Updates: it seems there are two separate issues there:
1) User Agent Switcher extension cause this bug on all systems
2) Without UAS the bug occurs only on profiles *newly created* under Ubuntu 10.04 (and derivatives, like Mint 9). Migrated profiles are not affected (making more difficult to identify the problem cause).

We should focus on the (2) point here, so I'm changing the summary.

** Summary changed:

-  Firefox Sync 1.4 doesn't connect automatically on Ubuntu 10.04 with fresh Firefox and Firefox Sync profiles, both with Ubuntu custom build and with the official Mozilla one
+ Firefox Sync 1.4 doesn't connect automatically on newly created Ubuntu 10.04 profiles (works with migrated ones) both with Ubuntu custom build and with the official Mozilla one

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox
  
  Firefox Sync 1.4 doesn't connect automatically after starting a browser.
  
- Reproducible: Always - confirmed with both Ubuntu custom build and
- Mozilla one, with fresh Firefox and Firefox Sync profiles (no other
- extensions installed)
+ Reproducible: Always - confirmed with both Ubuntu custom build and Mozilla one, with fresh Firefox and Firefox Sync profiles (no other extensions installed)
+ IMPORTANT: problem occurs only with profiles created under Ubuntu 10.04 (migrated ones work OK). If the problem occurs on a migrated profile, this is ANOTHER BUG, see: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=577608
  
  Steps to Reproduce:
  1. Open Firefox
  2. Go to Tools -> Sync
  3.
  Actual Results:
  The field Connect is active, indicating that Firefox Sync is disconnected.
  
  Expected Results:
  Firefox Sync should connect automatically at browser start.
  
  *Remarks*: I cannot reproduce this bug neither on Windows nor on Arch
  Linux VirtualBox installation. It seems this bug is Ubuntu specific; I
  don't know if Mozilla or Ubuntu is to blame so I decided to report it
  here, too. Please don't mark it as triaged as long as we don't know
  whose error is it; even though I added a Mozilla bug tracker watch.
