Error message: "Did you use the system camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app." No, I did not use system camera. Yes, I did activate it from the firefox app/scan button - REPEATEDLY. Somehow, firefox does not recognize it's own activation of my system camera. Please help, I need the bookmarks off my phone and onto laptop. Thank you.

Hi,

I saved a new login on Firefox Android, but this did not sync to the desktop version. I tried syncing manually on both devices (which kind of defeats the point) and still no avail. The option to sync logins is activated on both devices, so I don't know what the problem is. I have tested this twice (two passwords saved on Android) and on both occasions they didn't sync to the desktop.

I also tested the process the other way around by saving a new login on the desktop and that synced to Android just fine!

Please help.

How to save inactive tabs to desktop

I have probably over 1000 tabs on my Android that I wanted to start to bookmark in my desktop. I find that most of them are inactive now, which I appreciate the intent, but I never asked for. Now when I have time to deal with them, I have tried multiple ways to bring them to my computer or bookmark them from my phone, but nothing seems to work. It doesn't seem like there is much of anything that you can do with inactive tabs even if you share them to your desktop.

It is my understanding from trying to research this, that the Collections you create on your phone are not synced to my Firefox account so that doesn't seem helpful. Is there an extension that could solve this for me? It doesn't work to try to bookmark them from my phone because they don't show up in my desktop bookmark folder that I assigned.

The thing that has worked best so far is to Share my tabs to a temporary folder [Phone Inactive Tabs] on my desktop then search (for example: recipe) then open some in tabs and bookmark them. However, after I have categorized them into the proper bookmark folder (Food/Recipes), they disappear from that folder when I try to delete them from my temporary folder. It does the same thing if I save tabs into OneTab first.

Can someone please help me so that I don't lose years of things that I really want to keep? I would appreciate it! It would be helpful if I could even share all my inactive tabs (or even URLs) into a folder on my desktop so that I could search and bookmark them at a later time without it deleting all that work. Thanks in advance!

I recently bought a new phone. I have a total of three. The first two are semi-retired. They have aging operating systems and are no longer updatable. But I use them as wireless extension devices. About two hours ago, I installed and attempted to access Firefox search engine. I didn't remember the password. So I created a new one. That was successful. But then I had to enter a verification code. I did so and now there is a significant delay. This is in my new phone. Operating on Android 13. I'm accessing Firefox on one of my retired phones which are linked via WiFi to my new phone.

So, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?????

I have a total of three devices, all with Firefox. Only one device has a sim card that is registered and subscribed.

Can somebody sane please explain to me why firefox developers haven't implemented a smooth sync when there are Master Password's involved?

I use firefox in my desktop and in my phone and I can't get the passwords to sync due to my desktop having a master password (which firefox itself proposes to have set so that my passwords are safe) and Android not having that and so it can't decrypt the desktop passwords.

How difficult it is to make syncing between Desktop and Android firefoxes smooth when you have set a master password for the desktop version?

Even if FF for Android is not using a Master Password why doesn't desktop FF ask for the master password, the proceed to decrypt the passwords in the background and then using sync (which as mozilla says transmits passwords in encrypted form) send them to the mozilla servers? I mean even if I haven't set a Master Passowrd the passwords submitted to Mozilla servers during syncing are always stored decrypted in some way right?

I always use Firefox mobile and Firefox Sync is always enabled.

My phone is dying and I need to rescue my Firefox browsing session : It contains thousands of tabs and collections of even more tabs (it built up because I never found a way to transfer these reliably).

A tab has a history, so back and forward pages, I need the full history of the tabs! Firefox Sync doesn't transfer these!

Firefox sync transferred 2300 tabs, but it seems that this set is incomplete as there is a large chunk of tabs missing, it's probably a thousand more. I restored these on Firefox desktop in a normal PC Firefox profile, they don't contain tab history as far as I can tell.

I also used collections in an attempt to synchronise better, there's over 800 tabs in there, I don't see these in Firefox Sync either.

Can Firefox Sync be archived/exported? I might not be able to replace the phone before my sync data disappears!

Please help me get to my data !

I had many open cards and bookmarks in my Firefox for Android. But today I open Firefox and everything vanished. I haven't got Sync account so I can't synchronised old data. I find support only for Firefox for Windows problem and there is no solution for people which had problems in Android. I can't use about:profiles because it's not working in Firefox for Android. So is there any other options? I haven't removed or uninstall anything and didn't install any new version of Firefox so what could happend and how to fix it? Most important thing for me is to restore my open cards. I had more then 300 of them...

On my PC, I have deleted one bookmark that remains on my phone, and added two that do not appear. To the best of my searching, the bookmarks don't appear anywhere else on the phone.

I have SYNCed and signed out of my Android and signed back in.

Thoughts?

Android Firefox app can no longer sync. (A 10)

It suddenly logged me out, and I can log in, but I never get to set up the app, nor does it stay logged in. Deleting all app data an downloading a new copy has only made stuff worse. The log in photo of squiggly stamp no longer works either, I still have to do the annoying and slow, buggy 3 point log in, I log in, but I never get to sync. Is Firefox history too now, just like Thunderbird?
