I have Firefox multi containers added to two Windows 10 laptops. Everything except multi containers is syncing. The last laptop I added after resetting that computer, updating Windows, and reinstalling Firefox. That last FF installation is showing the default containers. I use a lot of containers so would rather not set them up again. I have reinstalled FF a couple of times on the latest computer but didn't solve it. Suggestions please?

I have "sync: addons" enabled in my sync settings (on all relevant devices).

1. Neither uBlock Origin nor its settings appeared on my Android tablet (I can't recall if this worked on my other computer, but I'm 90% sure it did). Does this not work for syncing between mobile and Linux browsers (two Ubuntu machines)?

2. I tried using uBlock Origin's "Enable cloud storage support" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Cloud-storage) to move my site whitelist, but it appears to have a different bucket across my Linux and Android devices. I turned it off again after attempting to sync both (Firefox sync) and then get uBlock Origin to read its settings from there.

3. Now that I've migrated my settings manually, I no longer need the cloud sync data from uBlock Origin. Unfortunately, there's no apparent setting in my browser's (either Ubuntu or Android) Account menu to view or edit synced data. Is some amount of unnecessary data now floating there forever, unable to be accessed?

4. If there IS a method to view the contents of sync, how do I find it? Back when I used Chrome, it had a nasty habit of duplicating stuff at the server and occasionally pushing it back to duplicate all my bookmarks. I'd like to see what I've got stored and what (if any) storage quota I'm near. I have an absurd amount of stuff I need to keep synchronized between machines and I'd like warning if I'm using it inefficiently (see: undeletable data from that addon, small though it is) or if there are duplicate entries.

Hello,

I'm using firefox sync with an own sync server.

Since a few weeks the synchronization of tabs doesn't work right. I use five devices. On my Macbook, the iPhone and the iPad mini I can see and reach the tab-sync of these three devices.

On another iPad and an Linux-PC, wich I added at last, I can see the tab-sync of all five devices.

How can I force the first three devices to sync the tabs of all five devices? I did alread several steps of testing and trying, like manual synchronization or remove and adding again all devices to the account.

It would be great to find some help! Thanks in advance and best regards - Daniel

I can’t see my bookmarks from PC in any of my other devices. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox in all of them. I have logged in with the same Firefox account in all of them. I’ve clicked and touched the buttom SYNC NOW in all of them. Sync runs, spins for some seconds and stops. However no bookmarks appear. I am trying to do that for more than a year. What else am I supposed to do?

I’m having trouble with Firefox Sync on my Pixel 4a. My iPhone and iPad can see the synced tabs that are open on my Pixel, but my Pixel can’t see any synced tabs from my other devices. I have tried signing out and signing back into my Firefox account but that hasn’t helped.
