Details

(Whiteboard: [qa+])

Passwords synced from desktop to Fennec are added to sync database, but do not autocomplete in the UI. (Note: passwords that are added from the Fennec UI and then are updated through syncing update as expected.)

Not sure if a Fennec or Sync bug, will update after further testing.
I am pretty sure end to end sync of username/password combinations such that they autofill on device form field requires form history enabled. 

man, this sounds similar to a bug we had on Fx back when form autocomplete was first implemented.
sync triage is nominating for beta as this makes passwords sync decidedly unuseful

If this a Fennec-side, bug I can re-assign.
Assignee: nobody → liuche
initial testing suggests this may be a sync problem, possibly a cache issue, but further investigation is ongoing
Replaced some Sync code that had been removed as a workaround for Bug 738347, autofill now works as expected.

Pull request in github for review:
https://github.com/mozilla-services/android-sync/pull/165
This should make password autocomplete function correctly.

QA, please test accordingly :)

This issue no longer occurs on today's Nightly. I tried several log in pages and everything has worked as expected.
