Run your own Private #Firefox #Sync Server

and in the end you need to #trust the browser anyway, don't you? i mean, how can you make sure they are not collecting all the data in the background, whether or not you enabled sync..?
that's why i'm not using #chrome - they are for sure collecting everything there is to collect...
for #firefox i'm at least not sure ;-)
i'd still recommend to #questionthat individually.
@jlelse there is an image @ #dockerhub called #mozilla/syncserver, but that is inofficial. not sure who built it and what's in it...
basically, everyone could create an account with the name "mozilla" :)
What's in it now? As it's not an automated build (and the Dockerfile is unknown), you have to vet this using the tools out there.
What's in it next week? You don't have to worry about this when using an image version SHA. Never use latest!
But yes, it mostly sucks. Better roll your own image.
i for sure wouldn't trust the image of crazymax, unless he's a good friend. i've seen many popular accs being sold or #hijacked..
if #mozilla would be an official acc at #dockerhub, i'd probably also have sufficient #trust in that image.
but... most trustworthy is the sources and a #dockerfile from mozilla's repo. so i need to (automatically) build the image myself
@martin I really like the "Send tab to device" feature, which I suspect is powered through the sync. Can you try and see if it still works?
