Hiya good citizens of the internet 👋

Please help me recover my bookmarks 🥺

I've gone through every single support article on this topic and tried everything suggested and still no luck. This is my hail mary.

How I got here I needed to do a full wipe and reinstal of my macOS; this was conducted with the help of the Genuis bar. Upon reinstalling Firefox, I signed into my account and my bookmarks are all gone, records of them empty.

I should also note that nothing else ported over. No passwords, no browser extensions. Nada. The passowrds and extensions aren't a big deal. I use a 3rd-party password manager and can easily re-download the handful of extensions/widgets. But I heavily relied on bookmarks for both frequently visited sites and ones rarely-used which I knew were important for future reference. And I cannot remember 80% of them...

What else I've tried other than what's suggested in help article:

  • Because I did not check to confirm which Firefox profile I've been signed into for ages and ages before doing the reset, I thought maybe I had just signed into the wrong one. I proceeded to try every other email address I have, including two from my old workplace. None of the other 5 emails had profiles created. I know this because it prompted the sign up userflow; create a password, etc.
  • But I also know for a fact that the bookmarks were saved as part of a profile because I used the profile sync feature to auto-port all my bookmarks when I first got this Macbook a year and a bit ago.
  • The folders where bookmark backup info is stored locally are empty... Clearly, it wasn't stored in my icloud documents (that's on me for not double-checking)
  • I checked my other device (mobile phone) to see if I had firefox downloaded and was signed into the same account as the original, with the bookmarks still visible. Of course I didn't. I only use Safari on my phone 😭

""Grasping at straws: the only other things I can think of""

  • Is there some way of linking my MAC address with my IP address and using those to triangulate the correct profile?
  • Because my computer got wiped and nothing is saved locally, my only hope is that my bookmarks are floating around the ether. If so, I just need to figure out how to find them.

Any and all help/suggestions are massively appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

Lauren

Unable to synchronize containers

I have one Windows and one MacBook machine and Firefox on both. Both are signed in to my Mozilla account. On the Windows machine I have 5+ containers, these containers never sync to my MacBook Firefox. I have signed out of all machines, including an iPad and iPhone. Nothing has worked over multiple months. Note that at some time in the past the containers did sync.

The MacBook is on Sonoma 14.5, and FireFox 128.0. The Windows is Windows 10 Pro and FireFox 128.0.

Please help.

Avoiding pre-existent setting for plugins to be overwritten from a new machine.

Hello everyone, I am experiencing this issue since - I suppose - Firefox Sync existed. My main machine has - like any other machine I own - Firefox always up to date and a set of plugins like No-Script, an ad-blocker, a theme, GUI icon disposition and whatnot. When I install Firefox on a new device or machine and then proceed to sync them, I lost the theme across all my synced devices, ALL of the registered sites I have trained No-Script and the adblocker not to block and my GUI settings. In short every new machine with a fresh install and sync of Firefox will wipe and overwrite to its defaults any synced custom configuration I have. Is there a solution for this?

Thank you.

Hi,

unfortunatly i didn´t notice the warning when resetting my password. Could you please restore my Account from 1 day ago or so? I need my Passwords, but now they are all gone. And trying to find out my old Password for the Account would be easier then having to deal with reseting all other passwords.

Thanks in advance, Friedrich Staigle

Can't Restore Profile After Changing Password But It Still Exists on Another Device? Any Way To Restore It?

I just switched to a new computer and I believe I changed my Firefox Sync password without realizing it deletes my entire profile (I only noticed the warning after going to change it a second time!) - which I would really like to get back. On my iPad, which I moved from, my old bookmarks still show up in their entirety when I hit "bookmarks" - and everything else seems to be there. Firefox on the iPad is asking me to sign in but I don't want to do that, in case it erases everything there. Is there any way to retrieve my profile either from the iPad, on which it still seems to exist in some form, or by another method? Thank you.

My Win 11 computer blue screened on me. So, I reinstalled the OS, with saving my data option. Now, after reinstalling Firefox, I can not get all my bookmarks. I have Firefox, with my bookmarks, installed on another computer. How do I sync to grab those bookmarks?
