Synced tabs wiped after firefox crash, how to do proper backup?

Hello everyone

Recently, my Firefox on iPhone crashed (again ...) and after I restarted it, the familiar "restore your last session?" prompt appeared. Acknowledging it however yielded an empty Firefox, with all previously open tabs lost (about 120). Nothing was displayed in history under "recently closed tabs". Normal history however had been retained.

As this instance is included in my Firefox sync account, I hoped I could recover the tabs from there, to no avail. It seems that, after FF crashed and restarted, it just wiped all its tabs from sync.

Most people with similar problems are advised to restore their tabs from browsing history. This is an excruciating task, as it is most difficult to filter through all several months of visited pages and extract just the last instance of all previously open tabs. The small FF mobile menus make this even more difficult.

As I don't think these reliability issues will be resolved soon and backups are prudent one way or the other -- How can I back up the data in FF sync? I've found the extension About Sync which at least shows all tabs from all devices that are stored in Sync. When using the export data function however, only bookmarks are included. So I'd have to do a monthly clickfest, manually opening all object trees and saving the HTML page, which feels most awkward in the "digital age". Also, if this extension is discontinued, I'm f-ed again.

Is there any better way to back up FF sync data?

Thanks and best regards

Hi, I have moved to a new iPhone. I have got the Firefox app transferred over and have tried to synchronise having clicked the synchronise button. However, despite doing this several times only a handful of sign ins have come across. I have enabled facial recognition. I have on some occasions had a Firefox message screen come up: ‘To use the autofill feature for Firefox you must have a device passcode enabled’. I have tried googling this and am no better informed.

I saw a few others posting about this on reddit, with no solution. I usually try to keep my open tab count low on my phone, because this happened one time maybe a year ago. My recently closed tabs only shows those from this current browsing session. From my pc, synced tabs only shows the few that are still left open. I don't have the Inactive Tabs option switched on. My pc's open tabs are unharmed (phew). I DID clear cache and cookies on my pc earlier today, but that shouldn't close tabs on another device!!

This used to work, although it has been inconsistent and I've found in the past that I've had to log out and back in on my devices to get it working again. This isn't working this time, though. Any help is appreciated.

I am having an issue sending a tab to another device from the Actions menu on IOS. I used to be able to click the Firefox icon and it would give me the options to: Open, Load, Bookmark, add to reading and send to Device. When I select "Send to Device" it says "You don't have any other devices connected to this account available to sync.

It is worth noting that if i am in firefox i CAN send tabs and all the available devices show up. This issue is ONLY from the action button which I use quite a bit to send stuff to my desktop to read later.

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).

The instructions on the screen (see attachment) bear no relationship to what appears in Firefox on my iphone - Sign in to Synchronise is not in the menu So I can't find "ready to scan".

If I scan with the scanner in the Firefox top corner I get told I must pair from within the App - where I thought I was.

I tried Manual Sync as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-logins-firefox-ios but again screen didn't look like that (see what I was supposed to see attached) - account name not at top - I was signed in - and no sync circle.

Baffled and frustrated.

Used to work beautifully.

Or will someone fro Firefox come up with the fix for that glitch. Waiting for a couple days. After that, Firefox will be history for me. And oh yes, I will talk about this every chance I get while on TV.
