My laptop uses Firefox 3.6.8, but my Windows XP desktop is stuck at Firefox 3.0.19. (Firefox crashes when I use 3.5 or 3.6 on my XP system. I've never been able to debug the reason.)

So, will Firefox Sync work with this mix?

Thanks

Sync won't install. I've tried several times on both XP and Vista machines, and after install/restart - nothing. No desktop icon, no screen prompts - its like nothing happened. Feels like a waste of time!

How much more detail can I add? I've got Firefox 3.6.8; I've tried to set up Home - but similar experience. I re-open Firefox and everything is exactly as it was. I've… (read more)

How much more detail can I add? I've got Firefox 3.6.8; I've tried to set up Home - but similar experience. I re-open Firefox and everything is exactly as it was. I've downloaded to both my XP desktop (and was charged $1 by iTunes for Sync, even though it's shown as 'Free'!), and - nothing. The download process looked OK, but after re-start, there were no on-screen prompts on restart, no desktop icon, nothing - not even a saved file in 'downloads' - my default location. I'm in the UAE, btw.

I've set up firefox sync on both my latop (XP) and desktop (Windows 7 64bit) and on both I have the same problem (Both are running 3.6.8). I run the set up and it works fine. I hover over the icon and it gives a last update date, but when I close down firefox it doesn't remember my settings. When I start it up again all I have is the Set Up Sync menu option.

I currently use Xmarks to sync my bookmarks, but after their soon-to-be demise, I have no choice but to use Firefox sync.

I want to sync 2 computers. One in the office, & another one at home. My office computer is OK & the Firefox Sync Add-on page detects it as compatible. My Firefox at home is having compatibility problems because the Firefox Sync Add-on page detects my home FF as version 3.0.6, which is incorrect & I have checked the Help menu & yes, i currently have the latest version installed, version 3.6.10

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Regards, Gerry
