Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new account via about:accounts
2. After creating the account, verify the account via email.
3. The Firefox nightly hamburger settings icon says I'm logged in as ___@gmail.com.
4. From the doorhanger, click on the ___@gmail.com email address to go see Sync options.


Actual results:
Hamburger implies I'm logged in.
Sync Settings says "Please sign in to reconnect ___@gmail.com" and I'm unable to change my sync settings.


Expected results:
I think I should be signed into sync after creating my new account. Not sure why I have to immediately reconnect my ___@gmail.com address.

This may have resolved itself after clicking the "Sync now" link, but now I'm seeing an odd UI issue on the default focused "Manage" link. See attached screenshot.

I think the 'reconnect' issue has been fixed.

moving component
Component: Firefox Sync: UI → Sync
Product: Mozilla Services → Firefox
IIRC this was reported against early test builds, and shouldn't happen anymore.
