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 :)

As an old user of firefox I have recently tried to use the Sync function in order to easilly manage the bookmarks and preferences between my computers.

So I created a Sync account on my laptop, but the sync never worked. Instead my browser displayed an error message saying that the sync process encountered an "unknown error".

When I tried to synchronize my other computer with this newlly created Sync account, I only obtained error messages either saying "no account name" (that was yesterday) or "server badly configured" (today).

I also tried to reinitialize the Sync settings on the "main" computer (the one used to create the account in the beginning) but I could never reconnect again to the account using the account name, password and sync key. All I could obtain was the same error messages as those I got when try to synchronize other computers.

If i try to recreate an account using a different email adress, I also get an error message saying "unknown error" when I try to enter the new email adress to be used.

If I try to delete the first account I created on the account management webpage, I only get another type of error message saying "Oh dear. Looks like one of the dinosaurs escaped again. We keep them away from the data, so that should be safe. Please try again later when we've wrestled him back onto the treadmill".

I am surprised to observe that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AT ALL seems to be working with Firefox Sync for me so far. I was used to much more reliability on Mozilla products and services. I just hope that someone has a solution to this issue, but I can see on this forum that many people seem to have unsolved problem of the same type recently...

I have a laptop, an XP desktop which I am retiring, and a new Windows 7 desktop w/ no bookmarks other than the defaults in FF 8.0.

I want to actually synchronize the laptop and XP desktop bookmarks then move or synchronize these bookmarks to my new desktop.

Does Sync create a single bookmark file which is actually synchronized between the computers or does it copy one to the next thus creating multiple bookmark files?
