It seems that I can not receive BTC,because I forgot to press "SAVE" when creating receiveing address.
That address does not remain in the history of "Adresses".
However, the signature can be authenticated.
And "Synchronizing..."is appiering.


What can I do this?

Have you already sent coins to that address? If so and you haven't got the private key then there's no way your going to be able to recover it. You can only access your wallet with either your password or private keys.

Where do you forgot to press Save? Are you talking about the "Receive" tab from Electrum? Because you don't actually need to save any payment request to keep the address. Every address that shows there is already yours forever.

Try to go to the Console tab (Tools -> Show Console) and enter this command: ismine('YOUR-BTC-ADDRESS')

If this returns true, the address is available in your wallet. Then, you can just go to Wallet -> Private keys -> Export, and see if you find your address + private-key there.

I solved it by reinstalling Electrum.

Actually, the line was disconnected when receiving transfer.
It seems that synchronization did not complete due to some bug of the client.

It seems that synchronization did not complete due to some bug of the client.
The"bug" most likely being that you're using a very old version of Electrum. Download and install v2.9.3 from here: https://electrum.org/#download

The older versions of Electrum often have trouble connecting to the newer Electrum servers... Plus, there have been a lot of bug fixes since 2.7.17! Wink
