Issue with Sync on PCs with same account and general speed of sync

Hi team, have reviewed few thread on Sync issue, but none was explicitly touching the issue I have. Running latest version on different PCs ( both Win10), using same account, I can't "send to" tabs among them. They are simply not in mutual device list. No problem to see mobile (Android here) devices in same account.

So, is this a recognized issue on PC with same account? I may just guest about HTTP "user-agent", same "display name" in Sync account and similar stuff in possible conflict, but better leave this on IT pros.


General issue is with speed of sync. If I open a tab, sync the device, then send to other device, sync that other too... and it's not instant there, even not after minutes. What could this be?

Though two questions, I thank for every reactions to them. BR Peter

Did you look at this site yet:

Firefox Sync https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox/sync

Yes, of course... Simply this sync fails heavily that makes so many ppl post it. Possibly time to look at chrome and its sync provided I don't run any super FF specific extensions... Just a strong habit of the past sticking with FF :-)

Is there a reason for the old version of Firefox? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release I run about 6 version of Firefox, sync most of them and see no issues with the speed of sync. see old screenshot Nightly is my daily driver and I always snyc with 98.0.2 before my daily update of Nightly.

How do you come I stick with some old version?... I think this core feature should work since it's inception, no matter which versions have emerge since then ..

Just a question. Can you try another version to see if you have the same issue.
