I may be misunderstanding the nature of syncing here but my question is this:- I have 3 devices that at various times in the past have been synced but no longer are. Now I want to sync them all again but I want the information that is on my PC, I'll call this the primary device, to by synced to the other two. In other words, I don't want to loose any of the tabs, passwords or bookmarks on this primary computer and I what them transferred to the other two. So, how do I set my PC as primary device? Thanks Chris

p.s. I know this is a different forum but anybody know if there is any chance Thunderbird will be sync-able any time soon?

Hi Chris

Firefox Sync is designed to "level out" data across devices, there is not "primary" device.

You could remove all Firefox data from the other two devices so that your PC's data is the only set used and that would be synced up the other two.

I under that Thunderbird is going to be getting Sync - this is still being worked on for inclusion in a future update.
