I have several system that all use Firefox and are configured to use sync. All of them, but this one sync fine. The one with the issue is on a RHEL 7.5 host and is running FireFox 52.8.0. What is odd is that I was able to register the system with sync, but when I click on the sync icon, nothing happens. The sync logs indicate some errors:

Actually, I am logged into my Firefox account. The problem is when I click on Sync, nothing happens and I see all of the errors mentioned above.

Thanks, Jon

So I disconnected from my firefox account and then reconnected. I received an email that stated: "New sign-in to Firefox" but the browser itself is stuck at "Working". The "Working" banner has been up for 30 minutes now. If I go to //Preferences/Sync, I see "jon@irishtech.org" is not verified". I have not received an email at my xxx@xxx.org account (I have verified that the Spam filter has not intercepted the request). If i click on the "Verify Email" button, I get this error: "Unable to Send Verification. We are unable to send a verification mail at this time, please try agai..."

Again, this only happens on one of my systems and it is a RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.5 system. All of my MacOS and Windows systems have no issues authenticating to my firefox account. i have attached the latest sync log file.

Hi, please edit out your email as this is a public forum and bots and spammers will get it.

Again, need to make a account from the bottom of that URL at bugzilla and then login and give all the info your giving us.

Unfortunately we do not have access or able to send messages to the people that look after Sync, which is not us. Bugzilla please.
