Pair Firefox Sync on Android with new computer

On my PC I clicked "Set Up Sync" and then "I Have an Account" ans it asks to enter the code on my other device. So I went onto my Android Samsung Galaxy Nexus and opened Firefox.

Went to the home screen and there is not Sync button. Only; Top sites, Your tabs from last time, Add-ons for your Firefox, and Synced Tabs.

Going to More -> Settings -> Sync -> Account with Firefox Sync. It only shows an option to not sync and says when it last synced. The more only shows; Sync now, remove account and help.

Where do I enter the code on my Android so I can set up Firefox Sync on my PC?

Open up Firefox and go into the settings menu. From the select the option of sync. That should open up a prompt to set up sync on your Firefox device. Here is a great support article as well. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-sync-share-bookmarks-and-more-with-firefox-mobile?redirectl...

I know that and that's what I said. Your article is the wrong way around and I've done that like a billion years ago. I want to go from android sync to pc.

The reverse is not possible. To set up a new PC you would need your user name, password and Sync key or another PC that is set up on your sync account.

Re: Pair Firefox Sync on Android with new computer

WOW This is the most confusing, repetitive, and time intensive process I have ever done with FF. I have synch codes on both devices now and nowhere to put them. Does it work? Will this show up as a synch option on my droid phone? (home >setings > Accounts and Synch)
