Send Tab to Device does not work from Firefox to Firefox for Android


(Firefox for Android :: General, defect)

Firefox 68
Not set



Firefox 68


(Reporter: jtbates, Unassigned, NeedInfo)


User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.14; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0

Steps to reproduce:

I have Firefox on a laptop with Mac OS 10.14.5 and Firefox for Android on a Pixel 3a. I've signed into Sync on both devices, as well as from an additional profile on the laptop for testing. I verified that all three sync devices (two laptop, one phone) show as connected on For some reason the phone is listed as "Firefox 68, Android" with a laptop icon and under "Firefox for Android" it says "None connected".

Actual results:

On the phone I can send a tab to the laptop. On the laptop I can send a tab from each profile to the other. However, the phone is not listed under "Send Tab to Device" on the laptop in either profile.

Expected results:

The phone should be listed in "Send Tab to Device" and I should be able to send tabs to it.


I tried to reproduce your issue using a MAC OS 10.14 and a Pixel 3a (Android 9) on the latest release versions of Firefox but was unable to.
Could you provide us with any details or repro steps that may caused this issue? Also have you tried Disconnecting and then Signing in again?
