Firefox sync isn't syncing

Posted

Firefox sync isn't syncing my bookmarks (the only thing i'd like to have on both my computers) even though both pc have the latest version of firefox (i have followed the guide). A message reading "the syncronization will start soon" pops up but then nothing happens.

Hi Maria, Thank you for your question, I understand that on a Windows 8.1 device that Firefox Sync does not show signs of syncing.

Please see the troubleshooting steps recommended: Firefox Sync troubleshooting and tips

What were the results of these steps? Do you have more than 5k bookmarks? If you disconnect the account and log in one more click Tools > Sync Now

Did this help?
