Keep in mind that other than Firefox Sync, Firefox account can be used for Pocket for Firefox and accessing your Add-ons.
It is a simple task. Without further ado, let’s see how to create a Firefox account.
Create Firefox Account and Set Up Firefox Sync
In this instance, I am creating Firefox account on Windows PC.
However, you can do the same in Firefox for Android too.
Click on this URL.
Type your email address and then click “Continue” button.
Provide your password and age in the respective fields. Select the check box if you want to receive the monthly newsletter from Firefox.
Click on “Create account” button.
Now, you can choose what to sync. By default, all options are selected.
After you choose as per your need, click on “Save settings” button.
Now, you need to confirm your account.
To do that, click the button (see above screenshot) in the “Confirm your Account” window and it will take you to the email address that you have provided while creating the account. Find the email from Firefox.
Once you opened the email, click on “Verify email” button.
That is all. All are done except one more step. That last step is installing Firefox on another device and set up Firefox Sync in it.
Here’s why the last step is needed as explained by the Firefox:
In this instance, I am installing Firefox on my Android device and set up Firefox Sync in it.
Install and open Firefox app.
After that, tap Overflow Menu (three vertical dots) > Settings.
Tap “Sign in.”
Now, provide your email address and password that you have used for creating Firefox account.
Tap “Sign in” button.
That is all. All are done. You can see that the data gets synchronized among both the connected devices (In our instance, Windows PC and Android).
How to Disconnect a Device from Firefox Sync
Before proceeding with the steps, keep in mind that disconnecting is different from deleting Firefox account.
The disconnect will stop the corresponding device from synchronizing with your Firefox account.
Tap “Hamburger” icon and click on your email address.
Now, click “Disconnect” button.
Click “Disconnect” button in the confirmation popup.
Tap Overflow Menu > Settings.
Tap your email address at the top.
Scroll down until you find “Disconnect” option. Tap on it.
Tap “Disconnect” on the confirmation popup.
