I'm signed in to my Firefox account on multiple desktop computers. Where are my containers?

Do containers not sync? I don't see any explicit option to include them in the sync settings. I have "add-ons" and "settings" checked. One computer has the correct containers and the rest have the default set (personal, shopping, etc.). Sync is otherwise working correctly.

In response to early replies I realized I left out some detail in my question.

- I have sync enabled in the extension settings. - This is a continuous problem (the containers from one browser have never synced with the others, over many months) so I don't think it's just a time delay issue.

Thanks for your responses.

Sync isn't instantaneous updates as one may think. It could takes some time for the sync data to download to other computers. One should readup the FAQ on sync first here when using sync.

You can find the option to sync the containers in the settings of the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension. See What you can do with Multi-Account Containers (8).

The sync feature will align Multi-Account Containers on different computers. The add-on carries over Container names, colors, icons, and site assignments on to any other machines with the same Firefox account.
