Autocomplete stops to work if I login and synch

Posted

In the last days I have noticed Firefox autcomplete has stopped to work. I have tried to fix teh issue refreshing Firefox and creating a new profile, and teh issue is actually fixed. But when I do the login and I start to synch my account to get my things back, autocomplete stops to work again. I restartewd FF in Safe Mode, I have disabled all my addons and re-enabled them one by one but this never made autcomplete to work again... Any idea?

Chosen solution

There might be some prefs stored on the Sync server as part of syncing preferences. If you connect to Sync then these synced prefs are automatically applied. You can try to check the password of the Sync Account to reset all data on the Sync server.

Best is first to disconnect Sync and change the password via the settings page.

Then make the changes to the settings and then reconnect Sync.
