I am sending tabs from Firefox mobile to Firefox desktop (Arch Linux) (on a regular base for years). All worked fine. After a new install two weeks ago the Firefox desktop receives the tabs and opens them as supposed. But after a day or three when I open Firefox desktop it opens all previous tabs again together with the newly sent tabs. I deleted the Firefox profile and installed from Firefox sync but the problem occurs. I deleted all devices in sync and added my 2 devices (desktop and mobile) again but it didn't work. Does anybody have a similar problem (and a solution)?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Thank you @jonzn4SUSE. I had a similar idea, too: Usually I install from the repository. Now I tried the flatpak. After playing around BOTH versions now work fine (fingers crossed). So I hope it is solved.

Try downloading another copy of Firefox, run it from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
