I've been trying to setup sync between Firefox on my new Note 20 Ultra and my laptop and I keep failing at step #7.

Sync Setup process as I understand it:

  1. 1. Login to Firefox on both smartphone and in desktop device
  2. 2. From Firefox in smartphone go to Settings -> Synced Tabs then click "Sign into sync"
  3. 3. On desktop device, go to firefox.com/pair
  4. 4. On the Firefox pairing site, click "Show Code"
  5. 5. On smartphone, click "Ready to scan" then scan the QR code on your desktop with your smartphone
  6. 6. On smartphone, confirm that the information listed for the device you're trying to sync with is correct and click "Confirm pairing"
  7. 7. On your desktop device a page opens that states, "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides".

And here is where I hit the snag. I don't understand what authentication app it wants me to use or where this 6-digit security code is supposed to come from. I have used Lockwise, I have it installed on my Note and am logged in, but I don't receive any sort of notification on my phone or on my laptop telling me what security code I'm supposed to use.

Additionally, I have tried using the email method instead of the QR code scanning method to sync and I still end up at a dead-end in the exact same spot in the process. Please help.

Hi,

I am an avid user of Firefox on Windows/Linux/Android. The password saving/auto-filling works great on my Windows and Linux devices. I like that the master password allows me to authenticate before any user credentials are filled in. I did however notice that on my Android Phone, there's no way to force authentication when filling in user credentials. I consider this a great privacy risk, considering that if anyone were to get access to my phone, they would without any hassle get access to a bunch of my accounts. I checked in the settings, and I cannot find a setting for it anywhere.

I am running the latest version of Firefox from Google Play. Firefox version: 84.1.4 (Build #2015785883) Phone: Samsung S10 running Android 10

Thank you.

good morning, on my new smartphone, NOKIA 5.1 PLUS with android 10 security patch October 2020, I have installed Firefox (as previously on all other smartphones). I'm having a problem with downloading documents from sites (any type of PDF-JPG-ZIP .... etc). The downloads start but then do not download anything (you can see the download arrow at the top of the smartphone). Shortly after he goes wrong. I tried to uninstall and reinstall without solving. You can help me? thanks Federico
