Unable to create sync account

Unread postby virtualgnd » Wed, 11 Jul 2018, 20:02

Figured I wanted to check out the sync functionality in Palemoon, but I have problems creating an account.

When I create an account with an email address and password I afterward get the error message: "Sync encountered an error while syncing: Incorrect account name or password. Sync will automatically retry this action". I have tried to create an account several times, even with different emails, but it is not working.

If I try to use the reset option from Preferences-Sync I am sent to the url: https://pmsync.palemoon.org/sync/index. ... word-reset, which gives me the message: "Function not found".

Any pointers to what I might be doing wrong?
I'm using Palemoon 27.9.3, and the sync.clusterURL is set to https://pmsync.palemoon.org/sync/index.php/

That was my error -- a recent server code update broke creating new accounts.

Please try again now.

Password reset by e-mail is not (yet) implemented.
