Steps to reproduce:

Trying to delete account and resync - can't do it.


Actual results:

sync has not been working for many weeks.


Expected results:

it should have sync'd my bookmarks.
If you actually deleted your sync account, it won't work any longer.

If you mean you removed a client from the account, then you have to add the client back to the sync account.
What I am meaning to say is - sync hasn't been working for a very long time for me. When I tried to get it working again, I changed passwords - I tried deleting the information on the website side - I tried to deleteing the account just to created another. Nothing that I have tried has worked. Is there some way I can just get it off my browser and not use it at all?

I have had to reset my Sync ID and PW every other day for well over 3 weeks.  Firefox Version 8, Windows 7, New Dell 1600 Laptop (4mo)& New Dell XPS 8300 Desktop 1mo.  Problem occurs on both systems.  Never had problem until I switched to Windows 7.

Matthew: please file a new bug, rather than diving in on an unrelated older bug. Thanks.
