Hello I'm trying to make a switch to FF from Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome but I can't get saved login IDs and passwords to sync with FF for iPhone and Android using the same account. Any ideas? Here are a few more details: 1. All other items, like, Bookmarks, Tabs and History are syncing across all devices, no problems. 2. I deleted all old login IDs, bookmarks and everything stored in my FF account previously, then imported new and updated ones from Microsoft Edge. 3. Login IDs and Passwords are all showing up and working with Auto-fill in FF for desktop. Just that these IDs and Passwords are not showing up in FF for iPhone and Android despite manually syncing multiple times and ensuring that Login check box is ticked on. 4. New passwords created on FF for either iPhone or Android are syncing across all devices (including desktop), but the vice-versa (imported and new ones saved on desktop) are not syncing with mobile devices. 5. I have tried re-installing FF on all 3 devices and still only passwords remain to be synced. Rest everything syncs perfectly. 6. I have tried importing from Google Chrome as well, but the same problem ensues.

I've tried all your "Help" and "Support". No success. There is no Sync and Save on my iOS, so I cannot sync with my desktop Firefox. I would like to send a tab (which also does not work) from my iOS to my desktop in Firefox with no success. Could you please have instructions that pertain to your actual version of Firefox on iOS? Mine is up to date. I still need help. I have already synced manually, but that doesn't solve the issue.

iOS password/ logins not synching between Desktop and mobile app.

Hello,

I have not been able to get my Firefox iOS app and desktop to sync. On both my desktop and phone logins are selected for syncing but each device has its own list of logins which they wont share with each other. I can sync tabs and send tabs from desktop to my phone and the same the other way around. The only thing that doesn't seem to sync is passwords/ logins.

I have uninstalled the app on my phone I have logged out and back in I have cleared connected devices on my account and relogged in

None of the above have worked in getting my device to sync.

When I do a fresh install I only get back the logins that I've manually entered onto my phone. It seems to have it's own list separate form the desktop and neither device is sharing login sync.

Any help would be appreciated, I have 300+ logins on my desktop version and have only manually moved over a small handful to my phone because manually doing so is a pain and they won't sync if I update one on the phone or computer to the other device.

I'm on iOS 109 and desktop version is 109.0 (64-bit). I have been trying for weeks on and off to resolve this issue.

Firefox syncs my passwords etc perfectly across four devices: laptop, desktop, phone and iPad. When I use the password menu item in Firefox it always shows consistently synced information. But Firefox on my iPad doesn't use this information whenever I try to login to a site. It reverts to a (very) old Safari password list from years ago. Firefox is the default browser on all of these devices. This behaviour seems to date from the end of Lockwise about 12 months ago. My iPad is a 5th generation model running iOS 15.6.1. How do I point Firefox at the right password file? Any suggestions please? Cheers Ian

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

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.

Hi, everyone.

I have noticed that when I go to youtube on my ios/ipados devices, that they do not sync properly to other devices. When I load a video, the tab sync will still show on other devices as the Youtube landing page (not the video title it should show) until after I open another tab and load/refresh a page in the new tab. This was also a problem on Mac firefox but appears to have been fixed with the latest MacOS Firefox update. It is still a problem on iOS/iPadOS even after the latest Firefox update today.

A second concern: when I use reader mode, I prefer having a light background. But when my ipad switches to dark mode (and my firefox browser follows suit, since I have it set to device theme), I notice that anytime I leave the app and come back to it, the background keeps switching back to dark. Sometimes it will switch over in the middle of reading an article. Also, changing the font will similarly revert the background color to the theme color.

Thanks for looking into these issues.

My Firefox passwords do not sync on my iPhone. I have recently switched from Chrome to Firefox, and imported my passwords to a new account from Chrome, though they do not appear on my phone. I have tried clicking "Sync Now" on both my phone and PC to no avail. Is there any way to force the passwords to sync or even import them through a csv file on my phone? Thank you.

Hello I think I have a uniquely dumb problem. I am locked out of my primary email address due to hacking, so cannot reset its' Firefox account by just getting a link ..but it was attached to a secondary email address, and for that one I *do* remember the password - I think However when I try to log into that, I get this message --> "primary account email required for sign in" - and just so you know I cannot actually access the email of this secondary email address, as it's been shut down! So what can I do? Can you change the email address on file for my Firefox account ? The primary address was [edited] @gmail.com, and the secondary address was [edited] @twc.com (but I no longer have an active time warner cable account) - thanks! Vikram Singh, [edited] @yahoo.com

I downloaded a 2+ GB file with Firefox onto my phone. Using the Folders app in iOS I see the file in Firefox’s Download folder.

I connected my phone to iTunes on my Windows 11 PC & clicked on File Sharing > Firefox. I see the Downloads folder & it says it’s using 2.75 GB, so the file is there. But when I double-click on the folder it won’t open & show me the file in it. OK, so I try to drag & drop the whole folder onto the desktop. As I drag, the pointer changes so it looks like it’s copying. But nothing happens.

I’ve already tried re-starting iTunes, & reconnecting the phone to the PC. Nada.

About a month ago I restored the OS of the mobile in which I had many tabs open and synchronized with my Firefox account. For a while I could see them in the desktop application. However, recently I have realized that they no longer appear. My mobile device keeps seeing me as linked. I find it very unpleasant to lose the information I had stored in those tabs. If someone knows something, or has any ideas... Thank you!
