Trying to sync Android firefox app with laptop. Firefox Android app installed. Check. Open android settings, turn on sync. Check. QR code on laptop screen. Check. Touch "scan" button at lower frame of Firefox

    Android app, scan code on laptop. Check.

Error message: "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app." No, I did not use system camera. Yes, I did activate it from the firefox app/scan button - REPEATEDLY. Somehow, firefox does not recognize it's own activation of my system camera. Please help, I need the bookmarks off my phone and onto laptop. Thank you.

Have installed Firefox on Windown 11 PC , Android mobile and Android tablet. Bookmarks seem to sync across devices but i like the speed dial feature as used on Vivaldi. This only appears to work on desktop as an add on but doesnt sync to the Android devices. I then discovered Collections on my Android phone which seemed ideal. Set it up and then found it didnt sync to any of the other devices. Can this be done. If not going back to Vivaldi. Very dissapointed as it seems to be a really fast browser.

I have Firefox sync set up for my desktop and Android. For the past moth or so Firefox on Android can't send tabs to my desktop as it says "No devices connected". Despite this I can send tabs from my desktop to the Android install.

I am using the latest ESR on Windows, and have used both the latest main release and beta versions of Firefox. This issue has been ongoing for several versions. Full uninstall and removal of local files for both devices has not helped, neither has signing in an out. It seems that the Android side simply cannot see there's other devices period.

Hi, I use Firefox on my Samsung S21 ultra, I am soon getting a Samsung S23 ultra. I have my account synced so I know it will save the bookmarks and site passwords. I am assuming sync doesn't include app settings, shortcuts I have created on front screen and collecting I have made? Is there any way to back them up see I can move them across? Regards James

Maybe I am blind and wise developers already have this option but I doubt it!! and my obvious question is how in the world I have to sync all my collection list of web pages ???? and pinned sites ??? why this is so hard for a dev brain to understand that if you made a option for storing weblinks so should be a way of saving all this !!!! VERY OBVIOUS THING !!but in 2023 we still have problems losing bookmarks and other data !!! because of horible app design (not UI) !! im in the process in moving to new phone and I'm stuck because I don't see a way of saving all my old phone to ne without deleting lot of info or with lot of manual work to copy at least something and this is 2023 !!!
