Dear community,

I use Firefox on a Linux laptop and an Android phone.

For the past several months, I have been successfully using the Lockwise app on the Android phone to access passwords synced from my computer. I was not logged in to Firefox proper (the browser) until much more recently. Apparently, I have failed to notice that my passwords never synced to Firefox browser.

I have now reinstalled the OS on my laptop and all my passwords are gone there. They still appear in the Lockwise app, but none of my Firefox browser installs (which I all added to Firefox Sync much more recently than Lockwise) can access them. Essentially, it is as if they are only stored on my phone, anymore.

How can I get them back to the browser?

Kind regards, fNek

I have alot of open tabs on mobile phone and want to view - and then delete - each of the tabs on my desktop because it's massively slowing down my mobile. I am able to open on my desktop the synced tabs - although I can only open them either one-by-one, or the entire lot of 1,000 of them - but cannot seem to delete singular ones or a few tabs at a time when are no longer needed. Is there a way to delete a synced tab individually from a connected device that's NOT the device where the tab is currently open/ originally saved? Thanks!

I love the tab feature that lest me "Send to other device". It is my favorite method to view tabs in my Android devices and send the good ones to my desktop for organizing as bookmarks that I can later view on all of my devices.

Recently - probably after a Firefox update - the mechanism broke as follows:

- Instead of seeing my desktop listed once when I try to Send to other device, I see it listed twice. - When I click on the top listing, the tab does not get sent - it is a dud. - When I click on the bottom listing, the tab gets sent fine (even if a bit slow). - The behavior is identical no matter which Android device I use (I tested with a phone and a tablet), only the bottom instance of the desktop results on sending the tab.

Is this a known bug? (in other words, the devs know about it and plan to fix it)

Is there a workaround to remove the dead (top) instance? (until the devs get around to fixing it automatically in an upcoming patch)

Thanks.

Hi,

I wanted to add one of my email address, let's call it A, as a secondary address for my firefox account, B. However, it tells me that the address has already been verified by another user.

I checked, I did have another firefox account (since gmail, accepts "." in the name, I created by accident two accounts...B&C), but address A is not visible in either B or C.

If I try to connect with A, I don't have password which match. If I ask to reset the password, it asks for the primary address...which is not B or C! At that point I'm running out of email address that could have been used ^^ There is no address D.

I have deleted the account C just to be sure.

How can I identify where address A has been used? How to use address A as a primary/secundary address ?

For about the last 5 hours, when I download Firefox, nothing syncs after I log in -- no add-ons, no bookmarks, no history. I've seen no mention of this on the support page.

I first noticed this about 3 pm Sunday, EDT.

Is no one else experiencing this?

On the device with the problem no password or fingerprint is asked from me, on tap the menu is highlighted and that is all, i can not acces it. Any ideas?

How do I safely delete synced Add-Ons without syncing to new profile?

I recently newly configured a laptop and while doing so, installed an updated version of FF (v 79).

I realized that some of my old Add-ons from my backed up FF profile (last used with FF v. 68) were interfering with the new FF installation, so by toggling off sync of Add-ons using about:config (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox ), I was able to open the newly installed FF and successfully use it with my backed up profile without introducing the older synced Add-ons.

The problem: So currently, in my newly restored, working FF profile, I have Add-Ons unchecked in syncing, to ensure that the Add-Ons from my previous FF incarnation would not conflict with this new install.

However, I am concerned that at some future point I might forget why I had disabled Add-ons in sync, and that if I check it and do a sync, it might re-introduce the old Add-ons.

So what I want to do now is to delete all the old Add-ons (essentially from the Sync server) . . . if they are still there -- so that if I want to check Add-ons to be synced with my new FF installation, it won't re-introduce those incompatible older add-ons.

What is the safest way to do this?

Would it work if I did the following?

- Open FF (my current working restored profile) -- but open it in Safe Mode. - check Add-ons in sync - allow sync - if the Add-ons show up, delete them
