But for the PlayStore version as you know, it requires Firefox Nightly.
But does the Fennec version have syncing feature?
This is one of the reasons why I use Fennec. Usually I like to use beta versions of apps, but the nightly version is too frequent updates and unnecessary possible problems.

Fenec supports synchronization with Firefox just like regular Firefox for Android, you just need to log into your Mozilla account. :)

WoW brilliant. Yeah, that's the reason why I also stopped using Nightly. Thanks for the Fennec info. I'll install it.
