Hello dears!

I have an urgent problem, my android phone is broken and as I had FF beta on my SD card (which was set as main memory) and now is not accesible thorugh phone. I had plenty important collections and bookmarks which will be lost now after reseting my phone. I wonder if there is a way to access to collections through firefox sync (which I couldnt find any) or a location on the memory card inside FF app data?

I would really appriciate any help! :)

I use twitter on my samsung pretty often, and I used to use fennec's send function to send certain tweets directly to my PC to view them there later, without much hassle and without leaving the twitter app. The problem is fennec is defunct now, and while firefox can send those tweets to my PC's firefox, it does so only after it opens in the firefox app and opens a new tab and requires several more button presses. Is there a way to get firefox to just immediately send the link to my PC from the twitter app itself?

I am attempting to sync from desktop to android 10 phone. I go Setting - add device. Follow instructions to open firefox on phone, open Firefox QR scanner. I show qr code on pc. scan w phone. Prompts with a link. hit allow. Nice big error message stating that I must use firefox app. Well, as noted, that is what I am doing. I need to import my hundreds of bookmarks.

Where is the sync button in settings on android? Why try to reinvent the wheel? Ugh.

Anyone know how I can do this? I'm no pro with android in general.

EDIT: My bookmark folders show on android but are all empty. That is the problem I started with.
