Mozilla Sync is a simple ownCloud app integrating the Mozilla Sync API in an ownCloud server. It allows users to synchronize Firefox data (e.g. bookmarks, passwords, history,...) using their ownCloud server. This app is a fork of mjaskurzynski's mozilla_sync app, which was not developed anymore.

Please look at the and inside the docs/ folder for setup instructions, hints and configuration options.

Dude, just read the existing comments. The comment posted immediately before yours answered the question.

Put some effort in, FFS.

 Setup with FF49 shows strange behavior

 by verleihnix on: Nov 8 2016
Score 50%

Setting up a FF49.02 with a freshly installed oc 9.1 failed. Firefox expects an email adress instead of a name and password of 7 digits is too short.

ok, so i set up a new acount at oc with a valid mail adress as username and a 12 digit passwort. again i received 'unbekannter fehler' - unknown error.

a look into oc's logfile showed that FF tries to login with the username of the first account and passwort of the second. of course this does not work. but setting the same password for both accounts leeds to a connection. strange, isn't it?

does anybody have an idea how to get around this? passwords on the production machine should stay unchanged.

best regards

 Firefox 53.0.3 /sync 1.4/OC8 last version to work

 by craigarno on: Jul 2 2017

I still have Sync v1.4 running under OwnCloud 8. Firefox just upgraded from 53.0.3 to 54.0 and v1.1 protocol sync stopped working.

I downloaded and installed Firefox 53.0.3 from , and Sync started working again.

Looks like I'll freeze FF @ 53.0.3 until I can find a server version of Sync protocol version 1.5 with AFX to run on my local server.

I don't like the idea of saving my retirement fund and banking passwords/bookmarks to anyone elses server, no matter how much reassurance I get about how "safe" it is. History shows newer computing platform capabilities can crack older "security methods".

I recently upgraded to Nextcloud 12, and this app still works fine. (Is ownCloud 8 still maintained?)

This app works great with Pale Moon, which stuck with Sync 1.1. Pale Moon can use most of Firefox's extensions, but you may have to use older versions of those extensions. Just sayin', in case old Firefox becomes too insecure.

It's unlikely Sync 1.5 will be turned into an own/nextcloud app, since it requires three separate components - an accounts server, an auth server, then finally the sync server. There are instructions online how to get Sync 1.5 standalone or webserver supported servers running.

But honestly, switch to Pale Moon. It's more stable than Firefox and less prone to functionality changes because of the latest fad or the whims of corporate politics.
