=> Launched Firefox after installing 7.0 
=> Signed in to Sync
=> Tapped the History panel, tapped Synced devices (2 devices shown)
=> See a loading throbber that does not go away

Both devices are shown with tabs however
Please investigate some scenarios as to what's happening when pulling down to refresh.

This seems to work fine for me on master.
I am unable to reproduce this issue following the steps from the description. 

I am seeing something similar on an iPad Air 2 / iOS 10.3 on 7.0(2330) and Nightly #2396. The spinner will remain on the screen after following the below STR:

1. Launch Firefox
2. Sign in to Sync
3. Tap History panel
4. Tap Synced devices 
5. Pull down to refresh the list (Do not release the finger while the spinner is displayed)
6. Tap home button 
7. Restore Firefox

Actual results: 
- The spinner will be displayed and will not go away only after performing another refresh on the list or Firefox will Sync.

Tried again today with release and it works for me on my home network.

I noticed this today when waking my iPad after it hadn't synced for a couple of days. The throbber is visible so long as the device is syncing, and while the throbber is visible you can't scroll the list. In my case that was about 45 seconds, which was kinda annoying.

I wouldn't mind reopening this bug and having the throbber only 'link' to a sync if you pulled to refresh. Background syncs are a normal occurrence and shouldn't affect this kind of UI.

Pull to refresh does not initiate a sync.

Synced devices list appears empty after backgrounding/foregrounding the app while sync is in progress.
Synced devices list can't be scrolled while the loading throbber is displayed.
