I like being able to filter synced tabs that way, is there a reason we can't sync that pref?
Just to comment in case we don't get to this during triage later, and because I only just noticed this bug: I think if you are modifying it, it's not too much to ask that you manually make it synced it by setting "".

IMO most users shouldn't touch it nor should we encourage them to.
Good point, if a user a proficient enough to modify that pref they can probably create another one.
I don't mind resolving this as WONTFIX.
From triage: This pref is also used to prevent you from sending filtered tabs (for example, blob: URLs are meaningless on other devices). We don't want to encourage users changing this pref, since we've changed the RegExp several times. Thom suggests adding a separate pref for filtering URLs, instead of storing the RegExp source directly.
