Having trouble getting FF4.0.1 and mobile FF to sync using Win7 & droid 2.2.1

So, just installed FFox4.0.1 and decided to try the sync option with my new droid v. 2.2.1 and ran into a problem. I was following the step-by-step instructions on my laptop FF, got my mobile code - fine. Then I go to my droid and, following the instructions on my laptop, reach the sync window, where I get ANOTHER mobile code. Now each device is giving me a unique sync code, but there is no way to add/change to a new code. So, I am not able to sync.

I was wondering if the problem might be that I am using the newest FF release. Within the instructions, there were multiple differences (sub-menus, locations, etc.) that I would usually attribute to a revamp, nothing big, just made me think "this was written using a different FF."

Does anyone have a work around or solution? This isn't exactly life-0r-death, but it would be nice to be able to sync my web history and favorites from one device to the other.

I have successfully set up sync on my desktop Firefox install. When I try to add a device:

  1. I enter the 3 segment code from my mobile Firefox in desktop Firefox dialog
  2. desktop Firefox shows "Sync Complete" dialog
  3. mobile Firefox shows in options view that sync status is not connected due to "Missing password"
  4. attempting to connect shows a dialog with
   * the proper sync key (locally saved) from my desktop firefox
   * a filled password field
   * the correct email address

I tried reading your articles. I set up firefox sync on my desktop and on my mobile. The mobile says that it cannot connect because "wrong sync key" I go to the desktop and it gives me a 9 digit code to and says go to your other device and click add device. I go to the mobile there is only a key to sync -- i click on it and it gives me a 9 digit code and says go to the other device and add this code.

Has anyone done this other than some geek house experiment somewhere? The phone syncs with Google just fine. Why can't i get FireFox to sync?
