Firefox does not Sync my bookmarks from my PC to my Android Phone (Zombie problem is back again!!!)

Hi,

I'm using Firefox 18.0.2 on my several PC's and synch works fine between them. But on my Smasung Note 2 (Android 4.1.2) Firefox could never synched bookmarks from PC. However opened tabs seems to be synchronized from PC to my mobile phone. But none of mbookmay PC rks seems on my Phone. I got no error message after synch operation on my android phone. But no bookmarks synchronized.

All options including Bookmarks selected under what to synch menu. I also tried only to select bookmarks, but helped.

I'm waiting this feature to work during a few months, through different firefox PC and android releases, now as a final hope I'm contacting with you.

My synch usename is buyukbang@gmail.com and I'm using default Firefox server.

I'm sure there is a bug blocking my bookmarks to be synched to my Android Phone , I really want to help Firefox devs to fix these bug.

Regards....

Hi there. Sorry for delay in responding... Kindly try uninstalling the firefox and then re-install it once again. See if that helps. If not, then follow the below instructions:

1. Launch Firefox and click on the "Firefox" menu in the top left corner. 2. Select "Bookmarks" from the menu and select "Show All Bookmarks" from the cascading menu. 3.Select "All Bookmarks" in the navigation menu on the left. 4. Select the "Import and Backup" menu and choose "Export Bookmarks to HTML." 5. Name the file in the File Name field and choose the location where you want the export file to save. Click Save."

Import Bookmarks

6. Copy the file to a flash drive and move it to your new computer. You can also attach the file to an email, email it to yourself and download it on your phone.

7. Launch Firefox on your phone. Select "Bookmarks" from the menu and select "Show All Bookmarks" from the cascading menu.

8. Choose "Import Bookmarks from HTML." 9. Navigate to the file that you created from your computer and click "Open" to import the bookmarks.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the answer !,

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling twice, unfortunately this doesn't help Smiley Sad

For your second recommendation, html import, I believe this will work, but this is not what I would like to have. I need continuous synchronization between my PC's and my Phone without manual import export.

Sİnce firefox mobile have this feature, I belive there is a bug that should be fixed by Mozilla developers.

Unfortunately sync stopped working again for the las 4-5 days. My mobile device does not receive bookmark changes in my PC. Sync tab says process is successful but does nothing really.

Any comment please?
