How to Sync Firefox Containers – Enable Firefox Containers Sync

Need to sync Firefox multi-account containers or Facebook containers? Here’s a simple way to enable Firefox containers sync in Windows.

One of the best features of Firefox is the support for multi-account containers. Each container is its own entity and separate from each other. You can think of them as user profiles in Chrome but a lot more user friendly and easy to manage. You can create as many containers as you want.

Though you have to install a sperate add-on, creating sperate containers within the browser is helpful in day to day usage. It lets you separate the workflow and categorize accounts. This is especially true for users with multiple accounts of the same service that don’t allow multi-login (looking at you Outlook).

If you’ve enabled Firefox sync, the multi-account container add-on itself syncs automatically. However, you need to enable another feature within the Multi-account container to sync all the containers. By default, container sync is disabled. Follow the steps listed below to enable Firefox container sync.
