Syncing uBlock Origin (addon) data, and Sync between Mobile and Linux in general?

I have "sync: addons" enabled in my sync settings (on all relevant devices).

1. Neither uBlock Origin nor its settings appeared on my Android tablet (I can't recall if this worked on my other computer, but I'm 90% sure it did). Does this not work for syncing between mobile and Linux browsers (two Ubuntu machines)?

2. I tried using uBlock Origin's "Enable cloud storage support" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Cloud-storage) to move my site whitelist, but it appears to have a different bucket across my Linux and Android devices. I turned it off again after attempting to sync both (Firefox sync) and then get uBlock Origin to read its settings from there.

3. Now that I've migrated my settings manually, I no longer need the cloud sync data from uBlock Origin. Unfortunately, there's no apparent setting in my browser's (either Ubuntu or Android) Account menu to view or edit synced data. Is some amount of unnecessary data now floating there forever, unable to be accessed?

4. If there IS a method to view the contents of sync, how do I find it? Back when I used Chrome, it had a nasty habit of duplicating stuff at the server and occasionally pushing it back to duplicate all my bookmarks. I'd like to see what I've got stored and what (if any) storage quota I'm near. I have an absurd amount of stuff I need to keep synchronized between machines and I'd like warning if I'm using it inefficiently (see: undeletable data from that addon, small though it is) or if there are duplicate entries.

I think it would be more useful to use the collection as your own navigation. This needs to be 1. The ability to adjust the order of collections 2. Can purchase and adjust the order of the internal website of the collection set 3. The ability to rename the names of various websites in the collection. I'm a big fan of using favorites for sites I visit frequently such as YouTube, BBC Home.... I always categorize them to make it easier to find and visit them. I know Firefox can add sites to popular sites, but these sites are out of order, all at the top, and hard to find when using them.

Without any difference in functionality the grid view doesn't make much sense to me. For a long time Firefox was the preferred browser on my phone, mainly because it was the only one that supported manual tab reordering. The fact is that I often have a lot of Web pages open in tabs, and I plan to read them later. With Firefox I could quickly set the priority of reading, moving tabs up or down. Suddenly Mozilla made the tabs unmovable and introduced collections instead. Collections are convenient, but don’t replace manual tab reordering. They are great for routine tasks. But on phones, the vast majority of routine tasks are performed by their own applications, so, collections can only be useful for news and forums. However, even while reading the news, I open several tabs that I often need to rearrange. Thus, Firefox became much less attractive to me. Around the same time, Google’s Chrome made tabs movable and even introduced groups of tabs to make browsing more convenient. I recently realized that I now prefer Chrome. I only open Firefox when I need to listen to music videos in background or access my bookmarks and Firefox accounts. Will Mozilla team ever again return manual change the order of tabs?

I've used Chrome for years but I considered using Firefox for android because of add on feature. But I found it frustrating to use because it was frequently slower to load websites like Twitter and had issues with videos crashing. I'm also trying Firefox nightly which works slightly better, but still has issues with video playback on websites

So, the problem is exactly what the title describes. Videos would start playing immediately upon opening in a new tab. The issue appeared a couple days ago. I haven't changed any settings in firefox or in YouTube. Also, a friend of mine tried on his own computer to play videos in a new tab using chrome and the same thing happened, videos don't start. I guess it's a YT problem, but I would like a more experienced opinion. Googling didn't help, as every result was either very old, or it had to do with browser/account settings. Any help is appreciated, thanks a lot in advance!

I lately have a strange problem with one of Website on the Android Mozilla Browser. However, the page works just fine with all the other browsers, as well as Mozilla Desktop browser. I tried clearing cache, uninstalling the browser, and also followed a number of video tutorials on Youtube. But, all in vain. Can somebody tell me what the issue is?
