A lot of users use multiple browsers, and sometimes it's hard to keep track of the sites you visit in each one. It would be awesome if Firefox had a "global" history that kept track of the sites you visit, regardless of the browser or device.

This brings puts the user in the centre of their fragmented online profiles and unifies this information within the Firefox browser and users' Firefox Account.

Also, all bookmarks.

Very cool idea for Firefox to become the one best place to start searching when you're looking for anything you've seen before.

One filter to run this through is the use case of using different browsers for different "identities" and whether it becomes confusing to see them mixed -- may be solvable through some additional cues of what came from where.
