As of the latest FF Update to Ver 56; the Original/Legacy Version of LastPass and Xmarks NO LONGER WORK!!! When you try to Synchronize new Bookmarks, the Sync FREEZES and locks up FF!!!

I found through the LastPass Website Forum that Xmarks Users MUST Upgrade to the NEW Beta Xmarks Sync Extension. I have done so, and tested it, and I CAN NOW Synchronize Bookmarks AGAIN!!!!! :-) :-D

Just wanted to let everyone know about this.

Good Luck,

Here's the Xmarks Beta Link for FF.

Xmarks Beta 4.5.0.1a - for FireFox 56, 32 Bit and 64Bit Browsers.

NOTE: MANY years ago Xmarks was originally Foxmarks. LastPass bought out Foxmarks and made it Xmarks. As of FF 53, Xmarks Plugin became "Legacy" to FF. ...AND, again, as of FF 56, Legacy Xmarks NO LONGER FUNCTIONS. I've been a loyal user since Original Foxmarks.

I don't use Xmarks, but I do use

Firefox Developer Edition
Aurora update channel
57.0 beta
September 26, 2017

This might also apply to that version.

Currently running Firefox Aurora/Quantum 58.0b 64 bit with no probs.

I'm on the Aurora update channel which updates it at least twice a day.

I've installed Quantum Firefox in another directory to test it but I am still using the old one on two Linux boxes. I don't know what will happen on my Windows 10 PC since it is Microsoft which decides where to install the applications in its frequent updates.
