Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

I've installed Firefox Sync on my desktop and Firefox Home on my iPhone 3Gs. However I can't log in to it on my phone. It keeps coming up with an error message: "Login Failure - unspecified failure". Well how the heck am I supposed to know what the problem is if it's "unspecified"? When going to help page it says go to tools, options, and click on sync and change your password. I don't have that option. In fact I don't have the ability to change anything. Am I doing something wrong? I don't know what to do at this point.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Today

Every time I try to login with my sync account (that I'm already sure works because I've used it on multiple computers and Firefox profiles), then I get an error message that says "unspecified error." I know that all my information is correct, and I even tried to create another account on a different computer, which did the same thing. When I tried to follow the steps on https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+Home+does+not+work, then, when I opened the options dialog, the expandable section that says "Manage Account" was grayed out, so I couldn't change my password or my secret phrase. Please help with this issue.

What is up with firefox video. It stopped working right about 2 or 3 weeks ago. youtube is a black screen with an arrow to click. You click on it and it reads "error. try again later". Now facebook videos won't play. youtube actually came back briefly, so I thought firefox had solved an internal glitch. Videos are just not working. It has got to be a firefox problem because crome and IE work fine. Very frustrated! :( I am about ready to just leave firefox permanently. Too much trouble switching to crome or IE when I want to play video. ugh!!

I just installed Firefox Home to my iPod Touch 3G (running iOS 4.0) and so I start the application, sign in with all my correct details. The application starts to sync and some 10 minutes later... it finishes with no data whatsoever: no tabs, no bookmarks, no history.

I just ran a sync from Firefox and it's set to sync everything. The same account is being used for both Firefox Sync and Firefox Home. Why is nothing appearing in my app?

I set up Firefox Sync on my iMac and MacBook Pro and it works flawlessly.

I installed Firefox Home on my iPhone. I selected "I Have A Sync Account" I entered my user name and password. I have never set a "Secret Phrase" I used the Sync Key, both with and without the "dashes".

I search online to solve this problem. It said I could reset my "Secret Phrase" in the preferences for Firefox Sync. I did not see this option.

How do I find my Secret Phrase or reset it?

Thanks.

Trying to sync with Weave Minimal Server http://tobyelliott.wordpress.com/2009/09/11/weave-minimal-server/] does not work: FFHome asks for /weave/user/1.0/username/node/weave (404, since the server does not implement registration functions) and stops there, instead of trying to get /weave/1.0/username/info/collections which should be the sync url.

I've had this problem in the past and I had to move to Opera for a while but got solved I don't know how. Today when I turned on my PC today the flash updater appeared like always and I updated it. Then I go to youtube and I can't see the video. It was fine yesterday. Then I realised no flash content was loading. It just shows an empty space where the flash thing should be. I tried uninstalling flash and firefox and installing a previous flash and nothing works. What can I do? Oh, I use firefox 4.

While Firefox Sync is itself comming with instructions on how to setup an own sync/weave server, the "Firefox Home" client for iPhone doesn't seem to allow to enter the servername manually so that own server setups are currently not support in version 1.0.

I highly opt for integrating a possibility to specify the servername for an own sync/weave server because otherwise the sync client is not useable for users running their own server. And as Firefox Home is open source it should provide the same functionality like the firefox sync client in firefox itself.
