This is for login to Mozilla and Firefox Sync.

Roboform password keeper cannot fill in user or pw on Mozilla login page

Please see below, this discussion with Roboform tech that RF cannot fill in username or pw on Mozilla login page. Is it really Mozilla’s intention to make it impossible for a password keeper program to store and login to Mozilla on the Firefox browser, but to force people to use some other browser to do such a login that customers may have to do several times a day?

“Thank you for your message. We have reviewed and responded to your message "RF sees no forms to fill on Mozilla Firefox login page" (#1059819).

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

Natalia replied (2021/06/13 04:49 pm EDT): Hello.

Firefox prohibits access to this URL to extensions, so RoboForm cannot save a Login for this address when you visit it in Firefox.

If you try to use this URL in any other browser, you will be able to save a Login and then use it to log in your Firefox account.

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

You wrote (2021/06/13 11:33 am EDT): RF sees no forms to fill on Mozzilla login page. I've tried reinstalling Moz and RF, no help. RF still works on other pages as always. There are some file(s) attached - Log in RFSS to see them.

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

-- Best Regards, RoboForm Support”

Mozilla Support, I look forward to your reply. As it is now, I can only login to Mozilla using my long, strong pw, by copying it from secure storage location and pasting in...very slow and tedious. Thanks for your consideration.

Best regards, Tim Warlick

So based to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818 the option mentionned in about:config doesn't exist anymore.

in palce of that it has been replaced I guess by services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID Well this option doesn't do shit. I still got my theme sync even with restarting the browser. It's very disappointing.

Unknown locations in Sync

I have two laptops and a mobile phone that are connected to Firefox and have sync operating. One the laptops shows a location of Wrexham which is approximately correct. The other shows a location of Boardman, OR, United States, a place some 6000 miles away and of which I have never heard. Googling the location gives me no useful information, other than it is a small town with no special characteristics. A screenshot of part of the Firefox Accounts page illustrates what the situation is.

The laptop stated as in Boardman has a location set within Windows. That is not Wrexhan but is only a few miles from there.

I have used iplocation.net which gives me the location of my ISP, in England.

I sometimes use a VPN (for work) and when being used iplocation.net gives a different English location which I think is the locaton of the ISP for my Employer.

I am unsure what is going on here nor do I know what implications there are for my security. I do not seem to be able to fix this.

Can anyone help, please?

I want to use a different account linked to my Firefox. All data i used at first account is partially obsolete. At the same time i want to keep the data for just in case moments. When i use another account address, Firefox asks for my primary account. I just want to make a new account. Why i need the primary and also a verification at another device. At first i did manage and got a second sync account, but then Firefox started to combine those 2 accounts. More bookmarks. twice bookmark Firefox. I just want to start from scratch (without losing the data i already got). Firefox behaves likes Google or Facebook it follows you where ever you go, keeps tracks on you.

The Firefox account settings page displays a list of logged in devices at the very bottom of the page (connected services).

I have verified all logged in devices to be correct. However for one of the devices (my main computer browser), the location displayed is COMPLETELY off. I live in Norway, and it claims device location is somewhere in Oregon, United States. I do not use any VPN services and both my public IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are located in Norway, from which I connect with the device/browser in question (whatismyipaddress.com shows correct location for both of them). Also, activity timestamp is updated in accordance with my own activity from the client, but the location remains wrong. I also tried logging out the device, and logging back in, but this did not fix the location.

Obviously the location service used for the logged in device list is unreliable. I suggest that you please also show the latest IP address used by each device, so that more technically inclined users can verify correct addresses themselves, should the location be way off. It is unsettling to see strange locations (for known devices) on a page used to verify the security of my Firefox account. In this instance, there is no security breach, but it required me to spend much time investigating.

I do not know if it matters, but the device in question is a Linux desktop Firefox client.

Hello I need help with the bookmarks. I recently performed a clean format on my computer for a fresh start. Knowing my bookmarks and save files are linked on my account, figured it would be safe since I've synced from the same account before. Problem is when logging in to firefox, my bookmarks didn't sync anymore. Please help thank you.

As of today all of my new logins are showing up with a sign in location of 'Boardman, OR, United States'.

This is nowhere near where I live. I'm not using a VPN, and have checked my IP's location using GeopIP services. This has never happened in the past either.

Is there an issue with the service at the moment, or is something more dangerous potentially going on?

Will this work? Does mozilla have a copy of the data stored like "cloud"?

Or must I leave one device synced, but logged out?
