(Firefox for Android Graveyard :: Android Sync, defect, P5)

Firefox 57

Build ID: 20171117100127

Steps to reproduce:

When sending tabs to other devices, don't show the list of connected devices if there is only one other connected device. Just send the tab to the only other device.

I only have two devices. I expect many other users are the same.  So, if there is only one other connected device, why not:-

On Fennec:- don't show the toast message with the list of one device, just send the page and show the green tick

On Desktop:- right click the tab, the menu item could be "Send tab to [Android phone name]" click on that and it's sent.

It would be nice. Cheers now!
Seems like a good idea.

This might or might not be a good idea in a general case, I honestly can't decide; Ryan will have thoughts on this. NI-ing again just in case we might want to have different behaviour between desktop and mobile.

Bear in mind that if one of your devices expires, or is missing for an unknown reason, this would appear to be buggy behavior.

IMO this should just be a one-tap flow: pre-select the only destination device.
Let's set P3 for now. 
Please feel free to change it.

Unfortunately most users have very long device names, like "Firefox on Ryan Feeley’s iPad".

I don't think "Send Page to Firefox on Ryan Feeley’s iPad" works as a contextual menu item.

And in future, we may add other options to the submenu.

I suggest this is a won't fix.
