Pair Firefox Sync on Android with new computer

Posted

On my PC I clicked "Set Up Sync" and then "I Have an Account" ans it asks to enter the code on my other device. So I went onto my Android Samsung Galaxy Nexus and opened Firefox.

Went to the home screen and there is not Sync button. Only; Top sites, Your tabs from last time, Add-ons for your Firefox, and Synced Tabs.

Going to More -> Settings -> Sync -> Account with Firefox Sync. It only shows an option to not sync and says when it last synced. The more only shows; Sync now, remove account and help.

Where do I enter the code on my Android so I can set up Firefox Sync on my PC?

Open up Firefox and go into the settings menu. From the select the option of sync. That should open up a prompt to set up sync on your Firefox device. Here is a great support article as well. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-sync-share-bookmarks-and-more-with-firefox-mobile?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=sync-firefox-between-desktop-and-mobile

I know that and that's what I said. Your article is the wrong way around and I've done that like a billion years ago. I want to go from android sync to pc.

The reverse is not possible. To set up a new PC you would need your user name, password and Sync key or another PC that is set up on your sync account.

WOW This is the most confusing, repetitive, and time intensive process I have ever done with FF. I have synch codes on both devices now and nowhere to put them. Does it work? Will this show up as a synch option on my droid phone? (home >setings > Accounts and Synch)
