I just got a new iPad and was excited to start using Firefox on it. To my disappointment, for some reason Sync is not working. When I go to Firefox Settings on the iPad, below "synchronize" it shows "2020-06-20 23:05:56" as the previous sync date. This does not change after I tap on it to sync. For a little while it spins the arrows and says "Synchronizing..." (rough translation as I have language set to Finnish) and then it just shows the same date again.
It has not synced my newest bookmarks from my desktop or Firefox on my Android phone and if I send tabs to the iPad, they never arrive. The curious part is that I got the device on 25th of June, so I haven't even used it on the 20th, which is the previous sync date. It has synced my older bookmarks, but doesn't sync any of the new ones I make. Also when I try to access my (synced) credentials and passwords it just loads forever.
When I go to my Firefox account details on my desktop and view the connected devices, it shows that last activity on the iPad was a few seconds ago. If I change the device name from the iPad, it updates in the list.
The Firefox version on the iPad is 27.0 (18428) and iPadOS version is 13.5.1 which is the latest version. I do not have any restrictions on my network that I know of, I don't use a VPN or proxy and I even enabled background updates for the Firefox app without any help. I tried logging out of Firefox Sync but after logging in I got the same last sync date.
I wonder if this is a bug or if something has gone wrong in my Firefox account.
