How do you sync history which was created before sync was enabled?

Posted

I recently saw that Firefox was available on iOS so I immediately switched as all my desktop browsing is in Firefox. I set up sync as well as I think I can but I am having a problem. On iOS I am unable to view history items which were created on the desktop before sync was enabled. Any web pages I view now show up just fine using sync, but none of my older history which would be very useful to be able to search. Is there any way currently for the entire history to be synced and not just new entries?

Hi grahamrigs

You asked "Is there any way currently for the entire history to be synced and not just new entries? "

Unfortunately I don't think there is. Your tabs are synced so maybe if you open those tabs from your history on desktop that might be a suitable workaround.

Cheers!
