I'm on the verge of giving up on the FF Android browser. I have a FF account and have the Android app installed. When I follow the steps to pair a device with my Windows 7 laptop FF browser, I enter the three provided codes from the GS3 and wait for connection. The barber pole runs and runs: no connection is forthcoming. I've tried setting up a new account to start from scratch, but as soon as I type in my email address, it says 'already in use' (of course)

Don't know what else I can do....

I would uninstall Firefox from your S III. Restart the S III then reinstall mobile Firefox. Then before doing anything else, follow the steps again using this as a guide: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-sync-share-bookmarks-and-more-with-firefox-mobile

This way you can double check yourself and make sure you didn't miss a step or do them out of order. It also is a template of the steps you took when posting for help again, either here or at the Mozilla forums.
