I can login to post in this Demoncrat filthy forum, but I can't login into Firefox Sync in Android because it says my account is blocked. Crappy management, crappy software.

We have not kidnapped your account.

At the top of the Settings option in the Firefox for Android menu, do you see the option to "turn on sync"?

Helpful?

Yes, I do see the "Sign to sync" option. I believe also your CEO is too busy defending censorship and deplatformization. And now I'm stuck in work, needing my bookmarks.

If you select that option and choose to sign in by email you will be walked through the process.

Yes, I do see the mobile device under connected accounts, but the device does not sync.

Okay. If you remove that device from your account and in Android, open the Android Settings app, select Applications and clear data from Firefox for Android. This will take Firefox for Android back to a "first run state" and remove any personal data you have in it.

Wait 24 hours (should not take that long, but I am throwing in some margin), then in Firefox for Android, connect to your account (using email, not the QR code) using the same Firefox Account credentials as if it is a new device.

I already did that. In fact, I uninstalled Firefox just by caution, and installed again. I glad you mentioned QR Code, because it doesnt work too. I will do what you suggest, but this is just a joke.
