Firefox Home not syncing passwords

more options

I've installed Firefox Sync on my home desktop and Firefox Home on my iPod Touch. Selected "sync everything" and now on my iPod I have all my bookmarks and tabs correctly synced. However when I go to a bookmark which on my desktop automatically remembers the username/password, on the iPod the page loads but none of the password fields have been automatically entered. Obviously something isn't syncing correctly, but the help system offers no advice on how to solve the problem. I've tried refreshing everything, closing and opening the app (on desktop and iPod) but still no success. Any advice would be appreciated.

Sorry, the current version of Firefox Home for iPhone/iPod does not sync passwords. It only syncs tabs, bookmarks, and history.

You can sync passwords in Firefox on your Mac, Windows, and Linux computers, and in Firefox for Maemo and Android phones.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully soon the developers will work out how to add this functionality.
