Lost the ability to transfer collections
Was painstakingly transferring my collections of bookmarked links from my old Android phone to my new one (please fix this so entire collections can be moved as one, rather than individual components). Not halfway through yet; all was going well, and suddenly I got the message "Unable to send - Retry." Multiple tries; no further success. Nothing had changed re the wifi connection for either phone. Hoping this is something simple.

You can share entire collections using the share icon visible when the collection is open.
Yes, I'm aware you can move all the contents of a collection when it's open -- but they're moved as individual items to the new location, not as a folder containing a collection. You then have to corral them each into a folder again in the new location.
Also, this doesn't solve the problem I posted (not sure if that was your intent), which I've now encountered twice while moving my collections, of getting, say, a dozen collections moved and then being stopped in my tracks by "Unable to send - Retry." It's not a matter of having too many tabs open at once, as I've been careful to close them as I go.
It's like FF reaches a limit (this is how many collections you're allowed to share in a day?), and that's it. I have to quit and come back another day, and it will work again.
I think that there may have been an issue linked to this that has been resolved in the latest update to Firefox for Android that arrived earlier this week.
Please look out for an update to your copy of Firefox for Android that will arrive soon.
