Hello,

It is really dissappointing and frustrating to not being able to get a realtime help from a staff over the phone just like old days. Got a problem, pickup the phone and then talk to a humble staff (back then), BAAAM, problem sorted. Instead, I need now to wite a two to three paragraphs to not only improve my writing, but also to lengthen the problem time. OK!

I have changed my Firefox Accounts account's (huh!) password to be 99 characters, this worked fine on my PC. However, on my Samsung phone (Note 4 Edge), it is running Android 6.0.1.

When I tried to reconnect to my account, I got a silly message saying that: "the confirmation email we sent to xxxxx@hotmail.com was returned and we've locked your account to protect your Firefox data". The email is MY EMAIL and it is valid! It simply didn't get their confirmation email. Not even in junk folder (save your words).

Obviously, Firefox is trying to protect my data from ME!. Secondly, instead of saying that: a 99 character long password could be the case, they just covered their mistakes by merely hitting the lock button from their side and left me with writing up about the whole issue.

My direct question is: Is it the password length that prevents me from connecting to my F.... Firefox Accounts account? Or is it something else. I doubt it is the former though! huh...

Waiting for Firefox to urge thier cavaliers, whom which I undoubtly respect, to answer this embarrasing question and cover up thier mistakes.

And now I need another extra time to hide my email in the picture for my privacy and for Firefox fellas who would applause for me. I know that they would.

Recently I tried to sent tab to my smartphone, but couldn`t do it. I'm logged in on both devices, desktop and android, but they don't paired. I can't find such option (when I`m trying to log out and log in again, I just need to put my email and password, there is no pair option). Also sync doesn't work on Android (I tried to tap, but nothing happened) and sync options are inactive.

Hi, Can anyone tel me how I can edit the about:config from FireFox Nightly on my Andoid, so that it connects to my server?

Yesterday my "old" firefox updated to the newest 79, I believe and with it override the setting to connect to my sync server. The new FF do not support inputs into the config, so I have to switch to nightly. If I follow this setup, I don't finde any entries to change https://mozilla-services.readthedocs.io/en/latest/howtos/run-sync-1.5.html

Would be nice to get some advices

I upgraded my phone from the Samsung Galaxy S7 to the S10e.

I have my desktop and laptop set up to sync Firefox and both are running the most current versions.

My s7 also was set to sync and was working just fine.

I downloaded the most version of Firefox for Android on to the S10e. I've been successful at connecting the device to my account (it shows in the list of devices).

However, it is unwilling to actually synchronize. When I go to accounts, it says "sync: never" and the categories to be synced are grayed out (bookmarks, history, etc).

I've uninstalled/reinstalled, I've restarted the device, I've clicked sync in the laptop version.

I don't know what else I am missing?

Firefox Browser 68.8.1 on the S10e Firefox 76.0.1 on the Apple MacBook Pro (I don't know the version on my PC desktop, but pretty sure it's up to date)

I'm really upset! The new v79 has half the features and sync wasn't running: always shows "last sync on 1970" and didn't let me select what to sync. I cleared the cache, not solved... I cleared all my data, reconfigured, but still no sync! So I removed the app and manually installed the old one. Guess what? It still doesn't sync!!! Now I'm left with the Firefox I know and love but I can't use it because I have NO credentials and no bookmarks... I would like to kick someone...

I recently lost my computer in a storm. I had all kind of password stored on my Firefox browser. I had to get a new phone and have never used the my previous phone for Firefox or anything on the internet. Now that I am in the situation that I am in I did get a phone that has internet access and I desperately need to access my passwords. I have logged into Firefox under my name and email address. it's supposed to be easy just push a button here push a button there but I don't have any button that I see on my Android phone that leads me to my account information. If someone would reach out and help a feller that don't have any sense when it comes to the computer, I would be greatly appreciative
