I am syncing 2 laptops; both firefoxes generate the pairing code

Posted

I setup the sync login on 1 laptop first, then selected "pair a device" and it displayed the 3 numbers. On the other laptop I chose set up sunc from the tools menu, then "I already have an account" and it displayed the pair a device screen with the numbers filled in - ie it thought it was the "master". Can't get past this.

Ignore this; it seems the initial sync setup did not complete. I removed my sync account and started again, and the 2nd time it went through as intended.
