Since there is a great chance that you are also using Firefox 4 with your Android phone or device you would like to synchronize your data between your PC and your Android phone too. You can easily do that. First of all you will need to set up the latest version of Firefox on your Android phone. Once the browser is installed for your Android phone, tap on the Settings icon and then touch “Preferences”. You will easily be able to see the Sync section.

When you switch on the synchronization option you will be provided with a verification key divided in three parts. This verification key you will need to enter into the Firefox version running on your main PC (this is the place where you want to synchronise your android phone Firefox with). On your PC start Firefox 4, on the top left corner click that orange button and go to options.
