Can't sign in to sync. Whenever I try to sign in (the first time) I get told there's been too many tries and to try again in 15 minutes. I can't believe I'm actually wasting time trying to get this to work when every other browser from fifteen year old Chaddie Punchwalls living in his grandmother's basement can manage this. Firefox needs to work on stealing ideas from successful browsers, successfully.

Deleted Bookmarks from 5 years ago suddenly all restored

I'm totally desperate: all the bookmarks (which I deleted about 5 years ago) have been restored since I started to use my old laptop again, which I hadn't used in years - what can I do? I'm talking about hundreds of bookmarks which would take me days to check and delete - this was already an issue years ago but didn't occur for quite some time, but today it has reappeared. Please help to fix this right now, and also for this issue to not occur again - there has to be an option to define one computer as the main one with which all other secondary computers should be synced, and not the other way around...?

I have one Windows and one MacBook machine and Firefox on both. Both are signed in to my Mozilla account. On the Windows machine I have 5+ containers, these containers never sync to my MacBook Firefox. I have signed out of all machines, including an iPad and iPhone. Nothing has worked over multiple months. Note that at some time in the past the containers did sync.

The MacBook is on Sonoma 14.5, and FireFox 128.0. The Windows is Windows 10 Pro and FireFox 128.0.

Please help.

Avoiding pre-existent setting for plugins to be overwritten from a new machine.

Hello everyone, I am experiencing this issue since - I suppose - Firefox Sync existed. My main machine has - like any other machine I own - Firefox always up to date and a set of plugins like No-Script, an ad-blocker, a theme, GUI icon disposition and whatnot. When I install Firefox on a new device or machine and then proceed to sync them, I lost the theme across all my synced devices, ALL of the registered sites I have trained No-Script and the adblocker not to block and my GUI settings. In short every new machine with a fresh install and sync of Firefox will wipe and overwrite to its defaults any synced custom configuration I have. Is there a solution for this?

Thank you.

Next example: Open Firefox on android and go to Sync and Save. (Not there). Frustrating.
