- by evo343, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great when it works as intended, but settings keep getting randomly reset to defaults.
Followup: yes, I have disabled Sync options. But same behavior. Here are the settings that get over-written every 1-2 weeks: https://i.gyazo.com/53ff502db09534eb96a5bb2b767ef0e5.png
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThere was a bug with sync storage; it's now fixed as of version 1.5.2.
That said, the issue you're describing is something else. My current theory is you, or some privacy add-on, clears Firefox's "Site Data". As a side effect, it wipes localStorage, in a way that generates no notice to the extension.
I can fix this, by moving primary storage to another API, but that requires more re-engineering than I can afford right now. I'll put that on the wishlist of features.
