Xmarks Stopped Working in Firefox 56

Xmarks Stopped Working in Firefox 56

Explorer | Level 3

HI,

 

Firefox just updated itself to version 56.0, and where my Xmarks add-on was working prior, now it does not. The icon is grayed-out and when I select "Synchronize Now", the little sync window pops up, but nothing happens and it locks up my browser to the point that I have to restart it. I am aware that there is supposed to be some new add-on functionality in Firefox v57+, but that would not appear to be the problem in this case.

Does anyone have any insight into what the issue could be? Even better, anyone know a fix?

 

Please help.

 

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

 

Thanks

Re: Xmarks Stopped Working in Firefox 56

Super User II

As @Jane alluded to, this won't be a Dropbox issue as Xmarks doesn't use Dropbox to sync.

For the moment, Xmarks works just fine with Firefox 56. I've been using it for months without issues. If you're having a problem synchronizing, you'll need to reach out to Xmarks/LastPass for assistance.

 

That being said, you might want to prepare for it to stop working soon. The service is being shutdown on May 1st.
