I can't add my computer to my Firefox sync. When I get on Firefox on my Android device (the device that does have my Firefox sync) I am told to "tap the Set up Firefox Sync button on the Firefox Start page." They even show a screenshot so I know what I'm looking for, however, this button does not exist on my Firefox for Android. I've looked all over the start page for it & tried every other means I can think of to get to the sync but it all boils back to tapping this button that I don't have. I would appreciate any help I can get.

In Firefox for Android is it possible to download an image and rename it right away?

I am following a lot of webcomics on a regular basis and want to save favorite pages, i.e. the images. In order to be able to organize these images by comic later, I need the ability to rename the files. Switching to the download directory for renaming for every single file however would be highly intrusive during webcomic reading, so I need a "Save As" style dialog.

Dolphin provides such a dialog when choosing "Save Image", but I'd rather use firefox for the encrypted synchronization features.

I'm trying to get the Sync code on my android device in order to retrieve all my bookmarks from my main computer to the tablet pc. The directions on the Mozilla support site say to "Tap the Set up Firefox Sync button on the Firefox Start page." Well I cannot for the life on my find this button or the Firefox start page. Where could it possibly be? My tablet pc, when operating Firefox, does not bring up any such page with said button.

How do I share tabs between my different Firefox installations using the new Firefox Accounts system?

I am using Firefox Nightly (30.a1, 2014-02-18, x64) on my laptop computer (Windows 8.1 Pro x64) and I was using Firefox Beta on my Nexus 5 (Android 4.4.2). Recently, Mozi… (read more)

I am using Firefox Nightly (30.a1, 2014-02-18, x64) on my laptop computer (Windows 8.1 Pro x64) and I was using Firefox Beta on my Nexus 5 (Android 4.4.2). Recently, Mozilla announced the new Firefox Accounts system (which is replacing the old Firefox Sync Account) and I created a Firefox Account for my laptop Nightly installation. Since the new Firefox Account doesn't work with the old Firefox Sync Account, I replaced my Android installation of Firefox Beta with Firefox Nightly and signed into Firefox Account on my Android. However, when I attempt to send a tab from my Android installation to my laptop installation using the "Share to Nightly" intent, Nightly asks me to set up a Sync account, which is impossible to complete in my laptop Nightly installation. I've tried replacing my Android Nightly installation with an Android Aurora installation, but the same problem occurs.

What's worse is that even with both my laptop and Android installations signed into the same Firefox Account, I cannot see any information being synced between the 2 installations. No history is being shared, and I cannot see the open tabs list from the other device. I cannot pass tabs between my phone and my laptop, which is something I used every week as I visited websites and read my RSS feeds on my phone. Does anyone know how to share tabs using the new Firefox Accounts? Does anyone know why Firefox Accounts does not seem to be syncing data between my 2 installations?

I created an account for Firefox on my laptop and it works. But when I try to signin on my tablet, it keeps saying my email needs to be verified but I have not received the email verification. I tried twice to have FF re-send it but it never comes through. Yet when I signed up for the FF support forum, it came right through.

I have already paired and synced the tablet with my laptop but can't login the account profile, etc.

If I choose sync settings for my add-ons, between my Windows XP laptop and android phone, will one device' s add-ons go on the other automatically? For example, if i add a password manager add-on to my PC, will that same add-on go onto my phone? Or will i have to separately add it again to my phone? If I do have to add it separately, then what exactly IS the add-on syncing doing?

I am purchasing a mobile phone after not having one for five years. I like to use Firefox at home and need to know specifically what smart phones use this product. The android 2.2 etc. and the rest really does not mean anything to me. You could tell me how to find this information on your website. I found one page that listed devices but then it said something about going to Google Play Store and you lost me. FYI, I have a very sharp learning curve.
