Firefox Sync 1.4.4:
Users often forget to synchronize when leaving Firefox.

Local workaround: Sync interval is 1 hr by default, it can be changed through about:config to a small value. But this will cause much traffic on servers.

Possibility to get a reminder (popup or anything else) or automatic sync at exit would avoid useless server traffic and helps the user synchronizing.

Reproducible: Always
Fairly certain this is a won't fix.
