Feature Request: Synchronize Firefox Multi-Account Containers with Firefox Account so I can use same settings on home and work computers

Posted

As far as I can tell, synchronizing my Multi-Account Containers data is a manual process. I would like an automated way to keep my home and work computers synchronized with the same settings using my Firefox Account. (I haven't set it up at home yet, but when I do, it will be hard to keep them in sync.) I also worry that if I'm only using one computer and it dies, I'll lose all the custom settings I've created for Multi-Account Containers.

We spend so much effort putting specific websites in specific containers, that it is a pity to lose that info, or to have to manually synchronize it to multiple computers.

Never mind. Found the discussions on GitHub, as well as the discussion in Bugzilla. Looks like this is a scenario that Firefox is just ignoring a feature request that would be incredibly useful.
