I installed Sync on my computer (Windows Vista) and my laptop (Windows 7 Starter) this last week. I first noticed sync working on my laptop as the theme and bookmarks from my computer had imported to the laptop. Now a few days later I've to my computer and the changes I made to the laptop Firefox have not been applied. I tried Syncing but I get an error message. I made sure the laptop was active and not in sleep mode. Also, does Syncing not affect extensions/addons?

This happened

Not sure how often

== I've used it less than a week and wasn't paying close attention until today.

This is really a minor issue, and I think it might just end up being a new feature that needs to be added to the next version of Firefox. But my problem is, oftentimes, I'm browsing my history library looking for sites that I looked for maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I scroll down quite a ways, eventually find what I'm looking for, and then click on the site to open it. The problem I have, which is really merely an annoyance, is that when I click on one page, my library immediately exits out of whatever time frame I'm currently in and sets the time frame to "Today" and highlights the most recent site I've visited, which of course, is the one I just clicked on. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm browsing my history, there are usually 3 or 4 or more sites that I want to re-visit, usually all from around the same time frame. It becomes very tiresome to have to re-click on the correct month or week, and scroll, scroll, scroll, once again, each time I want to re-visit a site, because every time I click on a site it re-sends me to "Today." I wish there was someway to change my history settings so that it wouldn't do this and that, regardless of whatever websites I decide to visit, my history library always stays in the place where I last left it. I hope someone is able to understand what I'm trying to say. Thanks for any help you can provide and don't hesitate to ask for clarification!
