Hi,

I have Firefox Sync enabled on a MacBook, a PC, and my iPhone XS Max. Synced Tabs show up between the PC and Mac, but neither show signs of the iPhone XS Max. Managing devices shows all devices and I've removed duplicates while troubleshooting. Synced Tabs on the iPhone shows no devices at all. I've disabled Sync and re-enabled on the iOS device. Firefox version is latest on iPhone(27). I haven't deleted and reinstalled Firefox on the iPhone, I have many open tabs I don't want to lose track of, but am willing to do so if this sledgehammer approach seems necessary. I can send tabs from the iPhone to the computers successfully. I've just tested bookmarks and I'm not seeing bookmarks go in each direction. I'm updating with a forced "Sync Now" on both devices when testing.

I'd appreciate any help or suggestions to get syncing working properly between all three devices.

I just got a new iPad and was excited to start using Firefox on it. To my disappointment, for some reason Sync is not working. When I go to Firefox Settings on the iPad, below "synchronize" it shows "2020-06-20 23:05:56" as the previous sync date. This does not change after I tap on it to sync. For a little while it spins the arrows and says "Synchronizing..." (rough translation as I have language set to Finnish) and then it just shows the same date again.

It has not synced my newest bookmarks from my desktop or Firefox on my Android phone and if I send tabs to the iPad, they never arrive. The curious part is that I got the device on 25th of June, so I haven't even used it on the 20th, which is the previous sync date. It has synced my older bookmarks, but doesn't sync any of the new ones I make. Also when I try to access my (synced) credentials and passwords it just loads forever.

When I go to my Firefox account details on my desktop and view the connected devices, it shows that last activity on the iPad was a few seconds ago. If I change the device name from the iPad, it updates in the list.

The Firefox version on the iPad is 27.0 (18428) and iPadOS version is 13.5.1 which is the latest version. I do not have any restrictions on my network that I know of, I don't use a VPN or proxy and I even enabled background updates for the Firefox app without any help. I tried logging out of Firefox Sync but after logging in I got the same last sync date.

I wonder if this is a bug or if something has gone wrong in my Firefox account.

SHORTCUT CHANGE in Word Processing websites: change "fn" "cntrl" or "command" + arrows to jump word, not "home"/"end"

How to manually adjust shortcuts in Firefox:

- in web-based Word Processing softwares, GDocs for example, the only shortcut available is to use "fn, ctrl, or command" + a L/R arrow to scroll through a text when writing. The "option(alt) + arrow" scrolls through maximized windows, as it should. WHY HAVE THE SAME FUNCTION SET TO THREE DIFFERENT KEYS? Aren't there multiple keys in order to create subtlety in the keyboard? THERE IS NO WAY TO MANUALLY INPUT SHORTCUTS IN FIREFOX?

There's no way to manually modify text shortcuts in iOS. Unless I'm missing something. So why not in FF?

I’m using the most recent version of FF (v27) on the most recent version of iOS (v13.5.1) on a 3 year old iPad. This problem has existed for at least 6 months if not more (so through several previous versions).

Pages on https://www.biggerpockets.com/ load very slow and almost everytime that don’t load completely. Further once the page does display, if I scroll, the screen sections that had displayed disappear. This site operates without any of these issues when viewed through the Safari browser.

Thanks.

Can someone please give me a proper Yahoo! search url with query to add to the the FireFox iOS app as I'm somewhat confused by the values or whatever. here's what I got:

Can't find 'quick search' add options anymore. If anyone can help with the 'query' as I'm somewhat confused with the proper placement and just want to be able to instantly search a result without being redirected to Yahoo! homepage, It'd greatly be appreciated.

Since working from home i log in through a website. a box usually pops up asking if id like to open the program using a link/app etc. I accidentally checked the box at the bottom "do not ask again" or "do the same action for the future" now i notice my tool bars like Honey or Mypoints are no longer automatically applying coupon codes or points to websites as they did in the past. i did some googling and i tried allowing pop-ups / modifying add ons via firefox and cant seem to figure out how to get everything back to normal. I truly dont want to uninstall // reinstall but i will if there are no other options to fix the issues.

any insight will be helpful. Thanks!
