tabs i open on computer 1, do not open on computer 2, even though i sign into my fire fox account, why..?

Posted

i sign into my Firefox account on computer 1, open a few tabs and when done i just close the browser... , i get onto computer 2, i sign into Firefox account and i expect the tabs i opened on computer 1 to be on computer 2, but no, instead they only appear in history and i have to go and manually open all the pages again...
