The tabs, history, and bookmarks are not syncing on my Android device. Whenever I try to sync my tabs, it just says "Syncing..." but nothing happens. It also asks me to enable tab syncing but I can't enable it because it's greyed out. When I try to send tabs from my Android to my PC, it says offline even though I have a strong internet connection. When I check my connected devices on my PC, it recognizes that my Android is signed in. It just won't sync.

Things that I've tried: - Signing out then signing in again on the device - Uninstalling then reinstalling firefox on my Android - Switching from mobile data to wifi

None of these have worked. This is a firefox feature that I've been using for a while and I rely on it quite a lot so it would be great if someone could help me with this. Thanks!

I am currently using Firefox 95.2.0 on Android 12 system with my Pixel 6. I did not have any issue with the previous version of Android, but immediately after I got Pixel 6 and brand new Android 12, Firefox crashes quite often when I scroll down a page.

I found that it is less frequent recently after update, but it still happens, and even make the phone restart. I am not sure it is Pixel's problem, but Firefox is the only app that makes constant crashing for me.

I read this thread: LINK that arose 8 month ago, and is this problem still not resolved? It says that Android 12's jelly overscroll effect crashes with Firefox's scrolling effect. I could not try this solution because I cannot use about:config.

I usually view websites in landscape. However, when switching between portrait and landscape, firefox seems to refresh the page. This is a problem between browsing sessions, where I just want to continue where I was at. I may be 1/2 way down a page, exit the browser, come back to it a couple of hours later.

The app will start in portrait and then change to landscape. During this process, the page refreshes twice and when it finishes reloading, I will be on a different position on the page and have to find my way back to where I was reading.

So... I want to force firefox in landscape mode to prevent this problem. However: 1. There seems to be no menu item to allow this. 2. A web search says this is available in about:config, but about:config seems to have been disabled a couple of years ago.

Can anyone help with how to force Firefox for Android in landscape?

Hi all,

A few days ago my phone got stolen and with that thousands of Firefox bookmarks.

IF I hadn't had a tablet with which I sync those bookmarks that is, so all is good. But...

I'm planning to get rid of that very tablet and then won't have an other device to sync with any longer. I think that means that if my phone gets stolen next time I have to say goodbye to all Firefox bookmarks as well. But since society is more and more turning into single device use with smartphones becoming so powerful, is there really no way to deal with this? Can Firefox really be the last company on Earth without the ability to back up settings and bookmarks in the cloud? I mean, I'm getting crazy that every single app has it's own cloud backup, but that's still a LOT better than not having the possibility at all - especially for a security/privacy minded company like Mozilla that's... well... crazy...

My question to avoid total failure next time: Is there ANY way I can have those bookmarks exported and/or automatically backed up? Or can I somehow sync them with a non-existing device and then sync back a week later when I have a new phone?

I'm truly struggling with this one as I don't want to part with Firefox after 1.5 decades. However, in the end my bookmarks are more important to me than my browser, so if I HAVE to move on to stay secure then I'm afraid I will have to go that road... :-(

Your help is much appreciated!

I enjoy playing Bridge and use a site called Bridge Club Live. I can log in fine but when i go to the playing page, it loads incorrectly and the writing is enormous, with only a tiny part of the screen shown. I have tried to resize to no avail. The technical people at BCL have no idea why its doing this and neither have I. Can anyone suggest anything? I have the latest Firefox Browser and it works fine on Chrome but I'd much rather use Firefox. I am using a Samsung tablet. Hope someone can help. thank you.

I have tried to upload a photo but the upload just keeps going round and round and never finishes.
