I am too stupid to understand Firefox Sync - can I ask some dumb questions?

Được đăng

I keep getting messages to sign in or sync and when I follow the links it says open authenticator app and put in some code.

I do not have an authenticator app on Windows 10 PC - what is this all about, please?

I must have been using Mozilla products for about 15 years but they are getting slicker and I am getting dumber - should I pack up and go back to Internet Explorer or even use Microsoft EDGE?

It looks that two factor two-factor authentication (2FA) is enabled on the Firefox Account you use. *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/secure-firefox-account-two-step-authentication *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-if-im-locked-out-two-step-authentication

I am just too stupid to work this out

I keep being prompted to enter a QR code but I cannot see here or on the Firedfox website to see a code to copy or scan.

I have Microsoft authenticator android app but cannot see how to add my firefox account.

it works fine with my outlook email accounts and I can also access a whats app login via Whatsappweb - nothing to do with the Microsoft Authenticator - so I am not too stupid to do somethings.

the answers so far provided do not seem to resonate with someone as stupid as me.

I am fed up with getting prompts from Firefox that I have no way of resolving and soon I think I will have to move to a different web browser after over 15 years with Firefox.

You can disable 2FA and then re-enable 2FA on the Firefox Account Settings page. That you give you a pop-up with a QR code the you can scan with a mobile device. Also make sure to save the recovery codes safely.

I don't know whether Firefox works with the MS authenticator app, so you would have to check this by letting it scan the QR code.

Sorry - I cannot have explained how stupid I am -

I have no idea what 2FA means - but thanks for trying.

I have a hidden neurological disability and despite an IQ once measured about 135 - if my memory is correct - I am in many ways stupid.

You posted a screenshot to enter a 6-digit security code. If the need to enter this code then this means that you have two factor authentication (2FA) enabled on your Firefox Account.

Ah - so that is the problem - I have enabled 2 factor authentication and then forgotten about it.

Thanks I will explore that another time.

I have tried again - I do not know what the Firefox account panel is - I cannot see where to "manage accounts" so cannot even get to point one.

Can I please just be given a link to unset my two stage login, please?

I have spent about half an hour to get here today - resetting passwords and getting muddled witha sumo account or something else - but now I am back to where I gave up in frustration weeks ago - when I read the instructions - I do not get very far before something that seems basic - click manage account - is completely impossible.

That panel in now named Sync, you can find it as the last choice in your above posted screenshot of the Options/Preferences page.
