I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?

two-factor authentication and samsung

Good morning - I wanted to set up two-factor authentication with your browser for security reasons. A code comes up that one uses with one's phone. I connected with it, but I couldn't finish setting up the 2FA. Here's the problem: My Samsung Note 20 Ultra has fingerprint scanning on the screen. Since I bought it, I tried using the fingerprint feature, but it is a beast to get my prints scanned and then it can hardly ever scan my print successfully. So I gave up using fingerprints altogether. So I scan your code, and it wants me to do the whole fingerprinting thing with my phone in order to set it up. It doesn't give me the option to use the security that I did choose to use with my phone. Please advise how I can get 2FA without doing all of this. Thanks. Ritva

Hi, I have used Firefox on my Android and laptop for a long time and now have an issue with my Android version on a Samsung S20. A fresh tab seems ok till I Google something, it then is very dark and does not display my usual 'All' appearance, it appears as what I would describe as adverts. I do not have any 3rd party Firefox plugins installed, its 100% pure Firefox. Can I restore to a previous point, can you help me please? The screen shot looks as if I have a dark mode of some sort but I dont.

Im running Ver 126.0.1 Build # 2016023311

Thanks

I am running Ff 114.0.2 on a Windows 11 workstation and Ff mobile on a Samsung Galaxy S20. Syncing is enabled on both devices, but passwords are not syncing, even after manually syncing. Autofill of usernames and passwords works on my workstation, but not on my mobile device, even though that feature is enabled. Sometimes (but not always), I am prompted on my mobile device to unlock Firefox, but after tapping the prompt, nothing happens.

For years, I have my homepage on Firefox browser app on Android Galaxy phone set to Google.com. 2 days ago this only shows a white screen. I have verified all settings and even uninstalled/ reinstalled the app. I can use the Google app to get there, just not through Firefox. Is there a fix for this? Thanks.

Sync and Save missing from Android

I am trying to sync my desktop Firefox data to my Android phone, a Samsung Galaxy S21+. In every help topic I read, it says to click the three dots on Android, go to settings and click "Sync and save data," then click "Ready to scan" and scan the QR code provided from my desktop account. The issue I am running into is that the "Sync and save data" option does not exist on my Firefox Android app. If I click on my profile on the phone, I can click "Sync" but it doesn't do anything. It does not work if I try to scan the QR code through the phone camera instead. I am at a loss for how to sync my Mozilla account on these two devices. My Firefox app is up to date. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.
