not syncing across devices and the only official answer I seem to find from the Firefox team is to "manually or force sync"...

However that does not work. I have just saved a new login on my mobile, I have manually synced or "sync now" on both my mobile and desktop, restarted both devices and still...this login does NOT appear on my Desktop.

So please help! For all I know there could be other logins saved on my mobile that don't appear on my desktop and vice versa.

I do not want to uninstall Firefox.

Kind Regards, Alex van der Merwe

Recently I activated 2FA on Firefox. I scanned the barcode by Google authenticator, to make it my code generator.

I'm now trying to enter Firefox on my laptop. After typing my password, when I try to enter one of the generated Google Authenticator codes, I constantly get a response "Invalid code".

I had to use one of the backup codes (out of the 8), and managed to enter my account on the laptop, but none of the logins and passwords were found there (it's empty).

My first question is why does Firefox reject the codes received from Google Authenticator (do I have to cancel my 2FA and define it once again? but I did everything by the book, with GA, and it seemed fine the other day).

My second question: I finally managed to enter my account with one of the eight backup code. Why are there no passwords etc? Aren't they automatically drawn from my usual (existing) account?

The laptop runs Win 10. I installed the 2FA on my main computer, which runs Win 11.

Thank you very much in advance, Eldad

Labelled as "Firefox Sync" as it may be involved, as the only preserved data is seemingly what comes through firefox sync.

Hi all, My C drive filled itself with 50GB of Crusader Kings 3 crash logs.

While the drive was (unknowingly) full, I opened firefox. Firefox was...wonky...and instantly I could tell something was wrong, as my speeddial homepage was missing all the sites. My best guess is that, in the worst timing ever, firefox sync chose this time to sync. I immediately cleared space on the drive, and restarted firefox. No extension data recovered. I restarted the PC. No extension data recovered.

I began following Firefox troubleshooting steps, such as checking about:profile. Other profiles are present, but each lacks any extensions or extension data. I widened my search with Everything, to search everywhere for any waylaid installs or profiles that may hold backups. Specifically, prefs.js, extensions.json, firefox.exe (incase I was somehow running a non-default install location) or any sign of other installations. I did find some hits, but none had extensions installed.

Perhaps useful, my FF profile weave folder is populated with many CORRUPT files, and the 'failed' folder lists addons, bookmarks, clients, extension-storage and prefs from it's most recent sync. Perhaps this is the result of trying to write to a full disk?

This is mostly an exercise of curiosity now, as the developer of Group Speed Dial (Juraj Mäsiar) helped me recover from their own backup system seperate from the Mozilla Preferences. I have an easy way to see if any backup file has the correct data, as I have many settings that are instantly visible.

Useful info: Antivirus - None added (Windows Defender) FF Version - 111.0.1 (64-bit) Profile - default-release

(Moz Helpers, the remainder of this post is irrelevant, and purely to help future travellers) If a weary traveller comes across this post in the future, I gift you my knowledge from the year 2023 of Group Speed Dial. At this time, the way you access the backups on your system is to navigate to the Group Speed Dial homepage. If you are on the default homepage, you should find the option to set it as New Tab or Homepage in Firefox settings. Next, as you face the oblivion of an empty dialler page, click the Burger Menu (top-right for me) for the extension. NOT the firefox burger menu, the one as if you were clicking a menu in a website. For me, the Fourth option is History/Backups. This is a new-ish feature from the developer, so don't be surprised if it move around...be they seem very proud of it, so I imagine it lurks somewhere!

If you just want to recover your extension list, at this time you can find a complete list of everything by examining extensions.js, extension-settings.js and extension-preferences.js. There is a tool online for helping parse into a human readable table, but I would not rely on it, and instead look into a generic JSON formatter to make the data human readable. The site is jeffersonscher.com, which has a extension file reader here https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/extensionsjson.html

Have a nice day all!

I can prove that I'm using the same e-mail address but with different domain thus making the last statement from [[an article here|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-if-im-locked-out-two-step-authentication]] invalid.

Any idea how I can contact Mozilla to restore access or delete my account to recreate it again? Cannot find an e-mail address to create a ticket :( I don't want to use custom e-mail domain for Firefox account.

Thanks!

Hi, not sure what I'm doing wrong, but my logins and passwords simply will not synch between devices. I principally use a desktop Win10 machine, and an iOS version of Firefox. Have double-checked settings on both devices, tried forcing a manual sync from each to the other, all to no avail. Any ideas on what I need to do differently? TIA.

Which files I need to recover my password?

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

A recently added computer's Firefox is not available on the "Send Tab To Device" list.

Both computers are logged into my Firefox account and Firefox is syncing. The new computer populated with my extensions and other synced data. The new computer shows the old computer in it's Send Tab list, but the old computer does not have the new computer's Firefox name in the Send Tab list.

On both computers, I can go to the menu / Manage Account and see the list "Connected Services - Everything you are using and signed into." On both computers, I can see the other computer's Firefox name in the list, and it reports "synced a few seconds ago".

But when I use the context menu and try to send a tab under "Send Tab To Device" the new computer is not on the list.

This article does not discuss this situation. For the case of "I don’t see my device listed" it just says "Sign In", but that has already been completed and is working on both systems.

I noticed that on my laptop a few days ago I only had 12 passwords dating back to about September 2023 but previously I had had upwards of 80 saved passwords in my Firefox account. I didn’t think too much of it because all of my passwords were still available on my desktop and my mobile devices. however I checked yesterday and the same thing happened to the rest of my devices. Only 12 recently saved passwords were available. while troubleshooting I may have made the problem worse because now there are no saved passwords. Is there any way I can restore my 80+ passwords so that I don’t have to go through and reset all of them one by one which would be very time-consuming and annoying. Any help would be appreciated please please please thank you.
