Upgraded from Fedora 24 to 25. Firefox at latest version. Attempt to sync and complete sign in. it tries for about 30 seconds then a red banner message says "working". I have left it like that for hours but it never syncs. All other devices can synch fine, Bug in Fedora 25 somewhere?

hi hbay534, unfortunately this is currently a known issue in firefox 50 when you have set the browser to run in permanent private browsing mode ("never remember history" in the options > privacy panel). firefox developers are working to get this fixed in upcoming versions again...

Other users have reported that happening them over the last 4 or 5 days. Hopefully now that the holiday weekend is over someone at Mozilla will be able to look into that issue with the Sync server.
