I enjoy playing an online browser trivia game using Firefox on my Android phone. The game keeps track of your previous scores and answers, I presume through cookies. I need to switch to a new phone and would love to be able to transfer my game history to this new phone.

If it helps, the game is found here: www.immaculategrid.com. The game does not allow you to log in with a profile or anything like that, so I don't know how you could see your history on a different device

I have found some guides online that were designed to transfer Wordle scores using bookmarklets. I couldn't seem to get that to work and found some forum answers saying that bookmarklets no longer work on Firefox for Android.

I have Firefox version 128 on Android 12.

I contacted Immaculate Grid and the person who responded didn't know a way. Any help would be appreciated.

Wasn’t sure if anyone has a quicker way to do this: unfortunately I probably have a good 60-something tabs open on safari. I want to switch them over to Firefox but I haven’t seen any way to send over open tabs without having to copy and paste every link over. Not very many are bookmarked, not sure if that’s a factor.

Updating app to 128.0 started new session, made old tabs inaccessible except through sync

I updated the app to version 128.0 through Mozilla's public CDN, and it prompted me to sign in again. When I did, I saw that all my open tabs were apparently gone. However, I later found that, by checking cross-device sync, some of the tabs I had open were available to sync from the session I had open on my browser before, so it apparently thinks that my phone is a different device after this update, and my old session is now inaccessible. I would like to be able to either a) restore my old session, or b) open all my old tabs, including the ones that don't show in cross-device sync, on this new session, and delete the old one.

I setup sync, the device paired. It said it was syncing and when finished the bookmarks folder looked totally different on my kindle fire. I can not find any of the recently added bookmarks on the kindle. The History and Open Tabs are still the same, I didn't have those selected for sync. I checked and one password that I knew was previously incorrect on the kindle got updated to the correct one from the desktop. But I am worried about any possible passwords that were only on the kindle or were correct on the kindle and incorrect on the desktop, based on the bookmarks I suspect those were lost also. I was worried about this and had tried to find the profile data on the kindle but no file manager helped, I couldn't find it anywhere. And there doesn't seem to be a way to access profile manager on android. I also poked around with adb with no success. I was hoping to make a backup before using sync but I gave up and did sync anyway. Is there anyway to recover this data?

I've seen too many threads about this issue. This has been around for four years straight. No one ever managed to solve this problem and developers didn't care either. I've tried everything I've found so far: 1. Force sync on Android after sync on Desktop; 2. Disconnect and reconnect everything; 3. Uninstall and install again Firefox on both devices; 4. Clear data on both devices; 5. Login in different ways (e-mail, qr code, etc.); 6. Turn off one device, sync and turn on later; 7. Disconnect all other devices that isn't related with this problem; 8. Activate and deactivate 2 Factor login; Anyways, this sync feature doesn't seem to work at all. Almost all threads ended up abandoned, just like the app itself. Do anyone ever found a reliable solution for this?

I'm trying to sync my bookmarks from my old (samsung S9+, firefox version 126.0.1) to my laptop & new phone (samsung S21+). On the old phone all the articles (specifically https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-set-firefox-sync-firefox-android#mobile::m126) say hit the 3 dots from the firefox search screen, tap "Sync and save your data". Well, I don't see that option.

On the laptop I see the 2D bar code, just can't scan it on the phone.

Any clues?
