Logins not syncing from PC Firefox browser to iOS

I can't get saved logins on my web browser to appear in the iOS Firefox app.

I have sync enabled at both ends, and have tried signing out and signing back in, removing and then re-adding the iOS device, and disabling and re-enabling sync, but nothing has worked.

I see this same problem has been logged many times here before but all those threads appear to have been archived without a solution being offered.

I have since disabled the Primary Password function on my PC browser to see if that would help with syncing.

It did: the 93 logins I had stored and updated behind the Primary Password were erased and replaced with the three I had on my iPhone.

These were Firefox-generated strong passwords, meaning I have no hope of remembering them and can't even track which 93 websites they were for.

Since it seems like this function causes widespread issues with Mozilla users and their support never seems to post solutions, I guess just take this as a word of warning.
