hello tom6720, on your android phone go into the system's settings app & into accounts & synchronisation (might be worded slightly different on different android devices), go to firefox sync & tap on pair a device.

on your desktop go to firefox > options > sync > set up firefox sync > i have an account which will show you a 3x4 character code that you'll have to enter into your android device in order to complete the process.
