The main reason is the feature named 'Sync'. Firefox Sync enables you to bring your bookmarks, passwords, history and even open tabs from all of your other devices. Once Sync is setup, you will no longer have to type in long URLs or remember passwords. Your Firefox will have all that and more ready for you, right at your fingertips.

for more info how to setup sync, follow this link
