Firefox synchronization error – fails to initialize Firefox services


Hi Clay,

The issue that you got is still a hot topic with XMARKS, and they are still working on a permanent fix.

For now there’s some workaround that you can do to get rid of the problem.

  1. Make sure that you are not running any SYNC add-ons (e.g. Firefox Sync, Chrome Sync etc)
  2. Make sure that you have the latest XMARK version installed.

A. Check here to download the latest version.

  1. Run a manual repair for your XMARK.

A. XMARK icon > Settings > Advanced Tab > Repair

B. Then retry to Sync.

If the issue still continues to happen I would suggest that you report this to XMARK support.

Keep us posted!
