Firefox for Android not retaining login

I use a Huawei phone, native to China. All settings are United States and America for location and language. Also, I am a 20+ knowledgeable computer technician with significant Android experience.

I have logged into my account using the scan process from the desktop application. Regardless of my efforts to have the FireFox Android app retain the profile, when I exit the provisioning screen I am logged out.

Additionally, in settings I am presented with an option to "Use domestic China services", which I turned off. Again, I all settings for location and language are United States and English (US).

This feels like an aggressive malevolent effort to persuade me to uninstall FireFox and select an alternate default browser. Very frustrated.

'Please make whatever changes necessary to enable users to associate their profile as appropriate, without forcing them to use an unfamiliar language, and preventing them from connecting with their desktop account.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Is there a way to sign out of your Sync account on your phone such that your master password would be required to be input before connecting again? I couldn't find a way to log out on my phone so I ended up just simply deleting Firefox from the phone in order to secure the passwords and transitioning to Chrome.

Hello,

Today I wanted to switch from Chrome to Firefox(103.2.0) on my mobile and after logging in everything seemed fine until I had to login into an account. I discovered that none of my saved logins have been synchronised. On desktop I use Firefox(104.0)

  • I do not use a master password
  • I tried to synch manually through settings
  • The browsers across all platforms are up to date

How can I synch my content through my Firefox account?

Thanks.

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.
