Description

this is a recurring problem - it works with some release then not with the next - it is likely an upstream issue - ive reported the bug myself in the past - it gets fixed then it comes back

the only apparent clues are this line in the shell terminal:

console.warn: LoginRecipes: getRecipes: falling back to a synchronous message for: https://accounts.firefox.com

and this error in the browser JS log

Working…
Response not received for: fxaccounts:can_link_account
