Hi!

I'm brazilian and I'm using the Firefox Sync. But I'm having a little problem: I want use this add-on in English, but the language its automatically changed to portuguese after installation... The worst part is that is not the portuguese of Brazil that is installed, but of Portugal!

My question is: can I install choosing the language? How can I do this?

I installed the English Version of Firefox and after I installed the add-on, ok, the add-on was installed in English, but after install de portuguese version again, the language was changed again!

Thanks!

As described in the question I cannot see the bookmarks I set up on my work pc - same on my home pc - both are running firefox 3.6.xx and I have the latest sync version. Just not showing and I do not know what I did wrong.

xmarks just did it - nothing to worry about - so I am a little disappointed. Thanks, Bemero

I have been trying to setup Firefox Sync but have made a mess of it. I don't remember setting a "secret phrase" but it thinks I did and I don't have a clue what is was. I want to do my initial sync and set up a second computer but can't logon to the Sync server. I tried an uninstall/reinstall but when I tried to start over, it wouldn't let me use my origianl account name. Can't I delete the original account/data and start over? What should I do? Help, please.

circle in bottom right of window circles for maybe 10seconds, but nothing changes. sync could tell when i have changed the password on one computer but not the other, so obvious communication. very few bookmarks and history - fresh installs

i note that others are having problems with this version.  this is the first version i have used. 

thanks john ps, any other info needed, please ask

i started using sync now since foxmarks went down and have a few observations: bookmarks sync - that feature is very, very slow. sync happens in minutes and sometimes not complete and I have to manual start sync numerous times until everything has been syncd

passwords sync - does not happen, EVER, none of my passwords are syncd.

that addon is not very good, I can't even make backups or see the contents of my sync folder online. There should be a way to save all your data so you can import it when you reinstall. having to rely on a slow and buggy sync is not good.

Ok so I recently set-up Sync when I heard Xmarks was going down. I installed it on my desktop and laptop without a problem. But recently I noticed things weren't syncing, and it's always written "connect" next to the sync icon in firefox on my desktop, but on my laptop only the icon is displayed. So on my desktop, I go to the firefox options, under the sync tab, and where there should be my account name written, it's just blank. I also can't type anything in there. If i go directly to tools -> sync -> preferences, nothing happens. If i go with tools -> add-ons -> firefox sync and click options, i get these 3 buttons written "connect", "disconnect", and "sync now". None of the buttons do anything, and to exit this "menu" i have to go through alt+f4. So mm yeah that's it, what's wrong? Thanks

The instructions say only lower case letters for setting up your sync account. However, I used Capital letters in my password and phrase. Did it just ignore the capital letters and turn them into lower case?

I have accidently deleted all my data for Firefox 3 when I uninstalled the Beta 4. I thought I would be able to get Sync to restore all the data, but it requires a Sync Key that I have no access to and cannot remember. Is there anything I can do to either A. recover my data or B. Somehow recover my Sync Key?

Whenever I try to install Firefox Sync, it tells me "You are currently using Firefox 3.0.13," won't install, and suggests that I upgrade. However, I'm using Firefox 3.6.10, so I don't know how to resolve this. (Yes I tried downloading and installing the upgrade... this is still the result.) Any ideas?

newly installed Sync with default settings in two different laptops (HP Vista 7 and Toshiba XP SP3) and old desktop w/ XP SP3. All with Firefox 3.6.10. At first didn't think anything was happening. The HP machine is new and had no bookmarks and the bookmark file didn't expand like I expected (i.e., I expected Sync to bring in the big bookmark files from the XP laptop). But now I notice that the XP laptop with thousands of bookmarks, is duplicating each entry. Yesterday there were three per, now there are 4 per. I would appreciate any help.

firefox sync does not sync bookmarks between two machines

I am trying to sync bookmarks between firefox 3.6.10 on Windows and firefox 3.6.9 on Linux. I have firefox sync plugin installed on both machines and connected with same account. If I add bookmark in Firefox in Windows, I am not able to see it in Firefox in Linux. I even tried disconnecting and connecting back and then clicking on 'sync now' buttons in both browsers but nothing works.

I checked the sync logs i Linux and it showed the error - 2010-10-14 16:02:08 Engine.Bookmarks WARN Error creating record: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [IWeaveCrypto.unwrapSymmetricKey] Stack trace: CryptoMeta_getKey()@crypto.js:158 < CryptoWrapper_encrypt()@crypto.js:70 < SyncEngine__uploadOutgoing()@engines.js:692 < anonymous()@engines.js:196 < SyncEngine__sync()@engines.js:753 < wrappedSync()@util.js:136 < <file:unknown> < batchedSync()@util.js:142 < anonymous()@engines.js:196 < WrappedNotify()@util.js:115 < Engine_sync()@engines.js:206 < WeaveSvc__syncEngine()@service.js:1559 < anonymous()@service.js:1455 < WrappedNotify()@util.js:115 < WrappedLock()@util.js:87 < WrappedCatch()@util.js:66 < sync()@service.js:1332 < anonymous()@sync.js:380

The error was shown multiple times. No such error was displayed in sync logs in Windows.

So wht's happening here and how can I sync the bookmarks?
