I can't add my computer to my Firefox sync.

Posted

I can't add my computer to my Firefox sync. When I get on Firefox on my Android device (the device that does have my Firefox sync) I am told to "tap the Set up Firefox Sync button on the Firefox Start page." They even show a screenshot so I know what I'm looking for, however, this button does not exist on my Firefox for Android. I've looked all over the start page for it & tried every other means I can think of to get to the sync but it all boils back to tapping this button that I don't have. I would appreciate any help I can get.

hello, please try to pair the two devices like this:

  1. on your android phone go into the system's settings app and into accounts & synchronisation (might be worded slightly different on various android devices), go to firefox sync & tap on pair a device.
  2. 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.

Thank you so much. I thought I already did this but it turns out I was going to different settings for Firefox that was only for permission to sync on the device but not adding another device.
