Hi,

I'm using Firefox for all my devices. I activated synchronization of all items from all devices. But the History is not synchronized between devices. Meaning, from my Windows Firefox, I'm not able to see the history from my Android device, and vis versa.

I'm using last versions of FF from all my devices (I always update to last version when one is available).

Is there something I'm missing?

Many thanks for your help.

Best regards,

I accidentally deleted my browser history on my computer, but I have it synced to my phone. I unsynced browser history and as of right now my phone still has all of my browser history. Will this stay there or will all the content that initally came from my computer be deleted? I already clicked 'synchrosnise now' after unsyncing my computer, and it hasn't seemed to make a difference.

Furthermore, if i end up syncing my browser history again between the two devices, will all of that history be deleted?

The instructions on the screen (see attachment) bear no relationship to what appears in Firefox on my iphone - Sign in to Synchronise is not in the menu So I can't find "ready to scan".

If I scan with the scanner in the Firefox top corner I get told I must pair from within the App - where I thought I was.

I tried Manual Sync as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-logins-firefox-ios but again screen didn't look like that (see what I was supposed to see attached) - account name not at top - I was signed in - and no sync circle.

Baffled and frustrated.

Used to work beautifully.

My mobile bookmarks have gone missing. I think the reason is that I bought a new iPad and transferred everything over to the new one automatically using the Apple transfer feature. My bookmarks made it over to the new iPad, but the mobile ones did not...and were then gone from my old iPad as well.

One clue: on the new iPad, the folder at the top is now called 'desktop bookmarks.' Anyway, all of the advice about mobile bookmarks on this site entails navigating to the profile on a desktop for a prior version...which is not possible on an iPad. Help getting the bookmarks back would be most welcome!

My laptop needed a refresh and all data needed to be erased. Thinking Firefox has synced all my bookmarks and settings I happily reset my laptop but now I just installed Firefox again and logged in but there is no settings, no bookmark! What happened to the bookmarks? Is syncing really reliable?

Can somebody sane please explain to me why firefox developers haven't implemented a smooth sync when there are Master Password's involved?

I use firefox in my desktop and in my phone and I can't get the passwords to sync due to my desktop having a master password (which firefox itself proposes to have set so that my passwords are safe) and Android not having that and so it can't decrypt the desktop passwords.

How difficult it is to make syncing between Desktop and Android firefoxes smooth when you have set a master password for the desktop version?

Even if FF for Android is not using a Master Password why doesn't desktop FF ask for the master password, the proceed to decrypt the passwords in the background and then using sync (which as mozilla says transmits passwords in encrypted form) send them to the mozilla servers? I mean even if I haven't set a Master Passowrd the passwords submitted to Mozilla servers during syncing are always stored decrypted in some way right?

Hello! I've been using Firefox since forever but never thought about using the sync feature until now. On laptop, when I press "sync now", a little spinning wheel appears for some seconds, then disappears. I take this means it has synced. On my android phone (Android 10 - phone's a Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite), however, I seem to have encountered a bug. I connected the two devices together using the QR code and following the instructions, and in fact the phone appears in the connected devices on the laptop version of Firefox. However, when I open Firefox on Android and go to my Account Settings, under "Synchronise now" it says "Last synchronised: never", and tapping it prompts absolutely nothing. No animation, no popup, no phone lagging, no sign it has received any command. If I try going in the synced tabs section (near the private tabs one), there is a big Sync button on the bottom right - pressing it causes it to say "Synchronising..." for about 5 minutes or more, but once it's done, nothing happens, and it keeps saying last sync was never. If possible I'd like not to re-install the app as I have a lot of tabs that I don't want to currently lose.

Hello there,

I have a problem with firefox sync. I moved to Firefox from Opera and moved the passwords to the account but it does not sync with Android. I do have lots of passwords saved to the account but firefox sync does not sync them on my device. I tried clearing cache, reinstalling, relogin, all 3 at once, even restarting the phone in between but still no password is synced.

I've searched and read several "fixes" for this problem, but they either don't make sense, are old, or don't work.

I have enabled sync on both devices. I have selected logins to be synced on both devices. I am not using primary password on either device. Still, I cannot get my passwords to show up in my android device.

Please help and keep it simple, because some of the answers elsewhere made no sense to me.

This issue is a copy of an exact same question from [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1372174|here]. The solution choosen is not a solution but a hack, and I am still facing the issue of passwords not getting synced between desktop and my Android device.

I am using Firefox on an amazon fire HD 10 tablet. The When I try to sync, a new tab opens and the activity indicator spins but nothing ever syncs or logs in to my account. I checked and triple checked all the settings and everything is setup to allow syncing but it acts as though amazon is blocking it from logging in.

Is there anything I can do to fix this issue.
