    Exclamation Firefox wants me to open an account!

    What's up with the notice at the foot of the Firefox browser that tells me they "rebuilt Sync" and I should upgrade to a Firefox account?
    What does this mean, and should we do this?

    Why would you want yet another account - I'd be in trouble without a password manager for all of mine?
    Backup your PC, including making a system image and you can't go wrong.

    cheers, Paul

    FWIW,

    I use XMarks to sync bookmarks between all browsers/devices.

    I'd recommend MozBackup for backing up everything else in FF. MozBackup has saved my bacon more than once after a FF update. Just reload the last MozBackup and all my settings are back.
