After downloading Firefox Sync and restarting my computer, I cannot find it either on my desktop or in "programs." What do I need to do after downloading, so that I can find the program and use it to update my Firefox Bookmarks when I sync my iPhone?

Since Firefox is not compatible with iPhones, my Bookmarks are not updated when I sync my phone. I was told by Firefox Support to download Firefox Sync on my computer and the Firefox Home App on my iPhone to solve the problem. I did that (I think), but Firefox Sync did not show up on my desktop on in "programs" after restarting the computer. What do I need to do to get this process to work properly? Did I miss something?

This morning, thankfully temporarily, all of my Firefox bookmarks were gone. And, synch wasn't there anymore either. I had some virus that Norton blew away this morning. I had to reboot and this happened. I blame Norton. Anyway, I reinstalled Synch and tried to get to the server to get my stuff. It asked for my password, which was fine. But, then, it asked for some other code, which no way I can remember.

Thankfully, after re-booting, my bookmarks are back. But, I still need that silly code! Thanks.

When I try to login to my sync account, under the Email address box and the password box is the notation "No saved Sync Key to use" therefor I cannot log in and I have found no way to add a sync key. I tried re-registering, but it won't let me because my email address is already being used. I am about to decide this service is not worth the hassle...

Hello,

I'm running a fresh install of Firefox - Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD amd64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20110125 Firefox/3.6.13.

I've installed Firefox Sync 1.6.2 from the add-ons site.

I was having trouble with my existing account, so now I'm trying with a fresh account - it created the account successfully, but I've never been able to get a successful connection/sync. Here's the error log I get:

% cat verbose-log.txt

Any ideas what could be going wrong here?

Thanks.
