Is there a way I can opt-out from granting Mozilla the non-exclusive, royalty free, worldwide license to use the content that I may upload using Sync?
IIRC, section 5 is basically guaranteeing that you are the actual owner of content that is uploaded to Sync, and that Mozilla isn't going to get sued for copyright infringement The content you upload is secure, and not even Mozilla can access it, and the terms are only for a "license to use your content in connection with the provision of the Services".Read this answer in context 👍 1

First, this forum is user to user support. The people who could answer that don't visit the forum.
Second, where did you find the new Firefox 29+ Sync TOS? When I attempt to view the Terms of Service in Firefox 29 from Options > Sync -> Terms of Service, I end up here: https://services.mozilla.com/tos/ Do you have the URL for what you read?
1st sorry about the post. I was trying to find support for my question and ended up here.
2nd, I was on my Firefox home page, and at the bottom there is a bar w/icons like downloads, bookmarks etc. It also has a sync icon, which I clicked on. I was then asked to sign up and I always try to read the T&C and Privy. That's where I found the part that concerned me.
I can rc on the page and access the page info or inspect the element, but you will need to tell me what I'm looking for.
Again my apologies for posting here, Michell

Gotcha - I found it here - https://accounts.firefox.com/en-us/legal/terms No META data for that page for search engines to index and I didn't think about including "cloud" in search terms.
Edit: I see we have an answer from an Administrator.

Thank you both. I thought it was a bit odd that Mozilla would be asking for rights to content (however stranger things have happened). I can understand why Mozilla would need to cover itself as a company, and apologize for my misunderstanding.
