i have a mozilla account. I am pretty sure I am logged in on both desktop, laptop and android.

no matter what I do, the "sync and save data"option on android does not appear. when I view the qr code on my android galaxy a14 5g android version 13 it takes me to the google play store where my choices are open or uninstall. when I tap open, it asks "do you want to leave firefox?". google play screen re-appears. 2nd time I tap to open, it just displays the url and android browser is blank. mzl.la/3NDxAIS

how can I sync my android version 121.1.0 to my desktop?

I just discovered that the android phone (Samsung A71) I am currently using was in fact still using Lockwise for Auto Fill.

How do I force this old copy of Lockwise to do a final sync before I uninstall it. I do know that at least some of the passwords stored in it are up to date. At this time, I DO NOT have access to a PC. I DO have access to a more recent android phone (Samsung A53 5G) that DOES NOT have Lockwise installed and is using the most up-to-date version of FireFox for Android.

Also is firefox typed out in lowercase or one of these ways: "Firefox" or "FireFox"? I have a habit of camelcasing some computer terms left over from my days as a UNIX Administrator (AT&T Bell Labs versions and not any BSD versions) and want to know the proper way to type it (from the horse's mouth so to speak).

Regards

Hello,

It seems you can sync a lot of things between devices.

However, COLLECTIONS can not be synced? One of the most interesting newer features on Firefox. Collections are way more easy to use than the old bookmarks and a real game changer on another Browser.

Will Mozilla be able to get this working? I really want to keep using Firefox for its excellent privacy features and independence!

Thanks for your help and feedback!

My Objective: Synch firefox on my desktop with firefox on my android phone.

This image shows the directions I inadvertently followed by accident, because I could not tell they were not the directions i needed to follow. This is all on the android phone:

I remember Firefox on android used to open up tabs immediately after I send them from another device, now there's a bunch of notification popping up on my phone/tablet and I have to click them one by one. It's not a bad change but if I send about 5-10 tabs over in a clump, I would prefer if the notification can bundle them all into one single item. Is there a way to fix this?

Hello there,

I changed my Mozilla password and naturally had to log in again into my account on Android. The whole process worked flawlessly, I can get into my account, the device is shown in the active sessions, everything seems fine. However, when I open the settings on Android, Firefox tells me to log in into my account to sync the data - so I am simultaneously logged in and not logged in. I have restarted Firefox, restarted my phone, un- and reinstalled Firefox, nothing updates the app to finally acknowledge that I am logged in. Is there anything else I can do?

I'm moving to a new browser that works better for my needs, but I can't export my data using Firefox sync due to me not having access to a computer (my laptop is currently unusable). So, is there any way to export my data quickly without using Firefox sync? I looked this up already, but couldn't find any solutions. Hopefully you guys have a solution?

Thanks! Victoria ♡

So, I'm switching back to Edge, again, because something basic with browsers isn't working in FF, again. This time it's syncing via Firefox Sync.

Three Windows 10 PCs and an Android Phone. All are connected to my Firefox account, all are set to sync everything - bookmarks, history, accounts/passwords, extensions, etc. The only thing that is currently reliably syncing between devices are the extensions.

A few days ago I posted about how nigh impossible it is to manage the saved accounts/passwords in FF because it takes forever to select one, manage it, confirm it, then move to the next, whereas Edge you can just select AND manage in one click, or multi-select to delete.

My work around to that was to just nuke everything via the menu, manage the accounts in Edge and re-import them back to FF. This worked for the one instance of FF on that one PC. The other PCs got only partial data synced, but I was able to see the entire changed data set in Edge on the other PCs.

Today, I added a bookmark via my phone. It did not sync. Even after confirming that sync is enabled, and even after specifically telling FF on the phone to sync, then FF on the desktop to sync.

Every install of FF is updated to current.

I'm beginning to not care what Google does with the Manifest and trust, maybe naively, that the extensions developers will find a way.

Recently my Firefox browser updated, but my bookmarks didn't.

If I try about:profiles from the address bar, nothing happens.

How do I go about accessing other profiles and enhanced settings on Android.

I don't understand why my bookmarks are and other settings weren't migrated, or why before the update a warning wasn't displayed that the data would be lost or why it wasn't exported as plain text so that nothing was lost??
