Please disregard "Please note that the notification is received if sent TO a desktop firefox build."- the notification is received on desktop only after a sync or a background sync is performed. 

Also, across mobile devices the notification is received if "sync-minimize the app" action is performed or again, an automatic background sync is performed by Firefox

I don't think 4299 had this functionality implemented.

This was part of "Bug 1373276 - Call POST /account/devices/notify in the send tab extension" which only landed yesterday. It should be part of the next TestFlight Build, which will go out today or tomorrow morning.

Making this a P1 for 8.0. This can be tested again when the next TestFlight beta goes out. (Hopefully Wednesday evening, July 5th)
