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?

I have all my bookmarks sync'd via Xmarks, across computers. Now that Xmarks is being discontinued, I want to have my bookmarks sync'd via Firefox sync. So how do I make sure that once I install Firefox sync, I get all my bookmarks from Xmarks into Firefox sync. I assume I import, but it doesn't say anything about this in the info about Firefox sync. Before I install, I want to know what measures to take with the bookmarks from Xmarks. Thanks for taking the time to answer this, I am sure, simplistic question.

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.

I have installed the Firefox Sync add-on to both Firefox 3.6.10 and SeaMonkey 2.0.10pre on the same computer but the Bookmarks have not been merged.

I first installed on Firefox 3.6.10 and then SeaMonkey using the same account and selecting the option to merge following the instructions on the following page.

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/How+to+sync+Firefox+settings+between+computers

The about:sync-log for both browsers indicates that the Sync completed successfully.

Do the browsers need to be closed and restarted in order for the Synchronisation to take effect?

Thank you, Michael
