I can not get Firefox on my Android (OnePlus 6) to sync. After logging into my firefox account it tells me to open firefox on another connected device to finish the setup. Unfortunately there are no options appearing in Firefox on any of my other devices. What can I try? Thank you!

Hi,

After a factory reset i did for my tablet i cant synchronize my bookmarks anymore. I definitely synched them b4. The reset was done a few times over the last months too and it always worked. It seems like they are just gone.

B4 i reset my tablet i deleted the account via the option in android.

There was already a similar problem in this forum. Answer was: sync is not a backup option and bookmarks might be lost. So maybe i was just lucky the other times it worked anyway.

Im using this account only with mobile devices.

My questions:

1) Is it true that synced bookmarks might be gone?

2) Is there a way to check if the bookmarks are still saved somewhere in my Firefox account?

3) Is there a way to save bookmarks on Android only?

I clicked on an mp3 link that I wanted to download. A dialog box popped up that asked if I wanted to handle mp3s with Google Play Music. I decided to try it, but accidentally told it to ALWAYS open with GPM. I have looked everywhere for how to get Firefox on Android to ask me or just download the file.

Is there a way to get ff android to follow the page 'color' on the navigation bar. Ditto for the android navigation bar (I believe the app can determine the system navigation bar color)

This will help blinding contrast with a dark website and bright top (ff main bar) and bottom (android navigation bar) screen

The new Android update has taken away the ability to auto complete forms on webpages that are filled in regularly.

The data is saved on the desktop version, I am logged into the same account and yet it will not complete or suggest a item to auto complete like it used to.

How do I get that feature back?

really weird, i use my phone for a ph. texts and youtube. period. I have been constantly having to reset the settings on all my devices since google included the "optional" covid tracking service on my devices during a recent upgrade. im not suggesting my question is a result. just pointing it out that I have to go thru my settings regularly and unless i hit something by mistake there is no way i copied a very personal text to my son onto a web page. this one was open in firefox with a couple other tabs i left open. im signed in on a different device cause i wanted to figure this out before doing anything with my phone. heres a pic i took of screen.

anyone have an idea of what may have caused this? thanks
