Abrowser Doesn't Sync. Broken? How do I fix it?

Hello, I just got my Trisquel laptop from Los Alamos Computers (laclinux.com). I am trying to get Abrowser to "Sync" my bookmarks, etc, but I find it is just hanging indefinitely after I enter my login details. Any idea what is going on?

I am trying to avoid installing IceCat since I feel its not necessary to install another browser when Abrowser should be working.

Another note - I am an advanced beginner in Linux, so I would appreciate more descriptive help with this. Many thanks.

PS - I have attached a screen shot of where I am stuck at.

Dunno how to fix it in Abrowser but the easiest thing is to remove it and use IceCat.

... @Dolus Astus, are you saying that you also have the issue I described with Abrowser? I wonder if it's just me somehow...

Firefox sync doesn't work in ABrowser, but you can manually export your bookmarks as HTML and then import them to ABrowser is you need them. It seems like a pain, but really takes about the same time as syncing them anyway.

It would be nice if the feature worked on a later build though.
