BR #50960 and #50939 can be closed

the problems reported in BR #50960 and #50939 were most likely related; but are working now, even with libreJS enabled - this was probably a bug in libreJS, and not icecat

a similar BR is still open regarding this feature on icecat mobile - someone should verify if the sync feature works on the mobile port

There's two errors in IceCat:

  • The inbuild LibreJS add-on is blocking the login page: Menu -> Sign In To Sync... (about:accounts?action=signin&entrypoint=menubar).
  • IceCat 52.0.2 (but not Abrowser 52.0.2) have to be restarted for Edit -> Preferences -> Sync (about:preferences#sync) to show anything after you have logged in, or the page will be blank.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Disable LibreJS, and restart the browser to circumvent another bug.
  • Click on the Menu button
  • Click on Sign in to Sync
  • Visit about:preferences#sync -- it's blank but it shouldn't.
  • Restart your browser again
  • Visit about:preferences#sync again -- Its there now.
