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...

Hello. I tried to carry my opened tabs from old device firefox to the new one's firefox. I logged in on both devices, I indicated to sync tabs and bookmarks, then tapped "sync now". Then I found bookmarks from my old device on new one, but not tabs. What I do wrong? Or may be I understand wrong this function of sync, while I expect just carry my all tabs at once?

Firefox for Android doesn't autofill saved/synced paswords since installing and uninstalling Lockwise app

Firefox sync was working on all my devices as my logins and passwords were perfectly synced. The problem started when I was offered to install the Lockwise app on Android. Where logins were available in the Firefox for Android app they wouldn't sync with the Lockwise app, the syncing went in an infinite loop and did not sync anything. Reinstalling or rebooting did not help. From this moment Firefox for Android offered to fill in the passwords from the Lockwise app, but since there were no passwords synced, there were none to fill. So I decided to uninstall the Lockwise app and go back to Google Autofill service for my global Android password management. But in the Firefox for Android app (which I use the most) I still like to use the build-in Firefox Sync autofill feature like I used to before installing the Lockwise app. Firefox for Android does not offer to fill in any password information anymore. When I look in Tools > Logins all my passwords are there, perfectly synced.

After some research I checked if the following about:config booleans were enabled: and yes they were. signon.autofillForms signon.autofillForms.autocompleteOff signon.autofillForms.http

Firefox for Android version: 68.2.0

I am logged in on both my laptop (windows 8) and android, using my email. I want to sync my tabs so that I can open the same page on my phone and my laptop. I have three tabs open on my android, I go to firefox desktop, click the three lines in the top right corner, click library, click synced tabs, there is nothing there but "view synced tabs sidebar" (which is empty), "manage devices" (when I click it opens a blank page), and "sync now" (nothing happens when I click this). In my settings, under connected services, I see both my desktop and my android device, so it is recognizing that I am logged in to both places. Somehow I managed to migrate my bookmarks from my laptop to my phone, but it doesn't update when I add anything new (should it? I can't find a 'sync bookmarks' button). If it's important, I had to sign in on my phone with my email address, as the QR code on my laptop doesn't show up, instead says "pairing unsuccessful, try again". Nothing changes when I click this. Please help, this is very frustrating and I can't find anything that will explain why this is happening or what I'm doing wrong.

Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

Hi. Nowhere can I find a place to comment on the update. I am writing this in the hope that Technical Support will read this and will implement improvements in the future.

I update Firefox to version 79.0.5 on Android. The question is whether it is possible to restore this sharing in some options or do I just have to install an earlier version for it to work?

Before the update, when I shared any page from any browser, I had the option to "share to device" without having to launch the page on Firefox. It helped a lot, flipping the pages to the computer for reading later. Now, this option is unavailable.

Now, in the share menu I only have a "Firefox" icon and the page opens in my browser where I need to find the share icon and then find my device. It takes much more time and is less intuitive. The second thing, previously, the choice of the device was easier to read because the entire name was displayed. Now there is only the beginning part of the name.

I made a screen of what it looked like before (white theme) and now (black theme). Best regards.

Hello everybody,

I hope you're doing well in theses days, and your health is good ! A few months ago, I installed with success my own Firefox sync server. It is working like a charm with both desktop Windows and Linux version, but it doesn't work with Android version. I discovered that the client try to reach a bad URL (see my preceding post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288028). Moreover, with the last version, we can't modify anymore the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri In the Nightly version, this parameter isn't present. Have we any chance to use Firefox android version with a custom sync server ? Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Hello,

Following a change of telephone, the bookmarks do not synchronize on Android. I am correctly logged into my account on my computer and on my smartphone. I tried the connection by the email address and by the QR code without success of synchronisation.

Do you have any solution?

Thank you.

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

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.
