I set up Weave on 3 computers, all of which have tab sync disabled. Nonetheless, every time I start Firefox on one of the computers I get the notification icon which, when I click on it, shows a single tab open on another computer.

It's possible that when I first set up Weave on that other computer I had tab sync enabled. Nonetheless, with it disabled here I should never see the offer to open a tab from another computer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Firefox
2.Click on notification icon
Actual Results:  
Offer to open a tab from another computer displays.

Expected Results:  
Since tab sync is disabled, no tabs from other computers should ever appear.

I have seen this both on this PC (Gentoo Linux x86-64 with 32-bit Firefox) and on my work desktop (XP SP2).

This problem continued every day until I checked the box on that tab to display it in my current browser session. It no longer appeared after that.

Tab sync is getting refactored for 0.3, and we no longer display the notification at all.  Closing.
