There is no import option for Firefox for Android. Profiles are not in a user accessible location unless you have a rooted phone. In addition the file formats used by desktop Firefox and Firefox for Android are different.

Hi fuatcan, you can restore the items on a new device by copying the user profile and restoring it into a new profile folder.

  1. On the new device create a new profile
  2. and put the items in the newly created profile folder

Recovering important data from an old profile will show details on how to recover this information.

"There is no import option for Firefox for Android"

sorry kbrosnan,

but this is not an answer!

You just repeat a fact known to OP, people and me therefore it can't be the chosen solution either.

I wanted to migrate from PC to Android tab.

Please answer this simple question:

Why does Mozilla coerce me into SYNC hence depriving me from a simple import routine for its own format (JSON) which had been around for donkeys years?

Till then I refrain from an installation.

Thanx.
