I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.

hello all- When Sync job cycles, what is hierarchy determining which component version (Bookmarks, logins, etc) is applied to profiles on other computers?

Two computers, A and B. Bookmark file on A last revised two days ago. Bookmark file on B last revised 60 days ago. I need all profile components on B to match A. Essentially B is updated to A's version.

How does synch determine which version is the 'Master' used to overwrite the versions on other computers?

I saw in another thread that Synch uses latest modification date to set priority. This would seem to be the most logical criterion. But I want to be sure before cycling Sync.

(Spent 10 minutes searching threads before posting this question. There were some oblique references hinting at prioritization, but not an absolute statement describing prioritization.) thanks!

Hey Guys,

I am having trouble trying to send tabs between my PC, and my iPhone. I can successfully send a tab from my PC, however, when I attempt to send a tab from my iPhone, it won't show up on my PC.

Things I've tried; - Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox for PC. - Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox for iPhone. - Signing out then back in on both devices.

Whatever I try, I can only manage to send tabs from the PC to iPhone and not the other way around. When I manually sync from PC, I can (sometimes) see what tabs are open on my phone. I am out of ideas.

Build Versions; PC: 96.0.2 (64-bit) iOS: Firefox Daylight 96.0 (7403)
