Syncing Firefox history, bookmarks, etc with Galaxy tablet

I just got a Galaxy Tablet and downloaded Firefox.  I signed into my account and the response was that it had been accepted and it would start syncing momentarily.  That was 20 minutes ago and nothing yet.  Should it take that long?  Since it accepted my email and password I don't see the need to create a new account so what else can I do?  I went to settings and it says Sync: Enabled.  Last synced 17 minutes ago and the Bookmarks, History, etc. boxes are all checked off.
I decided to give it all night to download and when I opened Firefox on my computer this morning, there was a message at the very bottom of the screen saying Firefox encountered a problem while attempting to sync and would try again.  There is obviously a problem somewhere and I really need to be in sync with my computer because I plan on using the tablet a lot while I am out working.
Is there a way to save all of this information on my computer, create a new account and then recall it? Thanks.

Did you make sure that the password you entered is correct?
and of course that syncing is enabled on the computer an configured under the same email?

Yes of course.  That's the first thing I checked.  Is there a way to save all of these settings?

You mean as an export?
There's an official guide about it, but I've never tried it myself, you are welcome to try it though.
Just popped into my head though, Mozilla recently updated the Sync app.
Are both browsers the same version?

I did as you said and converted over to the new Sync method but my tablet continues to say account verified successfully and will begin syncing momentarily and nothing happens.  I'm really frustrated over this because I really need this on my Tablet.
