Okay, so I decided to sync my Firefox from my laptop with my work computer. I wasn't thinking about it also making all my passwords available on my work computer, which I do not want. I thought just signing out and using the browser 'un synced' would mean the passwords weren't available, but nope. While signed out, if click into passwords I can still see them all. So my question: If I delete the passwords from here (signed out) on my work computer, will it also delete them from my laptop browser (that is signed in)?

I have a laptop that I used from 2012 to 2015, and sometimes I start it up in order to check my Firefox history and find some URL that I visited once. Today when I tried that, I couldn't get the history. Ctrl+Shift+H didn't work, and when I hit the History menu, the option "Show All History" was gray. What should I do?

I opened the profile folder and saw that there's a big file called places.sqlite, which I think is the history file.

I did set up Sync once, though it didn't seem to do anything -- the history was still what it was when i stopped using that laptop. But I notice today that if I start to type in the address bar a URL that I have used recently on my present laptop, then it suggests the whole URL. In other words, it knows what I've been doing recently on my present laptop.

I initially just wanted to get some ad-blocking program to keep down the volume of all the flashing ads showing up on webpages. I'm working with a new laptop computer, and my old laptop had been "tweaked" with some Mozilla extensions (?) to address this, and I wanted to get the same on my new laptop. So I opened the application menu - the 3 horizontal bar icon, top right. First thing at the top, it asks me to sign in. Honestly, I don't think I ever did this. So I used one of the many secondary email addresses I use for this type of thing, put in a password, and created an account. Up popped a screen saying, "This Firefox is connected". Then down below, it said, "Sign in to Firefox on another device to complete set-up". Ugh, really? Ok, fire up the old laptop and open up Firefox and sign in using the same email and password. Here's where I get lost - up pops a screen that says, "Connect another device". Then down below it says, "Open the code scanner on your Firefox app and show code when ready." And there's a "Show Code" button down below this. But I'm hesitant to press it, because I don't know what my code scanner is, I don't have a flatbed scanner (if that's what they're talking about), my phone is broken (part of the reason I have a new laptop today), and I don't see any Firefox apps called "code scanner", and nothing in the help community that I can find about code scanning. So what the hell? I can't be the only person who's gone down this rabbit hole...

The Send Tab/Link to Device feature only works in one direction, from iOS to MacOS. iOS to iOS never receives, although the popup says it sent. I'm using Firefox 98 on MacOS and iOS. I have a Windows 10 PC which can't receive or send tabs/links as well but I'll limit it to the Apple devices for the moment.

Sync and notifications are enabled on Laptop, iPhone, and iPad. I've de-synced and re-synced each device separately and together. I've attempted to send between each device separately and all together.

Neither iOS device can receive tabs/links from one another, nor send to each other. Laptop can receive tabs/links from both iPhone and iPad, but not send to either.

Each time I re-sync an iOS device I get a notification on the Laptop saying that "this computer is now connected with Firefox iOS". But still nothing works.

The title says it all.

I sat down this morning with planned work to do on my computer and when I tried to log into a site found there was no automatic completion of username and password.

Checking my saved logins and passwords, I found there were no saved logins and passwords!

Apparently, this is an improvement to Firefox called Lockwise!

So, where do I find my saved logins and passwords, please?

And how do I get back to a version of Firefox which doesn't use Lockwise?

How to Remove/Detach a secondary email from account, that no longer has access to the primary email?

Hello,

This is and odd situation so bare with me.

So, I apparently have two Firefox accounts , one that is active and in used (lets call it account#1) and another forgotten old one (account#2), which it's primary email is not longer in use :(

It all started when I was attempting to add a secondary email (the usual email that I use for this kind of things) to the current active account#1 that I am using, and I got an error stating that: the secondary email was already in use by another account. This was a tremendous surprise, because I have totally forgotten account#2 !!!.

Then I started some research to understand what was the history of account#2 and if it was in fact using the secondary email. After digging in old emails, I realize that in fact there was an account#2, and it make sense that I forgot about it, because the primary email linked to it, I no longer have access to. However, I do still have access to the secondary email in account#2.

Here is where it gets interesting. It seems that I am in some sort of lockout situation with the account#2, because the primary email no longer being available. When I attempt to follow procedures to: reset password, I do received the email with the reset link (through the secondary email linked to account#2, that I still have access), but when I attempt to reset the password through the: reset link, it reject this action and display popup error : "Your email was just returned. Mistyped email?". I am guessing because the primary email address is no longer available and it returns a not valid address from the server.

So what now?! To be clear I am not interested in saving account#2 and regaining access. My only interest is to remove/detach the secondary email address from account#2, so I can used in account#1. If that makes sense. I know pretty OCD, I am not proud of it.

I understand that this will be very easy to do, if I could just log in into account#2 and removed the secondary email config, under manage the account, but of course i don't remember the password. So, what if I can't log in? Am I out of luck or can I do something through the secondary email address? If so so how? Which again, I have had access to that email all this time.

I did further research and in this link it says something promising about having a secondary email still accessible, even though primary is not:

Note: If you lost access to your Firefox Account email address, it's possible to change the primary email address, but only if you previously registered a secondary address for that account. That's because you are sent an email to your primary email address to confirm it, when you add a secondary address. Regardless, I am assuming that it is referring to once you log in, of course. Is there any workaround to this or I am doom to just try to remember the password of no longer available primary email.

Please, help me. I understand that they maybe a slight change to detach my secondary email from account#2 and make it available to be used in account#1, but I am not sure how to do it and I have tried everything.

Thank you so much in advance and thank you for your patient if you make it to here,

Regards,

Alejandro

I recently made an account for Firefox so I could use Sync. Whenever I press the three lines at the top left corner it displays my email, for whatever reason. I share my screen often and I wouldn't want to accidentally leak my email and/or any other sensitive information.

Is it possible to make Firefox display my username instead of my email, or make it go away completely without losing functionality? Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I had to return my laptop to factory settings and am now re-customising it. I reinstalled Firefox and tried to sync my bookmarks but the sync went the wrong way: it wiped out my phone bookmarks rather than bringing them over to my laptop.

I was able to restore my bookmarks by exporting them from my desktop computer (on which syncing was turned off) but this wasn't perfect re folders etc, and I've done a lot of manual tidying up. Now there's inevitably a slight divergence.

I would like to reactivate syncing but am worried that the same thing will happen again. How can I sync in a way that transfers all my bookmarks and folders etc from my desktop computer to other devices, rather than in the other direction. (Perhaps it's a question of what order I reconnect my devices in?)

Many thanks!
