I cannot find any mention of how private the information is that sync saves on the Mozilla computers. These data would seem to be gold to a data miner.

You should publish a Privacy statement regarding off-site Sync data and under what conditions it would be released to anyone for any purpose. How soon will it be "shared" with third-party "partners" in order to enhance my "online experience"?

Your current Sync information is totally silent on this question.

However, I'm using Firefox 3.6.10, so I don't know how to resolve this. (Yes I tried downloading and installing the upgrade... this is still the result.) Any ideas?

My sync key used to be 12 characters, no dashes (xxxxxxxxxxxx). After uninstalling and reinstalling FF 3.6.13, Sync 1.6.1 refuses my 12 character sync key. I discovered, that sync keys for all users have been switched to 31 characters including 5 dashes (x-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx). How do I get the new sync key? I have no PCs connected to Firefox Sync anymore but Firefox Home and 360 Browser on my iPhone sync successfully. Unfortunately on the iPhone I cannot display the currently used sync key. Is there a way to convert the old sync key to the new one? I need the bookmarks saved in my Sync account. Thanks for your help!

Well, I got the impression from your original instructions that I would be able to set my own "secret phrase", but the screen pictured in the instructions page never appeared. I got instead another screen with a "Firefox Sync Key" which I was required to print or save.

Is this key the same as the secret phrase you mentioned? If so, can I change it? If not, how do I get to create a secret phrase?

I've installed Firefox sync on a new netbook running Ubuntu and it worked at first, it synced my bookmarks from my PC to the netbook with no problems.

However yesterday it decided to sync the original bookmarks on the netbook with my PC and now I've lost all of my original 100+ bookmarks, they still appear in the URL bar when I type in the keywords for a particular bookmark but not in the bookmarks menu.

How can I stop Firefox sync from repressing my actual bookmarks? How can I return the situation to how it was before using this addon?

I've installed Firefox 4.0 and created a new sync account but while trying to sync my data with Firefox Sync server I always get an error saying that it's impossible to connect to server.

All HTTPS web sites are working well.

I've tryed to use UltraSurf proxy instead of enterprise proxy and sync is working, so I guess that the problem is the enterprise proxy authentication of Firefox sync application. Any suggestion to solve the problem???

Decided to try and use the bookmark option in FF 4 Sync. I had been using the other sync options without issue. My goal was to get my work PC's bookmarks synced with my home PC. I turned bookmark sync on my work PC, when I got home and booted up my computer, before I realized what had happened FF had overwrote my bookmarks on my home PC with my work PC's bookmarks. I have now lost ALL of my bookmarks on my home PC. How do I recover these?

I didn't have time to try and save my bookmarks from my home PC, apparently when you set the one instance of sync to use bookmark they all are set to sync. I figured I would have a chance to save my home PC's bookmarks before i enabled it on that machine to sync the bookmarks.
