Addons are not syncing

Hi all

I've got some problem with syncing addons - they are not syncing. Yesterday I've installed Firefox Lockwise on my home PC. Today I start FF on my work PC and Lockwise did not install. Same story was earlier with some other addons. Perphaps there was a solution, but I wasn't able to find it.

Everything on PC is up-to-date (FF 67.0.1).

Best regards

Lockwise might be an exception because it is still in alpha state and is installed from its GitHub web page and not from the Add-ons website as you can see if you hover the install button.

Only extensions hosted on the Add-ons website will be synced.

Lopckwise will be builtin in future Firefox versions (about:logins) and won't have to be installed.

I've given bad example - apologize for this.

Doesn't matter from where I install addon - situation still appears. I've downloaded FeedBro from Firefox Add-ons page (https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/feedbroreader/) and it also doesn't sync.

You can open about:sync-log via the location bar to see if there is a recent log available. You can upload a recent log if the log is too big to put in a reply.

It looks that you have too many extensions and have exceeded your storage quota.

I wasn't aware that there are limits. Is there any site which shows that?

I'm using forever the same package and till this day there were no problems with add-ons.

I think that extensions should be synced. Extension storage data can grow over time (I see Stylus and Tampermonkey as extensions that stores script files), but I can't tell from the report where exactly it goes wrong. Most of the report is taken by Sync.BulkKeyBundle lines
