I recently made an account for Firefox so I could use Sync. Whenever I press the three lines at the top left corner it displays my email, for whatever reason. I share my screen often and I wouldn't want to accidentally leak my email and/or any other sensitive information.

Is it possible to make Firefox display my username instead of my email, or make it go away completely without losing functionality? Thanks in advance!

Okay, so I decided to sync my Firefox from my laptop with my work computer. I wasn't thinking about it also making all my passwords available on my work computer, which I do not want. I thought just signing out and using the browser 'un synced' would mean the passwords weren't available, but nope. While signed out, if click into passwords I can still see them all. So my question: If I delete the passwords from here (signed out) on my work computer, will it also delete them from my laptop browser (that is signed in)?

Hello

I do not understand how firefox sync is supposed to work. I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is FF 85 on Linux Mint (I cannot get a later version due to some querk) The laptop is 99 on Windows 10 Both are signed in to sync but my bookmarks were scrambled so I signed out the laptop and cleared the profile, cleaned up the bookmarks in the desktop and to be safe I tried just syncing the tabs, not the bookmarks, by opening the fresh firefox on the laptop and signing in again. In the sidebar under my account icon I clicked "Synchronise now" and the open tabs from my desktop appeared in a list underneath, jumbled up. (I have 2 separate windows open on the desktop with different tabs in each, but this separation was not followed either, there didn’t seem to be any provision for syncing tabs in two separate windows)

But the row of tabs didn’t open, all I can do is open them one by one from the list on the right, this is a slow process as every time I click on a tab in the list the new page opens in the same single tab, not a new one, but the sidebar closes again.

Is this what’s supposed to happen? I was expecting the synced row of tabs to open automatically.

This feature would have been useful as my OS on the desktop, (Linux Mint) tends to crash and to have the on the laptop would be a good backup.

Incidentally the other way I try to back up the lost tabs is to select them all and bookmark them to a new folder which I call “backup” but it seems this doesn’t necessarily duplicate them, which I would prefer, so any of the open tabs that were previously bookmarked risk being removed from the original bookmarked folder, without my noticing, and I am therefore reluctant to delete the backup folder without checking that it doesn’t contain the only bookmark of a page.

When I came back to syncing the bookmarks, how do I avoid them getting scrambled again?

Take a look at the screenshots. The second device is called "Firefox on HUAWEI LIO-L29", but I renamed it to "Mate 30 Pro" (screenshot 2).

Why is the device name displayed not "Mate 30 Pro", as in the case of "Macbook D14"? I renamed the device in Firefox settings a few days ago.

I forgot my password, went straight to recover it, did not read the message and all my data is now erased. I know I should've read it but god damn if the action deletes ALL of your information do a double confirm with some red popup...

So is there a way to recover it somehow? Download and try my old passwords on it or something else?

Hello,

I had to return my laptop to factory settings and am now re-customising it. I reinstalled Firefox and tried to sync my bookmarks but the sync went the wrong way: it wiped out my phone bookmarks rather than bringing them over to my laptop.

I was able to restore my bookmarks by exporting them from my desktop computer (on which syncing was turned off) but this wasn't perfect re folders etc, and I've done a lot of manual tidying up. Now there's inevitably a slight divergence.

I would like to reactivate syncing but am worried that the same thing will happen again. How can I sync in a way that transfers all my bookmarks and folders etc from my desktop computer to other devices, rather than in the other direction. (Perhaps it's a question of what order I reconnect my devices in?)

Many thanks!

Hello, I am French but I try to write in English... When I launch Firefox, I know it will ask for my main password. This is what I need, me for I activated "Sync" (to synchronize my profile on PC and Android). My problem is not "how to prevent Firefox to ask for my main password" (many people ask for that on the net). It is "how to prevent Firefox to wait about 30 seconds before asking for my main password".

I did read only one thread about the trouble I encounter each time I launch Firefox but I gess many people experiment the same thing. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1312988 (you can see the source is a very good one :-) ) I entirely agree with the author, who wrote :

"The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work."

So, you launch Firefox, you look for one of your bookmarks to click on it but then, Firefox stops your action and a window asks your password. Worse : you are typing words in the adress bar and after some seconds you discover that you were typing the last words in the password pop-up window. Awfull ! You can then 1/ grumble and type your password 2/ grumble an press the Escape key

I use sometimes Seamonkey, that asks for the main password within the second you click its shortcut on Windows desktop. An excellent solution ! But after that, I notice that Seamonkey does not have a Sync function (and Firefox asks for the main password 20 or 30 seconds after opening only if Sync is activated).

To sum up, it would be great if Mozilla / Sync could remove the delay before asking for the main password, even if it has to ask for it right after clicking on the desktop shortcut. Thanks for any advice, Michel

I see instructions for sync' to a phone, how do I initially (connect) sync to my desktop from my laptop?

When I sync my bookmarks, how does is know which computer is the primary (the one that I want to duplicate changes from)?

For example, I added new bookmarks and revised some old ones on my laptop and did not have the sync on my desktop at the same time. Now, if I sync my laptop to my desktop, how does it know which device is my primary (in this case my laptop) where I made all the changes?

My goal is to revise all the bookmarks currently on my desktop to reflect all the changes I made to them on my laptop. I'd like to do it without duplicates or displaying old desktop residual bookmarks that I deleted and/or modified on the laptop prior to sync to the desktop.

In this case, should I delete my bookmarks from my desktop and then sync to my laptop so as to seamlessly & efficiently have my bookmarks toolbar on the laptop look the same on the desktop?

Thank you for your help here! Christopher
