My synced passwords do not appear on my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A when I open an App. It gives the message "UNLOCK FIREFOX" and goes to the numbers screen. It asks me to enter my passcode and I don't have one for Firefox. I have been trying for over a half year to find answer to my problem. Due to auto updates my Android phone stopped entering my log in information on my Apps. This 71 year old is desperate to find an answer.

Hello there,

I have a problem with firefox sync. I moved to Firefox from Opera and moved the passwords to the account but it does not sync with Android. I do have lots of passwords saved to the account but firefox sync does not sync them on my device. I tried clearing cache, reinstalling, relogin, all 3 at once, even restarting the phone in between but still no password is synced.

Regards, Wojciech

I have Firefox sync set up for my desktop and Android. For the past moth or so Firefox on Android can't send tabs to my desktop as it says "No devices connected". Despite this I can send tabs from my desktop to the Android install.

I am using the latest ESR on Windows, and have used both the latest main release and beta versions of Firefox. This issue has been ongoing for several versions. Full uninstall and removal of local files for both devices has not helped, neither has signing in an out. It seems that the Android side simply cannot see there's other devices period.

A lot of users are willing to move to Firefox but issue like this is what keeping us on the Chrome Browser.

I've tried many times but my Firefox android is unable to fetch all the log in details from Firefox desktop(which is imported from chrome). This makes the android Firefox lesser useful as we have a better alternative as chrome and the password manager on chrome is very powerful when it comes to auto - sync and auto - fill using pop up or google keyboard, I hope this issue gets fixed in future releases.

The Firefox Android is only able to fetch the logins that was saved using Firefox browser also it's not instantaneous, sometime we have to click on sync now on both pc and android to be able to view the login on android(if saved on pc), it is not the same for bookmarks.

The bookmarks that are imported from other browser can be synced unlike logins and passwords.

Background: My PC's HDD crashed. I had to start from scratch with new Firefox install. I don't know my password to access my account to sync passwords and bookmarks. However, I have a synced Firefox Mobile install on my Android phone that can access them just fine. Question: I need my password. Is there any way to find the password on my phone so I can log into my Firefox account on my PC? Or, is there perhaps a way to work backwards, syncing the PC to the phone with Recovery Key?

I recently bit the bullet and am transferring from chrome to firefox. I was able to transfer my hundreds of book marks from chrome into desktop firefox, but I cannot get them on my phone. I saw one user suggest doing a "sync now" to force it, but when I tab "sync now" nothing happens and it continues reading "Last synced: Never" and I am logged into the same accounts on desktop and mobile.

How do I get this to work?

Hi,

I'm using Firefox for all my devices. I activated synchronization of all items from all devices. But the History is not synchronized between devices. Meaning, from my Windows Firefox, I'm not able to see the history from my Android device, and vis versa.

I'm using last versions of FF from all my devices (I always update to last version when one is available).

Is there something I'm missing?

Many thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Is there a way yet to sync collections across mobile devices? I saw a few threads from a couple years ago or more where it's mentioned they may work on one. Another comment says they can't be synced to desktop. Has there been an update to enable it across phones in the last couple years though?

1. Open Firefox on your mobile device. 2. Go to the menu ( on iOS or on Android) and tap Synchronise and save data 3. Tap Ready to Scan and hold your phone over this code

But this command #3 is simply is not there in the Android FF settings. I see only Synchronise Now/ Device Name / Sign Out, plus Choose What to Synchronise. Nothing else. Any ideas?
