Firefox Sync

Firefox Sync makes it easy to access Firefox bookmarks, opened tabs and browsing history on your iOS or Android devices.

This is for Firefox Sync v2.0+. From v2.0, we have introduced an major update to the core logic of the sync process, and we are no longer maintaining the old ones, thus please make sure you are using the latest version of mobile apps and Firefox add-on. One simple rule: always use the latest possible app/extension you can find on this page, and make a clean install if something doesn’t work. If you still have trouble with setting up, please don’t hesitate to contact us on: apollo-sync-support AT ihanghai.com

    

We are serious about your privacy, the syncing process is encrypted and all your data are stored in your own Google Drive account to ensure safety, using an app only private folder.

Tutorial of setting up your Firefox browser on PC/Mac

1. Use Firefox browser on your PC/Mac to open this link: download and install our Firefox add-on .

  1. Me, too. My synced bookmarks had worked until yesterday. I followed the steps you suggested with no luck. I’m very unhappy.

  2. You took a great product and screwed it up!!! I upgraded, and am now unable for the first time to sync to my iPad
