I made a Firefox account a while ago. I use Firefox in my user account as well as when I work in the Admin account. I think I have noticed before that these two Firefoxes were automatically synchronized now and then. But since I had to deal with a problem in the Admin account (continuously opening download windows) and reset Firefox there, the Hans- the user- Firefox differs from the Admin Firefox. That does not matter much in itself, but what if ever I change computer or something? Which version will be leading then, and decide on what kind of Firefox will be installed?

Hi there,

I created a synch account long time ago and could use it without problems. Since two weeks or so I can't log in to my account anymore. I have the screen: "to continue please log-in" (in German) and after typing the password I am in an endless process "in progress"! There is something wrong  ;-)

Today i have decided to start using Sync again, after not using it for quite a while (i don't know how long exactly, over a year). I had, since then, updated several passwords and saved these with the Firefox password manager.

Now after logging into Sync, the passwords that the password manager filled in were not the ones i had updated, but the ones that were still saved in Sync. Checking the saved passwords showed that the PW-manager indeed only had the old passwords i had stored online with Sync. Logging out of Sync did not switch back to the local passwords. I have no backups of logins.json/key3.db.

Is there any way to recover the local passwords? Does Sync simply update and overwrite the local files, or does it do something else, that can be undone?

If there is no resolution for this issue, it might be a good idea for the future that Sync compares the dates of passwords for specific logins, and only keeps the newer ones (or asks which ones to keep).

Hello, I have been waiting a few days for a verification email from Firefox Sync. I'm logging in through Firefox on another computer. The email address is a standard Gmail one, and I have checked all folders, including Spam. I'm actively sending and receiving Gmail messages, so there's nothing wrong with that account. Since there's no direct way to contact Mozilla, I'm at a loss of what to do next. I want to have everything synced up properly; that's the reason I'm using the service to begin with. Does anyone have a suggestion?

What will happen to the data stored by syncing, if these data were lost on the 1st device (assuming there is one main device, cciiw), but still available on a later connected device? This happened to me: my Firefox data were gone as a result of some Linux problems. On my Windows Firefox, everything was still there, and also on my Android phone, both were synced recently. Now I tried to 'sync them back' to the 1st device, my Linux computer. No saved logins re-appeared. Then I started to think: maybe there is a hierarchy, and a preferred direction for deleted data. Suppose for example, that I want to delete the logins from my phone, for security reasons. I would not want to loose them the next time Firefox is synced on my computer. But there has to be a way data are deleted from the account, otherwise deleting would have to be done on all the devices in one run, before any device is synced. After thinking this, I temporarily 'froze' my Android Firefox, because that may be the only place where the logins are still present. And I would hate to loose them, in case syncing sends data from the 1st device to other devices, and not vice versa. Detail: there was a master password at first on my computer, I removed that and tried again. Same result. There is NO master psw on the phone, which must change asap, but maybe my luck not to have it this time.

Hi,

I installed Firefox Nightly (56.0a1 (2017-07-22) (64-bit)) and enabled sync for bookmarks and passwords. Bookmarks were synced correctly, but not the passwords.

I can see a the file logins.json in my profile folder, with the logins content. But if I go to Preferences->Security->Saved Logins the list is empty. Also, logins form field are not auto filled.

None content was imported manually. Nightly somehow synced and downloaded the logins.json, but apparently it's not using it.

I already did this exact same process (reinstall in new machine + sync) without any problem, except for this time/version. May it be a bug?

I already tried some forum solutions: connect/reconnect account; delete signedInUser.json; restarting; etc. Everytime the logins.json is correctly fetched from the web with the content, or the bookmarks are synced correctly, but Nightly apparently is not 'using' the contents of this file.

Thank you,

Mario

"The confirmation email we sent to n*******@****.** was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data."

I'm pretty sure emails to that account are not bouncing. Could you please unlock my account so that I can access my sync account through THAT email, which actually accepts emails as I've tested many times? (For example, this mozilla account is linked to the same email address, for which I received a confirmation email from Mozilla itself a few minutes ago)

I have had Firefox for years in linux, currently Debian Jessie. 8 days ago I installed Firefox for Android to my phone running Marshmallow. After installing I've created a Firefox Sync account on linux and logged into it from Android. All the bookmarks got transferred to Android just fine. There was nothing to sync back because installation on Android was new.

Since then (8 days ago), both devices report that they are connected to the Sync account. But nothing is synced. Both devices report that there are 2 devices but that the other device wasn't online for 8 days. And I've got mails that I only connected one device (but as I said, the account shows two devices connected on both platforms).

What's the problem? I will update to Debian Stretch soon, will a new desktop Firefox fix the thing automatically?

Confused,

Tried to sync Firefox after preinstalling OS, it said "e-mail was returned" and on the second or third try account got locked. The e-mail is the one of this account. I haven't used it for nothing else besides the Firefox Sync, it probably got inactive or something like that. It's working now though, and I added accounts@firefox.com to contacts so it doesn't mark it as spam or something. I found other people's posts about same issue and a lady working with Mozilla support team trying to help, but I don't (didn't) have an account here to ask for help on those threads.
