Firefox Nightly Will NOT Sign in To Synch

I've been using Firefox Nightly for Android and Firefox for Android for years without issue. I've left Nightly at build 68.5a1 as it has several features that later bulds removed. I sync across all my mobile devices but NOT with my desktop. When a website requires a newer browser version to run, then I switch to plain Firefox.

Today Nightly would NOT open. It opened and pointed to an offline file. I noticed it was marked by "///". I'm sorry I didn't take a screenshot or note the file.

Reading several posts, I removed Nightly, purged the cash and purged the data. Then I reinstalled Nightly from the apk file I saved. While the install went without a hitch, it will NOT permit me to sign in to synch the data saved in all my other devices. It just spins as this image shows.

I read a post indicating a direct url for sign in and tried it. But it only worked for Firefox and NOT Nightly.

How do I resolve this?

Hello,

Today I wanted to switch from Chrome to Firefox(103.2.0) on my mobile and after logging in everything seemed fine until I had to login into an account. I discovered that none of my saved logins have been synchronised. On desktop I use Firefox(104.0)

  • I do not use a master password
  • I tried to synch manually through settings
  • The browsers across all platforms are up to date

How can I synch my content through my Firefox account?

Thanks.

I recently bought a new phone. I have a total of three. The first two are semi-retired. They have aging operating systems and are no longer updatable. But I use them as wireless extension devices. About two hours ago, I installed and attempted to access Firefox search engine. I didn't remember the password. So I created a new one. That was successful. But then I had to enter a verification code. I did so and now there is a significant delay. This is in my new phone. Operating on Android 13. I'm accessing Firefox on one of my retired phones which are linked via WiFi to my new phone.

So, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?????

I have a total of three devices, all with Firefox. Only one device has a sim card that is registered and subscribed.

Hello,

I created an account in Firefox with my old e-mail; nyayesh_abdollahi@fripost.org.

However, I have since deleted that e-mail and also forgotten the login password for that Firefox-account; therefore, I can't login to it albeit it exists.

I'm not sure how this works but I do believe the best way to resolve the matter is through the deletion of the aforementioned account.

Kindly, Nyayesh Abdollahi

I have recently updated my OS (Android) and reinstalled Firefox. I am now unable to sign in (only on THIS PARTICULAR smartphone). After entering my email and password Firefox redirects me to the accounts settings page and everything seems fine. However when I tap on menu button I still get the "Sign in to synchronise" prompt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have a problem with remembering the login details on the account - the point is that everything works fine on the browser on the computer, while on the browser on the phone (android) it sees the login details, but after selecting it, it does not complete the login fields as if there were no such data and they are, after checking the tab "saved login details" and finding the login, I manually copy the data and paste it on the page, then I log in ok. Why does the login not work with saved logins? Has anyone had or has the same problems? P.S Synchronization is done, the browser is reinstalled, it's the same on another phone
