How can i set my new mobile password manager for my android phone to copy all my passwords from my desktop's firefox? Right now, i notice there are only about 8 listed passwords. But my desktop's saved password manager has about 50 listed. This makes me think that the android app is only choosing to remember what i saved directly with my android. I want it to grab all my saved passwords from my desktop too. I tried rechecking my firefox sync options, but only confirmed that i do have that set to automatically sync all my data (including passwords.)

Does it help if you set a Master Password on all connected devices?
If you have Master Password turned on on your Android device, Sync won't be able to sync your passwords to it. (Long story.)
You can turn off Master Password, force a Sync in Settings, and turn it back on if that's the case.
Hi r, thanks so much for reply. But ... i do not have master pwd turned on android. I already have it set to sync all.
Also, I find i cannot reply to you with android by clicking on the emailed link! I had to actually start up my computer (desktop) to reply there. Any idea why? Thanks s
I found I have to tap the "Menu" (three horizontal lines in a square) button in the mobile view, and sign in before I'm able to reply from Firefox on Android.
Now that you're on your desktop: try unchecking Passwords in Sync preferences, wait a few seconds, then re-check it. Then on your phone, open Android's Settings app, Accounts & sync, choose your Firefox Sync account, then Menu > Sync Now.
Wow okay i did the first one successfully so far....whew! I had to dig ditches to recall what my username/ password was!!! Lol but thanx so much, progress sloooooowly but surely! Next will try the sync suggestions, will keep u ppsted... thankss!!!
