SMS message sent during the firefox installation was linked to a suspecious tracking website

I installed Firefox on my Windows 7 notebook. I wanted to use the sync function, so I registered for an account, and the process forced me to enter my cell phone number which made me hesitate for a while, but I entered my number anyway. An SMS message was sent to the phone with a link. I followed the link and my network security blocked it. Because I have a DNS filtering service installed in my network for better safety, I examined the security log carefully and the website the phone was trying to open. It was app.adjust.com. I searched up about this website, and most of information says it is an app tracking service for developers. But one website commented in 2015 that this URL is linked to the app created by an organized criminal. To my surprise, all firefox apps that I had been using in different computers were trying to report to the same website which has been blacklisted by my network security. I used duckduckgo as my search. See https://pcvirusescleaner.blogspot.com/2015/07/how-to-remove-appadjustcom-conveniently.html for details.

I think Mozilla should give up all attempt of tracking if you are so careful for privacy. Download count and website visit count should be enough. Please do not follow the path of Google and other websites have been doing. Your reputation will get damaged. I will uninstall the firefox browser until further notice. I will notify all my staffs and friends about this finding. I will not post anything on social media yet because I still have trust on your organization, which is now rapidly turning into something else. Please give me with enough explanation on your relationship to app.adjust.com and your view to the negative comment on this third-party service.

My ISP is Comcast however the actual email site for some reason does not contain "all" of my contacts, or very old ones at the least. Thunderbird contains all my recent email contacts and therefore I'm wondering if I can transfer them via TB instead of Comcast?

The steps shown here are not what I see using my Samsung Galaxy S6, not even remotely close. I shouldn't have to ask this question. This support site should provide a Users Guide in addition to answering FAQs. With the basics and even advanced topics covered, there would be fewer questions and fewer frustrated users. IF users need further help after searching there, then this form should be available for trouble shooting. Did I just completely miss the Users Guide somewhere?

Lastly, basic questions like the one I've asked above should be included in google search. General questions usually have a a simple explanation listed first thing before any search results BECAUSE TIME IS VALUABLE. Waste my time and I'm DONE with your app no matter how "cool" it is!

Send to reading list from Firefox for Desktop?

Hi,

I really like the reading list function in Firefox for android but I would like to be able to send articles to the reading list from my desktop Firefox and have them sync to my devices. I have seen some things on how this can be done but none seem to work for me.

Has the desktop reading list functionality been discontinued? Only "History" and "Bookmarks" come up under my sidebar menu. Also the about:config entry "browser.readinglist.enabled" does not come up when I search for it.

Is there a way of achieving what I am trying to do or not?

Thanks Niels Healey

I want to import my bookmarks into firefox for android from an file based format. html, json or xml anything... Using Sync is * not * an option because I * never* provide sensible personal information to cloud services. The most secure way to protect sensible data is simply not giving it away...

This requirement is not a new one: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/986583 https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/979658

Please take a stand why you still persist to meet this simple requirement from many users though privacy is a major principle in the Mozilla Manifesto https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/manifesto/

I have version Firefox 38.0.5 on my computer and the current version of Firefox on my phone. So far, I have used Firefox Sync to get my tabs opened on my computer through the History option, no problem there.. however, I am having trouble getting the Sync Tab option to come up on my Android device. The phone currently has the General and Private tab options only. I would like to know if this is an easy fix or a compatibility issue with my phone.

I have 1) updated firefox 2) synced, de-synced on both devices 3) restarted both devices numerous times

I have the latest version of Firefox on my desktop.

I just installed Firefox on my Galaxy Note 8.0.

I set up a sync account as instructed and both devices show I am logged in with those credentials.

When I open Firefox on my Note, under Top Sites, it shows what appears to be some History from my desktop.

Under Bookmarks, it shows the 4 options that came when I installed Firefox.

Where on my Note do I find the Bookmarks from my desktop? Under History, it agains appears to show some History from my desktop.

I think I need to clear all the history associated with the earlier sync between my desktop and lap top. I've gone through the steps delineated in your FAQ files to no avail. I was successful in generating a new 'sync key'. but that didn't do the trick.

It seems to me I need to totally eliminate any Firefox retention of the past syncing so I can start this new sync with a clean slate.

I hope someone can help me...I need to have ready access to my laptop tabs on my smartphone...thanks,,,
