Whitelist and other custom settings disappearing

Post by djk » Mon May 11, 2020 11:01 pm

Recently all the whitelisting and custom settings I have made disappear. It seems like it happens when Firefox is upgraded but it may be happening at other times. This has become frustrating since you have to rebuild the custom settings. Is anyone else encountering this behavior or have suggestion where to look for the cause?

As a workaround is there an automated way of making backups of the settings so they could be recovered quickly?

I am using Firefox Sync. NoScript appears to be the only one that is losing custom settings though it is the more obvious one. I have uBlock Origin install and does not appear to be effected though I have not had a chance to do testing to confirm.
