I have always been the type of person to max out my tabs on web browsers and try to remember what we browser I used to refer to on different situations. Once I looked into Firefox, I was extremely impressed and excited to use the collection options to become better organized with different websites! I originally made a list of collections on my tablet and was under the impression that when I went to share the collection with from my tablet to my phone (both newer Samsung models) that it would share the whole collection as is to my phone and that I could create new collections on my phone and share back with my tablet. I don't always have both on hand but would like to use them interchangeably. I know I can sync the tabs which are open which is a nice feature and I have since added my collections from my tablet to my phone.

I think it would be an amazing option to be able to customize the collections - organize alphabetically, color control for collections that are similar, "parent collections" or a sub collection option from your main collection to just allow better organization. I do like the collection feature but I am not able to organize it and now I'm in a similar (though much better) scenario as I was when I had a bunch of tabs open from different search engines. Any possible update or options would be much appreciated! Also, I am very new with using Firefox in recent times so there may be something I am missing but from what I found I don't see any options as to what I'm referring to. Any help is also much appreciated!!

How do I synch Collections between all my mobile android devices? [I'm not using desktop now.] I have different Collections on each of my 2 tablets and my mobile phone. I would like to aggregate them unless there's a limit to how many Collections are allowed on a device's Firefox Homepage. thx!

Was painstakingly transferring my collections of bookmarked links from my old Android phone to my new one (please fix this so entire collections can be moved as one, rather than individual components). Not halfway through yet; all was going well, and suddenly I got the message "Unable to send - Retry." Multiple tries; no further success. Nothing had changed re the wifi connection for either phone. Hoping this is something simple.

I recently got new samsung tablet s6 . I am logged into successfully to synchronize and see my bookmarks. Problem is I can't save new bookmarks on tablet. I found article about write protected file but those directions are not available on the tablet/android version of Firefox.

Less important 2nd question is...should the collections from my phone and pc show up on tablet? I do not see them. Would so much like to see them

So I finally organised a hundred of inactive tabs on my phone into Collections. Then I had to re-install the Firefox app. And what - now after signing in I won't recover my collections? They are nowhere to be seen and I'm absolutely distraught. Should've used the good old bookmarks, but too late now, isn't it?...
