Description

2 years ago
From bug 1149721: 
There are now two images inside FF representing almost the same thing.
sync-illustration in about:preferences and graphic_sync_intro.png in about:accounts.

I would propose to select one, and use the same for both purposes for consistency.

Whilst bug 1152385 is about moving away from "about:accounts", I expect the "about:accounts" URL will probably stay, and will need to be more in line with about:preferences#sync. Will Firefox Accounts be more than Firefox Sync, or will it be one and the same? This is all confusing for end-users...

Ryan, how do you feel about this? It makes some sense...

Once the user is signed in to Sync, nothing points to about:accounts. They never seen this image. I am all for removing this image, using the one in Sync, and even removing the headline (Account connected) because it's not always true when that shows.
