Hello, I am in a dreadful situation.

I needed to format my PC, changing OS from Windows 10 to Windows 11. I have backed up my Mozilla profile just in case, along with other things.

Long story short - my backup failed. I thought that shouldn't be that much of a problem, as there's Firefox Sync. After getting the new OS, logging in to Firefox Accounts, syncing... nothing. It synced with the current state (so brand new browser) and didn't import anything. Bookmarks or history, which are very important to me. Currently, I have no way of retrieving them.

Is there a way to get Firefox Sync to Sync with what was saved some time ago? Literally anything before February 1st will work for me. I am very dependent on my browsers, Chrome synced perfectly fine, Firefox didn't.

I cannot find any relevant information on this topic, is there any chance of getting help here?

I recently transferred to Linux operating system, and when I login to firefox, and press sync, my saved logins aren't there. I've tried to log out then log back in, restarted the app several times, but won't show anything!

Before I transferred to Linux I was using Windows, and I made sure that the sync worked before transferring, so I tested the sync on a portable version of Firefox, and I was successful in syncing my saved logins.

But now it doesn't work, and I cannot see any of my passwords or logins, there is only 1 saved login which is locally stored, which was there before I logged into my account on Firefox.

Hi

I urgently need the bookmarks from my old firefox account. I have the same email address but have forgotten the password to my old firefox account, I also don't have a recovery key.

Is there any way for me to recover those bookmarks without having them deleted by reseting the password??

Thank you!

Good morning,

I have 3 devices connected to my Firefox account: a Windows 10 desktop, a Windows 11 laptop, and an iPhone 13. I have sync enabled on all 3 devices. My desktop shows 217 logins and paswords, but my iPhone and Windows 11 laptop (ASUS Zenbook) only show 47. No matter what I do, I cannot get all the passwords to sync from my desktop, to the other two devices. I've logged out and back in, disabled and enabled syncing, manually synced, but still nothing.

Is there something else that I'm missing or not doing that I should be?

Thanks in advance.

I always thought Firefox Sync was kind of a backup service. Today I was disappointed to learn that Firefox Sync cannot be trusted as a backup service.

A search for “firefox sync” finds 2,929 results in Community Discussion Only.

As late as 2/2/23, Top 10 Contributor Paul says: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1404105#answer-1563509

“It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device... The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.”

I looked through all the Mozilla Help Articles I could find about Firefox Sync. Not one of them mentions that Firefox Sync should not be relied upon as a backup service.

Then I found this blog searching Google: “The Future of Sync”. https://blog.mozilla.org/services/2020/09/15/the-future-of-sync/

In the blog, JR Conlin says, among other things: “A New Hope Service: A lot of folks expected it to be a Backup service. The good news is, now it is a backup service. Sync is more reliable now.”

JR Conlin posted the above blog in Sept 2020. Is there anyone who can comment on JR Conlin’s statement or the progress of his and his team’s work?

Thank You to all volunteers.

I want to use a different account linked to my Firefox. All data i used at first account is partially obsolete. At the same time i want to keep the data for just in case moments. When i use another account address, Firefox asks for my primary account. I just want to make a new account. Why i need the primary and also a verification at another device. At first i did manage and got a second sync account, but then Firefox started to combine those 2 accounts. More bookmarks. twice bookmark Firefox. I just want to start from scratch (without losing the data i already got). Firefox behaves likes Google or Facebook it follows you where ever you go, keeps tracks on you.

I have two laptops and a mobile phone that are connected to Firefox and have sync operating. One the laptops shows a location of Wrexham which is approximately correct. The other shows a location of Boardman, OR, United States, a place some 6000 miles away and of which I have never heard. Googling the location gives me no useful information, other than it is a small town with no special characteristics. A screenshot of part of the Firefox Accounts page illustrates what the situation is.

The laptop stated as in Boardman has a location set within Windows. That is not Wrexhan but is only a few miles from there.

I have used iplocation.net which gives me the location of my ISP, in England.

I sometimes use a VPN (for work) and when being used iplocation.net gives a different English location which I think is the locaton of the ISP for my Employer.

I am unsure what is going on here nor do I know what implications there are for my security. I do not seem to be able to fix this.

Can anyone help, please?
