Xmarks Sync is excellent but is closing down. How can I move to Firefox Sync from Xmarks Sync without loss of what is currently synchronised or any other damage unknown? I use two or three computers almost all the time (foolish, I know, but that's history)!

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!

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.

The article mentions a "secret phrase" but I got a "Firefox Sync Key" instead. Is this the same thing?

Well, I got the impression from your original instructions that I would be able to set my own "secret phrase", but the screen pictured in the instructions page never appeared. I got instead another screen with a "Firefox Sync Key" which I was required to print or save.

Is this key the same as the secret phrase you mentioned? If so, can I change it? If not, how do I get to create a secret phrase?

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

Somehow recover my Sync Key?

ALL of my Bookmarks have all of a sudden just disappeared! I thought that using "Firefox sync" was supposed to eliminate problems like this. I can't seem to find any way to restore my bookmarks either. What can I do?
