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.

I have Firefox 4 in my Ubuntu partition of my laptop and Firefox 5 on the Windows Vista side of that partion.

I haven't intalled Firefox for Mobile on my phone yet, but I like the idea. However the home page that I have in Ubuntu as actually a collection of three pages and, I don't really want to use on any other device. I really don't want to visit any of those three pages on my phone.

Which option would prevent me syncing my home page? Where do I find this option? Which is the best device to access it from?

Firefox Sync versions for stable, beta and aurora

I'm thinking of experimenting with the "Aurora" channel, but before I do I need to confirm how Firefox Sync will work across multiple channels.

During Sync development and through earlier versions as a stand-alone add-on the sync version could be incremented and all sync clients would need to be updated to match before sync would work properly again. Now that sync is integrated into the product the product you can't necessarily update just the sync portion to match.

Am I likely to experience problems with sync if I run Beta channel (work/home, desktops) but aurora on my Android? I don't want to be forced to move to the same channel on all devices, just to keep my data synchronised.

Is there somewhere the status of Sync across the different versions/channels is documented?

Is there any plan to maintain compatibility?

However, I can't see the bookmarks (or any other other sync data). Would you please let me know where/how I access them on my android device (Samsung Galaxy S2)?
