User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0

Steps to reproduce:

Setup Sync with all of your devices.

Actual results:

My password and library were synced (including "tabs" in a deep sub-menu).

Expected results:

I would expect my actual tabs to sync (if I open or close a tab on any device, it should do the same on all other devices), since tabs are one of the main features that warrant syncing.

Component: Untriaged → Sync

Thanks for the feedback! I'm adding Alex (Product Manager for FxA and Sync) to ensure it gets some visibility.

Changing synced-tabs to work in the way you describe (as a kind of "make sure all devices are always showing the same set of tabs" feature) would be a substantial undertaking and I don't think we're likely to tackle it anytime soon. But it will be good feedback to take into account for future work in this area.
