After the "Send Tab to Device" page icon got removed in bug 1697191, there is no corresponding toolbar icon which could be used alternatively.

Type: task → defect

I think you can right click on the tab and there is an option there?

You are right, there are other means to send tabs from desktop. One being right-click in the page, the other on the tab.
I just prefer the icon as it means one less click (I am using the option a lot) and was hoping to keep it as toolbar icon.

This, "Send tab to Device", would also be smart to add to the File menu, similar to bug 1512851.

My setup is a laptop without a mouse. Tap is left click, two-finger tap is right click, after some delay. It's way easier to do two taps in close proximity, rather than finding a clickable surface inside the page, rightclicking and then moving the cursor some distance. It requires some skill and concentration, which shouldn't be the case.

As per comment #3 and also to add another option for comment #4 I filed bug 1709609.

The bot is setting the bug type as "defect" because there is the "regression" keyword and a bug in the Regressed By field. The rule is that regressions are defects.
This doesn't seem like a regression though, so perhaps you should remove the "regression" keyword and the bug from "Regressed By" and then set the type as "enhancement"?

I figured after the bot changed my setting the second time. Done the changes. I would still argue that it is a regression from bug 1697191, having an icon before and no icon after. Hope this ticket will make it out of P5 sooner rather than later :)

best way to create a shortcut key for either "send to [specific] device" or "send to all devices?"
