Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

Sync to iPhone Firefox Home, from Firefox, not working. Nothing happens. PowerBook G4 OS10.5.8. Firefox 3.6.6 iPhone 3G 4.0.1 Firefox Home, last. Have tried to disable all other add-ons. Have tried to use Refresh in the iPhone. Have tried the Sync Now. Have tried the Reset Sync, the bottom option. But no syncing of bookmarks or tabs. Do you have any ideas on what to do?

Chosen solution

I finally got it to sync properly. Seems like the problem was that my username had capital letters in it.

I signed out of FF Home and logged back in, only this time I wrote the username in all lower case letters. This seemed to fix the problem.

Same Problem here. I am using an iPhone 3g with Firmware 3.1.3. My Operation System on my PC is Win 7 32 bit. Firefox Version is 3.6.6 also.

The Sync on my iPhone took almost 20 minutes, but after that I have nothing synced. Tabs, History and Bookmarks everything is empty. When I try another sync it gets synced rather quickly, but with the same result, that I have nothing on my Phone.

Same problem here. I have an iPhone 3G running IOS 4.0 and I'm using Firefox 3.6.6 on Ubuntu 10.04. It syncs tabs and bookmarks really quickly and then takes for ever with history but then has nothing to show for it. No tabs, no bookmarks, no history.

Question owner

Same thing - nothing has synched to my iphone despite mutliple attempts. I have Iphone 4 and all software is updated today

Question owner

3Gs Firmware 3.1.2.

Exactly the same for me... FF Home seems like a fantastic idea but getting it to work seems impossible.

Syncing takes forever (10-20 minutes) and leaves me with no content at all. Tabs/History/Bookmarks all say 0 after the syncing process.

Question owner

I have the same problem with an iPhone 4 and Firefox 3.6.6 on Windows 7 64-bit. Syncing takes a long time the first time, but nothing actually happens. Then's very quick the second time, and still no tabs, history, or favorites are synced.
