from Morgan in the a11y review:

(I am not sure about this one, maybe this is how it’s should be) the Firefox View control on the tab bar is announced as button while other tabs are tabs (in their group though).

While expected from a technical perspective this could still be quite confusing for a user. It looks and acts like a pinned tab for sighted users, it should do the same for those relying on screenreaders

To add to what @joshberman wrote above, the button also functions as a tab as when it’s opened no other tabs are opened (unlike, for instance, bookmarks bar that opens in a separate panel)
