[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

Android 2.3.5 - HTC Desire HD
Android 4.1.2 - Alcatel One Touch 
Android 4.4.2 Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2
Fennec 46 Beta 1, Aurora 47.0a2, Nightly 48.0a1, Release 45

1. Open Fennec with a clean profile
2. Go to Sync Panel and create a new account
3, In the screen after the creation tap Back or Sign up

Expected Result: 
- you should get a "Confirm mail" for Sign up or to get back to Awesome screen (about:home) for "Back" link

Actual Result:
- you get the "The operation is insecure" error for Sign up button or no action for back. 

Component: FxAccounts → Server: Firefox Accounts
Product: Core → Cloud Services
My guess is that this is strictly an fxa-content-server issue, so I'm going to flag vladikoff and stomlinson to triage it.

Sentry shows quite a few instances of this message:

The most common looks like it's on attempts to check availability of localStorage:

But that doesn't mesh with the STR here.
I was able to repro on my galaxy s5 by:

* disconnecting from my current account
* going to the sync page to connect a new account
* creating a new account
* pressing "back" on the choose-what-to-sync screen, which didn't seem to do anything
* pressing "sign up" on the choose-what-to-sync screen
In my testing, this seems specific to hitting the "back" button on the CWTS page.  By attaching developer tools to the page, I can see that:

* Clicking "Back" causes a message "SecurityError: The operation is insecure." to be logged in the debug console
* Subsequently clicking "Sign Up" causes the error bar to display in the page, and an error traceback to be written to the debug console.
Filed to dig in further on server side.

Ioana, please note that Mozilla's mobile browser does not and has never owned a gmail account.

Unresponsive Back and Save Settings buttons.png

I was able to reproduce this on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Nexus 6 and HTC Desire 820:

And now the Back and Save Settings buttons are unresponsive after you click the Back button. 

Also the Save Settings button is grayed out like in the attachment.
