I think there is the same issue with passwords (not tested) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. set up Firefox Sync on two different PCs, and keep FF open in both of them 2. make a change on bookmarks in one PC 3. check the another PC to see if the change has been reflected on it Actual Results: It does not work, period. Expected Results: changes should show up istantly in the another machine (push data on change event in bookmarks, passwords and tabs)

Would you please attach a sync log from the problematic system. 1. Go to about:config in your browser. 2. Set services.sync.log.appender.debugLog.enabled to true 3. Restart your browser 4. Try logging into your Sync account again 5. If you get a failure, go to about:sync-log, save it to a file and attach it to this bug. Thanks!
No error detected. Synchronization still not working. FF UI freezes during Sync merge.
Does about:sync-log show anything nonetheless (after you've done Kevin's steps 1 through 4)? If so, please attach it to this bug. Thanks!
Have you tried choosing "Sync Now" from the menu? Does that make a difference? 30 minutes is not long enough for a two-desktop sync to occur by default.
If I do "sync now" all things get synchronized. But automatic syncing does not work. How much time it needs for a complete syncing?

If you have no mobile devices in your set of devices, a timed sync runs every hour. If you have mobile devices, it runs every five minutes. If you have two PCs, and you only waited 30 minutes, then it's unlikely that you waited long enough for a timed sync. Sync does not currently use a push notifications model; see Bug 600429.

There were no other processes with "lot of buffered I/O", nor strange addons eating up cpu cycles and slowing things down. I have no doubt that your work is not simple as I can imagine (you are right, I did not have a look on Sync implementation, nor Weave code, so I have no idea on how it works), but I am a Google Browser Sync user first, and Xmarxs later, since 2006, and I can assure that they worked way smooth than Sync. Xmarks managed to work well even after the changes made in FF 3. I am sure that with time you will manage to overcome current shortcomings of Sync.
