Directly sending links to another synced device from Android share menu

In older versions of Firefox for Android, when accessing Firefox through Android's share menu multiple options appeared: open in Firefox, add to bookmarks, and send to device . This latter function allowed to quickly send any link from any Android app to a desktop device in a few clicks, without needing to open Firefox for Android itself, navigate its menus, nor having to deal with new open tabs. Unfortunately, in current versions of Firefox for Android, accessing Firefox through the...

Transfering Passwords to a new computer

I have installed Firefox on a new computer. To copy my saved passwords, I had to export as a json file, import into MS Edge and then copy the passwords from edge. This can encourage people to use Edge instead.

Sent Tabs History

There are times where I have sent a tab to my phone but accidentally swipe away the notification or something else happens like had to restart my phone & lose that tab I sent. Would be nice to see a history of tabs sent between devices so if you lose them for whatever reason you can easily recover them.

Firefox sync more option

Hi, I think we should have more options for firefox sync... At least, the one to be able to define a master and a slave for the synchronization directions (I'm fed up with doing the menage on one side and that it comes back as soon as I open the second...) Ideally to be able to give rules on a case by case basis and the direction of sync: FF_pc1_home <--> FF_beta_phone (sync: tab, password, bookmark) FF_pc1_home --> FF_work (sync : bookmark) FF_pc1_home -->...

Sent tabs history

Kind of like a synced tabs page, but for seeing which pages you’ve sent to various devices. Not sure if you could just show links that were sent and not yet accessed/read on the target device. Or maybe keep a separate history log?

Separate Shortcuts/TopSite for Desktop and Mobile

Currently Shortcuts/TopSite is synced between Desktop and Mobile. There may be sites that I do not frequent on mobile and vice versa. In addition, site accessed on Mobile are usually prefixed with ( m. example.com) which does not make sense to have it show up on Desktop. Also, dismissing sites on Mobile should not equate to dismissing those sites on Desktop.

Firefox sync speed improvements

I would like to see improvements in Firefox synchronization. It's a slow sync. In case of Chrome, it will be reflected immediately, but in Firefox, even if you add a bookmark, it will not be reflected unless you manually press the sync button between your computer and smartphone now. Or, after a few minutes, it will be reflected, but could you add a setting that allows you to change the sync speed there? Or you want the server to sync every 10 seconds (preferably immediately). Please...

Sync shortcuts from Firefox Home (about:home) between devices

It is possible to sync your Bookmarks, History, Open Tabs, Logins and passwords, Credit cards, Add-ons, and Settings between devices. Given that the Firefox Home (about:home) shortcuts are sort of bookmarks as well, it would make complete sense to enable their synchronisation as well. Alternatively, Firefox Home (about:home) shortcuts could be mirrored in a special folder in bookmarks, similarly to Bookmarks Toolbar or Mobile Bookmarks.

Reinstate TopSites

The one most important feature of Firefox is the ability to utilize TopSites, and that seems to be nonexistent in the newest version of Firefox. Firstly the TopSite grouping was removed a couple of years ago, and now TopSites altogether seems to have been removed. If either of these features are still available, please let me know how to access them again. Thanks for the consideration
