Attempting to set up Sync with iPhone. The Firefox add on does not give me the Secret Phrase dialog box. Not sure why not. Help ? Please and thank you!

I have was successful at syncing a desktop and a laptop. No luck with the iPhone as there is no "Secret Phrase" dialog box under sync preferences, manage account.

How about Sync Key?
Secret Phrase was changed to Sync Key with the release of Firefox Sync 1.5 and they probably changed that with Firefox Home, too.

Firefox Home doesn't work with *new* Firefox Sync accounts created with Sync 1.5 (released Oct. 6, 2010). Trying to log in to Firefox Home with these accounts will result in a "Login Failure User Name Not Found" error. We know this is not ideal to say the least. This will be fixed in the next version of Firefox Home (1.0.3) which is currently waiting for approval in the App Store.

New Firefox Home users, will need to use Sync 1.4.4 which can be downloaded here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/downloads/file/96423/firefox_sync-1.4.4-fx+fn+sm.xpi?src=version-history&confirmed=1

Once you install Sync 1.4.4 you'll need to create a new Sync account and complete the initial sync again.

Firefox Home 1.0.3 is in the App Store now. This fixes all of the login issues with accounts created with Sync 1.5.
