Firefox Sync Server for YunoHost

Integration level Working status Maintenance status Install Firefox Sync Server with YunoHost

Lire ce readme en français.

This package allows you to install Firefox Sync Server quickly and simply on a YunoHost server. If you don't have YunoHost, please consult the guide to learn how to install it.


The Sync Server provides a replacement for Firefox’s default server (hosted at Mozilla).

By default, a server set up will defer authentication to the Mozilla-hosted accounts server at So you will still have to authenticate at Mozilla, but the storage of your information will be done on your host.

Shipped version: 1.9.1~ynh4

Disclaimers / important information


Once installed, reaching http://domain.tld/path should show a page explaining how to configure it.

Solving problems with Android

The sure-fire way to know what Sync on Android is really doing is to observe the Android device log using adb logcat. You’ll want to bump your log-level:

adb shell setprop log.tag.FxAccounts VERBOSE

Then, you can observe the log using:

adb logcat | grep FxAccounts

It’s best to observe the log while you force a sync from the Android Settings App. You should see output like:

D FxAccounts(...) fennec :: BaseResource :: HTTP GET
D FxAccounts(...) fennec :: BaseResource :: HTTP GET
