    anyone using Firefox for iOS ?

    I Have been using for about a month and works fine but I cannot find my synced bookmarks even though I am logged in to Firefox sync

    Any one know if the bookmarks from sync are accessible in the iPhone / iPad browser? Where?

    I thought it wasn't released yet. Are you compiling from github?

    Now that I loaded it, tap the address bar to get the icons, then the star. They might be under Desktop Bookmarks (they are on mine).

    The syncing clearly has some issues. Only a small portion of my recently used tabs show up. Also, my iPad tabs don't show up on my iPhone.

    At least the settings has a feedback button, which I've used. It's a 1.1 product. So far, it's making me very happy overall. Wish it had a password viewer like Safari settings.

    hey thanks - I don't see any bookmarks from the desktop - or how to access them. I am going to re install - I had a pre release version that was available in Canada - maybe the new release has some bug fixes. Browser works great - just cannot see the bookmarks.

    I have been unable to get FF saved passwords to work on my devices. Am I alone, or is it not implemented yet?

    Passwords working for me, had an FF (iOS) update a few weeks back and after the update bookmarks and passwords worked with FF sync. In fact it seems better than Safari - but that is probably because I use firefox more often than Safari on my MBP and firefox has more recently updated passwords.
