For the past couple of days, I’ve had some issues getting Xmarks to sync in Firefox. If your Xmarks won’t sync in Firefox, here’s a solution that might work.

Let me tell you a little bit about my issue, and see if it fits yours as well.

I have Xmarks on three browsers, Firefox, Chrome, and Torch. Chrome and Torch have been working just fine; however, in Firefox, Xmarks won’t sync. I could log into my account, but syncing would never complete.

I first had this issue a few days ago. The first day I really didn’t trip, I assumed I needed to run some updates, even thou I’ve never had that issue before when I needed a few updates. Nevertheless, I didn’t worry about it.

Today I begin looking for a solution. Here’s what I came up with

  1. Uninstall the Xmarks extension from Firefox
  2. Restart Firefox
  3. Download Xmarks directly from Xmark’s website
  4. Restart Firefox again
  5. Login and sync Xmarks

If this doesn’t work and you find a solution, leave us a post with your solution

‘Til the next episode, peace!

Thanks a TON! Dead simple, and worked like a charm. (I was kinda freaking out there for a while.)

thanks! I had tried removing and then adding again from the extensions menu but installing from the xmarks website fixed it!

Didn’t help, but after all manipulations I pressed “Run setup wizard” and had success. Thanks!

Thank you. This issue has been driving me nuts for days. Downloading directly from the Xmarks site solved it.

Thank you so much!! This started 2 days ago when I finally ‘organized’ my Firefox bookmarks manually, one at a time, creating a handful of new folders. I synced that with the Firefox server and all seemed well. Then I went to my next computer and it ‘downloaded’ the ‘new’ files from the server. Again all was well. The next computer is Macbook Pro running bootcamp with OSX 10.6,8 and Win 7. BOTH sides would NOT sync no matter what I did.
UNTIL I followed your instructions. Voila!! All is well on both OSX and the Win 7. 🙂

Thanks for the sync help. I was on the way to following your suggestion when I thought to check the profile settings. The computer that was failing to sync had the wrong profile selected. changed and problem fixed without having to reinstall sync.
