Sync for Firefox

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 .

The new add-on on official Firefox store is still in review process, so for the moment, please install it just from our local server and ignore the warning on unverified author.

2. After the installation, a new tab should be opened automatically with Google login form. Please use the same Google account as the one in your mobile apps.

3. After accepting the authorization request, the login page should close itself, and the sync process will start automatically from now on. You can check and confirm the sync status by clicking the “Preferences” button on the  add-on management page.

  1. Sorry, but the syncing doesn’t work. The Add-On provides the synced bookmarks in Safari, but that was not the idea. In Apollo the bookmarks stay away.

  2. Hello.
    I’ve just bought the app for my BB Z10 and the sync it’s not working.
    I installed the browser extension on my pc (Windows 8) but the app is always telling to “visit firefox.apollobrowser.com, download and install browser extension, and then tap on the Sync button in this app” (over and over). I haven’t seen the ‘desired’ Sync button yet…

  3. The app looks great but i was kinda bummed out to find out it only works with Google accounts. I’m avoiding usage of any company like Google, facebook or stuff like that. I’m not even happy about using a Iphone in the first place :P Could you make an option that works without the requirement of a Google account? Thanks

  4. I can not figure out how to get Firefox to sync on my iPhone 4s.. Here you speak about “add-ons” and “browser extensions” what are these ?

  5. Hi.
    Having problem downloading app along with Firefox app. Correction, app download after purchase but can’t use… Saying download failed. Safari cannot download this file.

    • Hi,

      Sorry for the late response, could you provide us more details of your problem?

      Also, you can contact us at apollo-sync-support AT ihanghai.com, we are more responsive there.

  6. After the upgrade you offered, my synced bookmarks didn’t work. I followed the steps you gave, and I still have no synced bookmarks.

    • Hi,

      We are very sorry something is not working for you there.

      Could you please uninstall the Firefox add-on, and follow the guide here step by step again: http://firefox.apollobrowser.com

      We provide screenshots for every step, so you can not reach certain step or the screen displays something else, please tell us which step you are stuck in, and what error message/notice shows up there.

      Especially, please make sure you have authorized the Firefox add-on on step 2, and the “Preference” windows displayed a valid timestamp there on step 3.

      Also, it would be very helpful to give us the information of your PC Firefox installation, like: Firefox v30.0, on Windows 7/Mac OSX 10.9

      Please don’t hesitate to contact us if something unexpected happens.

      Regards

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