The tabs, history, and bookmarks are not syncing on my Android device. Whenever I try to sync my tabs, it just says "Syncing..." but nothing happens. It also asks me to enable tab syncing but I can't enable it because it's greyed out. When I try to send tabs from my Android to my PC, it says offline even though I have a strong internet connection. When I check my connected devices on my PC, it recognizes that my Android is signed in. It just won't sync.

Things that I've tried: - Signing out then signing in again on the device - Uninstalling then reinstalling firefox on my Android - Switching from mobile data to wifi

None of these have worked. This is a firefox feature that I've been using for a while and I rely on it quite a lot so it would be great if someone could help me with this. Thanks!

(The following is translated by Google Translate) I am an Android user. In the web page, click the password input box, the web page will automatically enlarge and automatically move the password input box to the center of the screen. Firstly, I do not like this design. Secondly, there are some problems with the automatic enlargement of the web page, for example, the web page will be fixed after enlargement and cannot be narrow, then,the page automatically enlarge, causing 1Password's floating window to misplace,(1password is a password manager),When you click the password input box,1password's floating window will appear,However, at this time, the web page of Firefox will automatically enlarge when entering the password,and automatically center the password box,but the floating window of 1password won't move, and it remains in place,and then there was a problem. In addition to these two problems, there is another small problem,All in all, I don't like this design, not only because I don't like it, but also because it has many problems.Therefore,I hope that we can turn off the automatic enlargement of the webpage, turn off automatic center the password box on the screen

After reading several questions and concerns regarding getting the Bookmarks folder onto the home page in Firefox for Android, some over a year ago, I am frustrated to say the least that nothing has changed or been addressed at all. It is so frustrating and time consuming to open a new tab to then have to hit the back button to be able to then select the menu button, then bookmarks, then the folder, then the bookmark. Customization options are really not really helpful options. Maybe an option in the Open Screen: option could be homepage with bookmarks folder/folders. Or, just the Bookmarks folder. Sync across the platforms is great but the function on the app side is soooo frustrating. Please address this sooner than later.....

Am I should use Firefox private tab without extension/add-on for net banking rather than normal tab with extension/add-on.

kindly clear these doubts.

I switched to Firefox from yandex browser recently on both desktop and android recently and have been really enjoying it, but pages on android 11 (galaxy a52) load very slow for some reason. It is much slower than yandex, and i find it weird, because it's the other way around on desktop, and i've heard good things about firefox's speed as well. Maybe the issue isn't in the browser. I run latest version of it, and tried google search and duck duck go. It was alright on google, still slower, but bearable. On ddg it's just barely working. The internet speed is fine, and i don't use any vpn or proxy. Speed remains slow both using wifi and cellular.

On multiple sites, if not all, text selection doesn't work, it's jumpy and buggy. I have the latest version of Firefox, but this was a problem in the previous versions too.

I hope it's fixed because it's very annoying and the only reason I keep Chrome on my phone.

Thanks
