When you press the number in the upper right hand corner, you're shown a gray screen with 3 options at the top - i understand the mask for private browsing, the sync icon for syncing, but why the bell icon?


It's the 1st on the top left - i guess it means home or awesome screen? And why's it a bell???


Thanks for any illumination you can provide!

I've noticed my open tabs do not sync automatically like it does when I move from desktop to my Android device. Example scenario to explain this better:

I'm on my desktop Firefox with several open tabs. Then I pick up my Android device (4.2 Jelly Bean) and open Firefox Android, and I go to open new tab and chose the "Sync" menu, unfortunately the tabs it shows from my desktop device are not up to date at all.

In fact the only way I've found to sync up these tabs is to go on my Android device under Sync -> Firefox Sync -> Menu Button -> Sync Now. Then my tabs update perfect, but shouldn't this just happen automatically, or at least from a "Sync Now" button right in Firefox Android? Am I completely missing something obvious?

Thanks!!

I have done a clean reinstall of the latest versions of Firefox on both systems, and also tried registering and syncing new accounts. Each time I get the same problem: both systems claim to have synced, but the data is not available to view on the phone.

None of the other similar issues in the help section had solutions which resolved my problem. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Best, James

I've been using Firefox for a long time, and Firefox for Android for a while too. I loved tabs, it is one of my favorite features in Firefox.

Ever since I bought my tablet, I've used Firefox. I often will click on a link to open it into a new tab. These tabs are then opened in the background, and I work through them one-by-one basis.

Today, however, it stopped working that way. If I click on a link and open it in a new tab, it automatically brings that page to the front, not in the background like I want it to.

I've searched the settings, Mozilla's faqs, and other forums, but no one seems to be having a simular problem. I know I didn't change anything in the settings to cause this.

Any advice as to help me get new tabs to open in the background again would be great.

Thanks so much! -MouseKitty

Am I just being dumb or is it not yet implemented?
