i set up the original account in my new installation of windows 7. I am trying to import bookmarks and settings from my old xp installation. both installations of firefox are 32-bit. I am running a dual boot system. I can't seem to get my windows 7 installation to import the settings off of the sync. Why not? Can the primary computer pull the synch from the secondary?

I'm running Firefox 4b11 on Windows 7 and nothing I do allows me to add my phone to sync. Clicking on "add a device", "change password," or "My Sync Key" does nothing, so I can't even get my sync key to add the phone manually.

Every single time I reopen Firefox, I have to set up my Sync account again by typing in my username, password, and Sync key. I was under the impression that the Sync account would stay connected. Does anybody else know of this problem and how to fix it?

I've installed Firefox sync on a new netbook running Ubuntu and it worked at first, it synced my bookmarks from my PC to the netbook with no problems.

However yesterday it decided to sync the original bookmarks on the netbook with my PC and now I've lost all of my original 100+ bookmarks, they still appear in the URL bar when I type in the keywords for a particular bookmark but not in the bookmarks menu.

How can I stop Firefox sync from repressing my actual bookmarks? How can I return the situation to how it was before using this addon?

I've installed Firefox 4.0 and created a new sync account but while trying to sync my data with Firefox Sync server I always get an error saying that it's impossible to connect to server.

All HTTPS web sites are working well.

I've tryed to use UltraSurf proxy instead of enterprise proxy and sync is working, so I guess that the problem is the enterprise proxy authentication of Firefox sync application. Any suggestion to solve the problem???

Decided to try and use the bookmark option in FF 4 Sync. I had been using the other sync options without issue. My goal was to get my work PC's bookmarks synced with my home PC. I turned bookmark sync on my work PC, when I got home and booted up my computer, before I realized what had happened FF had overwrote my bookmarks on my home PC with my work PC's bookmarks. I have now lost ALL of my bookmarks on my home PC. How do I recover these?

I didn't have time to try and save my bookmarks from my home PC, apparently when you set the one instance of sync to use bookmark they all are set to sync. I figured I would have a chance to save my home PC's bookmarks before i enabled it on that machine to sync the bookmarks.

Dear sirs c.q. ladies,

After setting up Sync on several computers, all using Firefox 4.01, I get a welcome screen stating; "Your open tabs are available under the History menu. You can also open them via the 'Tabs from Other Computers' option in the Tab List menu on your tab bar."

However, I cannot find the "Tab List menu" on my tab bar. I would be grateful if you could direct me to it.

Thanks, Jos
