Firefox 6 Linux - Sync encountered an error while syncing: Unknown error.
Linux (Ubuntu 11.04). Firefox 6. The syncing doesn't work anymore. This message is displayed at the bottom all the time:
"Sync encountered an error while syncing: Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this action."
Retrying doesn't help.
i have the same problem: win7 / FF6 and macosx10.6 / FF6
however sometimes bookmarks were synced.
Same problem. Windows 7 (64bit) and FF 6
Googling for this error message shows this problem has been around for years!
I have yet to find any solutions in the links which Google turns up; how can that be after all this time?
It sure would be nice if the message were more specific than "Unknown error."
I have 3 devices synced. All are running on my home LAN.
- A Win7 machine running FF 6.0.1
- A WinXP machine running FF 6.0.1
- An iPhone 3G running FF Home
Only the Win7 machine has this problem. The other 2 devices are fine. Color me perplexed.

I had some luck doing the following - Go to https://account.services.mozilla.com/ and login using your sync info. Find the link to Clear Cache data and clear your sync cache (first time failed, then worked). Then do a manual sync to get back in sync. Seems to have cleared up my issue for the time being.
