57.0b6 20171005195903

Ubuntu 16.04x64, Windows 10x64, MacOsX10.12

1. Open Firefox 56 with a new profile. (this happens first time startup on new profile only)
2. Open browser console.
3(optional). I've also enabled telemetry trace log and shield log level 0 before first run.

[Actual Result:]

line 9. 1507633826442   Toolkit.Telemetry  ERROR     ClientID::getCachedClientID - invalid client id type in preferences, resetting  Log.jsm:752

After restart, I don't see this error anymore.

Not sure what these errors mean, but I would like to make sure there are not connected or dependent of the bug 1406532, before moving this issue to a better component.

Is this a dupe after bug 1218746 or rather a regression?

Thanks Adrian! This looks like a regression, possibly from 1357517.

Just to make sure the SHIELD experiment isn't interfering, would you mind checking if this is happening on a new profile without any shield experiment (it should!)?

I've created a new profile, setting the prefs.js with user_pref("extensions.shield-recipe-client.enabled",false); on the first run startup comment 0 reproduced, so I guess it's safe to assume that no Shield experiment got in the way.
