Greetings. I have been reading about this but i can't find an answer specific to my question. I want to change my Firefox account password, not because i forgot it, just because i want a better one. Online you can read that if you reset the password (without the recovery keys), all data will be lost, but i don't want to reset it. I have access to my settings page and there is no warning in the "Change Password" option saying that if you change it, data will be lost. Also, in this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-your-firefox-accounts-password it says "We recommend changing your password periodically". So, is it safe to change the password if you know the current one and have access to the settings page? Is the "Data will be lost" warning only for when the password is forgotten and needs to be reset? Thanks

I have tried substituting logins.jason and key4.db in mac library from old firefox saved file in my library folder, which used to work. Doesn't now. I am now using Lockwise. I logged in, sync was turned off, I turned it on, and hit sync, on same mac device, it cycles but still no old passwords showing on sites on my Mac. It's like all old profiles have been lost. Help!

I am trying to sign in and sync my account to my new computer, but firefox is NOT sending the 6-digit verification code to my email from my new computer. I have been trying for hours.
It is not a problem with my email. I logged out of Firefox and back in from my old laptop and it sent the verification code to my email for my laptop within seconds. No problem. But it just won't send it from the desktop. (the code from the laptop doesn't work on the desktop, tried that to)
This is very frustrating and ruining the new computer experience.

All info (password, historic, favorites, everything) stored on a new sync account was lost.
Before the problem :
I made the new account, syncronized it with my current cookies, once saved i formated the pc. THen logged and did a syncronization on the new distro's firefox, and everything (cookies) was loaded perfectly. That was months ago. The account remained logged this whole time.
( account maded on ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04, and logged on lubuntu 19.04)
Now i re-made this whole process (formating the pc and loggin on this same sync) , but this time there was no data at all. Was like a new account. Maybe even worse, because a new account should have at least one historic page. But this account's historic was totally erased. Even if the account was not syncronizing and saving my cookies after i've logged on the new distro, it did saved the cookies from the old distro, so at least these cookies should be there.
(account loaded on lubuntu 19.10)
After the problem :
After the loss of its data, the blank sync account have beeing sucefully sycronizing (loading and saving) new cookies, but never the old ones.
What i tried :
Re-syncronized. Re-logged on other devices (android and linux). re-installed firefox. Redifined the password.
Why its unlikly i made a mistake :
I'm a old user of firefox sync (in other accounts) on a live-linux distro, so i'm constantly loggin into my other Sync account and syncronizing my data. And never i had a problem were i losed my saved historic/favorites/passwords. Anything. So is very unlikely that i made a mistake ... I even have old confirmation emails, proving the account was created on a device, and then logged on a new device, wich required a confirmation password.
My conclusion : A sync Account was created, cookies were saved into it, then they were deleted and the browser stopped saving new cookies on the account. I didn't realized because the cookies were alredy stored on my local drive. When i made a new logging, the browser started to save cookies again, and those weren't remains, because they weren't deleted.
Could it be that firefox's servers had a malfunction and my data were lost ? Nothing else make sense to me now.
Thanks for your help.
