Sync characters change quickly; cannot sync?

Posted

I have Firefox with sync setup on a mac and need to sync to my new Firefox in RHEL5, and when I choose Set Up Sync->I have An Account, the 3 boxes for keys just shows constantly changing numbers and letters (I'm referring specifically to constantly changing numbers/letters while I watch the dialog box, not different numbers/letters on reopening the dialog box.

I can't sync because of this, what's the deal?

Hey,

I see you're still using Firefox 10. Can you please try to update to Firefox 12 and see if the issues persist?
