Hey, I have a problem with addons and Firefox Sync

On my computer I have 3 addons installed, but I dont need them there because they are useless on this system. But on my Linux Laptop I need these 3 addons to be enabled. Both Profiles are using Firefox Sync to keep the same data. That means if I disable/enable them on one of the devices it affect the other one.

Is there any way to prevent that?

Thanks in advance

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

So I tried to update my email address on my account and it says I already have an account with that email. I tried to log into that account but it apparently had 2FA in place that I cannot recover. 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?

I have been using Comodo's Ice Dragon for many years but, as all development stopped after Firefox v65, I now wish to go back to Firefox, however I need all my open tabs from Ice Dragon in this current version of Firefox v76. Both browsers are synced and indeed CID's tabs do appear in my Synced tabs menu but I prefer to have them on the top as open tabs. Is there a way to do that other than by opening them one at a time please?

To make a long story short, I created This Firefox account to get support creating another Firefox account... After trying to set up "sync" on my laptop (where I normally browse using Firefox – I am writing this from the desktop that I wanted to get synced) I got an error message with the heading: "Cannot create account", followed by the text: "You must meet certain age requirements to create a Firefox Account." This is strange, since I am 19 years old (I suspect that I entered the wrong nubmer). I really want to get my laptop and its profiles synced, since much work has been put into browser-personalization. How do I fix this problem?

I have my plugins synced through Firefox Sync. For development I'm using Firefox Developer Edition (FDE).

There are times I do not want to have all plugins en-/disabled in all browser. e.g. I don't need a form filler plugin all the time in my regular FF instance. But I mostly need it all day in the FDE instance.

Problem starts by disabling a plugin in the regular FF instance. Because this disables the plugin through sync in all other instances.

I'm looking for s possibility to disable plugins "locally". So only disable it for the currently running FF instance, and not propagate the state through sync.

A separate "DEV profile" might help, but I don't want to deal with sep. profiles, as the tabs would be synced in this different profile for example.

I can imagine that this is kind of an edge case scenario. But maybe somebody knows a way around this.
