Windows Vista just updated to 6.0 on this machine and another wanted to add the other machine to my sync account on this machine (mt main one) it now says I have to set up a sync account, however when I put in my email address it tells me it's in use so evidently my account is still there version 6 just has somehow forgotten all about it. I have another machine to update yet but I'm not going there until this is resolved.

I was using Gmail but have tried to get away from Gmail. I still have it because of play store but it seems to stick with most of what I am doing. I think I chopped it down but with WiFi on it's hard to get away. I got updates off unless it's something trusted and there is far and few between.

Thanks for all the help

Mi problema es que formatie el computador en que cree mi cuenta de Firefox Sync. Lo que no sé es cómo funciona, lo que entiendo es que a través de uno principal se sincronizan los demás, pero si yo hago los cambios en otro computador que esté sincronizado ¿ los cambios se realizan? o ¿sólo si los cambios lo hago en el principal?

PD: Tampoco sé cuando se termina de sincronizar

When I try to add sync on my PC it asks for a key and even it's provided with the correct key from a different device it tells me it's incorrect. Is this a bug?

I had everything working. This PC contains the first step of the sync project I planned to use with two more PC's. After initial setup it works fint.

Then I decided to fix a problem I had with Firefox and Citrix and an old article told me to try and make a new profile - so I did. While it didn't solve my Citrix problem I did loose my Firefox Sync so I wanted to add it again.

At first is asks for a device which already has Sync setup. I don't have that so I clicked on "I don't have the device" then it says I need the Sync key and explains how I get from a device I don't have (really weird to do so). So I gave up.

At work I got my Sync key and saved the html file to my DropBox. When I came home and it asked for my Sync key I simply copy/pasted the key and it says the keys is incorrect.

Thought I love the idea of the build-in sync function, Xmarks makes this a whole lot easier. I hope and wish you continue to improve this already great software.

Thanks for the help :)

Not smart the way sync is designed as I used xmark and decided to use FF sync so I created an account on PC at work and now I am at home wanting to sync my home laptop. How on earth do I do that???

Ok good people here goes. I have been using foxmarks/xmarks for over 3 years. Today after FF updated to 6.0 at work, I thought it might be a good diea to start using FF sync. So I created an FF account at work and synchronised with a FF server somewhere and I was given a sync key.

So when I came home, I though I will add my laptop and my iMac to FF sync, but to my surprise, teh instructions are that I have to add a device on FF where I created my account, which is at work!

Therefore is there a way around this, or I have to call my wife from work and do it on the phone???

Thank you in advance. Cheers
