Is it possible to automate the configuration of Firefox Sync on a bunch of machines? I've tried copying profiles.ini and the services.sync.* settings from ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/prefs.js to user.js, but that's not enough - Firefox doesn't recognize this as a working configuration. I don't want to copy all the configuration files over, because that would stamp over various settings which should not be synced, such as passwords and browser history. Also, I'm worried that copying any settings containing GUIDs will break the sync functionality in subtle ways.
