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?

I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

Many thanks, bd89

I am going to travel and I want to wipe all my devices, then get to my destination and then reinstall firefox on my devices again and sync.

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

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

Am I correct in thinking that Firefox sync ensures that an entry in say the Bookmarks folder is copied to all machines on my account. This implies that if I delete a bookmark on Machine A synch will find it on Machine B and replace it on Machine A. How then am I to delete unwanted entries other than by closing synch and deleting separately on each machine? Is there a facility for making one machine the master so that the remaining machines duplicate the master?

When I log in to the account of the Firefox browser to synchronize my settings, I find that there may be two different bookmark bars and extension settings. This phenomenon mainly occurs when I use the native browser of Ubuntu and connect to the Internet But the browser I downloaded from firefox china works most of the time Is there any way to eliminate this phenomenon? Perhaps specify an update and synchronization server?

After restarting my PC, out of the blue Firefox had signed me out, removed my bookmarks and history, etc. Luckily i have all this backed up onto my account and can see all the bookmarks and the like through Android Firefox, however whenever i sign in on my desktop to resync everything up it doesnt work and keeps requesting i sign in, which upon clicking just takes me to my signed in account. Ive restarted Firefox, Restarted my PC, cleared cache and cookies and even reinstalled firefox but the issue seems to persist.

My current phone is about two years old and I've decided I ought to back up the history of useful links I've viewed in Firefox on that device.

Unfortunately the way i've kept track of stuff on my phone is by just never closing any useful tabs. (And of course because i don't always remember to close things when I'm done with them there are a lot of non-useful tabs mixed in as well.)

I have successfully created a Firefox account, signed in on both my phone and PC, and synced the two. The list of tabs shows up in the Synced Tabs sidebar in Firefox on PC.

However I'd like to save the pages to a more persistent format, presumably some kind of html list. The "normal" way to do this would be to open them in the PC browser, bookmark them all, and export the bookmarks.

However if i try so select "Open All in Tabs" i get this warning:

"You are about to open 1492 tabs. This might slow down Firefox while the pages are loading. Are you sure you want to continue?"

I fear for the life of my computer if i try to open 1.5 thousand tabs all at the same time. Is there some way to export the list of synced tabs without opening them all first?

A several year old page i found mentioned an "about:sync" page with a "Record Editor", but that doesn't seem to exist anymore. (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50829318/export-synced-tabs-in-firefox)

If there's no way to export the Synced Tabs list in the UI, is the list saved somewhere in the profile folder in readable format?

Thanks!

I recently (19th of May) had to reinstall Linux. I thought I had everything backed up, but apparently I forgot to backup my Firefox profile.

I'd lost a few years of bookmarks and my current session, but c'est la vie, back up better next time. I *did* have Firefox Sync, but after checking the support forums saying Sync is not a backup tool, I'd lost hope.

I *did* have an older device, so I booted that up to get up to about 18 months ago. But when I did so, I was able to get history and bookmarks up to the 14th of April (this year), despite not booting that device since long before then.

I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth, but where did this come from, and could the other 4 weeks be hiding there?
