I deleted and reinstalled firefox mobile ios, but multiple incorrect addresses are still there. I cannot delete or modify them.

There are no saved addresses on my firefox account that I am able to view from my desktop. The addresses appearing on firefox mobile are incorrect, and not the addresses from my contacts.

The instructions are wrong and convoluted. How can I scan a QR code if it is on the iOS device???????? Mozilla just doesn't know how to get around the iOS limitations.

I will no longer use firefox on my iPAD if I can't sync my bookmarks from my Android/Windows bookmarks.

"Firefox Sync" not sufficient

On an iPhone, Firefox stores your browsing history within the app’s local storage, which is not directly accessible due to iOS’s security restrictions.

However, you can only export your ~FUTURE~ local mobile browsing history by using Firefox Sync.

Firefox Sync does not work retroactively for local mobile browsing history from past sessions due to the way the synchronization process is structured.

TL;DR: I want to export my local mobile browsing history as .txt or .csv -- When you enable Firefox Sync, it starts syncing the data from that point forward. However, my pre-existing local mobile browsing history cannot be exported as a file such as bookmarks can, and it cannot be saved to my desktop via Firefox Sync for the reasons above. Thus, it is literally only possible to scroll over it and open the sites one-by-one in order to pop them into the Sync-able history, which I do not want to do using iOS automation...

Please fix or advise. Thank you.

I have Firefox on my desktop and iPad and both are synced. I love Firefox on my desktop but, honestly, I have to continue to use Safari on my Ipad because the iOS version of Firefox is nowhere near as good. One of my biggest obstacles to converting to Firefox on my iPad is trying to save bookmarks so I can access them on my desktop. When I bookmark a page on my iPad I cannot find it's location on my desktop. Can you please advise where Firefox places bookmarks that are saved on my iPad. Thanks

iOS share menu “send to device” shows “you don’t have any other devices connected to this account available to sync”

Recently (since iOS update to 17.3 perhaps?) the share menu from other apps does not show any of my other devices for me to send tabs to.

If I use the share menu to open in Firefox, then use the “send link to device” option there, the expected available devices do show up, and the send action does work (causes tabs to open on those other devices) when I choose them.

This is a recent regression. I want to be able to keep using Firefox on my desktop browser’s despite using a different browser on iOS, and a more cumbersome tab ingestion makes me less likely to continue doing that.

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.

Long-time Firefox user. Sync works fine everywhere else. First time attempting sync with Firefox on iOS.

iPhone 15: iOS 17.1, Firefox: latest version

I log in successfully to Gmail with username and password. Using the same username and password to connect with Firefox Sync, I get "Incorrect password".

I just installed (and reinstalled) Firefox on my iPhone 12 Mini, in the hopes that I could sync bookmarks, etc., that I have set up on my notebook's Firefox browser. I have gone through all the steps (twice) and it still will not migrate my bookmarks to the ios version. My account shows that Firefox is active on both devices. What am I missing? John
