I have had my laptop and my PC synced forever. Up until a week ago when I clicked "tabs from other devices" it would show me all of my tabs from the other computer, and if I closed one or opened a new one it would show up in the list almost instantly. Now all of a sudden when I click show tabs from other devices it will only show one or two of the tabs I have open on the other computer and ignore all the rest. No matter what I do I can only get it to show like google and facebook. Everything is still synced properly, bookmarks and all that jazz work fine. It's just the show tabs from other devices that isn't working, and that's the only feature I care about. If your suggestion is to make a new sync profile, don't bother responding, as that is not the problem or the solution.

Hello,

I have unlinked all my devices from an old sync account and setup a new sync. In this process I have used the same email address as before. I have no use of my old sync account, therefore the question is: Can I delete the old sync account (via https://account.services.mozilla.com/ ) and - implicitly - all data associated with it without affecting my new Firefox account (and its data) in any way?

Thank you!

Before Firefox 29 I could tell my devices to copy all tabs, bookmarks, passwords,and history from Device A to Device B. THAT is what Sync used to be. Firefox 29 took away that functionality. I used to be able to flawlessly keep two other devices synced up with my main device. Now we have no control over our Sync accounts and it does nothing to Sync devices after you get the "Setup complete" graphic.

So after years of flawless Sync functionality, now all Sync does is nothing.

Mozilla took away functionality from their product. That is the issue I would like someone to address: bring back to Sync the ability to tell my devices to copy all tabs, bookmarks, passwords, and history from Device A to Device B.

I have two old instances of firefox (version 18 and 24) with sync set up; these are not accessible. How can I get the data from that account migrated to the new Sync backend without disconnecting these clients from Sync?
