I've spent a long time tidying up the passwords on my main PC. Every so often I did a manual sync too. I also imported into Edge occasionally and I noticed a few sites' details there that I had deleted from FF. Strange! Anyway, I finished the tidy up and went to my Android phone (set up to sync) and did the sync there and it looked OK. I then had the idea to look here for the 'extra' one I had seen in Edge and sure enough it was there! I also noticed lots of others I had deleted from the 'Master'. Changes to passwords had been replicated successfully though. What is the logic for syncing in these instances? I then signed out of FF on the phone to stop the sync and deleted one that was common to both and then signed back in and synced - it did delete it from the PC when I synced that. This makes me nervous to delete them all from the phone when signed out and syncing upon re-connect. So, what is the safe way to make the password details from the PC be an exact copy on the phone - no extras?! My thoughts were to disconnect the phone (but hoped it would remove things), delete the details manually if required, sign back in and re-sync. But I don't want to risk the sync actually wiping out the contents of the PC! Thanks!

I have tried this multiple times after force closing and restarting my iPhone, all to the same result: When I tried to use the + to add a new website, username, and password, the screen just flashes, and does not actually add the new info. Strangely, it offers to input a password when I place the cursor into the box for entering the brand new password I am trying to save. This seems to be a bug, but I cannot find how to report a bug.

Hi all.

My sync is only sometimes working. I notice that when saving a bookmark and trying to find it on another device. I sometimes have to manually resync it or wait for a few days to get it shown on my other devices. Same with the tab sharing across devices.. In most cases it doesn't work at all..

I recently got a new phone and have logged into Firefox Sync. I can see all of the tabs from my old phone, but how can I open all of the tabs at once in the new phone without having to click one tab at a time? I've tried going on desktop and opening the sync account and using crtl+h to see all the tabs, but I only open the tabs that were on my phone on the desktop browser, not send the tabs to my new phone.

I cannot share a tab from my phone to my tablet or vice versa. I can send tabs to my desktop computers, and my desktop computers can send tabs to my phone, but for some reason Firefox Sync thinks that my phone and my tablet are the same device.

Curiously, when I go into my Firefox account settings and change the name of my browser on each device, as soon as I sync, the names are swapped. Specifically, I named Firefox on my phone "S23 Ultra". When I checked the settings on my tablet, it showed that that was also the name of Firefox there, too. So I changed the name of it on my tablet to "Tab S8+". As soon as I hit "Sync Now," my phone changed to "Tab S8+". And when I changed my phone back to "S23 Ultra," as soon as I synced my tablet, that became the name of my tablet browser, too.

So I have a new s23 and just sync'd it. I can send tabs from the android 14 phone (Firefox 124.0) to the Win10 laptop (Firefox 123.0.1) but I cannot send them from the laptop to the phone. I hesitate to change the laptop to v124 because of the error, as the laptop works with the other devices I have.

I've open/closed Firefox (both places), signed in and out (both places), restarted the phone and the behavior is the same.

Suggestions?

Since attempting to sync my desktop and mobile app, I've been observing (at times beside myself with frustration) consistent failure of the password manager to have logins available at time of need. In fact, when I go to find the saved passwords manually from settings>logins & passwords>saved logins, the page comes up blank. No saved logins, no passowords, nothing at all.

When it would auto sync or I would manually hit the sync button, it would hang and take more time than I was willing to spend watching to finish. Then there would be problems with web pages not saving current progress & rolling back tens of minutes to a previously seen point, as if I had scrolled up and/or hit the back button a few times. Or tabs would disappear and their site history ghosting me, as if I had never been there before (I suspect after I've spent time on another app & Firefox falls out of the phone's memory, but I'm only tangentially informed on how phone hardware operates and I'm making a somewhat educated guess here (the most dangerous kind)).

I have found a workaround, i.e. close and restart the Firefox app. But this is an understandably annoying solution to perform every time I need to log in to a website. Besides that it isn't supposed to work this way, this solution only works for an indeterminate time before the password manager once more eats lead and fails to perform its duty and the app must be manually restarted again.

I believe I've since turned off sync, but a quick check on mobile shows it was synced 3 minutes ago (though all the boxes under "choose what to sync" are unchecked), so I'm unsure if it's really off or if it's trying to sync nothing and this is where the problem has diverged from whatever started this disaster. I don't care about syncing anymore, I just want my mobile experience to once again be effortless. As much as possible. Within reason.

Firefox for iOS always worked with autofill until a couple of days ago. I cannot for the life of me get it to work. I deleted app, reinstalled, resynced and it still doesn’t work. I can see my passwords in the passwords section under privacy but it won’t autofill. I’m wondering if the latest update broke it.

I have 2fa enabled on my account, is there a way to skip/disable the third step where I have to enter a code from an email? It's already redundant with 2fa. Plus, the runaround of "enter your email, enter your password, get email, enter the code, oops your password is wrong!" is irritating enough :) It just seems unnecessarily difficult.

I use synching between phone and desktop. I deleted some bookmarks on my phone and synced phone and desktop Firefox. I would expect that the deleted bookmarks also disappear on my desktop FF under "Mobile Bookmarks", but nothing changes. Worse than that, after I added one more bookmark on my phone and synced, the deleted bookmarks showed up again on my phone. It seems the not deleted bookmarks on desktop are transferred again to my phone. This is actually not what I want...
