Send Link to Connected Devices using Firefox on Android

Using the Send to Device feature, Firefox browser allows you to share and send links between connected devices. You can share the links between the Firefox browser installed on different devices when it is signed in and sync with the same Mozilla account.

The link will open in a new tab on the selected device in the Firefox browser. If the link doesn’t appear automatically, manually trigger the Sync Now command under the Profile menu.

Sign in and Sync Firefox with a Mozilla account

Before sharing links on Firefox between a computer and a phone, you need to connect and sync the two or more devices. For that, you need to sign in with the same Mozilla account; if you do not have an account, you can register one for free.

After you have a Mozilla account, you can follow these steps to sign in and sync the browser on different devices.

  1. Launch the Firefox browser on your computer, and click the More horizontal 3-bar icon for the menu list.
  2. Select the Sign In button in Sync and save data menu.
