From: [Bug-gnuzilla] Weave/sync logging errors, but I don't think I have it en - https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnuzilla/2018-04/msg00001.html by Christopher Lemmer Webber:

Something strange has started happening recently in my copy of Icecat.
I noticed when doing an rsync between computers that files like this
have started to appear:

~/.mozilla/icecat/<my-browser-profile>.cwebber/weave/logs/error-sync-1523477157978.txt

I have logs for these as far back as April 3rd. I notice that the
directory appears to have been created on June 9th 2017, which may have
been the last time I created a fresh profile... I'm not sure.

At any rate the logs look like:

1523477157946 Sync.Service INFO Starting sync at 2018-04-11 15:05:57
1523477157946 Sync.Service DEBUG In sync: should login.

1523477157972 browserwindow.syncui DEBUG _loginFailed has sync state=error.login.reason.no_username

This is strange IMO. I never enabled sync, so why is it even trying?
Furthermore, the Sync tab in Icecat's settings page does not even open
for me.

Anyone seen similar things? I'd love to disable this entirely. I
haven't done a tcpdump to check but I hope it's not pinging the server
for this. It's not the most serious thing I suppose since it never gets
past login, but it's still troubling.

I am not subscribed to this list so please Cc me on future replies.

i was able to login to sync after disabling libreJS - per:

https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-librejs/2017-04/msg00002.html

possibly related to:

same issue with 52.1.0 (64-bit) on debian/testing

when trying to log into firefox sync - i can get to the "sync" pane in preferences but when i press the "sign in" button the browser tries to load

about:accounts?action=signin&entrypoint=preferences

and shows a spinner that never completes - after this the sync pane in preferences is no longer accessible - in the console i see the following errors:

console.error:
