midgard Added! Sorry I never noticed it.

Also fixed in epiphany-pantheon-bzr's epiphany-sync!

On firefox-sync:26, "r" is not in getopts's argument, so the -r option cannot be activated.

This package installs a simplified version of the advice on the Wiki. It is suited to a user with a single profile. The systemd service will sync your profile at login and logout.

After installing this package, enable the service:

systemctl --user daemon-reload

systemctl --user enable firefox-sync

systemctl --user start firefox-sync

You can edit the PKGBUILD yourself by adopting the package.

I have some suggestions:

First, I accidentally deleted my other post about the profile never being found on the first run each session. It hadn't happened in so long I thought it might be fixed, but then I realized I still have this syncing at every login:


Also, the syncfox script doesn't allow for any arguments to be passed to firefox (--private-window, uri, etc) which could be fixed by passing any arguments given to it on to firefox with $@. Specifically, change line 21 in the PKGBUILD:

echo "firefox-sync && firefox && firefox-sync"


echo "firefox-sync && firefox \"\${@}\" && firefox-sync"

How do I use this btw? Both firefox-sync and syncfox give the same message;

~/.mozilla/firefox/9zupv2ht.default does not exist

@FadeMind: I would be happy to receive a patch (or new PKGBUILD).

Please using package() function instead of build() function for proper packaging.

updated again - moved test for whether LINK exists later, because want to allow that the link points to the correct but non-existent (e.g. due to restart) volatile location.
