Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

I either can't sign into accounts like email or eBay or have to try several times by refreshing and things like that. Some accounts I can't get into it all unless I use Chrome. I don't have this trouble at all on Chrome but don't want to use it if I don't have to.

Hello, I reinstalled the Firefox application, I wanted to log into my account but forgot the password, decided to restore it, reset the password, logged in and synchronized, but the synchronization did not give any results, all passwords and bookmarks disappeared. I saw a warning that each password is attached to a specific account and some data may not be restored, but I did not think that ALL data would be lost. Is there no way to bring them back? Thank you.

I only use my desktop bookmarks both on my desktop and my mobile. Yet everytime I want to access my desktop bookmarks toolbar from my mobile, I have to click the URL field and then 3 more press until I reach what I want. couldn't you give a option for default view when pressing the URL bar on mobile. therefore I could choose to reach by default my desktop bookmarks toolbar. it would be a huge gain of time. thanks
