Hey, guys. I got a new laptop as a christmas present, and have been trying to synch bookmarks between my old craptop and it. Surprise surprise, the craptop is erroring when I try to synch. I have the error log here, but, as I am new to the site, don't know how to add it to my post, other than by copy/pasting the contents, and it is too long to do that. So... might need to let me know how to do that. Sorry.

If I display Firefox Accounts under sync in preferences, each computer shows the other's session, and each indicates the correct time of the other's sync. But the bookmarks are not being transferred between the two. The Linux computer (running Quantum 67.0) has not been used for awhile, but it has a big buildup of bookmarks that need to be transferred to the Mac (67.0.2). Both machines have probably 10's of thousands of bookmarks organized in a complex nested hierarchy.

The Mac and a second Mac (also 67.0.2) are syncing bookmarks with each other correctly.

I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

I just starting using Firefox, and I've installed it on a Mac Laptop, a Windows Desktop, an iPhone, and an iPad.

Each install is logged into the same Firefox account, and each install began with the same set of bookmarks.

Now, when I add or remove a bookmark on one device, it's not syncing to any other device. I've tried this on several devices. I've tried manually clicking the "sync" icon on each device to try to kick it into working.

How can I fix this?

So I have firefox on 2 computers. On one of the computers, there are 6 add-ons. But on the other computer, there are only 5. So 1 add-on didn't sync to the other computer. BTW, the add-on is "proxy swichyomega".

and by the way I've experiencing add-on sync problem for a very long time and for various add-ons, which is very annoying and very disappointing. I switched to Chrome in the last few months, now I'm giving firefox another try and I'm experiencing this.

and furthermore, the process for creating this post really sucks. why do I need to create an account? why not just use the sync account? why so many steps with each step displaying over-sized text?

and BTW, here's a piece of the last sync log from the computer that's missing the add-on:

I've installed a new 27" iMac (2017) running the High Sierra OS. The installation used Time Machine to transfer two user accounts and the applications from my previous system, which ran Firefox without a problem. This new implementation of Firefox on the 27" iMac was highly dysfunctional and would not allow me to bookmark new pages and would not sync with bookmarks from my Macbook Air. Consequently, I deleted Firefox from my new system and downloaded and installed a new version of Firefox. With the new version of Firefox I still have problems bookmarking pages, I can't sync with my MacBook Air, and I can't import the bookmarks from my Macbook Air. When I attempt to import bookmarks I get the following notice - "Unable to process the backup file."

In the Bookmarks browser I can find the offending bookmark, but delete does not work. It does noting.

When I try to restore all my bookmarks from any of the auto generated .jsonlz4 file, then I get the failure: "Unable to process the backup file.".

I can't manually edit the places sqllite DB, and the extension I had for that doesn't work any more on FF Quantum. So I tried with vi, but now bookmarks are even more FOO-BAR.

I can't manually edit the the auto generated .jsonlz4 bookmark backup files. There is no unzip for it.

I'm thourougly f*cked as it is (20+ years of bookmarks are trashed).

Can anybody help. The incorrect bookmark might have been around for a while and doesn't look that offending to me (http:///?lidNr=100000363), but all of a sudden FF makes a complete clusterf*ck of it.

How can I fix this?

Since some days I had the problem that my entire Firefox browser (not only an individual tab) was freezing for some seconds every few minutes. I now figured out that this was related to Firefox sync, which started to fail a few days ago and was triggered every few minutes.

The sync logs show errors similar to these:

   1526892780069	Sync.Engine.Addons	DEBUG	Refreshing reconciler state

I then tried to create a new Firefox profile and to start sync all over again, which was also not working. I am operating a Mozilla Sync Server on one of my own private servers and in the server logs, I noticed that sync tried to fetch one million new bookmarks from the server until I cancelled the process after some hours.

After noticing that I had a look into my bookmarks. There I figured out that my bookmarks were completely screwed up. They were doubled and tripled in the "Other Bookmarks" folder and --- strangely --- they were somehow linked. So deleting a particular bookmark in the "Other Bookmarks" folder deleted it also in the "Bookmarks Toolbar" folder, for example. I decided to completely delete all bookmarks and restore them from a backup. Now, at least in the bookmark manager, everything seems fine.

I also deleted my Firefox sync account and registered again to delete all data on the server side and to start with a fresh sync. However, the sync is now still failing with errors similar to the one above.

Any help is appreciated.

Backing up to a json or html file will save all my bookmarks except for the mobile ones I sync between my laptop and my phone. The jsonlz4 file in my profile folder also does not save mobile bookmarks. Sync by itself is usually enough to preserve all my bookmarks, but I made the mistake of installing FF ESR alongside regular FF which screwed everything up; it would have been nice to have had my complete bookmarks backed up at that point, so I could have restored all of them.

Btw, my laptop browser is spoofed: I'm using FF 60.0.1 on Linux Mint; I'm syncing my laptop with my android phone (FF 60.0.1 also).

I signed into Sync across 3 devices. When I visit about:preferences?entrypoint=menupanel#sync in one device, the other 2 devices are not shown. Clicking "Connect another device" does not do anything even if I've signed in across other devices. However, going to "Manage Account" brings me to accounts.firefox.com and shows me all 3 devices when I expand "Devices & apps".

So I know that all my devices are linked to my account, but it's like they don't see each other. Pressing "Sync now" does nothing, and it says my last sync was January 1. I just installed Firefox across 2 of the devices today. The Synced Tabs sidebar is also empty.

I checked about:sync-log, and I've been getting this error: ERROR Sync encountered an error: Error: Can't sync: Network is offline

Clearly, my network is online as I am able to post this. Firefox Sync's service status is also UP/AVAILABLE. Not sure what else could be wrong here.

I used Authy to authenticate my Firefox account. I also used a 2nd email with my firefox account. It also started off so nicely and seemed like the proper, careful thing to do.

But somewhere along the way, amidst various installs/deletions, my authy app got deleted/reinstalled and became out of synch with my firefox, so now the codes (or maybe they're called keys?) that it generates are not recognized by my firefox account. And I can't seem to access any backups or recovery codes that work either.

And so here's the big problem now: On a positive note, yes, my bookmarks can synch between my macbook air and my iphone 8. And yes, on my firefox account I can change the password as many times as I want. BUT, I because I don't have the right authenticator codes working now, I would just like to re-start from scratch, and I would like to disconnect my two emails that are currently associated with this Firefox account.

However, without having the correct authenticator 6-character or long-character info, unfortunately I cannot even get that far! I cannot successful complete the delete action to delete that firefox account in order to do this. So now those two emails of mine are held hostage by this particular Firefox account, and I can't use them in another Firefox account, and I can't use them properly in this Firefox account either because the 2FA isn't working well with the Authy.

I just want to disconnect them and start over, but there seems to be no way to get out of this multifactor circular hell. And also, while I am very happy to have finally found this help screen to type in my question, it took me a LONG time to even find out where to submit my question -- I had to browse through so many not appliable topics for days until I found where I could send something more than just a happy or sad feedback face. It should be much more straightforward to submit a question. Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
