My Android phone recently upgraded automatically to Firefox Daylight 80.1.3. I was dismayed to find, however, that some fields that previously displayed for each bookmark in my earlier version of Firefox for Android are no longer present in the "upgraded" version of Firefox for Android. I use those fields to store important information! I can still see those fields and their data on my laptop but not on my Android. Specifically, the names of the missing fields are "Tags" and "Keywords." I've tried syncing my Android phone to my Firefox account but the missing fields do not appear. Is there any way to fix this?

I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

Hey. So ever since I upgraded to Firefox Fenix, I haven't been able to properly sync my Firefox mobile with my Firefox desktop browsers. When I head to "synced tabs" on mobile it says that I don't have anything open. I've tried logging in and out to no avail. However, on Firefox desktop I'm able to send tabs to mobile. I'm on a Samsung galaxy s8+ with Android 9.

Just like the title says, after this most recent major revamp, my firefox mobile on my android does no give me login suggestions anymore, despite autofill being enabled, nor does it recognizes the keywords for the search bookmarks I made, even though my accounts are completely synced. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it didn't work. Is there something else I can try or do I need to downgrade back to when it worked?

I accidentally added a tab to firefox sync that I do not want to appear in the synced tabs list, and now I can't remove it. I searched for a solution and found a topic from four years ago suggesting to go to Settings > Clear Private Data to find the option to clear synced tabs, but that didn't seem to work. Is there any method to remove your a synced tab or at the very least clear all sync data?

Version 80.0.1 on 2 W10 updated machines. When I use Firefox on my PC at work I always find double, triple sometimes even more links on the main root and on different sub-directories. I clean and re-organize but when at home I have the same problem and the day after at work the same again. It seems like it syncronizes from some old sessions mixing them up together instead of doing it from the last session only. Even old links that I don't use anymore are appearing 2,3 4 times. Any idea?

I have currently 5 devices connected in Firefox Sync: - Imac - Macbook Pro - 2 Ipads - 1 Android phone

Everything syncs correctly except the android phone which refuses to show the synced ipad tabs from both ipads. I can see the Imac and Macbook Pro tabs, but nothing from the ipad.

All other devices can see everything, including the tabs from the android phone.

Any help is much appreciated.

I have at least 4 (four) different sets of bookmarks which I want and I need to hold separately. Example: Professional and private use.

Because it is not possible to manage multiple firefox profiles (aka independent sets of bookmarks) with one firefox account, I created multiple firefox accounts.

Because it is not possible to create multiple firefox accounts with one email address, I created multiple email aliases (thanks god to my email provider who supports this). For each firefox account one email alias. Even for describing this situation and finally asking my quenstion here, I created a new email alias.

( Side note: Even this firefox account with which I am writing these lines right now got not registrated successful. After creating it and entering the received verfication code 1. The browser window got stuck 2. After the login Mozilla tells me, that this account is not valid (or something like that) )

Because I have to pay for each email alias and because I don't want to polute my email-alias-namespace, I delete the email alias after successful registrations and verification. This works pretty fine for all kind of forums and communities -> Except for the firefox accounts.

Because a verification code was sent to my not anymore existing email alias, when I tried to login into my private firefox acount after some time of absence, the login was declined.

Because the login was declined, I recreated the email alias to receive a new verification code.

Because the last email with a verification code sent from Mozilla to my email alias got back to Mozilla, Mozilla does NOT send me a new verification code again, instead it is asking me, if the email address (alias) is correct: IT IS CORRECT. If I choose "send again" Mozilla AGAIN tells me, that the email (previuosly sent) got back. SO IT DOES NOT EVENT TRY TO SEND A NEW VERIFICITION CODE.

This is fucking annoying.

So here are my quenstions: - How to reactivate my firefox account which got tagged by mozilla to have a wrong email address? - When will it be possible to have multiple firefox accounts with one email address? - Or, alternatively: When will it be possible to manage multiple sets of bookmarks with one firefox account?

Ever since I upgraded my Motorola phone (running Android 5.1) from Firefox 68.12esr to Firefox 80, both my computers running the desktop browser have listed both Android Firefox instances in their synced tabs list.

  • They show the two tabs open on the old version at the time of the upgrade as well as the different tab open on the new Firefox version right now.
  • This is true of both my new Windows 10 machine running Firefox 80.0.1 (see screenshot) and my older macOS El Capitan computer running Firefox 78.2.0esr. Given how different these two systems are, I would imagine this is happening to a lot of Firefox users.
  • However, only one instance of my Motorola phone appears on the "Devices & apps" list.

Additionally, at some point when my phone upgraded to Firefox 80.1.2, it deleted all my tabs open at the time and reverted to those two tabs open at the time of the upgrade. I'm afraid that will happen again if this bug is not corrected. Is there any action on my end that must be taken?
