Creating separate Firefox profiles on different user accounts

Hello,

I am wondering it this is possible - I have a Windows 10 laptop that needs to be upgraded to V202H and I am told that the upgrade will probably delete all of my current programs and settings - including my Firefox install and all bookmarks. To help recover from that, I wanted to know if it would be possible to set up an alternate Firefox in a not often used local account on my Windows 7 laptop and then sync the two so that after the upgrade, I can download Firefox again onto the Win 10 laptop and then sync it back so that I can get all of my bookmarks and settings for FF back onto the Win 10 laptop.

I don't want to sync it with the Firefox that I use in my regular Win 7 user account since that has a separate set of bookmarks and settings that I wouldn't want to change. I just wanted a way to "hold" all of the Win 10 Firefox stuff and "reinstall" it, and had thought that sync might be a way to do that.

If that won't work, is there a way to transfer the entire FF profile over to a new install on that laptop once it is upgraded?

Thanks for any help! Much appreciated!

When I send tabs from my laptop to my phone, it always says "Tab from [other name]'s Firefox on LAPTOP", and I would like to change this name but I cannot figure out how to, as my Firefox shows my actual name.

Until about a week ago sync worked fine to my knowledge and I could look at saved logins on my Note 8 which were sync'd with my W10 desktop. Now FF sync on Note 8 will NOT update and show me saved logins and passwords, pressing the button does NOTHING. It doesn't even open a new page, absolutely nothing. My bookmarks will sync with desktop but NOT passwords/logins.

It is weird because when I go to a website and login, my Note8 does show suggested logins like it always has but in FF you cannot look at saved logins any longer?

Also noticed that under Note 8 accounts and backup, FF is NOT even listed as an account and I thought it used to be listed there.

I know that when I changed FF pw on my Note 8 it deleted the password/logins. But seeing as how they are still showing up on my desktop, obviously they are still saved in FF

I would like to be able to choose where Sync stores my information. Because it might contain sensitive personal information, people should want to have control over where exactly the data is stored. Right now it seems to be stored in some magical cloud service somewhere in the universe.

So for example, I might want to store it as a file on my GDrive, or as a digest in my Github account, or upload a file to my own server somehow.

For personal information storage, it is absolutely vital that it doesn't go to place where I don't want it to be, and a place that I have a reasonable level of control over.

So, million dollar question: how can I set this up?

I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.

Up to some days ago I had the extremely handy option to look up a stored password in sync, by clicking on the firefox account button in the toolbar. In the menu that opened there was an option to view (add? manage?) stored accounts and passwords. Two clicks and that was it.

Today I tried to do the same thing, but instead of the usual menu options I was greeted with 5-6 options relating to the firefox account, and a zillion of my synced bookmarked pages from other devices. Where has the ultra-used (perhaps the single most used button on my browser, besides the back/forward ones and ctrl+h to open history) option of opening Lockwise gone to?

Please God, don't let this one be a "usability" improvement...

I cannot find any mention of how private the information is that sync saves on the Mozilla computers. These data would seem to be gold to a data miner.

You should publish a Privacy statement regarding off-site Sync data and under what conditions it would be released to anyone for any purpose. How soon will it be "shared" with third-party "partners" in order to enhance my "online experience"?

Your current Sync information is totally silent on this question.

How should I import my stored bookmarks on www.xmarks.com to "FIREFOX SYNC" add-on? I could not find any option to import it in TOOLS -> SYNC -> PREFERENCES. Neither it's mentioned on xmarks.

Or probably it gets synchronized automatically?

Hi, I just transferred over from xmarks at their suggestion. I have a few questions about how the sync works. I have two computers and an iphone that I'd like on my network. As far as I can understand, I set up three device names under one username. However, does this mean that when I merge my files from home with my files from work, the next time I sync my work computer it will have all my bookmarks from home as well? And will both my work and home bookmarks bog down my iphone? What about sharing bookmarks across computers? If I find a bookmark while at work that I'd like to move to the home computer, can I do that? Alternatively, are all the bookmarks kept seperate from each other, each sync registered under the device name, and the bookmarks never see each other? How would I move SOME of my bookmarks onto the iphone or another device? In otherwords, is there a way that I can control which bookmarks, passwords, etc are passed and merged on seperate computers? How would I do that? Thank you very much for taking the time to read my query. Hope to hear from you soon and learn more about how this program works!
