Description

From a user report trying to set up Sync on Windows 8. Everything works fine for one user account; total failure for another.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/941471

NS_ERROR_XPC_JAVASCRIPT_ERROR_WITH_DETAILS: '[JavaScript Error: "this._storage is null" {file: "resource:///components/nsLoginManager.js" line: 470}]' when calling method: [nsILoginManager::findLogins] Source File: resource://services-sync/identity.js Line: 419 

Gavin suggested that this is probably a sqlite issue.

Note:

"FYI: I have sysprepped and relocated my Users directory onto a different partition. I've tried unistalling/reinstalling Firefox."


(Old bug with similar description: Bug 479941.)
I think there needs to have been an earlier failure to have caused this._storage to be null, but it's possible that got pushed out of the 250-item console buffer by other stuff. Any other exceptions immediately after restarting?
See also https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox:Password_Manager_Debugging, info from that would be helpful.
(But for the moment my magic 8ball suggests file/directory permissions.)
