Have several PC computers, all SYNC successfully. With this new Dell computer on Windows 10 I have downloaded Firefox but it has no SYNC button in its menu, so cannot initiate SYNC with my other devices. (All Firefox cloud functions are OK).

Chosen solution

Can you check the Options page to see whether you can use the "Firefox Account" panel to connect to your Sync account?

You can check that here:

  • Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options
  • Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
  • Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
  • Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it

In the left column, click "Firefox Account". Any luck?
