I can't see the SYNC option in Settings so I...

Use about:config to change identity.fxaccounts.enabled = true I can now see 'Sync' in Settings When I go to "Sign into Sync", after I enter my password, it hangs for 10 seconds, then says Working, then always just hangs there forever. If I login to Mozilla using a different tab, it signs in ok.

I have tried this after successfully changing the password, and after restarting firefox.

I am using the latest Firefox version.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

You're using your distro version right? What OS? X11 or Wayland? What Desktop? Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
