Firefox needs a reading list and sidebar like chrome and edge which should be made import and exportable in case of browser switch.

I've been doing a bit of "internet cleanup" today between the web browser, iOS browser, and sync. for the last few years I've been saving articles and websites in a saved messages folder on Telegram, but I'm quickly moving away from that platform and adopted the Mozilla chat through Element for better security. I have all these links in Telegram and first considered Pocket, but quickly realized that requires downloading another app to my iPhone where there is no seamless integration between the Firefox iOS browser, Firefox desktop browser, and Pocket. (OI!) So then I looked at the Reading List option in the Firefox iOS browser. My first thoughts were ones of elation...and then very quickly fizzled to angst and disappointment when realizing the Reading List is not available in the Firefox desktop browser even though I have all devices synced. 😞 I realize it will take quite a long while for this feature to be added to the desktop broswer and it's all based on user demand. Makes sense. But this seems a bit inefficient, wouldn't you say? One would think features available in one breed of browser would be available in all since the coding and development is essentially the same (minus the platform specific coding requirements, of course). I guess I have no option but to create a bah-zillion more Firefox bookmarks, which just isn't efficient or very well organized. So if you could just bypass all the boilerplate jargon of "oh, we can't do anything unless there is user demand" that would be great because whether it's two users now who are asking or 10,000, it's still demand no matter how you look at it.

A syncing Reading list for desktop and mobile

Why has the mobile version a Reading list but the desktop version doesn't?

I know the desktop version has pocket integrated and there are multiple extensions for this but those don't sync with the mobile version.

+1 for this. I’m primarily a Mac user but since I also use a Windows PC, and because Origin is only on Firefox , I use Firefox.

 

But Safari has that sweet sweet reading list feature in both mobile and desktop versions, and it syncs between them to boot!

Please create an reading list feature in Firefox that syncs using Firefox sync.   

 

Pocket is difficult to use and it seems more concerned in suggesting articles to you than managing a user-defined reading list.

synchronization in the reading list

hello, a great improvement would be to include synchronization for the reading list, as for example it happens in safari that you can see the same files on all devices.

In the same way, incorporate it into the desktop browser for Mac Os, in my opinion it is one of the few things that this great browser lacks to be perfect

another thing that does not make sense that the reading lists between ipad and iphone are not synchronized, what is the use if each one shows different things?
