firefox is not syncing

Posted

Hello. I'm using sync feature to sync bookmarks between my home PC and laptop. home PC is running on Win 7 and laptop is on Win 10. Since certain day my firefox sync have stopped working anymore. I tried logging out and back in, disconnecting and reconnecting devices, resetting firefox account password. I've ensured that both firefox installations is up to date (version 71.0 (64-bit) at this moment). about:sync-log usually shows a bit different log each time i'm trying to sync. But here are some examples: https://pastebin.com/eMLBzJak https://pastebin.com/Q3ghxDPw

Please help me...

hi, there seems to be a network error when trying to connect to the sync servers - maybe something on your network is blocking it. what's happening when you manually try to load this url: https://sync-765-us-west-2.sync.services.mozilla.com/ ?
