Bookmarks not syncing: Skipping check of bookmarks - disabled via preferences

Hi - I'm signed into firefox sync on two different computers, both running Ubuntu 20.04. I can tell that they're connected to the same account because I can see the other computer in the list for "Send tab to device".

However, the bookmarks aren't syncing - one computer has the full set, the other (newly set up) computer still has the default bookmarks.

When I check `about:sync-log`, I see these lines:

``` 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of prefs - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of passwords - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of tabs - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of bookmarks - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of addons - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of forms - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of history - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of extension-storage - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping validation: no engines qualify 1654551773179 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.sync: success.sync => success.sync 1654551773179 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.service: success.status_ok => success.status_ok 1654551773180 Sync.Synchronizer INFO Sync completed at 2022-06-06 14:42:53 after 1.48 secs. ```

That is, it seems to think that bookmark syncing is disabled - however, I have bookmark syncing enabled, as you can see in the attached screenshot.

I've been locked out of Sync. Found recovery codes, but they don't work. Is there any way to gain access?

Hello,

Yesterday I got signed out of my Firefox Sync and when I tried logging in, I realized I don't have Firefox in my authenticator app any longer. I have found Firefox recovery codes, which were issued in 2019 when I enabled 2FA, however when I try using them I get "Recovery code not found."

Can these recovery codes be used to prove my account ownership, even if I somehow generated new codes after 2019 but didn't save them (which I doubt, but it's not impossible) ?

I am not logged in on any other device so I cannot disable the 2FA that way. Is there any hope?

My firefox-syncstroage.toml looks like this

  1. Example MySQL DSN:

database_url = "mysql://firefox:XXX@localhost/syncstorage_rs"

  1. Example Spanner DSN:
  2. database_url="spanner://projects/SAMPLE_GCP_PROJECT/instances/SAMPLE_SPANNER_INSTANCE/databases/SAMPLE_SPANNER_DB"

"limits.max_total_records"=1666 # See issues #298/#333 master_secret = "TOKEN"

  1. removing this line will default to moz_json formatted logs (which is preferred for production envs)

human_logs = 1

  1. enable quota limits

enable_quota = 0

  1. set the quota limit to 2GB.
  2. max_quota_limit = 200000000
  1. Example Tokenserver settings:

disable_syncstorage = false tokenserver.database_url = "mysql://firefox:XXX@localhost/syncstorage_rs" tokenserver.enabled = true tokenserver.fxa_email_domain = "api.accounts.firefox.com" tokenserver.fxa_oauth_server_url = "https://oauth.accounts.firefox.com/v1" tokenserver.fxa_metrics_hash_secret = "TOKEN" tokenserver.test_mode_enabled = false

Hi. I know my firefox account email: [email]@gmail.com and firefox account password: won't type it here, but i know it and have entered it successfully.

After i sign in, with the correct email and password, it states i need to access the verification code and enter it to use my firefox account. the problem is that i just reinstalled windows and the gmail password was autogenerated and stored within my firefox account. so in order for me to access my gmail to retrieve the verification code i need to access the passwords stored on my firefox account.

I have a number of autogenerated passwords related to my college assessments that are time sensitive. I need help with this urgently!

Hello Everyone,

I am not sure what has happened but I had tons of passwords saved in my Mozilla browser. I have been using this since 2019 or 2020 and saved all of my passwords there. What happened is I was using my laptop and wasn't aware that the charger is not plugged in. While working my device turned off because of no battery. I connected the charger and restarted my device like normal. After I opened my browser(Mozilla Firefox) and ctrl+shift+t to open all the recently closed tabs, I was amazed to see that it restored many old sites like 1.5 month old websites instead of the one's which I was using. However, the recently closed one's were showing in the history. I opened the tabs from history that I needed and started using it normal. I have using Mozilla Firefox for good 2 years I never felt the need to remember any of my passwords. Everytime I have to create an account on any of the sites I just create a password once, at the time of sign up only and then click on SAVE PASSWORD so I don't have to remember it. I am guessing this is the normal practice that everyone does or may be a cast majority. I was doing my routine work, I tried to login to my account using the same way like you put in your email in the email section and then click on password section and select the user/email you want to use a password for and sign in. BUT TODAY WHEN I FOLLOWED THE SAME PROCEDURE, IT DOESN'T SHOW ME ANY SAVED PASSWORD WHICH WAS QUITE SURPRISING TO ME. I OPENED THE PASSWORD MENU FROM THE TOP RIGHT AND I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE THAT THERE WE ZERO, LITERALLY ZERO SAVED PASSWORDS. I REALLY NEED HELP WITH THIS BECAUSE THOSE WERE SO MANY PASSWORDS LIKE SERIOUSLY SO MANY.

THANK YOU, AMIR
