Hi,

I recently had to switch computers. I have had a Firefox account for years and utilize the Firefox sync. However, I am unable to login to my Firefox account on my new computer. There is a "working" banner at the top but it never loads. I can access my account on Chrome but there is not an option to sync my data back. In the Firefox browser, it does not give me the option to sync.

Thanks,

Just wondering if any of the developers could add a domain exclusion option within the browser history settings where users could exclude the domains which they don't want the browser to record the history of.

Now many of you would argue that why don't you use private mode. Blah blah blah. But it's not the same thing. I gotta use my GMail, Google-drive, Outlook, or Facebook, etc everyday, so the private mode is not an option.

These domain URLs are not necessarily required to be stored and synced every day after day when nobody or at least 99% of people are not gonna use them ever.

Would be better, if users get the option where they can control which domains they want to keep the history of. This would offset millions and billions bytes of the data from Mozilla and also speed up and improve the history management.

Please share your thoughts.

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).

Some of the Extensions are not Syncing. I have the same version of the Browser on both devices. The Extensions are updated on both devices. I have logged out and in. I have disabled and enabled back the syncing of extensions. I have disabled and enabled back the syncing of each individual extension. I have hit mannual sync multiple times. Both Machines are updated, and have been restarted.

I have no idea what is going on for it not to sync, when I go to install the extension on the PC that is missing, it recognizes that is installed.

I have no more ideas

Hi there, I have an old laptop which has FireFox installed on it with a lot of older Browsing History dated as far back as 2015 or 2016 which I've been attempting to transfer over to my newer Laptop's FireFox by synchronizing my FireFox account on both browsers. The bookmarks & tabs were synchronized between both, however, the browsing history from the older laptop doesn't transfer over to my newer laptop's Firefox.

I searched online for some troubleshooting, & discovered how to use about:config, where I found

  1. "places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages'" &
  2. "places.history.expiration.max_pages",

& for both I set the value to 999999. The result was the same.

I would like to inquire for assistance regarding this, if possible. Thank you!

Hello,

I would like to set up different profiles for different purposes. I tried creating a new profile with the profile manager. When I opened the new profile in a new window, it asked me to sign in. After signing in, it synced all my bookmarks and settings from the default profile.

I then tried to edit the new profile by deleting the bookmarks that I don't need it to have. But this was then instantly synced to my default profile and I lost those bookmarks entirely.

So, I don't understand how to make separate profiles that have separate settings and bookmarks and whatnot. I would like to have different profiles that are all attached to the same account and can be used on multiple devices, but i don't want them to sync with one another. That seems to completely defeat the purpose of having multiple profiles (they all end up exactly the same).

I tried to get around this problem by creating an entirely new Firefox account, but then I get a message saying it will merge it's info with the account I just logged out of. This behavior makes no sense. Lets assume I have more than one user on a machine, and they each have their own account. If one logs off, and the other comes and logs in, now all their info gets lumped together?

I also tried to have two Firefox windows open, with one signed in and one not, but they mirror each other. So I can't work in multiple profiles or accounts on the same machine at the same time.

Back to the main question. I assume I am just using profiles wrong. How do I set it up so different profiles DO NOT sync with one another, but only with themselves across multiple devices.

This is a burner account, obviously because I can't access my "main" account.

I haven't used Firefox since 2020-ish and I felt like I wanna come back to see if it's better than my current browser, but when I tried logging in, it asked for my 2FA code, I do not have that anymore, I have the Authenticator app from Google but I must've deleted Firefox after not using it. Now I looked into how to find the recovery code or whatever the hell it's called, but that I also can't find whether it be in files for a real old notebook.

Is there any possible way to find this code or change it? I don't care about all the information on said account if it gets deleted or not. I just hope to get access to this "main" account so I don't have to continue using a burner.

-Thanks, Random Guy on The Internet.
