How do you determine which device will be synced with what?

I have multiple computers, and I don't know which one is providing the "base" sync, or which one is being upgraded. It appears that new changes (an added extension, or bookmark) gets "erased" by something. There does not seem to be a way to say PC 'A' is the device to sync to or, to say PC 'B' adds a bookmark and I want it reflected on 'A' and 'C.'

It would help if I could access or see the sync so that I could figure what is forming the "base" of my synced data, or if I could edit that directly to push to all devices.

Hi everybody, I wanted to try the Sync Feature today after downloading Firefox for developers, but I actually choose the wrong e-mail address. Let's my account is me@you.com, I wrote mee@you.com without noticing.

The thing is, I was panicking since I had all kind of private info in that browser, even corporative info, but know someone else in the world has full access to that info!

I tried from 2 different computers to sync and sign up with another account that I have, and once that you sync there is no way to delete your info from the browser of the person that got the confirmation e-mail!!

I tried already: - unsyncing the e-mail from my browser - I tried to delete the account but it didn't let me in (it was waiting for the e-mail confirmation to be received), and when I tried it back, it would tell me that the password was wrong (i.e. The guy even changed his PW!!!) - deleted some profile folders that someone recommended in an old post.

If anyone has an idea please let me know. If not, if at least can someone tell me how to report this to the Sync Team, also let me know please.

Should you disconnect your Firefox account before you use “Refresh Firefox”? (Prevent the syncing account from remembering the refresh)

I know that you can use the profile folder that Firefox creates to restore after you refresh. I’m just wondering if you can disconnect your Firefox account so that the refresh may not be considered. Then after you connect, all the extensions come back.

Chrome has:

> Restore settings to their original defaults.

I’m not sure how it works in Chrome, but I kept my account signed-in during the refresh. When I came back, the extensions were disabled, and I just turn them back on, whereas I think that all the add-ons were removed in Firefox.

After getting a new computer, downloading firefox, and signing into my account, none of my saved bookmarks or add-ons have synced from my previous computer. Instead, the sync seems to have just saved the fresh version of firefox with no data.


How can I access an older sync point so as to restore the older data for bookmarks and addons?

Similar to previous question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1091574 I have several user accounts on one PC (Win7) that I would like to sync across to the Win 10 installation on the same PC, and maybe to other devices in the future. I have this for my own system, but when I try this for another account I get an error "There is another account on the PC - do you want to merge accounts" - see attached screenshot. Of course I do not want to merge data.

The "solution" in the referenced question above suggests renaming the computer for each Sync account. Where and how do I do this? The question about merging accounts comes before I have a chance to enter Sync settings, such as the device name.

I first used sync between my pc and mobile device. In regards to bookmarks, on my mobile device, sync created a folder labled Desktop Bookmarks. And on my pc, there's a folder labeled Mobile Bookmarks. I now want to sync with another pc making 3 devices (2 Desktop, 1 Mobile). However, when I do that, it makes my bookmarks look exactly the same as my first pc. I don't want that. One PC is home, the other is work. I use different bookmarks at each place with the occasional overlap. I have it set up where the bookmarks I use most on each computer are on the toolbar. The others are in Bookmarks Menu. Obviously I use different bookmarks at home more often than at work and vice versa. Is there a way instead of distinguishing between Mobile Bookmarks and Desktop Book marks, that they can be separated by device? You already ask for each device name anyway.

This sync from Firefox browser to to my Android tablet is driving me up a wall. I created a sync account and downloaded Firefox for Android for my tablet. Then tried too sync from the desktop browser and then from the table without success. Then I realized sync needs to know what device and where the device is located. But I haven't found any information on how to link a device to sync.

So I give up. How does sync find my tablet? What is the procedure to add a device so sync can find it?

I find Sync convenient when, e.g., I am on a public computer. But when I am done using that computer, I want to delete all my bookmarks, etc., to leave Firefox as I found it on that computer. Disconnecting my Sync account leaves all the bookmarks, however. How can I restore Firefox to its original state when I am done?

I have tried the "Reset Firefox" option at about:support without success—my bookmarks remain in the browser.

Thank you

When you go into Firefox sync and deselect an item currently syncing, such as history, does it remove that data from the server?

I only found one similar topic but this is not disconnecting from what I understand so perhaps the answer was about the old version of sync. This setting is stating you don't want to sync that data and is universal for the account. Deselecting history will deselect it on all devices/computers. Does it then remove that data from the sync servers? As of now (1/2016).

I signed into my firefox account to my wife's laptop will mine was in for repair. I have signed out now, and I believe she never set up a sync account. But all of my bookmarks and passwords and autofill is still there for my account. It is making it difficult for her to find her stuff. How do I get mine off. I've tried signing out and doing the command prompt profile manager, but it only shows default user.
