Firefox Sync asks me to setup every time I start Firefox. Weave did not do this. I just had to enter the User ID, Password, Passphrase and then sync. Now, I must select that I use Sync on another computer, enter the User ID, Password and Passphrase and then select Merge and then click Finish.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== After Weave became Firefox Sync

Open Firefox. Click on Tools-->Options-->Privacy. You probably have "Clear History when Firefox closes" checked. Click on "Settings". Under "Data", un-check "Saved Passwords". Click "Ok" twice and re-start Firefox.

This should prevent your Firefox Sync username and password from being cleared each time your re-start Firefox.
