Convenience meaning:

"a quality or situation that makes something easy or useful for someone by reducing the amount of work or time required to do something."

Lack of convenience leads users to switch from one browser to another. I think this would be a very useful, interesting and practical feature.


Natively implement a way for Firefox to synchronize user data (passwords, favorites, history, open tabs...) between different browsers (mainly from Chrome, Edge, Opera, Brave, Vivaldi).

In two ways at the same time:

1. In the form of a question, right after installation.

2. In the form of a reminder, which appears from time to time in Firefox that is already installed. With the option to disable it so as not to disturb users.

Probably it would require a lot of technical challenges and cooperation from other browser vendors. Some of the challenges include:

• Developing a common protocol or standard for exchanging browser data across different platforms and formats.

• Ensuring the security and encryption of user data during transmission and storage.

Resolving conflicts and duplicates when merging or syncing data from different sources.

• Providing options for users to customize what data they want to sync and how often.

• Maintaining compatibility and performance across different browser versions and updates.

+1 – as long as it does NOT affect bookmarks tags!

This idea seems difficult. Only a few browsers have sync capability between desktop and mobile. Syncing different browsers would be even more difficult.

I’ve been having some of the same questions on the sync feature. Some times my passwords will sync, sometimes not. When they do, it really is a hassle to find the right one. Maybe a time stamp to distinguish the oldest to newest or simply just update the password and the creation date.
