User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv: Gecko/20101012 Firefox/3.6.11
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv: Gecko/20101012 Firefox/3.6.11 , Firefox Sync 1.5

When firefox is running, the synchronization icon shows that Sync is being synchronizing. This icon do not stop turning. 
I do not have any message about any time out. 
Sync is installed on two computers. One on a Windows XP service pack 3. One on Apple with Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
I noticed also that on the second computer under MacOS, the newest bookmark is not present. This latest bookmark is in a subfolder.
I did not change my password. So there is no reason explaining why there is an issue during the synchronization.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start firefox on computer 1
2. Sync does not stop synchronizing
3. Add a bookmark
4. Stop firefox.
5. Start firefox on computer 2
6. Sync does not stop synchronizing
7. Look for the latest bookmark.

Actual Results:  
Sync does not stop synchronizing.
The latest bookmark is not present.

Expected Results:  
The latest bookmark is not present.
Is it possible that a firewall blocks Firefox Sync ?
