Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help with this. I recently signed into a shared computer with my personal Firefox account, and it automatically imported all my history, my browser extensions, and bookmarks, including personal/secure information that I wouldn't want on a shared computer. I tried signing out and deleting the sites and login information, even going so far as to completely delete all of my browsing history and cookies and signing in with another account, but all the supposedly deleted history and logins and extensions were then transferred to this second account. I have deleted all my data, even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and all the data from my personal account keeps haunting me as suggestions when I type in the task bar or suggested usernames when I log in to websites. How can I actually delete this information so it's not on a shared computer? Thank you!

Hi, when I had cleaned out all my bookmarjks duplicates (and they were many 50.000 accumulated through the years)on my Linuxmachine and turned on my Windows 10 machine they were all back. So my question is: what data is saved when syncing with Firefox sync? And I dont mean the different types you can choose between ,no I mean: when I change one thing on onea logged in firefox on one machine doesnt that change the status of, and in my example the bookmarks on the other machines? Or is it the other way around, namely: will the second machine with all the duplicate bookmarks change the sync-"base" so they will be back on all other machines again? Very confusing especially if youre logged into moire machine then one at the same time. Please answer me, I really need to clean up my firefox's accumulated duplicates pretty quick. Sincerely Wal

Hi team, have reviewed few thread on Sync issue, but none was explicitly touching the issue I have. Running latest version on different PCs ( both Win10), using same account, I can't "send to" tabs among them. They are simply not in mutual device list. No problem to see mobile (Android here) devices in same account.

So, is this a recognized issue on PC with same account? I may just guest about HTTP "user-agent", same "display name" in Sync account and similar stuff in possible conflict, but better leave this on IT pros.


General issue is with speed of sync. If I open a tab, sync the device, then send to other device, sync that other too... and it's not instant there, even not after minutes. What could this be?

Though two questions, I thank for every reactions to them. BR Peter

Hello, I just bought a new laptop, and am trying to sync my firefox account.

The new laptop wouldn't accept my password. So I changed it to a new one.

It doesn't accept the new password either. And now it seems like firefox isn't allowing me to logout of my account either. What is going on with the passwords? I can't afford to reset everything and lose all of my data and log ins. They have been generated by firefox and are all randomly alfanumeric.

What am I to do?

The Send Tab/Link to Device feature only works in one direction, from iOS to MacOS. iOS to iOS never receives, although the popup says it sent. I'm using Firefox 98 on MacOS and iOS. I have a Windows 10 PC which can't receive or send tabs/links as well but I'll limit it to the Apple devices for the moment.

Sync and notifications are enabled on Laptop, iPhone, and iPad. I've de-synced and re-synced each device separately and together. I've attempted to send between each device separately and all together.

Neither iOS device can receive tabs/links from one another, nor send to each other. Laptop can receive tabs/links from both iPhone and iPad, but not send to either.

Each time I re-sync an iOS device I get a notification on the Laptop saying that "this computer is now connected with Firefox iOS". But still nothing works.

I'm self hosting a firefox sync server on unraid. If I set it up on the local network, it works. I use this public address in the docker container http://localhost:5000 and the about:config server as identity.sync.tokenserver.uri = http://localhost:5000/token/1.0/sync/1.5.

Now if I switch to my reverse proxy, I use this public address in the docker container http://firefox.mydomain.com and the about:config server as identity.sync.tokenserver.uri = http://firefox.mydomain.com:5000/token/1.0/sync/1.5. It does not sync. I get an error if I use that url in the browser link. If I make it http://firefox.mydomain.com/token/1.0/sync/1.5 (taking out the port number), my browser displays a json page. But if I remove the port number in the about:config and make it identity.sync.tokenserver.uri = http://firefox.mydomain.com/token/1.0/sync/1.5, it logs me out of the firefox account.

The reverse proxy is passing port 5000 through, so that is why not specifying it returns a valid browser page. The about:config seems to need the port specified to work. Otherwise I'm getting logged off. Is there a workaround to this?

Is there a maximum number of tabs that can be synced? I have about 800 tabs on my old computer, but when I look at the synced tabs in the sidebar on the new computer, only about half of them are listed. The oldest 400 or so are missing.

And yes, I realize 800 tabs is insane. But that's another discussion. :)

In security I have use primary password enabled. I have sync enabled. When I first open Firefox, the "Please Enter your Primary Password" dialog appears twice. At first I thought I was repeatedly miskeying the first time. But then I noticed that if I drag the modal dialog box, then a second box pops up behind the first. In fact, some times, I can start typing when that second dialog appears. As in the case today when I just caught it. Please see screen shot attached.

FireFox 99.0 Windows Enterprise 10 OS Build: 18363.2212 I am on a Private Browsing window when I see this error.

Please do what it takes to cause me to not have to enter the master password twice.

Thank you,

Dear Forum,

I have not accessed my Devices since a few updates, I use to be able to rename devices, but in 99.01 I no longer see this as an option? I also have found that sometimes when I add a device is adds the Machine name which I prefer and today I logged out all of my devices and found that it added it and named it a generic name "Firefox 99, Windows 10" Which if grave concern as this could be Any Device. Can someone please let me know how this feature in version 99.01 is suppose to name computers and also can you still rename devices and if so how would you change the name, or if there is a link to documentation on this feature as it has changed. TIA for your help.

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

I am switching jobs and want to sync my Firefox history from old work computer to new. Both run Windows. I changed the primary email associated with my account from the old work account to a new email. No problem. I synced the new email to my iphone no problem. Now im trying to download and sync Firefox to my new laptop. Running Windows and Im trapped in a crazy loop. I login with correct password to the new email and it asks for the authorization code and when I enter that, Firefox switches to the OLD email and asks for that password. I am not sure I have that password correct because i set the account up four years ago. Regardless, i cant sync my new laptop. But I was able to sync it on my iphone so it CAN be done with the email addy and password I am confident about. Please help.
