irrelevant, happens on 7.x up to head
A reinstallation of firefox (for example, using portupgrade) removes the installation of firefox-sync. This happens with every version of the two I have tried so far (firefox, firefox35, etc.).
As another matter, firefox-sync should be split into separate ports in order to support different versions of the browser. The current way of using an OPTION is ugly.
Reinstall firefox and observe that firefox-sync is gone.
