Created attachment 8852847 [details] category_tabs_for_google_keeptm-3.1.0-an+fx (1).xpi [Affected versions]: Firefox 55.0a1 (2017-03-29) Firefox 54.0a2 (2017-03-29) Firefox 53.0b7 (20170327081421) [Affected platforms]: Windows 10 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 32-bit [Steps to reproduce]: 1.Launch Firefox with 2 clean profiles. 2.Go to about:preferences#sync and create a new fxa account. 3.Login on both profiles using the new created account. 4.Install the attached webextenion on both profiles. 5.On one of the profiles, navigate to about:addons and set some data for the installed webextension. 6.Force a sync. 7.Go to the second profile, force a sync and check the webextension values. [Expected Results]: The entire webextension data is properly synced between profiles. [Actual Results]: - The data is not entirely/correctly synced. - There were no errors thrown in Browser Console [Additional notes]: This issue might not reproduce at the first attempt, but I noticed that all the values are reset after enabling the colors that was initially disabled. I suspect that those colors which are reset to default are not synced between profiles (see the second sync process from the attached video)

Yeah, I agree with ethan that I think we need a simpler use case than this add-on, because we can't determine if this occurs because of the add-on or something in our code. Presumably this is an extension from the Chrome store?
Created attachment 8860907 [details] sync-error.txt Considering that “Category tabs for google keeptm” add-on is broken I tested a second time using another webextension ( https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/addon/instant-multi-search/ ) and seems that the webextension data is correctly synced between profiles. But a sync error is encountered at the first sync process even the values are properly synced.
I think this is the same as bug 1351678 and will be resolved by it.
