I've set up firefox sync on both my latop (XP) and desktop (Windows 7 64bit) and on both I have the same problem (Both are running 3.6.8). I run the set up and it works fine. I hover over the icon and it gives a last update date, but when I close down firefox it doesn't remember my settings. When I start it up again all I have is the Set Up Sync menu option.

I currently use Xmarks to sync my bookmarks, but after their soon-to-be demise, I have no choice but to use Firefox sync.

I want to sync 2 computers. One in the office, & another one at home. My office computer is OK & the Firefox Sync Add-on page detects it as compatible. My Firefox at home is having compatibility problems because the Firefox Sync Add-on page detects my home FF as version 3.0.6, which is incorrect & I have checked the Help menu & yes, i currently have the latest version installed, version 3.6.10

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Regards, Gerry
