Hey everyone.

I decided to make a fresh windows install, and when i installed firefox as allways i logged in.

Normally when i have logged in on a fresh installation of firefox it startes with the sync and getting all my old booksmarks, add-ons, passwords etc. but this time i didn't.

I thought that was weird but didn't pay mind to it, i thought i might have needed some time to sync. After 4 hours nothing has happended yet.

things i have tried:

  • Pressing Sync now under my profile
  • Pressing sync now under settings
  • Going to help - more techinical information - Databasen Places - Confirm integrety

The result was:

Is there a way in Firefox to have quicker access to saved logins than through the menu structure? The menus are four layers deep, which is frustrating as it is difficult to remember the route when only using the feature occasionally. Some websites don't respect the Firefox Password Manager, so it sometimes becomes necessary to manually find the credentials.

Is there any way to create a bookmark to the saved login section?

Is there perhaps an add-on?

Thanks for any answers.

My Firefox updated automatically, unfortunately before exploring the updated version I as I usually do, deleted the Old Firefox Data Folder that I automatically created when the FF updates. Now when I saw I lost all of my saved password bookmarks etc. I had more than 400 saved password :/ Its breaking my mind, What should I do. I used to delete the Old Firefox Data folder but happily nothing happened until now, How should I get back my previous data. ? I had very important passwords saved in that history. Even though I turned on the firefox sync but I didn't found any password still. Any help will be highly appreciated.

and then I have to start again using my account for synch which a mobile phone (there I never have problems). But why is it resetting by itselves now last time yesterday, first after weeks and then shorter and shorter. I am a great fan of Firefox already using it for 18 years now but this is anoying as I not always has that mobile close to me and therefore all history/accounts are temporarily gone.

Hello!

While I do have 97 tabs open in Firefox on my iPhone, NONE of them appear in my 'Synced Tabs' Sidebar in Firefox on my macbook pro.

To allay the immediate and obvious questions: + Yes, I'm running the most up-to-date version of Firefox on my mac (76.0.1) and on my iPhone (version 25 with no additional update available on the App Store) + Yes, I am signed-in on both devices. + Yes, I am signed-in to the SAME account on both devices. + Most surprisingly: YES AND YES, I can SEND a specific TAB from the mac to the iPhone as well as SEND A--ie ONE at a time--TAB from the iPhone to the Mac. Whaaaaaat... why??

(a quick PS: the all-caps words are all-caps-ed for emphasis on how unbelievable this is--I'm far more surprised than I am angry; I have faith in the Firefox community being able to solve this)

To reiterate, despite the situation described above, ZERO tabs appear in the list of Synced Tabs! There is a (fairly meta) screenshot attached below which shows the empty Synced Tabs Sidebar.

THINGS I have ALREADY tried: 1) I have tried signing out and signing back in on the Mac. 2) I have tried pressing/running a 'sync' on both devices. 3) I have searched for archived help files and found one suggesting I look for a "userChrome.css" file in the profile folder buried in the hidden view of my ~/library--I did this and found no such file. 4) I tried signing out and clicking on the 'sign-in to sync tabs' button IN THE Synced Tabs Sidebar ITSELF; I was able to login but... no change. 5) I tried RENAMING BOTH devices. The renaming synced on both sides, but THE TABS ARE STILL MISSING.  :/

I've run out of immediate ideas... I turn to you, here, for help. Please help.

Cheers, MitzvahGuy

I don't care at all about any of the sync data that is in the account tied to that email, is there really no way to have the account deleted so I can reuse that email address?

Is there any way to prevent that?

Happened once a while back but happened again today. Firefox Sync asked me to reconnect, which I did. After that reconnection, and even if "password" is checked in the parameters, all my passwords have disappeared. I do also have Firefox on my phone, which have all my passwords from before the first instance it occured, but it never synchronized to Firefox on my computer. No error messages appears when synchronizing, and everything seems to be normal. Any way to correct the non-synchronization of passwords ? Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Thanks.
