Update the Sync setup flow at this website:
https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/3QBUUTKA#/screens

Screens include:
1. Set up ("Pair this device")
2. Pair this device
3. Sync Now
4. Disconnect this device
5. Add another device ("Pair a device")
Based on the feedback from 02/04 mtg:
Updated flow for sync: http://invis.io/X2BV91JE  

Changed the term from "Pair this device" to "Set up sync";  
Using "Connect" instead of "Pair" for actions in Setup;
Added strings for new users who don't have sync account
Yuan could I get some new mockups for this?

I don't mind taking this after my current iteration story (bug 831614), but I don't think this has to do with auto setup sync from desktop which it is linked to in bug 831614.  Can we move this to another story?

I would move it to bug 831615 but it is a p3.

I think you're right that this work item is blocking the wrong story. I've moved it to Bug 831615 - Story - Set up Sync from Metro Firefox
Blocks: 831615

Hi Brian, please go over the flow of Sync set up and pairing in this link: https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/X2BV91JE#/screens
 
Let me know if you have any question. Thanks!
