Never post any personal information because an adware robot could find it, and start sending you all kinds of spam. This includes e-mail, phone, and home information.

Please remove that information from your post.

OK. I tested the steps you posted above and it works for me.

  • Options/Preferences -> Firefox Account

Note that you may have to refresh the Firefox Account page (F5).
