Hello,
 
One day Firefox just stopped syncing bookmarks on my phone. I read somewhere online that Firefox will only sync bookmarks if there are less than 5,000 bookmarks but, I don't have anywhere that many. I know Firefox desktop recently has gone through some UI changes. Any ideas? Could the bookmark sync feature for Android have gotten destroyed somehow? I really need my bookmarks syncing..
 
Thank you.

Make sure your still signed in as you know to use the bookmarks sync you have to have an account. I have noticed my android sometimes for no reason signs me out. and is it giving you any errors or messages when you try to sync?

I'm def signed in. I'm not getting any error messages. Just when I go to the Bookmarks tab on mobile, all I see is this:

And last I checked, Firefox has no Play Store support to speak of.

Well, after disabling sync and re-enabling on desktop, I'm met with a sync error.. So, I guess I now have to investigate from here.

Can't believe Firefox's shitty support  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:   :banghead:

 

I subscribed to this support ticket https://support.mozi...estions/1058356 but, they haven't replied in months!

Don''t forget your phone has a separate account under accounts (like your mail accounts, twitter accounts) where you have the options to sync certain items, this will apply to all browsers like chrome  and firefox.  Data syncing has nothing to do necessarily with the program itself but rather the interaction between the application and its need to listen to its account (many times syncing these accounts or contacts are off by default).   As a Mozilla (Mainly firefox) contributor to the development areas as well as to their twitter accounts and websites, I have been running development versions, not nightly, for a long time and I know they along with seemingly everyone wants to change their way to authorize a user.  Mozilla multiple systems, and it is is working to try and see for the general public to pool them into using one that they call "persona" so that you don't need a hundred passwords for every area of Mozilla.  If you're looking for options, you may actually wish to give firefox nightly "Aurora" a try and see what you think ;)

Haha. I fixed this issue some time ago by deleting the account & making it again. I guess it just needed a fresh environment. I forgot to post it back here in sheer excitement when I finally got it fixed. I just celebrated and cried and fell asleep and forgot to post back here. But, thank you for your replies :)
