So I downloaded Firefox and logged in expecting my bookmarks to carry over after I "sync'd" it, however the did not. So I went to my old pc and did the export bookmarks thing and imported it to the new pc.

Now.. I have all my bookmarks and everything appears great. Except whenever I open a link from say my work it opens a Mozilla window that doesn't have my bookmarks. When I try to combine the windows It doesn't let me. I am also scared of losing access to the Mozilla with my bookmarks as I work from home using those. (the desktop shortcut to Mozilla opens the one without all my work)

In the attached screenshot things to note, the bookmark bar available on left isn't there on the right. Additionally in the taskbar (bottom) it shows Mozilla in two distinctly separate icons. When two Mozilla windows are open, they share the same icon on the taskbar, these do not, which leads me to believe I have two incompatible versions existing next to each other.

I have sent a number of tabs from Firefox on my phone to Firefox on my laptop. Despite phone Firefox saying they had been sent, the tabs never arrived on my laptop's Firefox. Where did they go? How do I get them back? I closed the tabs on my phone already; sending them to my laptop was part of cleaning house on my phone.

I tried contacting Mozilla Customer Service, but there is absolutely no way to do it. You customer service leaves much to be desired.

You updated your unstable system. It did the update, but now my saved passwords are missing. If your system deletes the passwords, what kind of safety do users of Firefox are guarantee? If this issue is not resolved, I will leave and delete your browser NEVER to use it again. In addition, I created a Firefox account long time ago to supposedly have my passwords secure. At this point all the passwords are missing. What security is your system providing?

I had to make a separate account just to post here but last night I was going through a lot of stress with computer issues, and had to semi-reset windows (lost all my programs, still have other files), I wasn't thinking straight and forgot to back up anything for my Firefox account and I have been trying passwords all day and I still cannot get in. It's gotten to the point where the Firefox Accounts login page asks me to give it a code from my email, I give it said code and the passwords still incorrect. If I can give it codes from my email, why can't I log in through my email or anything else?

I cannot reset the password because I would lose hundreds of saved passwords that I had stored in Firefox along with important bookmarks. I need to know if there is any way I can recover my account without losing my data, because I cannot afford to lose it at all.

I'm trying to create a FF account, but when I put in my e-mail address I get the error "Primary account email required for sign-in". I may have in the past used an old e-mail address, but that address is old and now gone.

I can't log into FF with the old account because it wants to send a confirmation e-mail (to an address that no longer exists). So my main e-mail address is now blocked from being used with FF.

I had to create a new e-mail address just to create an account to post this, but I really want to be able to use my normal e-mail address so I can use sync. Does anyone know how I can do this, or are any admin people able to help me fix this?

I tell it to sync, it never does. Stored information is now years old, can't update.

I need to create a new profile because I am having problems, the old one appears to be corrupt. I need to keep all my extensions, settings, history, tabs, bookmarks, etc.

So from the profile that has all the settings, I tell Firefox Sync to sync. It says it's syncing.

Then I quit Firefox, open with the profile manager, create a new blank profile, and sign into Firefox Sync using the same Firefox Account.

Within a few minutes, sync completes, and my new browser profile is exactly like an old copy of firefox that I deleted maybe 5 years ago. All my old extensions, tabs, everything.

I need to sync my CURRENT Firefox so I can restore a clean profile to it. Not restore a setup from a copy I deleted years ago.

I've tried this process about 4 times now and the result is always the same. Firefox sync does NOT see my current tabs, extensions, bookmarks, settings, anything. It keeps the ones from years ago no matter what.

I don't want to delete my firefox account and start a new one because it will cause me to lose access to all my forum comments.

My laptop needed a refresh and all data needed to be erased. Thinking Firefox has synced all my bookmarks and settings I happily reset my laptop but now I just installed Firefox again and logged in but there is no settings, no bookmark! What happened to the bookmarks? Is syncing really reliable?
