When I updated my password I got a message in my E-Mail saying that I needed to login in the other devices I got my account in, the thing is I don't remember at all what devices I was logged in, I just remember about my virtual machine, wich I don't have anymore since I reinstalled my pc.

Hello! Today I power on my computer and for some reason my Firefox account was not configured on the browser. I just logged in with my Firefox account and wait until it finishes syncing all. After a few minutes it finished "correctly". I said "Correctly" because I was very surprised when I detect that all my saved passwords were not being sync. I tried with another computer that has the same Firefox account and it has all the passwords, but nothing appears on my computer. I tried several things like restart computer, logout and login again, checked if key.db file exists on my home, etc but nothing works. I just found one difference between the devices (both are Linux and bot are Fedora): On the device that I can see all the passwords Firefox version is 73. On the device that I described before that I cannot see any password Firefox version is 76. Can it be affecting the sync? I'm worried about to update Firefox on the devices that passwords are being displayed and lost it on both devices.

My OS is Fedora 31 and my firefox version is 76.

Thanks!

I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

How to remove a firefox account from a profile without deleting the account + mozilla login bug

I have created a new profile from a copy of an existing profile.

The old profile is synced using OldProfileSyncEmail@etc as the email.

I don't want to sync the new profile. I want to remove the account from the sync nag box on the new profile, but I want to keep the account for use with the old profile.

=====================

Mozilla login bug:

I use another email address as login to mozilla pages: EmailForFirefoxPages@etc. This login is in Firefox 'logins & passwords"., with a different password.

I don't want to use my sync emails (which should be PRIVATE.) for forums, addons, bug reporting etc!

When I try to login to mozilla pages, the login box prepopulates with OldProfileSyncEmail@etc.

It stays prepopulated after I click "use another account".

It does not offer the correct email as an alternative, even after I DELETE the pre-populated email. (MOSTLY - one time it did???)

When I manually type in EmailForFirefoxPages@etc and click continue, the password box is STILL prepopulated with the WRONG PASSWORD - for OldProfileSyncEmail@etc. Which is NOT the password in Logins and Passwords for EmailForFirefoxPages@etc.

=========================

ACTIONS TAKEN:

I deleted the OldProfileSyncEmail@ login from logins&passwords, now the moz login box prepopulates with the correct (only) login. (But if I do that on my synced accounts, the sync won't be able to log in!??).

The sync nag box is still telling me to reconnect to the deleted sync email.

===========================

ACTIONS WHICH CANNOT BE TAKEN:

Delete the account. (It is used by other profiles to sync.)

============================

QUESTIONS:

How do I fix the ff login box in my old profile where I CANNOT delete the login.

How do I get rid of the old profile's address in the sync nag in my new profile.

Hello everyone, I hope this finds you healthy and safe! Thank you in advance for your help, it's much appreciated. I'm configuring a new computer that will replace my current one and while installing Firefox and turning on sync on the new computer I realized I forgot my Firefox account password and have been trying to reset it but I run into a funny issue. I go to the "forgot password" link and add my email address to get the "password reset" email which I do get. When I click on the link in the email, it takes me to the page where I can then enter my new password and then click on the "reset Password" button. I then enter my new password but when I click on the "Reset Password" button I get the error "Unable to deliver email". This is where I'm stuck. I cannot reset the password because it won't go passed the error. I've attached an image of what I get. Thanks again for your help, it's appreciated.

FF 72.0.1 for Windows. See if I can explain this problem. I migrated Chrome bookmarks to a new profile on my desktop. I cleaned up the migration bookmarks and saved to an html file for a backup. I also created a new profile on my laptop that I did attempt to sync with the desktop which was when I first noticed issues with the synced bookmarks/folders.

RIght now I have sync turned off on both machines and am concentrating only on the desktop. I deleted all the bookmarkbackups directory files and deleted places.sqlite and imported the saved html file to get the desktop where I want it. However, when I turn sync on (with sync turned off on the laptop) it adds folders and bookmarks, some of which were NOT there in the Chrome migration and some duplicates that I had created on the laptop. Deleting the WEAVE directory makes no difference. I don't know where this information is coming from, whether cache or ff backups, but I want to have a clean set of bookmarks, that I can sync to a clean laptop.

Can someone please tell me where this previously synced (some not) information is coming from so I can delete and start from scratch.

Before I begin, apologies in advance if this was answered many times already.

I have a situation where I have two work computers and a personal computer. For a while, I used a cloud storage solution to sync a single profile folder across my devices, but something messed up at some point, so I have not been doing that for a few years. Now I have three different profile data (specifically logins and bookmarks) that overlaps on some areas, but are different in others. I would like to merge them all without losing any data, but I don't want to just blindly create a mess.

So what happens when I log into same Firefox account across these devices? What would happen if I have different logins stored for the same page? or if some of the bookmarks are organized differently?

I was really looking forward to use Firefox Sync in order to spread my options over my devices, far less important are bookmarks and logins (for which I prefer KeePass). I thought that I will no longer have to set all my options like

  • customized address bar, control and menu bar
  • configurations within "about:config" like accesskey, full screen notification delay ...
  • search engines with ther shortcuts

Actually none of those is synced. What else is left to be meant by "options"? Is there an addon that syncs those (for me most important) configurations? Or is it a planned upcoming feature?

Bookmarks, logins and passwords are rather easy to transfer, while the configs (search engines, their shortcut, about:config customizations etc.) have to be set up laboriously on every single Firefox installation.

Thanks in advance -Robbie.
