synced tabs do not work

Posted

Hi all,

I've completed a new installation of Firefox on 2 PCs. I've sign-in on both of them - enabled sync - also for tabs. I get all my bookmarks synced - but Open Tabs are not synced.

I can see in the "Synced Tabs" sidebar the other PC name with the message "no open tabs"

I have also installed the app on my android - I couldn't see any synced tabs - although the name of the phone was showing in the side bar "Synced Tabs" on both PCs - again with the message "no open tabs"

about:sync-log do not show any new relevant log file - all files or old and not giving any clue about that problem

You can open about:sync-log via the location bar to see if there is a recent log available. You can upload a recent log if the log is too big to put in a reply.

UPDATE:

well, I Think I know now why it is not working - It is simply slow - I mean VERY SLOW !!

I've opened a website on my phone and after 15 minutes it showed on my PC "Synced Tabs"long after I have already closed that tab...

Weird - Any one have advice regarding that behavior ?
