Filter list selection doesn't persist in Firefox on Android

Environment ==

Android 4.3.1 stock Samsung Note 2, Firefox 28.0.1, 2.5.1 with easylist.

How to reproduce

  1. I select easylist filter and adblockplus works fine in my Android Firefox browser. If I exit using a quit addon, close using task manager, or restart phone. After reopening the browser there is never a filter list selected. I always have to reselect easylist. Why doesn't it save my selection?

Sounds like filter data isn't being saved, definitely not a common scenario. Not really sure what can be done on Android to find out the cause - even the browser's error console is only accessible via remoting.

Replying to philll:
Sure, I did - but this would have to be done on the reporter's phone. And using this isn't exactly easy.

@drewcam888: Could you please try the latest dev version? I can sort of reproduce something similar with 2.6 but no longer with
