Hi, I´m trying to sync my ReminderFox app from 2 computers, but I would need my Firefox sync server address, and don´t know where to find it :(. When setting up Firefox sync I just used the standard Firefox sync server, so I need that "standard" Firefox sync server address, so I could add my account name to it. Please help! Thanks a lot!Sonia

My laptop uses Firefox 3.6.8, but my Windows XP desktop is stuck at Firefox 3.0.19. (Firefox crashes when I use 3.5 or 3.6 on my XP system. I've never been able to debug the reason.)

So, will Firefox Sync work with this mix?

Thanks

Sync won't install. I've tried several times on both XP and Vista machines, and after install/restart - nothing. No desktop icon, no screen prompts - its like nothing happened. Feels like a waste of time!

How much more detail can I add? I've got Firefox 3.6.8; I've tried to set up Home - but similar experience. I re-open Firefox and everything is exactly as it was. I've downloaded to both my XP desktop (and was charged $1 by iTunes for Sync, even though it's shown as 'Free'!), and - nothing. The download process looked OK, but after re-start, there were no on-screen prompts on restart, no desktop icon, nothing - not even a saved file in 'downloads' - my default location. I'm in the UAE, btw.

I set up firefox sync on my wife's computer when I built it a few months ago to transfer stuff from her old computer easily. Her hard drive crashed recently and I thought I would be able to sync back to this computer but apparently that's not the case. I forgot the password but luckily remembered the username, so I reset my password through the link in the email that was sent to me. I can't remember my secret phrase at all, and don't want to lose everything on the server. Obviously I'm the right person since I reset the password through the email I registered with. How can I retrieve / reset my secret phrase without losing all the data on the server?

My PC at home is running the latest beta of the extension on FF 3.6. My work PC however is running the latest stable build and is thus incombatible with the newest beta. When I tell FF on my work PC to check for extension updates, it doesn't find the newest beta for Firefox Sync. Is there a page where I can directly install it from?

While setting up an account, one of the options is "Connect to." There is a drop-down with a default setting of "Firefox Sync Server." I believe the other option is something about setting up your info on a local server, but I can't find anything in the instructions about it.

I have a Western Digital network attached storage drive which looks just like extra drives to all my PCs. Can Firefox Sync save my data on a device attached to my LAN? If so, can I move the target for the existing account or do I have to make a new account?

As I understand Firfox Sync Service will store user data on its personal servers, i have 2 doubts then -

1: If a user stores his passwords to Firfox server and there is a security breach on that server and User's private data has gone to wrong hands then who would take responsibility of such incidence? How secure is the server that firfox uses in general !!

2: Once this data store grows in size, Firfox would have to use better and reliable technology, that comes with a cost tag, so would Firfox start charging those users who have no idea of this right now?
