Is this how it is supposed to work? I expected to just see the tab appear.

I am really having trouble getting my bookmarks from the Macbook to my IMac. I've tried to follow the "Help" instructions without success. I have years of bookmarks meticulously organized on the MacBook. The MacBook is usually at a location 15 miles away. ( I brought it here today, but have been unsuccessful). I am guessing it needs to be "on" during the sync process. I've turned the Synch setting to "on" for both computers.

I have a "few" bookmarks already on the iMac, but I can live with some duplicates and rearranging.

I have two (2) accounts--one for business and a non-biz account. I have made sure to be signed into the non-biz account for both of the computers.

Thanking you in advance for you assistance.

P.S.: 1. Also, I have noticed (not sure where to re-access this "window") That I have a few obsolete devices still registered. Is there a way of deleting them.?

2. and, can I really keep two accounts (biz and non-biz) with different organization?

Today I found that my sync is disabled (it works at least 2~3 months ago)

I click "enable sync" but it just said "working" or something (not sure what exact word it is in English version, the original text is "正在开启同步...")

Then I found a answer at this site said quit and login again might fix the problem

...then I can't login anymore

When click "login" in about:preferences#sync , it jumps to https://accounts.firefox.com/signin?action=email&service=sync

I login to accounts.firefox.com successfully and found the device I'm using (fde 92, check attachment 1)

But the Browser is still not logged in (check attachment 2)

I tried:

  • Reset pref.js & user.js
  • Delete /weave/ folder
  • Disable all addon
  • Delete device in accounts.firefox.com and login again
  • Delete /startupCache/

None of them works

Any help?

Finally used SYNC feature for the first time.

Am attempting to migrate out of FF (used windows system restore to bring back v88 - the 'new and fresh' design is defective, missing features I need and is unworkable for me.)

When I originally set up my FF account, I used a specific email for that - it is NOT the email i use for a majority of my browsing / website logins. (I regularly use about 50 different emails, each for a specific purpose).

After I synced FF and waterfox, I am now missing (about half) of my logins and passwords on BOTH browsers now.

it seems that firefox SYNC depends on using JUST ONE email address - for EVERYTHING?

seriously? Someone actually thought this was OK?

How do I fix this. Please help me sort this out. I seriously have no more patience to keep fixing stupid FF problems.

Thank you.

Hai my name is Z and im hoping to find some help from someone. I was sorta forced to reset my computer after it couldnt auto repair itself. Once it loaded back up and looked over everything that was deleted and everything that it kept and firefox was one, however i did notice that it didnt have the "old firefox data" folder like it has had when ive reset my computer by choice in the past. So i assume my bookmarks, themes, history, and most importantly my saved passwords are gone for good? This makes me not want to use Firefox anymore and i probably wont unless my stuff can be pulled back up because i really needed those passwords and bookmarks.

Hello, I have two laptops, an old one with a synced firefox, and a new one where I want to get all the passwords, tabs, theme, settings and extensions. The OS is the same (NixOS, Linux).

I can successfully log-in and enable sync on the new laptop: it's possible for me to see the list of tabs from the other device, open and sync those tabs, but other things are not synced or synced partially.

For example: of the 30+ passwords on the old device, only 15 are present in the new device; no theme or extension is synced, bookmarks seems to be properly synced.

I don't know where to get more info about the sync (besides the about:sync-log page, which shows no logs), so I can't really tell what's going on. Indeed, nothing changes if I press the "Sync now" button.

I also tried refreshing firefox or creating a new profile from scratch and sync that again, but to no avail. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks

Hi

This is not a bug, just more of a feature request. Every time when I sync an account to a new device, I got a popup to sync another device and afterwards I get a mail on how to complete my sync setup and sync another device. I'd have no problem with it, if this is my first device that I am trying to sync. But I have several devices with the sync enabled, I am syncing from these devices and Mozilla knows this as it has history of devices where I was signed in and it can see that there are data to be synced so apparently this is not the first device you are trying to sync. Can we have an option to dismiss these messages and popups forever?

Thanks

I normally use Firefox Beta. Ever since upgrading to v92 the option to Send Tab to Device has been missing when I right-click on a tab. I've downloaded other versions of Firefox and the issue seems to follow me out of Beta and into the regular release. I've seen other people having issues with syncing and sending tabs between devices as of late, but no one seemed to be completely missing the option to do so.

My laptop just came back from the shop after a hard drive crash and Ive had to reinstall everything. I just reinstalled firefox, signed in and synced but its not got any of my bookmarks, saved passwords/logins, add ons or history. I tried to do the Import and Restore but there is nothing in there. I checked the profiles, there are two, profile:defualt-release and profile:default. Neither have any bookmarks, saved logins etc. I've been using firefox for years and have synced it before and it worked then. I chose firefox specifically so that I could just restore all my stuff in the event of a crash but now I can't find any of it. Is there any other way to get all my saved stuff back? Any advice would be greatly appreiated! thanks.

Hi, i'm using Firefox Sync and therefore FF asks for primary password on every startup. The delay until it asks for the password is annoying. e.g. already typing into my favorite search engine when i look up and see the seach term is typed into the password field because of the delayed, random popup.

I know there's a workaroud to pin Firefox Account site to speed things up, but this is a bad workaround. Why isn't it possible to change FF to ask for the password immediately when Sync is enabled. Can't be this hard.

P.S. Why isn't Chrome asking ever for a password, even if Sync and PW are stored?
