Running nightly Firefox on Samsung Galaxy Tablet

Note: This is more of a UI critique then an observed bug. Please let me know if this should be discussed in another place.


After clicking and holding on the URL bar a drop down select mention is displayed with options for "All Pages", "Bookmarks", "History", and "Desktop". Clicking on "Desktop" immediately displays the j-pake code setup for sync.  This is a confusing user experience.  The first time I saw the icon for Desktop in this list I thought that I would be seeing a list of bookmarks that were located on my Galaxy tablet desktop.  

I'd recommend rethinking the title and icon to better convey this to users.  In addition, the "Connect to Sync" window should have a link for "What is Sync?". I imagine many people will be surprised to see this code without any explanation for what this feature even is.
