Did you create a new account or signed in? I signed in without any trouble.
As a last resort, try to delete data, then sign in the clear IceCat.
Also check that the password is right on any other (desktop) Firefox.
No way! Remember that switching Sync server shall damage all the existing users. Also according to the discussion you sent, the Pale Moon Sync owner is strongly negative about things like this.
If you experience Sync problems, ask upstream (Ice Cat developers) for help.
I’ll test newer version soon and drop results here.
ok, got some time to test it.
The problem appears when signing in with account user has already.
The Error seen in the log is:
> W/FxAccounts(13970): java.net.SocketTimeoutException: failed to connect to api.accounts.firefox.com/184.108.40.206 (port 443) after 30000ms
I’m not sure why it happens but maybe because the server (namely api.accounts.firefox.com) responds as CN=accounts.firefox.com through SSL. The names do not correspond hence IceCat unable to connect.
@krt, could you please fix it? I mean maybe simply replacing /api.accounts.firefox.com/accounts.firefox.com/ might do the trick?
