Whenever I run firefox I get "Sync has encountered an error during synchronization: Incorrect account name or password." Sync automatically retrying this action. "

I am using the new firefox Sync since it is has been implemented without problem. I got this error after you perform the following steps:

(1) old drive replaced with the new SSD drive and installed Windows 7 drivers etc + Firefox
(2) deleted [email protected]***.com Firefox Sync account
(3) [email protected]***.com Firefox Sync account created
(4) imported my favorites last folder E:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\***.default\bookmarkbackups on the old drive.

Since then, whenever I open Firefox I get the above error. If I enter the password 'Firefox Sync' sync works fine until the next time that I restart Firefox.

I think I've tried all the solutions on the firefox support forums and Firefox Sync troubleshooting.
Among others, I have:

(1) updating Firefox is
(2) signedInUser.json deleted, restarted firefox with Add-ons disabled, account forget Firefox Sync, reconnect to the account
(3) deleted Firefox Sync account and recreated
(4) completely uninstalled with Revo Uninstaller, file C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\ deleted, reinstalled firefox firefox.

Thanks for any help

Thank you 1 million.

You pointed me to the right direction. Manager of password has been activated, but it seems that firefox has reset my privacy settings.

All I had to do was my privacy settingsand in my history of custom parameters, click parameters next to "Clear history of Firefox closing" and uncheck the box "Saved passwords" as in the following image

    I want to switch to Chrome, Firefox, but I have a problem with the synchronization feature.

    I already tried this work around, but it did not work: remove my account from syncing, completely reset my Firefox profile, import my favorites of Chrome (using an HTML file), set up a new sync account (using the same e-mail address then that previously deleted).

    I saw in other threads that could be a problem with the story, so I also tried to delete, but it doesn't work anymore.

  • Problem with sync error: synchronization has encountered an error during synchronization: unknown error. Sync automatically retrying this action.

    Hi, I started recently a problem with the sync on my desk. My partner Android and Mac laptop no problems when you attempt to synchronize, but office always gives the same error. I tried to disconnect from the desktop computer, erase all files, restart and then adding the Office to synchronize once more, but the error persists.

    All bookmarks on the desktop disappeared, but are still in my sync data and have no problem being viewed on other connected devices. It also tells me that the issue is not the sync server and that there is something unique to the desktop machine.

    I hope that this will not require a reinstall, but if all else fails, it's an option. I'll try to attach a log file once I put the question.

    I think the error message is in the title of the thread:

    Sync has encountered an error during synchronization: unknown error. Sync automatically retrying this action.

    Try creating a new profile as a test to check whether your profile is the source of the problems.

    See "create a profile":

    If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a profile in the new profile, but make sure not to copy corrupted files.

    Try to disconnect and reconnect to synchronize via the Firefox > Preferences > Sync window.

    You may also delete the signedInUser.json file in the profile folder.

    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder currently in use:

    • Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)
  • SE error message: Sync has encountered an error during synchronization: could not connect to the server. Sync will automatically...

    This has happened since the last update. Currently on v38.0.1 desktop. I don't see this message when you use an Android tablet, and Favorites and passwords seem to be synchronized.

    The message then offers the preference button. When I click the button, the message disappears. Reappear when you navigate to a new tab.

    Thanks for help on this.

    You see the entrance with the Sync (Firefox) credentials in the Firefox password manager that I posted in my first answer?

    Con - El,
    Thank you. Yes, I've always seen the Firefox Sync credentials, and I can't connect to accounts.firefox.com/settings.

    This morning, I deleted the signedInUser.json file in the profile folder, rebooted Foxfire and signed in Web sites. I left the PC to go to sleep. Wake up two hours later, there is no error message.

    I note that the file signInUser not re-emerged during the re-start of Firefox. If at this point, it looks like to solve.

    Thank you

  • Sync has encountered an error during synchronization: unknown error?

    I did all the procedures to run the synchronization. I always get this error message. As another user, mine started after the last update. Does anyone have a solution for this? Thank you all for reading and useful advice. (Turn off sync is NOT useful.)

    Thank you, according to the newspaper, synchronization fails because there is a malformed bookmark that apparently breaks things.
    I don't know how it would be possible to identify the incorrect one. one thing you might try is to go to the library of Favorites (ctrl + shift + b) > import and backup and export your bookmarks in the .html file and backup as a .json once. You can then try to re-import from these sources to backup again and see if this can solve the problem...

    Hi all

    Thank you for your support. I solved the problem. Find the info below.

    ===================================================================================================

    Question: Like I said existing VM is cloned VM. Then after we had changed the host name. I checked the database alert log file:

    Before the reboot: name of the node was the previous still node name VM that it functioned very well. (for ex: xyz.domain)

    After the reboot: name of the node is replaced by the new host name. (for ex: abc.domain)

    Once the name of the node is changed he started creating problem in starting the application services.

    One last thing, I want to mention here after hostname change, approval of new contextfile has 700, but it should be 755.

    Solution: I followed these steps.

    (1) stop all services on the LAYERS of the DB and APP

    (2) change the new contextfile permission if not 755 and the .env at the level of the source DB

    (3) cd $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin and run as: perl adgentns.pl appspass = apps contextfile = $CONTEXT_FILE - removeserver

    (4) change the name from old host to the new host name, so find in contextfile.

    (5) start listener, then the database

    (6) listener status, it must must give service to the db instance

    (7) perform autoconfig with new contextfile (DB Tier)

    (8) perform autoconfig (pane APP)

    (9) start all services

    ======================================================================================================

    It works for me, and now the application is running. I hope that it will also work for others.

  • "The installation process has encountered an error during the installation of the shared technologies."

    Basically, whenever I try to download Adobe Premiere elements 11 on my Windows Vista computer, to halfway through a message appears saying that "the installation process has encountered an error during the installation of the shared technologies. If please restart your system and try again. »

    Whenever I insert the disc, I select the trial version, in case I have download the full version and it allows me to use my serial code.

    Someone said the destination folder could not contain more then 250 characters, then I changed its position of "C:\Program Files\Adobe\" in "C:\". ", but he still came up with the same message!

    I downloaded the new Adobe Reader 10, but this makes no difference to the process... no matter what I tried he always comes up with the same message.

    I also activate my antivirus software during the installation of Adobe Premiere Elements. Again, this is not do the trick. And I restarted my computer and tried to download it and not download more than once!

    Each time the same message comes back, and I have no idea how to fix... Its not my memory challenge which is a problem, because I currently have 50 GB free on my OS C:\ drive.

    I also have QuickTime version 7.6.9, which is apparently necessary?

    If you know something that I have not tried that can work, or the problem causing this and a solution to the problem, please can you let know me, thanks!
