I am migrating to a new phone. WhatsApp offered firefox as an option for storing its passkey. That took me to the connection and synchronisation process which the new phone said had failed. However all my tabs and other passwords appear to be syncing. Now selecting firefox to store the WhatsApp passkey takes me back to the failure page every time. Any idea how to restart the passkey addition to firefox process? WhatsApp won't work whilst I'm hung up in limbo between the two apps.

So, I have 3 devices I have sync turned on, two laptops, and android phone. Laptops are where I do most of my actual work work, but the phone is where I get ideas and orders and things like that from, so where I do a lot of that stuff from. Now, I know how to open all on the laptops, but, I have only found a way to do this one tab at a time on android.

and I have been slowly opening the tabs one at a time, but i have around 840 tabs left to open.

I know this will severely slow the phone down for a while, while it attempts to do this, but I am more than willing to set my phone down over night for this..

I have synced my android tablet to my linux pc, but when i try to open the desktop bookmarks folder, I get a message saying I can't edit default folders. I know it's synced, because when I search bookmarks for a bookmark that I know to be on my pc, it comes up. The problem is that the folder will not open.

I have tried reinstalling. I don't know what else to try.

I am trying to move all the synced tabs brought in from android chrome and Firefox pc into the current active tabs I have on Firefox android.

I've only been able to get 1 at a time to move over, but I have well over a hundred open in putting the two other browsers together..

Everything I've been able to look up about it only deals either the syncing part.


And, is there a way to have am active sync? As in, I open a tab in Firefox on laptop, it opens that tab on my Firefox mobile? And vice versa.

Hey,

I had to replace my Android phone and send the old one in. I had the google cloud backup activated + used the transfer data and apps function when migrating (Android to Android). However, it seems like my bookmarks are gone, I guess there is no way to get them back. Is this correct behavior?

I understand that there is Firefox sync and save feature (which I use on my personal device). However my understanding was that migrating phones with the "copy apps & data" function should migrate things seamless without having to worry about custom logins in each app. Did I do something wrong? Or is this understanding wrong? If so, would this be different in ios (this was a very painful experience that I don't want to repeat)?

Thanks for your help & sorry if this is only partially Firefox specific and partially about my general understanding.

Hi All,

On desktop I have uBlock Origin and in the Sync list option "add ons" it ticked.

On Android I can't see "add ons" in the Sync list option and if I go to the add ons settings I can only see the Recommended. uBlock Origin is listed but it looks like I have to install it again on Android, it is not automatically there.

Is this normal? Do I have to reinstall it?

Thanks
