Log in in Desktop Sync (Nightly 46.0a1 and Firefox 43.0.4)
Browse to different web sites
Log in in Firefox OS Firefox Sync using the same account
Tap on Sync now
Open the browser
Check the history shown

The most recent history is the one from the previous day. All the history is under Yesterday label. Today label does not appear and the latest visited web sites in desktop are missing

Once user taps on Sync now, the history should be upated according to desktop

I tried to sync several times during the day, but the web sites visited during the morning do not appear on the mobile device at least so far (more than 5 hours later).
What I visited yesterday, it does appear.

Hey Isabel,
Thanks for investigating this issue.
sounds like that the desktop browser (device A) has some new records, and try to sync-up them to Firefox OS phone (device B)
Could you help to verify the history records in another devices? e.g. use another browser at device C.
I ever see this kind of issue, and I found that the new records did not sync-up correctly from desktop browser.
If you don't mind, I would like to have your account to verify this.

Thank you.

Hi Sean,

I browsed using desktop browser (device A) within the last hour. I used another device, device C, android device with firefox browser. I cannot see the latest history either. There is an option where I can see when the last synchronization was done (10hours ago) but cannot find there an option to Sync now to check if the history is updated (is there that option?).
