How may I view a list of all my sync devices

Posted

I can successfully add and remove devices from my sync account, but there seems to be no option to show a list of all my synced devices.

Unfortunately, there is no "standard" method of doing this, more of a workaround. If you are syncing tabs, you can enter about:sync-tabs in the location bar or Firefox button --> history --> tabs from other devices. I just tested this with the new Firefox sync in Aurora and couldn't find a more practical method either.

Shawn,

Thank you for your very helpful message. The work around gives me the information that I want, but it is astonishing to me that a software designer would set up any kind of database without providing the facility to view what is stored there.

Kind regards Mike

Not a question but I agree with Mike. It's difficult to believe we can't view the devices or delete devices in a more fluid manner. Did you not think people would want this options? You'd think someone in IT would have thought of this. Maybe you should hire some non-techie people to use your applications before you set them on the public. I'm beginning to regret doing this and I'm unsure if I am going to sync to my Android. I guess I'll have to see how this goes. Thank you Barbara
