Hello, I did have master password enabled on my firefox browser for android. I was not aware on any updates that would prevent me accessing my login/password. If there was a clear warning that an update coming out soon that could delete my logins/password if I did not follow so-and-so instruction, then i did not receive it. I am not sure how it happened, but my browser updated itself. Now I'm not sure how to proceed to restore the missing login/password.

Also, before this recent browser update, I noticed that recently when I logged in my new phone and tried to sync, the login/password did not sync either. It used to, what changed?

Warning to all who read this. You must disable master password before your browser update if you want to have them migrated to the new browser.

Sharing links from other apps directly to desktop

Previously, if in another app I chose to share a link via Firefox, it gave the option of either opening the link, or sharing it directly to an instance of Firefox on another device without leaving the app I am in. Since the recent large update, it gives no options and instead always loads the link in Firefox. Of course, from there I can still send the tab to my desktop, but that still requires switching apps and the page starting to load, which on some connections is not desirable.

Is there a way re-enable the previous behavior as it is very useful to quickly send links on my desktop without switching apps when I know don't need to see them immediately, but would like them to be readily visible when I return to my desk?

I have currently 5 devices connected in Firefox Sync: - Imac - Macbook Pro - 2 Ipads - 1 Android phone

Everything syncs correctly except the android phone which refuses to show the synced ipad tabs from both ipads. I can see the Imac and Macbook Pro tabs, but nothing from the ipad.

All other devices can see everything, including the tabs from the android phone.

Any help is much appreciated.

I accidentally added a tab to firefox sync that I do not want to appear in the synced tabs list, and now I can't remove it. I searched for a solution and found a topic from four years ago suggesting to go to Settings > Clear Private Data to find the option to clear synced tabs, but that didn't seem to work. Is there any method to remove your a synced tab or at the very least clear all sync data?

Just like the title says, after this most recent major revamp, my firefox mobile on my android does no give me login suggestions anymore, despite autofill being enabled, nor does it recognizes the keywords for the search bookmarks I made, even though my accounts are completely synced. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it didn't work. Is there something else I can try or do I need to downgrade back to when it worked?

I have a Samsung S9, as well as an iPad pro, and a Windows 10 PC, all with Firefox, and Firefox Sync.

My PC can see all the synced tabs from my phone, and my iPad.

My iPad can see all the synced tabs from my phone, and my PC.

My phone can only see synced tabs from my PC.

I have tried logging out/back in on both the iPad and the phone, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling on both. There is no change.

I haven't been able to find anything to troubleshoot this, and I did try clearing the cache/history on both the iPad and phone. Any advice would be much appreciated!
