STR: 1. Create a fresh profile and add some bookmarks to it 2. Sign in to Fx account 3. Notification pops up "Sync will start momentarily" Expected: Sync should start after 10 seconds of FxA sign-in Actual: Sync doesn't start automatically Note: When I close and reopen the browser sync starts momentarily. I have observed this issue several times.
Can you get us logs from when this happens? (my comment in bug 1332751 should explain how to turn those on)
I could reproduce this again. Logs is not getting created until sync start, after restarting the browser sync starts automatically. Attaches is zip file of successful sync.
Thanks! The logs show that's true :( But they also appear to show the "about sync" addon running at the same time. There's a chance that the addon is actually to blame here - I'm out of time today - would it be possible for you to disable that addon, restart, then see if you can repro?
Hello Mark, you are right. This issue is only reproducible with "About Sync" addon. I tested this multiple times with different profiles and Fx accounts and I didn't encounter this bug with disabled addon or w/o addon. Changing the component to Firefox:Extension compatibility as this bug happens due to addon.
Component: Sync → Extension Compatibility
Thanks! I think this will end up being closed as it's a bug in the addon rather than in Firefox, but in the meantime I've made the summary more accurate.
Summary: Sync doesn't start automatically → about-sync addon stops a first sync from starting automatically
Mass-closing old Extension Compatibility bugs that relate to legacy add-ons or NPAPI plug-ins. If you think this bug is still valid, please reopen or comment. Sorry for the bug spam, and happy Friday!
