Hi,

I have a large number of bookmarks saved in my PC-based Firefox which I want to be able to access from my new Samsung Galaxy Android mobile.

I created a Firefox account on the PC and installed Firefox on the mobile. I then used Firefox Sync and all the bookmarks did indeed appear on the mobile Firefox, which is great.

As a test, I then added a new bookmark at the PC Firefox end, but this is not appearing in the mobile Firefox. Both the Firefox accounts (same account on PC and mobile) are logged into.

Should new PC Firefox bookmarks appear automatically in the mobile Firefox, or do they have to be 'manually pushed' from the PC?

Thanks,


bern

This issue arrised a few days ago when trying to re-sign into my firefox sync account on my W10 PC. When entering the 2FA number I got the message exactly like in the second attached image: "Your email was just returned" therefore I was unable to sign in.

Attempts to sign in elsewhere were successful and, at the time, I suspected it was an issue with 2FA because I had another issue with signing in to something else and went to firefox to validate that.

Although I can sign in normally now; I am still unable to add 2FA, account recovery, or a secondary email as I still get the same message.

I've lost all bookmarks, logins and saved passwords, add ons and basically everything. I have made sure that all my data is synced and even tested it a couple of times after changing devices and every time it worked perfectly and restored my data. Now, I've just changed devices after a while with no internet, I go to sign in and I forgot my pass so I reset it and signed in successfully but nothing at all is restored not a single thing. I'm devastated, I hope there a solution to this.

How can the 5 minute timeout on sync verification code be increased to 10 minutes in view of delay receiving code by email?

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?

I'm confused on how multiple accounts and sync work. Basically, I want to keep my personal browser usage from going into my work laptop.

I have 3 devices: 1.) Work laptop - always for work 2.) Mobile - always for personal use 3.) Home laptop - always for personal use

To keep my browsing history separate, I plan to use 2 firefox accounts: 1.) Work laptop - always Work firefox account 2.) Mobile - always Personal firefox account 3.) Home laptop - mostly Personal firefox account but occassionally switch to Work firefox account

I assume I can browse my Work browsing history at home by logging with my Work firefox account. But when I sync, will my personal browsing history be synced to my Work account? I don't want that to happen.
