I inadvertently “signed out” one of my devices so now I cannot see it in my connected services lists. When you sign out a device it states that you will no longer be able to sync or see the device. How do I correct this action so that I can see the device again?

I have a feeling I know the answer, but wanted to confirm. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to reset my PC. Upon doing that and downloading Firefox all of my data is gone. Bookmarks, saved logins, etc. all gone. I thought once I logged into my Firefox account everything would be there. I've logged into my account on other computers in the past and all my stuff was there but not this time. Now it's saying all of my stuff (profiles, etc) was created today. Is my stuff really gone forever? I thought the whole point of the Firefox account was so I could just login and have everything sync.

The logs on desktop in "about:sync-log" show "error-sync-1679324467306.txt"

I believe I have tried absolutely everything there is to try in the help articles and forum here. Both devices are indeed signed into the same account.

Thanks for any assistance.

Sync resetting when adding new device

Every time I connect my account on another device to sync up, it totally resets extensions and new tab shortcuts on ALL of my devices. It keeps my bookmarks, theme and what extensions are installed, but again all of my new tab shortcuts and my extension are reset, which is a pain in the rear for extensions like NoScript and taking the time to rebuild all of the new tab shortcuts.

Is there any way to set a device as the primary to push out to others or download those settings to avoid having to set them up again?

Questions about own firefox sync server

Hello. I just set up a self hosted firefox-syncserver on my homeserver.

I created a virtual host on nginx which looks something like this: firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com and have a mariadb database as the backend. In about:config on firefox, I then set the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri to https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5.

Everything seems to work fine, but I still have some questions which I did not find an answer to online.

   Since I have this public accesspoint for my syncserver now, can not anyone just use it? What stops them from using my url (https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5) in their about:config?
   What is the SYNC_MASTER_SECRET for which I set to a 256-bit random key?
   When I navigate to https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5 in my browser, why does it say {"status":"error","errors":[{"location":"body","name":"","description":"Unauthorized"}]}

I would really appreciate a good answer, as I could not find anything good about these points online.

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.
