Set up a Firefox sync from a Firefox sync android office

I'll have set up Firefox sync on my desk (which I had to replace) having only one active sync Firefox on my Android tablet. I can't find a way to either insert the usual three four codes of characters pairing, or to recover the key synchronization for manually entering the office. Googling the problem, I found suggestions a year ago to use some plugins (the most recent is subject: synckey key) to display the key, but unfortunately they are no longer compatible with the new firefox (I use v17). So my question is: is it possible? Or shoud I get all my favorites from the Android device as long as I can and reset the sync account?


Use the menu accounts in android rather than system settings in the Firefox settings, it is different and has an option of coupling. (credits go to Nawak)

  • Firefox on Android sync returns "could not sign."

    I have Firefox for Android beta v39 and Firefox for Android v38 installed on my phone (Lollipop 5.0.2) and little matter which of these browsers, I try, when I have connection for synchronization, it gives the message "Unable to connect"... I have installed on my linux desktop v38 and it works with the same credentials. I tried to reset the password, and it also does not help, because the problem is always the same... Desktop Sync works and it does not work on Android. Any suggestions?

    I understand that Firefox for Android returns: "could not sign" I am happy to help you. Let's try a new connection by removing the account first.

    1. First unplug the account settings under 'Accounts' Android
    2. After listening to remove, open a new window in Firefox
    3. Go to
    4. Connect once more and make sure that in your account settings, that data usage is set to auto sync.

  • How can I configure mobile android password manager copy all of my passwords from firefox to my office?

    How can I configure my new mobile password manager for my android phone copy all of my passwords from firefox to my office?
    Right now, I noticed there is only about 8 passwords listed.
    But my office saved password manager has about 50 listed.
    This makes me think that the android app is to choose only to remember what I saved directly with my android. I want to capture all my saved passwords from my desktop also.
    I tried recheck my firefox sync options, but only confirmed that I don't have this game automatically synchronize all my data (including passwords.)

    I found that I have to press the 'Menu' (three horizontal lines in a square) in the mobile view and connect until I'm able to meet Firefox on Android.

    Now that you're on your desktop: try passwords uncheck in synchronization preferences, wait a few seconds, then check again. Then on your phone, the settings of the open Android app, accounts & sync, choose your Firefox Sync account, then Menu > sync now.

  • No Firefox for Android of Firefox desktop sync passwords?

    I do understand that my Firefox for Android is able to get the passwords stored in Firefox desktop.

    I configured on both sync and works correctly for the tabs and bookmarks.

    Passwords, I don't know: I don't seem to be able to access those that are stored on my laptop to mobile.

    Here are a few reasons why passwords are not synchronized.

    • Using the functionality of master password on Firefox for Android. If you don't know what it is you using it. If you are fairly long disable for Firefox for Android to sync once, and then re - activate the password.
    • Site is to save the password for you by using cookies. The remember check me box on the login page of many sites. Firefox Sync will not sync cookies.
    • The site has another mobile page. is another site Firefox will not share a password for a site on a different subdomain, because there is no guarantee that they are both managed by the same company.

  • Why the Firefox on Android is so great? It uses 20-60 MB and fills the volume? (App: 24MB.) Data: 30 MB +)


    Firefox using too much space on my Android phone, and this causes problems on my phone for example errors "Low on space". Android applications are unable to obtain updates to security due to the use of the high area of Firefox, which is a security problem.

    Why Firefox uses as much space and how to prevent or solve this problem?


    I am running Firefox on Android 2.3.4 18.0. I then Firefox my 8 GB SD card. This problem also occurs well in Firefox 19 & 20 of Firefox.

    Firefox uses a huge amount of space. This is the largest app on my phone by a long shot. It seems that Firefox will grow without limits, until what it triggers a "low on space" warning on the Android device. When this "low on space" warning is reached, Firefox becomes unstable and I'm unable to install other Android applications. Often applications cannot be updated due to high usage space of Firefox and cannot receive updates of security which is a security problem.

    Please see the following screenshot that shows that Firefox uses about 30 MB worth of space and is approximately two times larger than the next largest app, Google Maps.

    If I go into ' settings: Applications: storage use: Firefox ", Android tells me that Firefox uses the following amount of space:

       Total: 29.60Mb
       Application: 1.85MB
       Data: 27.76MB
       Cache: 0.00B

    When Firefox is freshly installed, the "Total:" use is closer to 3MB. But in the coming days, this number increases to 30 MB.

    Why Firefox uses as much space and how to prevent or solve this problem?

    Thanks for pointing the "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" option I understand the implications of privacy to store the cache outside the profile directory, but I don't have much choice. Firefox as an App has increased slightly with the latest version (8 MB to a value of policies) and my phone was so full that the system was not the application updates to security for other applications. I have that is need to get this resolved the problems of disk space or I will stop using Firefox.

    I did it for free space:

    1. Create a new folder on my SD card ("/ mnt/sdcard/something /")
    2. Under ' subject: config' set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory to match the new directory created previously.
    3. Restart Firefox (I had to kill the Firefox application)
    4. Went to a few sites such as Facebook and Pinterest cache-heavy
    5. Checked the cache didn't work under ' subject: cache'
    6. Remove old files from the cache in my foo.profile/Cache Directory
    7. Went to "subject: config' and came back some of my manual settings that it took months to save disk space."

    Now Firefox uses 10 MB less space on the memory of my system, then he has done it before. I can also make the larger cache (much larger) which will speed up the display of Web pages.

    I couldn't create a symbolic link from my old Cache Directory to the new directory of Cache.

    More info about "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" can be found at

    Firefox for android will get firefox Hello and when? Or will never happen because telefonica is not interested to have in firefox for android?
    Hello, Firefox is the right thing and it would be much larger if it is available on android for direct use from phone to phone.

    I don't have an ETA for you, but it is spoken, here is a list of bugs to integrate the UX, etc.:

  • Firefox for android mobile phone said app can access the following on your phone... take pictures and videos? Is there a work around? If not have to uninstall.

    I have Firefox for my laptop and wanted to use it on my phone Android mobile phone. When I saw under permissions that the application can access photos and videos and can take photos and videos that seemed very odd. Does anyone know of a work around to keep the app to take photos and videos without my permission? I do not want to uninstall but can allow the intrusion of privacy.

    We have a help article about why this permission is here: how Firefox for Android uses the requested permissions?

    Specifically, some sites may give you the option to attach or embed an image directly from the camera instead of going through a folder of pictures already taken. In order to support this feature, Firefox requires permissions to access the camera. However, according to this article, Firefox will ask your permission before leaving the site to use the camera. I don't think I have ever seen this in action.

  • Firefox for Android only displays the desktop version of gmail rather than mobile.

    Android only question.

    I prefer to access gmail via a browser rather than the gmail app. Tests of other browsers on Android (Chrome and Dolphin) I see that they display a mobile-specific version of the gmail Web site.

    Firefox for Android only displays the version of office on my Nexus 7 (5.1 runs Android 2012) - and therefore more difficult to read and use. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, Yes, it's that Word annoying Tablet.

    What I'm going to describe is difficult to type, so I hope that you can open this page on your tablet.

    Select (0) and copy the following text on your Tablet if possible to avoid the excesses of type: Android; Tablet;#Android; Mobile;

    The forum linkifies this first part, but it is not supposed to be a link.

    (1) open a new tab to Subject: config (type about: config the Awesomebar and hit the arrow go or tap Enter).

    You can bookmark it for easy future access.

    (2) in the search box, type agen and make a pause while Firefox filter list

    (3) scroll down to the bottom and look for a preference named general.useragent.site_specific_overrides and confirm that it has its default value true. If it is set to false, press the reset button for it back to true.

    (4) scroll back up and press the big button "+" to the left of the search box to add a new parameter

    (A) the name of the preference must be com (for all Google sites) com (for Gmail only)

    If you type this, beware of the correction automatic insertion of spaces and be sure to remove those.

    If paste, remove the part after that.

    (B) on the right side, type Boolean and in the popup, change it to a String

    (C) the value of the preference should be Android; Tablet; #Android; Mobile; -in other words, substituting Mobile for Tablet.

    If you type, pay attention to the excess spaces.

    If gluing, remove the preference name and extra space before this part.

    (D) then click on create

    If you open must now use the mobile layout.


    Edit: To clarify the name of preference options.

  • How to force Firefox to Android to use LTE instead of WiFi?

    Firefox for Android AUTOMATICALLY reconnects to the WiFi if I have NEVER connected to the WiFi in the past. Sometimes I want to use WiFi, and sometimes I want to use LTE with Firefox. How can I force Firefox to STOP using the WiFi connection and use the LTE connection? Note that simply kill WiFi on Android does not work; Firefox simply uses his past knowledge of the WiFi network and access code to launch WiFi alone. I HATE the apps that think they know better than the user...

    Sorry, the user misfires (once again for the millionth time, I guess).

    WiFi was set to "Auto-connect" at the launch of applications of high-usage data. Switch is in settings, connections, WiFi (tap to set up). I never watched here because I've always had the 'OFF' WiFi and thought (wrongly) that there was no switch configuration for a feature that was 'OFF '. Live and learn. Sorry again to waste your time; Maybe this will help another smartphone newbie...

    Thanks much for your quick, complete and CORRECT answer to my question, Roland.

    Note: This will be you temporarily disconnect all sites, you're connected to.
    To clear the cache and cookies, follow these steps:

    1. Tap the top right menu. It is the icon with 3 bars. On older Android devices, you will need to press menu hardware key, and then click more.
    2. Press settings.
    3. After that, you will pass to the settings screen. In the display settings, look under the privacy and security section, and then select clear private data.
