I had a hard time setting up the new sync server for Firefox which is written in Rust because the documentation is very bad.

After a lot of try and error and reading comments of people in the issue tracker I finally was able to set it up and run it successfully.

Mostly for my future self, but perhaps it also helps other people I documented it with help of a README and a docker-compose.yaml which makes it easy for me to upgrade if necessary and also to store all the other config files with examples.

    Nothing, that is not the point.

    The point is that I don’t want Mozilla to store my personal information on their servers, especially not all my passwords and surfing history.

      Save in terms on load I mean CPU usage. The question is how much money they will save by we utilize this instead. I does think it is as heavy like ChatGPT or anything like that.

      Personally i dont save password in the browser. I use keepassxc and the web extension to the browser. But Firefox sync for all Firefox settings, sending tabs etc.
