User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140605174243 Steps to reproduce: New sync version does not seem to correctly handle precedence for customised settings. Example: 1. Delete %appdata%/mozilla on both machines. 2. Open ff on laptop, set up new sync account 3. In about:config set browser.newtab.url="about:blank" 4. Set services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtab.url=true 5. Sync now to be sure settings uploaded 6. Open ff on desktop 7. Log in to sync account. Back with the old sync I was always able to do a full overwrite and this never happened, but now some strange mangling together of the settings is occurring. Can the old feature be re-added to allow complete overwrite of local data with server settings? Otherwise adding a new browser to an existing set of set up browsers will play havoc with customisations. Actual results: settings on desktop become: services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtab.url=true browser.newtab.url="about:newtab" settings on laptop reset to: browser.newtab.url="about:newtab" Expected results: settings on desktop become: services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtab.url=true browser.newtab.url="about:blank" settings on laptop unchanged
