I'm running FF 3.6.7 and FF Sync 1.4.1. Now the display from the taskbar has gone missing.

Hello Jacques.

I can't be of much help, I'm sorry, but I think this might be by design, and not a bug. I do know that Firefox 4's inbuilt sync won't have a constantly displayed status icon, so that might be just how they updated the extension, to work like it will work on Firefox 4. All in all, it shouldn't be necessary for the user to constantly check if its browser is synced. It should always be.
