[meta] Firefox Sync client for Firefox OS
Firefox Sync between my computers and Android devices is a killer feature of Firefox, and is what got me to use Firefox on my Android phone. It would be very nice to have support for at least bookmark and password sync to Firefox OS devices as well; this would enable sharing data both with a laptop or desktop computer and would make upgrading to a new phone much less painful.
This was the first thing I looked for upon getting a Firefox phone... I want this! Then again looking at the browser's settings, I can understand why this hasn't been done yet. There isn't even a way to change your default search provider yet.
This is likely to be a meta bug but adding to the backlog for prioritisation. Product: has this feature/group of features been slated for a particular release yet?
Whiteboard: c=browser u=user
Before we have Firefox Sync at all, could we have at least normal login/password saving to the local storage? Without Browser feels really really lame (especially with non-memorable passwords which should be now standard).

A Pivotal Tracker story has been created for this Bug: http://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/53548869
PiCL didn't go anywhere. Sync is the best thing we have, unless you want to build a replacement!

I know this is not a forum, but ... just got a new phone with Firefox OS and found out now, that in order to be able to use Sync I should have gotten an Android device instead. That seems rather odd IMHO.
For tracking purposes - TWO (2) users are requesting this feature in the SUMO forums: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1021382
Hi Peter, is this feature still on a roadmap for Firefox OS? Ilana, can you check if we have additional Sync-related mentions or requests on Input? Thanks in advance, - Ralph
There is a plan to address this as part of new architecture changes that are coming.
My recommendations from earlier in this bug largely still stand: trying to use the existing desktop Sync code base will result in a Bad Time®.
In Bug 1148933 I'm removing storageclient.js from the tree. This was a modern implementation of the Sync 1.1 protocol; it was never used, and in the interest of not running tests or taking up KB in omni.ja for code we don't use, it's being removed. Should this bug ever turn into a fresh implementation of Firefox Sync, I recommend heading over to that bug and grabbing the code, rather than starting over.
Piping up from user advocacy: never seen a user request this in feedback. Doesn't mean it wouldn't be valuable, of course.

Hello, there! I'm lost on this. Is there an alpha or beta client for the Flame (nightly-latest) I can use to test and share feedback, or is there anything else a newbie can help with? :)
