I use www.google.com/ig as my home screen and the links from it to gmail, docs etc. If I enable the Sync extension it screws up/corrupts the page so that the links look like they are in Russian. Firefox 3.6 up to Firefox 4.0 beta 12 are effected.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.enable the sync extension
2.sign in to the account
3.restart firefox 
Actual Results:  
Here are links to screenshots I took before and after. before http://bartburroughs.hopto.org/without-sync-enabled.png and after http://bartburroughs.hopto.org/enabled-sync-sucks.png

Expected Results:  
I expect no change in web page display

the Only way to fix it is to delete the .mozilla folder and start over.

I tried reproducing issue and I was not able.

Maybe try and see whether you are importing some settings from the other device(s) with which you are syncing. Try creating a new sync account (with no paired device) and see if the problem is still reproducible. If it's not, add your other device to the sync and check again.
