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 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.

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

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?

I'm using Firefox version 3.6.10. Upon installation (repeatedly installed and uninstalled), I never received any prompts to create a secret phrase. I then select Tools/Sync/Preferences to manage the Firefox Sync Account. I select Manage Account and I see View Quota, Change Password, My Sync Key, Reset Sync and Stop Using This Account. There is no option to edit or create a secret phrase. Please help! I don't know where else to look or what else to do. Thanks!!

Since Firefox is not compatible with iPhones, my Bookmarks are not updated when I sync my phone. I was told by Firefox Support to download Firefox Sync on my computer and the Firefox Home App on my iPhone to solve the problem. I did that (I think), but Firefox Sync did not show up on my desktop on in "programs" after restarting the computer. What do I need to do to get this process to work properly? Did I miss something?

I've installed Firefox Sync on my desktop FF, but during the set up, I was never asked to enter Secret Question. I don't see "Change Secret Question" under the preference either. Therefore, I cannot log into Firefox home from my iPhone since I was being asked for secret question which I never had chance to set it up.

My Firefox version is, 3.6.11 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; ja; rv:1.9.2.11) Gecko/20101012 Firefox/3.6.11

Let me know whats going on.

This morning, thankfully temporarily, all of my Firefox bookmarks were gone. And, synch wasn't there anymore either. I had some virus that Norton blew away this morning. I had to reboot and this happened. I blame Norton. Anyway, I reinstalled Synch and tried to get to the server to get my stuff. It asked for my password, which was fine. But, then, it asked for some other code, which no way I can remember.

Thankfully, after re-booting, my bookmarks are back. But, I still need that silly code! Thanks.
