I think this has reared its head before. rnewman, liuche: there was some activity/preferences/tap handler interaction in the past.  Can you recall anything more?

I already have an account set up on the only device nearby, so I can't follow the STR, but I can't reproduce by Settings > Sync > Terms of Service > Settings > Sync, which *should* be equivalent.

What happens when you tap Sync?

I just tried this on a developer build and Nightly, and it looks like the very first time I try to access the Sync Settings from Settings, I need to tap "Sync" twice.

The logs say that we try to launch FxAccountGetStarted (nothing displays, because we have a sync account), but then I never see the "START FxAccountStatusActivity" message that should pop up.

09-19 16:41:29.516: I/ActivityManager(377): START u0 {flg=0x10000000 cmp=org.mozilla.fennec_liuche/org.mozilla.gecko.fxa.activities.FxAccountGetStartedActivity} from pid 23533
09-19 16:41:29.516: W/ActivityManager(377): Activity is launching as a new task, so cancelling activity result.

On subsequent taps of "Sync," I do see a log statement that FxAccountStatusActivity is starting up. It seems like FxAccountGetStarted isn't redirecting the new intent to launch Sync settings correctly? I also tried swipe-closing the final setup screen to see if having that open was somehow related or interfering with handling the new intent, but this just caused Fennec to restart when I switched to it.

Oh, and with respect to your question about tap handling, I don't recall anything related to handling Preference clicks - there were problems opening Settings before, but that was on 2.3 (bug 1058027) or tablets (bug 966784) and specifically related to getting the Settings activity to even open.
