It would be great if you could self host your own sync server for Firefox, so you don't need a Firefox Account.

It could either work by only allowing users to sync when connected to the LAN the self-hosted sync server is running on, or accessible anywhere by setting up port-forwarding.

This would give the following advantages over the current system:

  • Better security and privacy as our data isn't leaving any of our device.
  • Allows syncing while the internet is down but LAN is still working

This wouldn't be a replacement for the current system but should be provided as and additional option.

It could also be an idea to create an "app" for Netgear's ReadyNas, allowing you to host Firefox Sync off a Nasbox

I seem to remember that this used to be possible when syncing was introduced. But is it possible that support for self hosting was removed?
