I just starting using Firefox, and I've installed it on a Mac Laptop, a Windows Desktop, an iPhone, and an iPad.

Each install is logged into the same Firefox account, and each install began with the same set of bookmarks.

Now, when I add or remove a bookmark on one device, it's not syncing to any other device. I've tried this on several devices. I've tried manually clicking the "sync" icon on each device to try to kick it into working.

How can I fix this?

Hi folks,

I have endured the sync problem for months. Today I struggled for solving it.

I have a Firefox 68.0.1 esr manual installation on Ubuntu 16.04. The sync worked when I signed in the first time. But the bookmark can not longer be updated afterwards.

If I add or delete a bookmark on my Firefox 68.0.1 esr on Windows 10, the change will not be updated to the Linux version. And vice versa.

On the Linux, I tried to disconnect my account (in the preference about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync ). I click "Disconnect" and "Just Disconnect" in the prompt, but the account is still logged in.

Another way I tried is to have a fresh new installation of Firefox 68.9 esr. Then I was asked to sign in again. After typing the password, the new bookmarks were updated. But If I make further changes on the other devices, these changes will not be sync to Linux. And I can't disconnect the account on Linux.

It looks like a new install, which resetting the login process can temporarily solve the problem.

Here is the content of the sync-log file. Can you see what is broken? Thanks in advance.

Happened once a while back but happened again today. Firefox Sync asked me to reconnect, which I did. After that reconnection, and even if "password" is checked in the parameters, all my passwords have disappeared. I do also have Firefox on my phone, which have all my passwords from before the first instance it occured, but it never synchronized to Firefox on my computer. No error messages appears when synchronizing, and everything seems to be normal. Any way to correct the non-synchronization of passwords ? Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Thanks.

I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

Recently I bought a new PC, installed Firefox on it, logged in with my account and synced all of my bookmarks and add-ons, etc My wife is now working on my old PC, therefore I removed all old programs and installed just the basic stuff she always uses. She's also created her own account after installing the latest version of Firefox. I didn't rename the computer, only her Windows useraccount. Also created a new profile, that doesn't help either because bookmarks keep getting synced between two different accounts each on a different PC and I don't seem to get it right. Looked at the different devices that should sync under each account, that seems to be OK. But everytime I make a change in the bookmarks on one of the PC's with it's own account the other one also gets changed under that different account. Can someone help me by taking it step by step, so I can understand what it is I am doing wrong?

Firefox will never ever open in maximized window after I log in with my Firefox account and make some changes to the toolbars. Advanced properties to make maximizing default won't work either. It hasn't worked for many Firefox versions I've tried and that caused me to use Chrome. But if you manage to fix this problem, I'll be more than happy to stick with Firefox.

I had a lot of important bookmarks in Firefox without signed in Firefox account on my old PC. Before moving away from that old PC, I signed in to firefox account to it connect Firefox data with my mail and account. I even tested that in way that I signed out from my account, removed all the data from Firefox, and when I signed in again, it was all there. It was about 5 months ago. Now, on my new PC, when I signed in with same account, there is no any those bookmarks. I tried to restore bookmarks, but it offers me only two time points in past for restoring, and none of those gives me back bookmarks or any other data. I didn't use that account with Firefox until now. Please help, there was a lot of important bookmarks to me for work.

I did a Firefox restore due to suspect browser hijack ( it wasn't). All mu saved logins have been eraases so tried to do a manaul sync.

This pops up a yellow bar along the top of the "Logins and Paswords" page saying "Please enter your master password to view saved logics and passwords" . I don't have a master password set so that makes little sense. To the right of the yellow bar is a button "login". if i click the button ther yellow bar goes away but there is no log in dialog.

What do I do to get Fiefox to sync?

I have two PCs one Linux the other Windows 10. I can sign on to my Firefox account on both machines Synch seems to be enabled on the Linuz PC only. When I try to connect Synch to the Windows PC I get the image which is on the first attached Screenshot. Following these direction I sign in to Firefox account on Windows and get the screen displayed in the second attachment. After about ten seconds it switches to the word "Working.." and stays there for hours.

This issue has been around for years with no actual solution. I recently finally got around to disconnecting three of my devices (laptop, Samsung tablet and Samsung smartphone) from Firefox Sync in order to determine if the problem is sync-related. The bookmarks toolbar on my main device (another laptop) were still being randomly rearranged. I therefore disconnected this laptop from sync as well. The bookmarks toolbar has since been stable with no rearranging. This is telling me that this is a sync issue, not an issue with a corrupt places.sqlite file, an add-on/plug-in or hardware acceleration, as previously suggested by Mozilla, which was then marked as a solution. Sync has often been quite useful, but since I have my bookmarks (folders) arranged in alphabetical order on the toolbar for quick access and use them all frequently, I'd rather forego sync than deal with constant reordering of the bookmarks toolbar. I gather from what I've read that this problem also exists in the Google Chrome web browser. Even if the problem is a corrupted places.sqlite file, surely the sheer number of users experiencing the issue would suggest a bug or vulnerability with that file, irrespective of what add-ons are installed since the likelihood of all those users having the same add-on(s) installed is probably minimal. Surely it's about time Mozilla properly investigated (e.g. what add-on(s) is causing the issue, how the places.sqlite file can become corrupted, how sync is causing the problem, etc., etc. and disseminating the findings to users) and actually solved this issue instead of expecting users (the IT-savvy ones at least) to waste time doing their own futile troubleshooting. I really don't think that I should have had to disconnect from sync in order to "fix" this problem.

After starting Firefox, Sync starts and gets stuck on "Syncing" till I restart. Ever page shows as bookmarked for a while and then they all turn into not bookmarked. Backups won't be saved. Changes to bookmarks and adding new ones won't work either. Have tried a new profile, deleting xulstore.json and places.sqlite and have also tried safe-mode and all of them together. The sync is still in a loop. I have about 56000 bookmarks(I know that's a lot!) but it didn't use to take more than a few seconds. And not being able to see the last sync time by hovering really sucks as well btw.

I have been using FF for years and *had* my browser set up perfectly. I got a new travel laptop and decided to install FF there and sync the settings from my main computer to the new laptop.

Unfortunately sync decided that my newly installed browser's settings were more important and removed all of my open tabs, history, settings, etc from my everyday browser.

This is super counter-productive; I've lost hours of work trying to relocate all of the browser windows I had open and getting all of the settings back to normal.

I rarely ever complain online about buggy software but this was so annoying I just had to.

Maybe consider disabling Sync until you can figure out how to either alert the user that all of their settings are about to be overwritten or provide an option to assign a particular browser as the master and all syncing begins from that.
