Notable changes
2021.06.11 - I gave up on Norton and BlackFog, and reinstalled Windows with a fresh official 21h1 image. Now I use FS-Protection Beta (Beta of F-Secure), HitmanPro. Alert and Portmaster Firewall
2021.06.25 - uninstall FS-Protection and HitmanPro.Alert, install Eset IS and Macrium Reflect, switched from quad9 to conrold free dns
2021.06.28 - set UAC to maximum.
2021.10.30 - I installed Bitdefender instead of Eset because I was offered a good discount. I also switched to Windows 11.
2021.12.08 - returned to Eset Smart Security and installled AppCheck Anti-Ransomware
What I'm looking for?

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.
