I have had Firefox for years in linux, currently Debian Jessie. 8 days ago I installed Firefox for Android to my phone running Marshmallow. After installing I've created a Firefox Sync account on linux and logged into it from Android. All the bookmarks got transferred to Android just fine. There was nothing to sync back because installation on Android was new.

Since then (8 days ago), both devices report that they are connected to the Sync account. But nothing is synced. Both devices report that there are 2 devices but that the other device wasn't online for 8 days. And I've got mails that I only connected one device (but as I said, the account shows two devices connected on both platforms).

What's the problem? I will update to Debian Stretch soon, will a new desktop Firefox fix the thing automatically?

Confused,

Try creating a new Firefox Account with a different email address.

Last sunday, I signed out the old account and created a new one, this time via Firefox on Android. Connected Firefox for linux directly afterwards. As far as I can see everything works now.

Thank you for your help!
