Firefox for Mobile needs to sync Collections too.

My wife typically trusts me to make the tech decisions in my household, and is fine with using and supporting Mozilla and Firefox. Overall, she likes the new Mobile Firefox too, as do I.

She's a typical Tab Hoarder kind of user. On her last phone, I introduced her to Collections. Much easier to use and get to than Bookmarks, easy to understand, good at helping her control the immense amount of tabs she otherwise has open. She basically fell in love with the feature.

A few days ago she got a new phone. We still have her old one, but the screen is 1/3 cracks and it no longer holds a charge well. "Well loved", for sure.

Install Firefox on new phone --> sync over her stuff --> all good... Well, wait... Where are her collections with her hundred-or-more tabs in them for various stuff?

Turns out they don't sync?

I've been helping her manually move over the tabs from the collections on her old phone to the new phone, but I feel *extremely* lucky we still have the phone. If she'd lost her phone instead, that would be quite the amount of time she'd spent getting acquainted with and using this feature just to find it doesn't save anywhere.

This was all essentially written as a real-life use-case, for the following plea:

Please, *please* add Collections to what is able to be synced with the Firefox Sync feature.

Until about a week ago sync worked fine to my knowledge and I could look at saved logins on my Note 8 which were sync'd with my W10 desktop. Now FF sync on Note 8 will NOT update and show me saved logins and passwords, pressing the button does NOTHING. It doesn't even open a new page, absolutely nothing. My bookmarks will sync with desktop but NOT passwords/logins.

It is weird because when I go to a website and login, my Note8 does show suggested logins like it always has but in FF you cannot look at saved logins any longer?

Also noticed that under Note 8 accounts and backup, FF is NOT even listed as an account and I thought it used to be listed there.

I know that when I changed FF pw on my Note 8 it deleted the password/logins. But seeing as how they are still showing up on my desktop, obviously they are still saved in FF

Firefox Android not syncing with hosted sync server

Hello everybody,

I hope you're doing well in theses days, and your health is good ! A few months ago, I installed with success my own Firefox sync server. It is working like a charm with both desktop Windows and Linux version, but it doesn't work with Android version. I discovered that the client try to reach a bad URL (see my preceding post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288028). Moreover, with the last version, we can't modify anymore the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri In the Nightly version, this parameter isn't present. Have we any chance to use Firefox android version with a custom sync server ? Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Hi. Nowhere can I find a place to comment on the update. I am writing this in the hope that Technical Support will read this and will implement improvements in the future.

I update Firefox to version 79.0.5 on Android. The question is whether it is possible to restore this sharing in some options or do I just have to install an earlier version for it to work?

Before the update, when I shared any page from any browser, I had the option to "share to device" without having to launch the page on Firefox. It helped a lot, flipping the pages to the computer for reading later. Now, this option is unavailable.

Now, in the share menu I only have a "Firefox" icon and the page opens in my browser where I need to find the share icon and then find my device. It takes much more time and is less intuitive. The second thing, previously, the choice of the device was easier to read because the entire name was displayed. Now there is only the beginning part of the name.

I made a screen of what it looked like before (white theme) and now (black theme). Best regards.

Hello,

Following a change of telephone, the bookmarks do not synchronize on Android. I am correctly logged into my account on my computer and on my smartphone. I tried the connection by the email address and by the QR code without success of synchronisation.

Do you have any solution?

Thank you.

Sync tabs won't work between my laptop and android

I am logged in on both my laptop (windows 8) and android, using my email. I want to sync my tabs so that I can open the same page on my phone and my laptop. I have three tabs open on my android, I go to firefox desktop, click the three lines in the top right corner, click library, click synced tabs, there is nothing there but "view synced tabs sidebar" (which is empty), "manage devices" (when I click it opens a blank page), and "sync now" (nothing happens when I click this). In my settings, under connected services, I see both my desktop and my android device, so it is recognizing that I am logged in to both places. Somehow I managed to migrate my bookmarks from my laptop to my phone, but it doesn't update when I add anything new (should it? I can't find a 'sync bookmarks' button). If it's important, I had to sign in on my phone with my email address, as the QR code on my laptop doesn't show up, instead says "pairing unsuccessful, try again". Nothing changes when I click this. Please help, this is very frustrating and I can't find anything that will explain why this is happening or what I'm doing wrong.

I have latest for today Firefox v.89 on my laptop and Firefox v.88 installed on my Android phone. I've logged in into FF account on both devices.

Now I try to sync my devices (i set to sync all data types) and android cannot get any. Neither login nor bookmarks. Also I didnt set a Master Password for logins.

By the way, i can send a tab from laptop to phone, so they are connected.

I've checked Firefox Sync troubleshooting and tips but none helped.

What shell I do?

Sending tab to mobile (Android) doesn't work; sync does

Hi.

I use ESR (78.13) for Linux on two laptops, and the current version for Android (91.3). Sync is enabled on all these devices. I just ran a test: I sent a tab from one laptop to another and back, and it worked immediately. Sending a tab to mobile fails; no notifications, nor errors. However, I can sync tabs accross devices with no problem. I can also send the URL via NPC and Bluetooth, so it is not any of the laptops, nor the device that is failing.

I have noticed that on Android, when I start the browser the Sync option is set to "Sign in to sync"; if I tap there, it shows my sync account info; it doesn't ask for my username nor password. Perhaps this is related. Please help!

P.S. I looked at this question but it is archived: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1284364. I have the exact same issue.

I've been trying to setup sync between Firefox on my new Note 20 Ultra and my laptop and I keep failing at step #7.

Sync Setup process as I understand it:

  1. 1. Login to Firefox on both smartphone and in desktop device
  2. 2. From Firefox in smartphone go to Settings -> Synced Tabs then click "Sign into sync"
  3. 3. On desktop device, go to firefox.com/pair
  4. 4. On the Firefox pairing site, click "Show Code"
  5. 5. On smartphone, click "Ready to scan" then scan the QR code on your desktop with your smartphone
  6. 6. On smartphone, confirm that the information listed for the device you're trying to sync with is correct and click "Confirm pairing"
  7. 7. On your desktop device a page opens that states, "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides".

And here is where I hit the snag. I don't understand what authentication app it wants me to use or where this 6-digit security code is supposed to come from. I have used Lockwise, I have it installed on my Note and am logged in, but I don't receive any sort of notification on my phone or on my laptop telling me what security code I'm supposed to use.

Additionally, I have tried using the email method instead of the QR code scanning method to sync and I still end up at a dead-end in the exact same spot in the process. Please help.

Hey,

as the title already describes, I currently can't get Firefox Sync back running (Android 11). I eventually disconnected the device from the account and tried to reconnect it, which doesn't work at all. It just freezes after entering my password or after confirming that I would like to pair it via firefox.com/pair.

Any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks in advance
