Firefox Sync not syncing automatically

I recently set up Sync, but it does not appear to be syncing automatically. If I click the Sync button, it does indeed sync correctly, but nothing will sync unless I manually click the button. Shouldn't it be syncing automatically?

My sync will sync every 10 minutes or so if there is a network connection (this will vary from the amount being synced and how many devices there are).

However for mobile devices, Auto-Sync needs to be turned on for Firefox sync to sync automatically.

Thanks for the response. I let my computer sit out for 20 minutes, maybe more, but there was no sync. Then I hit the Sync button and I saw the bookmarks sync immediately.
