Installation

For install, re-/uninstall and upgrade instruction look at Changing your Mozilla Sync installation.

Manual

Information for Mozilla Sync users can be found in the User Manual. Information for ownCloud admins can be found in the Admin Manual.

Helpful hints

Firefox on Android

Older versions of Firefox on Android used only the

RC4-SHA
SSL cipher suite. This has been fixed and "TLSDHERSAWITHAES256CBCSHA" and "TLSDHERSAWITHAES128CBCSHA" have been added to Firefox 29.

Mozilla has a document listing the recommended TLS ciphers.

Firefox Sync on Android does not support SNI. A workaround is to disable it for the domain owncloud is using. Use this in your

nginx.conf
:
listen 443 default_server ssl;

Additionally, if you are using a self-signed SSL certificate you need to import it to Android via: Settings → Security → Install from storage. Note that Android will only import self-signed certificates with the CA bit set. The import was successful when you see your certificate in Settings → Security → Trusted credentials.

LDAP

If you want to use Mozilla Sync with an LDAP backend, make sure that you enable email login. To do this set the LDAP user login filter in your admin panel to e.g.

(|(uid=%uid)(mail=%uid))
.

Furthermore, you need to set the special attribute

Email
in your LDAP configuration. See the ownCloud manual for more information.
