Empty Sync-Tabs.png

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2062.124 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install Samsung Firefox extension
2. Samsung Sync icon will be displayed next to URL bar
3. Click on it, it opens Samsung Account Login Page
4. Provide valid login credentials and wait for login
5. Once successful login is done, it automatically switched to Manage Sync Page where user can see tabs and bookmark sync status
6. After sync completes, open 'about:sync-tabs'  in new tab and you can see the Mobile synced webpages here with device name
7. Now restart the browser and open 'about:sync-tabs' URL
8. Whatever the data shown before restart is all gone, nothing is visible


Actual results:

Browser restart should retain the tabs list like Samsung Bookmarks


Expected results:

Browser restart should not remove tabs from the devices list. It should retain same till Samsung Account login is valid

Component: Untriaged → Sync
After a restart, the Tabs from other devices page won't be populated until a sync has occurred. note also that this page doesn't dynamically update itself. So you must refresh it.  After you restart the browser, force a sync, then reload 'about:sync-tabs'

What are your results, with those steps added?
We have removed "About Sync Tabs".
