As part of Bug #989108 

We need better integration of "Tabs on other device", need cooperation with the sync team

Version: Trunk → unspecified
According to the design in Bug 988323, page 7 to 11, we want to implement a tool for "Synced Tabs" with a subview. This button shows up in the menu panel by default when synced tabs are available and users can move it into the toolbar just like other tools in the menu.

There many bugs on this, which is confusing to me, but I uploaded Ryan's latest PDF to this bug and I'm using it.

Ryan, this is bug I'm using to track "exposing the user's synced tabs in the UI in a more reasonable way". Go at it!

Discussed with shorlander and decided that generic toolbar item that goes to a subview is the best approach for now. User can drag synced tabs icon to the tab strip or toolbar (although depends on work). This would be the nail in the coffin for the old manual sync button. Thoughts?

Looks really good Ryan. We'll hopefully get on it soon.
eoger will start breaking this down.

:rfeeley - we should break out the priority of the UI. There are 10 unique features in the pdf. Let's figure out the priority so we can land this iteratively.
