On my Nexus 4 (running Android 4.3) am unable to sync desktop tabs, history, and bookmarks from desktop Firefox (on Win8).

I have done a clean reinstall of the latest versions of Firefox on both systems, and also tried registering and syncing new accounts. Each time I get the same problem: both systems claim to have synced, but the data is not available to view on the phone.

None of the other similar issues in the help section had solutions which resolved my problem. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Best, James

Well, after an age, it's begun to work. No idea what prompted it or if just has a mind of its own. Closing the thread.

More details: I set up a fresh install of Firefox 21.0 on another laptop, and managed to sync all data across no problem.

That is, tabs, prefs, history, bookmarks, etc., from one laptop to another are completely synced. But if I want to view anything that's on the Android Firefox, or on the Android if I want to view what's on the other computers, nothing is available.

All three devices are connected to the internet over the same WiFi network.

Same thing here. Sync is extremely slow to sync bookmarks with Firefox mobile. It sometimes takes days to even sync a single bookmark, if it syncs at all.

Hmm, well that just seems ridiculous! I have quite a lot of bookmarks, so maybe this is a problem. But my quota fill comes to around 2MB which is nothing. Frustrated, anyway.
