Error while syncing
Locking due to the age of this thread.
Receiving a new Win7 box at work. I installed Firefox sync 1.4 and could not sync. I uninstalled and reinstalled with version 1.3.1.
Every time Firefox opened

As of today my Firefox sync won't work either. I'm also on 1.4 but I'm on Windows XP. I just get the alert icon in the bottom that says "error while syncing".
pasted code in Code box -MJB

Same thing here, firefox sync does not sync...
Same here! Win7x64, Firefox 3.6.6, Sync 1.4
same .. And all my password are on it ... Any one have a solution?
Firefox Sync 1.4, Firefox 3.6.6, Windows Vista (also fails on Win7).
Firefox error console has this line when I try to manually sync:
2010-07-12 18:20:06 Service.Main WARN Unknown error while downloading metadata record. Aborting sync.
It's all working again. Seems to have been an issue with the server and not on the user end?
Nope, still not working for me. Not fixed.
While I'm at it, let me just say for the record (and for any of the dev team that may be reading) that I *hate* the new setup where you can't see the status on the synchronization on the status bar and you have to use the menu to initiate a sync. PLEASE bring back the old interface!
Maybe they should put up a system status page.
I posted earlier, and now my firefox sync seems to be working again (Win7x64, FF 3.6.6, Sync 1.4). Perhaps it was something with the server.
Same problem on Win7 and Mac. FF 3.6.6
Same problem here. I thought it was down to a new build but I guess not. WinXP. FF 3.6.3
Same problem here... And yes, bring back the old interface, seriousely, I hate to not see anymore what's happend.
Ditto on both XP and Vista machines.
I also hate the "new" interface
Same here, for two days now, both on windows and linux.
I have the same problem (Firefox 3.6.6 + Firefox Sync 1.4 + Windows 7)
Same issue on both Win7 x64 and MacOS 10.6
