Too much security breaks a system. My sync keeps breaking & I have to keep an eye to keep it always signed in. Every time after entering a password for sync you direct me to my email to click a verification link too. Doing this several times an hour has made a hole in the wall to my neighbors - from me banging my head in frustration.

Surely there ought to be something in security settings to control this. Like many services can't you accept that if I'm on a personal computer I've already had to clear that security and then your security to sync. At that level a verification email should not be needed every time.

It would be different if it was a public computer. But that is such a bedrock distinction theses days it baffles me why you aren't that granular. Heck I'd likely not sign into sync on a public machine or a cafe wifi anyhow.

I've been a Firefox user for many, many years and got a big shock when I pressed the 'Synched tabs' button on the Open Tabs bar - and found this 'NO syncronised tabs... yet' message. So will the old information be carried forward? And... I now have a new laptop!

I'd like to completely replace the data on new Firefox installs with the data on the server, instead of having it merge the defaults back. The old Firefox Sync used to have this option, but I can't figure out how to do it with the Firefox Accounts based system.

I'd like to be able to change preferences on my master install, and then making absolutely sure that gets pulled down on other instances.
