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

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.

I've searched and read several "fixes" for this problem, but they either don't make sense, are old, or don't work.

I have enabled sync on both devices. I have selected logins to be synced on both devices. I am not using primary password on either device. Still, I cannot get my passwords to show up in my android device.

Please help and keep it simple, because some of the answers elsewhere made no sense to me. I apparently need very small words to understand.

Less intuitive sharing after updating

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.

I just purchased a Kindle Fire HD Plus, and I was able to load the Firefox mobile app on the device, but I can't get it to sync with my account. Following the directions in the help articles, I tap the three dots in the upper right-hand corner. Then, I select "Settings" and "Sign in." At that point, the browser goes to the following page: about:accounts?action=signin&entrypoint=preferences, but the page never loads; it just keeps grinding away. I also tried using the QR code method, but that didn't work either. Please help.

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.

I'm using Firefox to save my passwords, but I'm having troubles in having a good experience with it now that lockwise is gone. And lockwise was not perfect either but still better.

If I create a new account on an app Firefox doesn't provide a way to autogenerate a password and then save the login data.

Please improve this feature because it is vital, especially if you deprecate the alternative.

Cheers

Hi there! I have a new S22+, all systems up to date. I'm logged into Firefox on both the Android and on my Mac Air.

Last time I migrated to a new phone, Sync filled in all my passwords on the phone. This time I'm having to copy and paste all the passwords; Samsung autopass (or whatever it's called) offers to fill them in, but of course doesn't have those passwords anyway.

What do I need to tweak or do differently to get the passwords to fill in?

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.
