Can we have a feature to toggle sync off/on ? Currently it always on and might account for lot of battery usage background. Firefox is almost always running in the background so that's the main issue.

I can't set up sync. I have Firefox for Mac 89.0 on a MacBook and Firefox for Android 89.1.1 on a Samsung Galaxy. I have signed into my Firefox account on both. When I attempt to link the two to sync, I am given a QR Code on the Mac screen. I snap a picture of the QR Code using the Scan button on Firefox for Android, but I always get an error message on my phone stating "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app". By using the scan button near the Firefox for Android address bar, I thought I was within the Firefox app. I don't understand what I'm supposed to do differently.

Thank you for your assistance.

I do have a Firefox account but unfortunately synchronisation works only one way - things from my android go to computer but when I try to do this back I don't get any bookmarks or browsing history. I even wiped history on my phone to be sure and now it's empty. Screenshots in attachment.
