(Whiteboard: [storage]triaged)

Bug 1253740 added an implementation of chrome.storage.sync, but this implementation doesn't actually sync on Android due to the difference of what parts of Sync that ship on Android. This means that although chrome.storage.sync works on Android, it doesn't sync.

Apologies for commenting here without a patch in hand. I'm just wondering if there's any chance of this making 57 or will users have to give up add-on synchronisation for a cycle?
This will not be happening in time for Firefox 57.
