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.

My history older than 6 months is suddenly missing. I am not sure exactly when it went missing but I have always had history back to June 2009 listed. I have backups so will investigate and recover some how.

Is there a limit to how much history FS will save??? If so we need to know about this -- in big bold letters!

Is it possible that it has been consolidated with new visits to the same sites, overwriting the visit date? That would be pretty sophisticated. Firefox Sync seems a little young for that yet.

I am only using FS to sync history between all of my profiles. I use Xmarks to sync bookmarks -- not tabs, or history -- yet! I have my history set to save 720 days in all of my profiles, on all computers. This has not been a problem so far, even when I forget to set one profile and it only holds 30 days - no loss. It doesn't seem to slow down Firefox either.

I also have "vacuum places improved" and "check places" installed. These are the only other things I can think of that might mess with the places.sqlite file. If you need a list of my installed extensions, no problem. There are a lot, but I'm good at working out all the kinks and everything plays nice with each other right now.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I've set up firefox sync on both my latop (XP) and desktop (Windows 7 64bit) and on both I have the same problem (Both are running 3.6.8). I run the set up and it works fine. I hover over the icon and it gives a last update date, but when I close down firefox it doesn't remember my settings. When I start it up again all I have is the Set Up Sync menu option.

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?
