Dear Forum,

I have not accessed my Devices since a few updates, I use to be able to rename devices, but in 99.01 I no longer see this as an option? I also have found that sometimes when I add a device is adds the Machine name which I prefer and today I logged out all of my devices and found that it added it and named it a generic name "Firefox 99, Windows 10" Which if grave concern as this could be Any Device. Can someone please let me know how this feature in version 99.01 is suppose to name computers and also can you still rename devices and if so how would you change the name, or if there is a link to documentation on this feature as it has changed. TIA for your help.

On a machine running a Firefox instance: In "about:preferences#sync" you should be able to rename the device you are currently working on (for desktop). At least for me this is possible (working in FF Nightly currently, but should also work in Beta and Stable version) under "Device Name" when clicking on the button named "Change Device Name".

On Firefox account: Go to https://accounts.firefox.com/settings?#connected-services. There you should be able to see all connected devices / services and remove the ones you do no longer trust in.

Could you please try this and report back whether it worked?
