Just noticed that I'd enabled "do not track" in my Firefox profile on one machine, but that change didn't propagate to the rest of my Sync'ed machines. This seems like the type of pref that makes a lot of sense to synchronize via sync, since a user who proactively takes the step to request not being tracked will presumably not want to be tracked on *any* of their machines. (Sid: I assume you agree, but correct me if I'm off base here.) Can we add this to the list of sync'd prefs? AIUI, the pref to sync here would be: privacy.donottrackheader.enabled so I think this just involves creating a bool pref named services.sync.prefs.sync.privacy.donottrackheader.enabled (right?)

Correct. The services.sync.prefs.sync.* pref would also have to be set to true. It should live in browser/app/profile/firefox.js.
Created attachment 509498 [details] [diff] [review] fix fix as described. I expect it should work -- haven't tested yet, but I'm about to.
Comment on attachment 509498 [details] [diff] [review] fix Confirmed that this works in a build w/ this patch. (successfully synchronized the enabled donottrack pref from profile A to profile B; then I disabled the pref in profile B and resync'd, and confirmed that the pref became disabled in profile A on its next sync.) Requesting approval to land.
