Hello,

It seems you can sync a lot of things between devices.

However, COLLECTIONS can not be synced? One of the most interesting newer features on Firefox. Collections are way more easy to use than the old bookmarks and a real game changer on another Browser.

Will Mozilla be able to get this working? I really want to keep using Firefox for its excellent privacy features and independence!

Thanks for your help and feedback!

Hello there,

I changed my Mozilla password and naturally had to log in again into my account on Android. The whole process worked flawlessly, I can get into my account, the device is shown in the active sessions, everything seems fine. However, when I open the settings on Android, Firefox tells me to log in into my account to sync the data - so I am simultaneously logged in and not logged in. I have restarted Firefox, restarted my phone, un- and reinstalled Firefox, nothing updates the app to finally acknowledge that I am logged in. Is there anything else I can do?

I'm moving to a new browser that works better for my needs, but I can't export my data using Firefox sync due to me not having access to a computer (my laptop is currently unusable). So, is there any way to export my data quickly without using Firefox sync? I looked this up already, but couldn't find any solutions. Hopefully you guys have a solution?

Thanks! Victoria ♡

Recently my Firefox browser updated, but my bookmarks didn't.

If I try about:profiles from the address bar, nothing happens.

How do I go about accessing other profiles and enhanced settings on Android.

I don't understand why my bookmarks are and other settings weren't migrated, or why before the update a warning wasn't displayed that the data would be lost or why it wasn't exported as plain text so that nothing was lost??

Despite your suggestion in your prematurely-closed question at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1415834 the Android app *STILL* doesn't have the Sync and Save Data option. This is v120.1.1 (you know, well after the Overflow Menu got BROKEN in the desktop version). I have NO idea what device you must be using to suggest scanning from the keyboard, but this phone has no such item. And scanning from the camera complains that I didn't scan from the non-existent option in the app.

Firefox Sync. How does it work?

I'm moving away from Brave for one reason:

- If you do not have brave sync on at least 2 devices and your device crashes, your bookmarks are lost.

Looking for a webbroswer with sync capability comparable to that of Google-Chrome, I remembered that Firefox exists.

And I have one question about it: How does its sync work? Let us say I am connected to my firefox sync account solely on my computer. And then my computer crashes and is unrepairable. Can I just log into my firefox account on another machine and get all my bookmarks back? (like in the case of Google-Chrome)????

Thanks!
