Hi there,

So thank you for you patience. I have shared the logs you mention in your question with the experts, and I have been advised to share the following for your benefit.

This is the most current guide for how to consult the Firefox Sync team in bugzilla about errors in your Firefox Sync account: https://wiki.mozilla.org/CloudService.../File_a_desktop_bug

Please feel free to use this link in other sync-log error scenarios for those lurking in this post.

The advise for your specific error are that a new attempt was made to sync when a previous attempt was not finished. That is the 'locked' error.

However, it was also advised that you share the last 5 log errors to get more information on this. Please be sure to add [SUMO Issue] to the title of your new bug in bugzilla.mozilla.org as well as a link to this thread for a smooth handoff between support and the Firefox Sync experts.

Let me know if there are any hickups in this handoff. You are in good hands.
