I was using Gmail but have tried to get away from Gmail. I still have it because of play store but it seems to stick with most of what I am doing. I think I chopped it down but with WiFi on it's hard to get away. I got updates off unless it's something trusted and there is far and few between.

Thanks for all the help

New Firefox for Android, former quick send to device feature

Got the latest version of Firefox for Android on the last Google Play App update.

The Share / send to device (using sync) feature has changed, especially when using it from a Share to 'out of Firefox'.

Before it was possible to send an URL directly to a Firefox on my desktop without opening the page on the Android platform and it was extremely useful.

Since the new update, it opens the page first loading the full Firefox and then you can send to a Firefox on a desktop computer... Which is long and annoying.

How can I restore the former behavior Share>Firefox send to device?

I'm fairly certain I discovered what's going on with the Firefox sync. It's not that it isn't working properly, it's that the mobile website you're viewing is a different address than the desktop site. For example, if I go to Kohl's on my desktop, the address is https://www.kohls.com. If I visit the site on mobile,it's https://m.kohls.com. Apparently the two sites are also entirely different, in that your desktop credentials won't work with the mobile site. Why that is I do not know, but this is not the first time I've discovered this problem with this, as well as other websites. The conclusion here is that this is not a Firefox problem, but rather a problem between some disparate websites which are not properly sharing login information between the desktop and mobile versions, and so if you run into this issue the only thing you can do is contact the owner of the website to let them know. It's also possible that this is simply a security feature and that you have to authorize mobile access, but of course the only way to find out is to ask. Enjoy the rest of your memorial day weekend.

I can turn on sync between Firefox Preview and Firefox Desktop. Bookmarks and History works great. But I use a lot the Android's "Share" to send links to my Firefox Desktop and "Send tab to Device" to send links back to the phone, and now these aren't working. I've uninstalled Firefox for Android, cleaned my Devices list and re-signed/synced multiple times using both the user pwd and the QR scan.

Hi. I use Firefox on multiple devices/platforms, and I've not had problems with sync before, but I'm not sure what I wanted is possible.

Specifically on my old Android phone I used Firefox beta. But this phone died a few days ago. I got a new Android phone and installed Firefox beta, signed into my account and did sync.

Bookmarks and history seem to have synced. But I was wanting - top sites - open tabs - collections to be synced from my old phone.

Are these not included in the synch process? Or is the fact my old phone died the problem?

Thanks in advance.
