Gradually, the game Taonga Island became unplayably slow as you started insisting more often that I sync my accounts, mails, etc..

I will NEVER sync because I do not intend to give you in a neat wrapper what others pay you for, I want to remain anonymous as much as possible, and I certainly do not intend to give ANYBODY a neat package of linked and authenticated accounts etc. about myself. That is why I am not on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn etc etc..

STOP demanding I do this SYNC shit. Or I will tell everyone I work with, play with, etc to NEVER us any Mozilla products as sooner or later, they are going to blackmail you.

Today Firefox opened with my account disconnected. No passwords. I reset my account password but still no passwords. The logins file shows a .corrupt extension. I rename this and nothing happens. Every time I re-open FF (v 93.0) the .corrupt is added and I can't get to my passwords. I have hundreds.

OK I have been trying to go 100% Firefox for just a few months but with privacy and security as primary directive. It would be wonderful to just be in ine well moderated browser ecosystem and actually being able to have my preferences, interest and personal information centralized with eventual goal of digitally divorcing tech companies from my personal data. I still have to use a lot of different devies with varying OS and it literally took me two years to help Apple fix an AppleId problem. Now that I have that sorted out I have been hoping to move away from gmail entirely and eventually have my own mailserver but using icloud now for macs and pcs.


At a minimum it seems like even after forced manual I have not properly sync an imac with windows 10 PC. So to keep it simple I stay there but this morning when I typed into Firefox on my iMac its was google search not Duckduckgo. Not only have I synced it in firefox but icloud should be redudant and I had removed google from list of potential search engines. There seems to be some way for a hostile takeover of these settings and google connstant agressive intrusions asking for data is not just wrong or annoying its simply impossible to not have facebook or google track me beyond california digital privacy standards. The worst offender may be youtube. I want to fix the browser and sync my stuff. But I am also looking for extensions that will help me do that better.

I am pretty thorough and now just want to learn more and would like to believe one can have a semblance of privacy but it seems like it will be an adversarial experience when the companies that do can rollback privacy with clever tv ads. The 'providers' clearly do not give hoot about rules, preferences and laws designed to protect people's rights.. That is what is particulary frustrating. It is not a fair fight but a good one. I guess what I am wondering is if there are specific modules you could add to detect maybewhen an event like change in search engine occurs and whether logs may exist as to how or why the change was made. Even if it was an accidental quick through a popup in chromium or edge where I was always being cued to come back to Chrome. Logging out doesnt always seem to work so i tried syncing with and chrome with more or less same results. Very little actual control or at least a tendency to revert back to the data miners preferences over mine. I want to help stop that.

I've been attempting to snyc my desktop PC Firefox with my laptop Firefox. In the process, I'm able to log into my account on the PC, but none of the saved passwords I have for my account work. I am not able to see the current password on my PC account and am not able to change it without losing my data. In attempting to change the password, I used the Recovery Key which I had save some time ago but find that it is expired. In clinking on the options to generate a new key from within my account, nothing happens. How can I find or change the original account password and or generate a new recovery key after removing the old one? My primary desktop PC poses no problem in terms of access to my data etc. I am not able to see the password and consequently I am not able to sync my laptop without it.

I was running Windows 10 on my new laptop. I was able to sync Firefox to my new laptop. The laptop then stated it could run Firefox at the system level. So, I allowed the new laptop to reboot and set it up. Firefox was working. Then I was forced to Upgrade Windows to V11. I was able to install Firefox and make it the default browser. But I was not able to get any of my bookmarks to open. I was not able get anything to open. Firefox stated it was able to sync but nothing was opening. I attempted to see my Firefox saved passwords and it would not open. I get no errors. So, I reset my Firefox login password to be able to send this request using Edge. Now my Firefox will not allow me to sync as it is not prompting me for my new password.

How do I get access to my saved passwords within firefox?

Thanks

Hello,

Is there any way to recover all login's, bookmarks, settings after changing my password on a new computer? I know why it happens, but I can prove through 2nd authentication that it is my account. But I lost all data from at least 10 years of use. 
I do still have my old PC currently not on network 'thank the gods'. Is there a way to recover all the data through that? 

Thanks for any help.

P.S. I think this security feature should be able to be turned of by each user (at their own risk).

Greetings, I have an iMac running OS Monterey 12.2.1. I use Firefox as my browser and it is 'up to date'.

My homepage is the Sydney Morning Herald, and I am a subscriber of many years. When I open the browser is shows the Home Page of the SMH, and shows my name as being 'logged on'. BUT, when I click on any story within that page to read in depth, it goes to that story, but requires me to 'log in' the password a second time.

When contacting Apple Support, they requested I try both Safari and Chrome to see if the same problem exists there. And, it doesn't. I can log on to the SMH site and then click on any story and read it without needing to log in a second time.

I am 84 years of age and find this rather frustrating... particularly as I do not have the cyber skills of a younger person. I am used to Firefox and prefer it as my chosen browser.

I hope you can advise me how to rectify this vexing problem.

Thanks, Frank Arnold I
