When there are many saved networks in Settings > System Settings > WLAN view, sometimes the whole list is emptied and the view randomly later refreshes and networkes re-appear. This happens usually when the WiFi network connection closes or there are problems to connect to any network (weak networks, or authentication problems). Because no network information is lost, and the list always re-appears, this is not very severe bug, but needs to be sorted out, cause sometimes the connectivity problems seem to be related to this.

Note bug is still present adter system upgrade to, list of saved networks is absent usually when device is not connected, and after establishing WFi-connection the list after.a delay appears.

I would suggest to follow up https://together.jolla.com/question/1052/bug-wifi-requires-reboot-to-work/ in order not to fork this issue

This is different issue, the disappearing and reappearing saved networks is the problem described here, and it does not require reboot to in order to start (randomly) working. Besides this question was posted before the one in which you made your comment. So i think this question/issue should stay.

This is obviously a bug that needs to get fixed. I don't think it has anything to do with other connectivity problems.

Exactly, thanks for the answer @ilornkcor ;) This behaviour nowadays is very frequent in my phone. It is basically every-time the Wifi-connection network is changed when the saved networks list is absent altogether, or that only the currenty detetcted network is shown. Usually after connectin the list reappears, but not always. Sometiems even reboot does not fix this.

Perhaps related: the list of "paired devices " also disappeared and reappeared once. This happened after loosing a Bluetooth connection and trying to reconnect .
