User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:23.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/23.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130803192641

Steps to reproduce:

I use Firefox on different 2 PCs (Windows and Linux) and use Sync to synchronize everything.  This works as expected.

However, when I use Sync on Firefox for Android then passwords do not get synced. Everything else syncs fine (bookmarks, history, tabs).

I tried:

- with several websites and "Request Desktop Site" to avoid the issue described in bug #783336
- I forced synchronization with 'sync now'
- I tried the latest stable (23) and beta (24) versions of Firefox for Android on a Nexus 4 with Android 4.3

I don't know how to start debugging this as there seems to be no way to see the stored passwords in the GUI.


Actual results:

Passwords are not synced, whereas other data like bookmarks, tabs and history is.


Expected results:

Passwords should sync.

Do you have a master password set in Firefox for Android?
Also, could you see what your Desktop Firefox says should be synced in the Preferences pane?  We've seen bugs that toggle a check-box there, so we should make sure this isn't the issue.  (But Master Password is far more likely.)
