I've installed "Firefox for Android" on my Cell ph. I have android ver. 5.1.1 & Chrome is my default browser for my Android. The directions to make Firefox doesn't have the options shown in the instructions for Ver 5 or Lower, mor does any other Ver 6 & 7 show when looking at the directions which show go into Apps/All/Browser or Internet. Nothing shows "Browser" or "Internet". So therefore, I'm unable to make Firefox my Default Browser. If I go into App/Chrome the Default is not enabled [Showing the button as Chrome being Default. If I uninstall my Chrome Browser, I then lose all Favorite Links. I hate "Google as it seems to have created a monopoly on every darn Android which I feel should be considered illegal. I have a low end Android Ph & will not pay the exuberant [Rediculous] prices that are charged for Cell aphs. I wish Consumers would realize they're getting ripped off & quit waisting their money on Tech Items that are over priced & built in sweat slave Communists shops in China.

Create passwords fields on Firefox for Android, not only on Desktop

Hello, on Firefox Desktop you can create custom password fields, putting the manual website, username and password; I use this possibility to store personal data, like pins and other codes. Why on Android there isn't the possibility? I see there is on Lockwise, but password stored there remain on Lockwise, they aren't synced with Firefox ecosystem, adding that I find Lockwise useless, as it never syncs new Firefox passwords, losing its primary use. Thank you, waiting for your answers.

Syncing disabled on android

Hi, I am signed in on 2 pc's and an android phone (Galaxy note 8). The pc's sync between them just fine but the phone won't. While I can send tabs between the phone and the pc's since the last update I cannot sync any items at all on the phone.

a. On the phone the "last synchronized" line shows "never". b. All options to select synchronization items are grey and cannot be selected. c. Tapping the sync symbol does not do anything.

I tried: 1. Signing in and out on all devices. 2. Restarting all devices. 3. Forcing sync on all devices.

I do not want to lose my phone history or bookmarks and do not want to uninstall the app. This also means I cannot revert to an older version as that would delete the history and bookmarks.

I have tried logging in on a different phone with firefox V61 and had no issues with the sync.

When I try to send a tab from Firefox Android to PC, everything is instant. If I try to send from PC to mobile, the tab with never come if I don't manually sync the account from the mobile device.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or I need to tweak a system setting, but Firefox Android will never receive the tab if I won't manually sync the android device.

Send Tab to Device from Desktop (v85.0) to Firefox for Android (v84.1.4) tab notification does not appear on mobile

Sending tabs from Firefox desktop (version 85.0, Windows 10) do not arrive to Firefox for Android (version 84.1.4) - phone does not show notification about new tab.

What I do On desktop: Right click on tab > Send Tab to Device > Firefox on <device>. Next I see blue notification on desktop saying "Sent!"

Problem After I send from desktop I do not see notification on mobile device with new tab arriving. Notification simply never arrives.

Workaround On mobile device: (three dots menu) > Settings > Accounts (My Account) > Sync now. All the tabs that I sent previously will arrive now. I have to do this every time I send tabs from desktop.


What I have tried

  • Restart Firefox for Android
  • Disconnect and connect mobile device to account.
  • Check for updates

Are there some additional troubleshooting steps that I can do, e.g. collect logs?

Other notes

  • This has been happening for a while now, at least couple of months and I am unable to pinpoint when it started.
  • Sending tab from Firefox for Android to Desktop works instantly.
  • Bookmarks, Synced tabs and History always sync as expected.
  • When I am doing the workaround, in Account settings, below "Sync now" text it always says: "Last synced: 0 minutes ago".

Hi,

When I am sending a tab from my Android phone to my PC it all works fine (the tab shows up in a second), but when I send the tab from the PC to my Android device the tab won't show up until I go to Firefox settings-> Firefox account on my android and I click on sync now (even though sync is enabled all the time).

Is there a way to make the Android auto sync all the time without me clicking it?
