Steps to reproduce

You have to install this as an appx for the bug to appear. Everything works fine when you use the “Load extension” button.

The specific error message is:

Error: Could not complete the operation due to error 8e5e05e2.

I’ve attached extension files that can reproduce the issue. Just run:

browser.storage.sync.set({"test": "test"}, () => {
    console.log(browser.runtime.lastError);
});

    • Is there anything I can do to get around this for the time being or can I only wait for an update with a fix?

    • You can try using shorter name for your extension as a workaround.

    • Are you referring to the AppXManifest ``, the AppXManifest , or the manifest.json "name":?

    • Oops, formatting didn’t come out right.

      Are you referring to the AppXManifest Identity
      Name="", the AppXManifest Properties/DisplayName, or the manifest.json "name":?

    • AppXManifest Identity
      Name="" should be changed

    • Last question: What build is this going to be fixed in?
