Why does Firefox on Android phone sometimes not prefill login form at paypal?

bold textI have two devices. A mac and Android phone, both running firefox. Both are logged into the same account and kept in sync.

So how come without making any changes I sometimes find my phone not filling in the login form for paypal? Usually it is fine, but sometimes it is as if it forgets what it knows. The phone says it just synced with my account. If it happens when I am away home, I cannot login to paypal. How can this happen?

The problem was that the logins recorded using my PC are for paypal.com. On my phone, the login that seems the same is for www.paypal.com. The login info did not know to use the same credentials regardless of whether the url starts with www or now.

Can I understand that the mobile Firefox account information is not synchronized with the MAC account information in time
