I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

I changed the password for the firefox account because I installed a new windows, after which all login details and bookmarks disappeared. during the password change I was not informed that I would lose all data! I let you keep this information in the cloud in trust and you deleted it? Have you gone crazy!?!?!?!? I want to get back my data immediately! I see that a lot of people have a similar problem and you don't do anything about it? How can I trust you at all in this situation?

Adware hidden in Firefox Account

I recently observed that when I visit a certain page (not a website, but a certain page in the website), it seems to be attempting to load flashing the "X" repeatedly. After a few seconds it stops and within 10 seconds I am then redirected to a scam survey website asking me how satisfied I am with my internet provider. I immediately assumed the worst and ran McAfee scans, cleared cache, Malwarebytes free trial scans and no joy.

Then I logged into another computer and loaded up the same page. Please note instead of logging into Firefox and clicking on my bookmark, I simply went to the website, logged in and went to the page. It is the same link in the end. Nothing happened. I thought it was something wrong with my PC at this stage.

I then decided to log into Firefox to see if that would yield different results. I logged in on the other computer that had not presented the spam yet. I clicked the bookmark and it did it. The spam page loaded. From this I understand whatever is causing the problem is in my Firefox Account data.

I then immediately logged out of Firefox on the second computer, uninstalled it and then redownloaded it. Without logging in, the spam still comes up. I am lost. Neither McAfee, Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner find it.

The link for the spam is different every time, usually ending in ".xyz".

Before the spam was present, the page always had a normal padlock beside the URL. Now,sometimes not always, when the spam is going to come up it has an orange warning symbol and say some elements are not secure, and it says something about images.

The page it occurs on is on eBay, and I have used this site no problem for years. It only occurs on my regional message page specific to my country, not on the message page on "ebay.com".

Any help greatly appreciated.

I had accidentally deleted the email address I use from my email server before trying to sign back in to Firefox Sync. I added it back, and made sure that it works. However, it is impossible for me to sign in at all any more because I'm getting the "Your Email was just Returned. Mistyped Email?" error.

Please remove my email address from the bounce list so that I can sign in.

When I log in into firefox sync from the new device, I'm being asked to provide verification code from email.

I have not enabled 2FA, I do nto want this as it does not add any security to log in, and is just a bother, especially since emails form Mozilla are treated as phishing and/or spam.

How do I disable this "feature"?

I have no idea what state is on file as being my state of residence (I move a lot for a civilian), but I've lived at this address for the last three or four years and never had any issue with logging in to my firefox account before. I have plenty of trouble with my location WITHIN the state (Oklahoma), because apparently the only cities that exist in the state are OKC and Tulsa /eyeroll, but I've never had an issue with the state itself being misidentified. I could understand if a VPN was causing the issue, but I'm not using a VPN (I know, I probably should, but imagine the login issue THEN! lol). Thanks in advance for any help.

Astonishingly, Firefox Accounts, and everything behind them, do not require any password for sign-in/log-in. That is, I created a PW and logged in once. But no matter how many times I sign out, Mozilla's systems lets me back in with just a user name and no PW required. This utter failure at basic security is quite disturbing.

This morning I opened my Firefox and used my bookmarks. Closed Firefox. Reopened Firefox and all my bookmarks are gone.

Luckily I make regular html backups and could restore them.

It is just that I would like to know what happened here.

I must say that: I use Firefox on an Android tablet where I never change the bookmarks, and on my laptop where I change them very often. Since a month I got the warning that Firefox was not syncing anymore. I was asked to reconnect to sync. This was on my laptop. Being afraid that reconnecting to sync would install the bookmarks from the Tablet on the laptop I disconnected from sync. But this was 2 days ago!!! Can this have caused the bookmarks suddenly disappearing?

Starting within the past week, Firefox logs me out of Sync whenever I close it (and possibly also randomly when I don't log out).

My bookmarks and passwords are still present but I can't, for example, send/receive shared pages from other devices. "Send to another device" appears to work but doesn't actually send until I open the menu and "click here to sign in" (or whatever), then it *instantly* signs in.

I've never used a master password, and Privacy options are set to "Remember History". A couple times recently it's suddenly "forgotten" my device name, so my laptop shows up 4 or 5 times on other devices. I only recently was forced to switch to "stupid Windows 10" which is painful with only 2gb RAM, but I assume that's not related...

In "about:sync-log" there are plenty of "error-sync" log files (I'm not sure whether this is normal, or if there should be zero?)

Here my sync-errror file from today alone: https://pastebin.com/gsUb85tU -- ( potentially identifying data has been {**deleted**}. )
