I am running the very latest versions on both desktop and Android device (Firefox 31). [check]

I have a Firefox Sync account, and I am signed into both the desktop and the Android device. [check]

I have even tried going to the desktop and going to Tools and clicking "Sync Now". [check]

What am I possibly missing here? This is the process that I go through to seek out the desktop's open tabs on my Android device, tell me if I'm doing this wrong.

1.) Open a fresh instance of the Firefox app 2.) Open a new tab 3.) Swipe left over to the History section 4.) Tap on the five dots at the bottom next to the clock to open the tab page

The only thing I get is "Your recent tabs show up here."

This is driving me up the wall, so any ideas or a remedy would bring back my sanity. Thank you.

Today I am madder than hell !! I installed Firefox for Android yesterday on my Galaxy S3 (brand new). I attempted to Sync it with my Firefox Ver. 31 I use on my desktop box (Win 7-64) and my laptop (Win7 as well) After using it on a few of the sites I visit I decided it simply was not acceptable as many things didn't work on some site ! So I uninstalled it and wrote a bad review on Google Play.

This morning on my desktop I went to check passwords and I watched IN HORROR in the Pssword Manager window as each and everyone of my sites and passwords vanished one by one. I am dead serious people !!! Then I opened my laptop and watched the same damn thing happen there !

So the Sync I could never get going on the Android version, that was one of the reasons I uninstalled it. So... I really do not want to think that some disgruntled Mozilla employee went into my Sync account and did this intentionally because of my bad review.

As I said, I really hope it wasn't retaliation.... but if it was a problem with the Sync and because I deleted it off my phone the Sync then deleted all my passwords..... then there is HUGE.... I mean HUGE problems with Firefox Sync !!

So....before people send messages... first I have used and loved Firefox as my main browser for close to 10 years, I am an experienced computer user and do computer repairs on Windows systems at times for money. I maintain 2 antivirus and malware programs on my systems. (MS Security Essentials and Malwarebytes).

Basically what the title says, is there a "other devices" tab I'm missing somewhere? I've used Google to no avail, and I can easily sync tabs from my desktop to my Android, but there doesn't seem a way to do the reverse.

Thanks.

I have two PCs with sync configured and one android device. I can see that there is no problem with synchronizing data between PCs, but I cannot see my data on android device.

I have on both PCs ff 30 and new sync configured (I upgraded from old sync). I also tried to delete my old sync account, create a new one with same email and then configure.

I also signed up on android device to my sync account. The problem is that I cannot choose data which should be synced (positions are grey - disabled). And I don't see data from pc on android. On PC I syncrhonize bookmarks, passwords, and settings. On Android I want to syncrhonize passwords and bookmarks. What should I do to make this work?

I have two problems with the new sync. The First issue is that none of my Bookmarks or Tabs from my desktop are showing up on my Android phone nor are they working vice-versa meaning phone to desktop. The second problem is I am trying to sync my bookmarks from the Beta version of Android FF to the non-Beta Android FF which worked fine until I trued to delete several bookmarks that i don't need anymore. I'd like to delete them, but I can only delete them on the beta version and then when I go to the regular version none of the changes have been synced. If i try to delete them from the regular version nothing happens at all.

I have logged into Firefox Sync on my desktop and two mobile devices and everything seems ok, except that syncing on the mobile devices is happening at pretty long intervals. I have the "sync now" button on the toolbar of my desktop; is there something similar for mobiles in the current version? I don't see any way to force or prompt a sync, and it seems unwieldy to have to wait up to an hour (that's the longest sync interval I witnessed) to be able to access an updated list of tabs I have open on my desktop.

Presumably then my bookmarks have been synchronized, I've certainly clicked on a button to effect that Okay, on my tablet, then I logged into Firefox with the same login details. I ought then I think to see all my bookmarks on my tablet. But when I choose the bookmarks tab I only see three things: "Firefox: About your browser"; "Firefox: Customise your add-ons", and "Firefox: Support".

So, why don't I see my bookmarks, that are on my laptop? Thanks.

I inadvertently synced a particular tab between two of my devices, and I'd really like to be able to remove that link from both of them. I don't see any delete option under the "Synced Tabs" section of the browser. If there is not a way to delete it, there really should be, the same way individual bookmarks can be deleted. Is there a way I'm just not seeing?

I've noticed my open tabs do not sync automatically like it does when I move from desktop to my Android device. Example scenario to explain this better:

I'm on my desktop Firefox with several open tabs. Then I pick up my Android device (4.2 Jelly Bean) and open Firefox Android, and I go to open new tab and chose the "Sync" menu, unfortunately the tabs it shows from my desktop device are not up to date at all.

In fact the only way I've found to sync up these tabs is to go on my Android device under Sync -> Firefox Sync -> Menu Button -> Sync Now. Then my tabs update perfect, but shouldn't this just happen automatically, or at least from a "Sync Now" button right in Firefox Android? Am I completely missing something obvious?

Thanks!!

I set up Firefox sync on my phone and a few desktops. I have several RSS feeds included which sync perfectly on the desktop version of Firefox, but on my phone the feeds don't load (even though I can see the containing link).

otherwise, Firefox Mobile is great - I like it enough that I switched to Android from an iPhone!

I had downloaded the latest updated version of Firefox and I ended up syncing it to my Android phone. I went into some kind of settings dialog and accidentally changed my font and text settings and now I can't read any of my Gmail that's in my account on my desktop computer-it's too small. I'm trying to figure out how I can get into the content settings (I have the print out of what I'm to do once I get into the 'options' on the content settings page, but I don't know how to bring up the content settings menu/page). I use my desktop PC for work purposes and I can't use it with the font and text settings the way they are now. I also read where questions are being answered, but no one knows how to find the answers to the questions people are asking. How do we get to the answers that people give us about the question we have asked?

I hope you can help me ASAP so I can change what I need to ASAP. I work on my pc 24/7 for work and it's not helping me when I can't read emails and I can't fix the problem.

Thanks!

hi all

I use firefox desktop (win 7) and firefox android. Both are v47.0

I have a firefox sync account.

I don't have paired devices.

I don't use firefox sync on my desktop but am signed into my android installation and previously had been too.

Prior to upgrading to marshmallow, I carefully manually synced firefox mobile. I then did a factory reset followed by the upgrade to marshmallow (official sony release for z3 compact).

I installed firefox mobile and signed into firefox sync.

I pressed sync accounts (in android settings / accounts) and it appeared to take a while (I had a good few bookmarks, etc). I was left with sense that it was downloading what I'd previously synced.

However, when I came to check my firefox android bookmarks, only the default ones were there. I tried to manually sync 2 or 3 times more. I tried signing out and in again. I even tried switching on auto sync in desperation (I don't do this normally because I want to control what/when I sync - having my android accounts on manual sync means that I can control this easily per-app).

I must stress that I did sync firefox android prior to wiping my phone.

I simply cannot seem to recover my mobile bookmarks that I presumed were saved in the cloud using the sync process on android.

What has happened to my bookmarks and how can I recover them?


Thanks,

Gary
