User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); nb-NO; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100920 Fedora/3.6.10-1.fc13 Firefox/3.6.10
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); nb-NO; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100920 Fedora/3.6.10-1.fc13 Firefox/3.6.10

After installing the sync extension and setting up an account, my status bar displays "Error While Syncing" instantly after selectiong Tools->Sync->Sync Now.

Clicking the error message pops up a little box that says:

Error While Syncing
Sync encountered an error while syncing:
Unknown error. Sync will automatically retry this
action.
 <Server Status>

Clicking the Server Status button takes me to a page saying "Current Status: All servers up" and makes the error message go away.  However, requesting another sync will make it re-appear.

I have tried to uninstall the plugin and deleating the weave directory in my profile, which didn't help.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tools -> Sync -> Sync Now
Actual Results:  
Failure with error message described above.

Expected Results:  
Some form of successful sync.

Component: General → Firefox Sync: Crypto
For Firefox 3.5/3.6 Sync relies on a binary component for crypto. While we supply x64 Linux binaries, it's possible that they don't work on your platform. The binary component is no longer maintained as it's obsolete on Firefox 4.

Hi Philipp,

I'm not using a x64 browser.  If the extension is attempting to load a x64 binary library that would certainly explains why it is not working, but isn't that a bug on its own?  It /should/ have used a 32-bit library instead, right?
