Every time reinstall on my main computer, sync appears to lose all its cloud-data? AKA sync will not pull any data down. Windows 10, build 1511.

This happens every time I have to reinstall my system. In the past I would copy my profile over but this is not an available option. I lost over 200, distinct, bookmarks.

This particular time, I did not setup my profile immediately as I had other environment setup concerns so I let firefox go while rebuilding my environment. Afterwards I went in and deleted the start up profile, ran firefox.exe -p created a new one and set up my sync immediately with the same account I had been using less than 36 hours before. It has been setup now for over 12 hours and still nothing. In case it matters, I did have to do a password reset in between loss of old system and start of this system.

Recovery options? I will do whatever is asked...

What is the point of sync if I can not download my data? I have seen it said that it is not a backup solution, OK, so then how does it work? When a new browser is connected it connects to Mozilla sync and then sync asks other devices for their data?

I am royally pissed at this, as far as I am concerned this is pretty much a deal breaker for me. Firefox is better in a lot of ways than chrome, but Mozilla made a big deal about firefox sync, but if it never works than what is the point? The old system worked and was reliable for me. This new system has been nothing but trouble... Why should I use something if a heavily advertised component appears to be broken?

I have tried all of the problem shooting solutions on the forums. I have tried to update all, reinstall firefox, and nothing works. My bookmarks will not sync and neither will my history on just this computer. It syncs with my work computer and my other home computer.

Today I reinstalled my PC. I already used Firefox Sync, so assumed all my bookmarks would be safe. So, I did the following:

-Reinstall Windows (8.1) -After successful installation of Windows, I installed Firefox. I lost my account info (username/password), so I needed to recover/reset the password. So I did. No problem here. -After resetting the password, I logged in to Firefox Sync. I noticed all my bookmarks are gone

What happened?

Title says it. I'm getting duplicates of folders in bookmarks (top level, sub folders, sub sub folders, up to 10 duplicates now). I turned off synch, deleted all duplicates (took a few hours), then re-logged in and it synched and PUT ALL MY DUPLICATES BACK AGAIN.

I found one answer to one guy in the support site, but I don't understand all he did in the registry, etc etc.

Why can't it just work? Why can't I find a solution in their data base, others must have this problem too.

Anyway, anybody know how to solve this?

Thanks very much.

Jim

I needed to re-configure my PC due to the adware: "getconstantfun"

Not a big issue to do, including the reloading of software BUT when i re-installed Firefox and asked it to sync, ALL is blank, no apps, no bookmarks, no setups. I did not do a backup or export as not need in past.

Even though I did log-in and try a sync, It is like I have a brand new, blank setup.

Any ideas?

Cheers Mark

I'm using new Firefox sync. Everything was working fine on my mac but then i decided to format my HDD and install fresh system. After system installation I installed FF 43.0.4 , then i clicked Already have an account? Sign in and I logged in to my FF sync account . Unfortunately nothing happend. No bookmarks, passwords, tabs, add-ons showed. All the sync options seem to be checked correctly. I get no error message. I also tried to uninstall and install firefox but this also change nothing. Before I formatted my HDD drive I changed my FF sync password but I don't think this could affect sync. So right now i have no access to websites, bank accounts and other because all my bookmarks and pass stock somewhere on FF servers

Hello, I'm using Firefox Accounts functionality with account "bogdan.florea at tss - yonder. com". Starting with 01.01.2016 I lost all History, saved passwords for all visited sites etc? Is there anything I can do to import/restore all of them? For History and Bookmarks I found a way, but for saved passwords did not.

I use firefox on two computers (iMac desktop and HP laptop). I have sync enabled for both, but recently, the order of items in the Bookmarks toolbar is different from one device to the other. If I reorder the Toolbar items the way I want on one device, the comeout vastly different on the other. If I then go to the second and reorder, that messes up the order on the original machine. This is a new bug...not serious, but very annoying. I'm used to seeing bookmarks items in a certain position, and it's annoying to have to hunt for them elsewhere in Bookmarks.

Anyone else have this problem, or have an idea whats up?

Thanks in advance.
