If you are experiencing problems acessing or navigating the Fairing Data Sync, try the below to try to resolve the issue. If none of the below work, do not hesitate to reach out to [email protected].

Refresh the browser window

Often when the 'Sync' button does not appear, the browser simply needs to be refreshed or restarted.

Clear your browser's cache and cookies

If you are experiencing any errors from Google or the extension is not responding to your clicks (ex. nothing happens when you click 'Add new data report'), clearing your browser's cache and cookies can help remove any old permissions that may be causing errors.

Uninstall and reinstall the extension

If neither of the above work for the issue you are experiencing, you can try uninstalling and re-installing the Fairing Data Sync. This helps the extension reset permissions. You can uninstall by going to Extensions >> Add-ons >> Manage add-ons and search for 'Fairing Data Sync.'
