Ah, "invalid-generation" indicates that you've recently reset your
Firefox Accounts password, but this instance of firefox is not using the
new password yet.  (Or at least, that's what it's *supposed* to indicate).

Firefox should be prompting you to re-enter your password in response to
this error.  Does this show up anywhere in the sync UI?

Failing that, you can unstick this state by disconnecting and
re-connection from sync, or by wiping the data on your self-hosted
server and starting over afresh.
