Due to a Windows 11 system restore, I had to reinstall Firefox. After signing in I found that all bookmarks, extensions and passwords have gone and the original 2020 profile they were attached to seems to be missing as well. I initially installed the Firefox app from the windows store and thought that might have been the problem, so uninstalled it and reinstalled from the mozilla website. That didn't heelp so I went through all the help articles I could find and I still can't figure out how to restore anything.

I recently logged out of Firefox and cannot log back in because the process requires an authenticator app, which I have no clue which would work. I have MS Authenticator and Google Authenticator but neither of them bring up any codes sent from Firefox. What on earth can I do? Delete my account and then create a new account with that same email again? However, I can't do that, because I can't login! I'm presently login with another email address, which is how I am posting on this forum. Thanks for your help.

I had several dozen tabs open, as well as bookmarks saved that were on my account while I was using Windows 11. I didn't even think to export the bookmarks and other information, as I figured sync would handle that. Unfortunately, none of my settings have been saved. Is there a way to fix this? I had many extensions, bookmarks, and tabs I'd like to recover.

The original email address identifier I used to get into Firefox sync was discontinued by my provider and I could no longer get or send email from that account.

The new email account is a modification of the old one and now conforms with my provider’s new identifier.

Of course this change made it impossible to get into my Firefox account and to use Firefox Sync.

My old email address, which is no longer functional, is tied to the account and I can’t get into the account to change the settings and replace the email address. Nor can I delete the account.

I tried to get into the account by switching to my google email address but the same problem arose each time. I am denied entry because the Google Authentication Code which I get on my phone and enter on my browser is always flagged as INVALID. This has happened so often that I am seriously considering changing from Firefox to a different browser.

My old Firefox recovery keys no longer work either. Presumably they are tied to the old email address and password.

I support Mozilla and it’s philosophy of open source, but this is driving me to desperation.

All I want to do is sync my two computer browsers with each other so I can work better. To do that I need to get back into my account.

I'm the tech director (tech janitor) for a public school that is using Securly.com for their Internet filter. Securly requires installing their own certificate so they can be a man-in-the-middle. I've installed that cert into Firefox and that works fine. However, even with that cert installed, Sync doesn't work when I'm behind that filter. As soon as I take one of my computers off the school network, everything will sync up. I don't get any errors that sync is failing, it's just not working. Any ideas on how I can fix that issue?

Thanks!

So I reformatted my computer today, but the process allowed me to keep all my personal files. I had made a backup in my appdata for all my passwords and bookmarks like Firefox allows when you're in Manage Passwords or Manage Bookmarks. After the formatting, I sign into my Firefox account, and it Syncs almost immediately. When I go into my appdata, the profile has been overwritten by the new sync, meaning all my passwords and bookmarks are now no longer available. Is there legitimately anything I can do??

I switched laptops in August of 2023 roughly 60 days ago. I successfully synced and transferred all bookmarks and passwords at that time. Today I needed to switch laptops again and gave my old laptop to our tech to wipe Win11 off of and revert to Win10. I was not concerned with my synced data as I had just synced in August. Upon logging in to firefox.... there is almost no synced data. Is there anyways to access the August data?

Hey all,

I have 4 devices connected to Firefox Sync.

  1. Mac deskop
  2. Mac laptop
  3. iPhone
  4. iPad

It appears that the sync will sync extensions between the deskop and laptop ok, but not tabs. Both computers can see synced tabs from the mobile devices but not from each other.

I have logged out and in, turned on sync and off and on again, changed device names just to see if that refreshed things, removed them from the logged in list to kick them out and then logged in again, changed the tick boxes for sync items and yet tabs will not sync.

When I look under History > Synced Tabs I see the two mobile devices and their tabs but I don't even see the other Mac listed, let alone its tabs.

Help appreciated.
