I'm trying out the Firefox Developer Edition 46.0a2. And I couldn't find the "Sync Now" button in the Customize option... I know I can still "sync now" using the button on the right of my email in the menu, or Tools>Sync Now, but still, i would prefer place the button on the Toolbar. I even tryed to install Classic Theme Restorer and tick 'Extra buttons in "customizing" mode' and it added some, such as Separator or History Sidebar, but the Sync Now is still missing.

Chosen solution

The "Sync Now" toolbar button has been replaced by the "Synced Tabs" button (id unchanged: #sync-button, but button got a new icon).

When you are connected to Sync then you can find a Sync button next to the Sync account name at the bottom of the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down list. This button is the same as the one that you see in customize mode (two arrows in a circle). This button has a tooltip that shows the time of the last sync.

But I would like to have the button back because it's simplier. And I'm wondering if its missing is intended or a bug (specially when even CTR doesn't restore it), as you can see in the screenshot I found of the older builts, the "Sync Now" button is present, but I haven't found any release notes about its removal (which would have no sense, and would create some discussion), so apparently it was removed by accident in one of the recent builds, or its just a bug affecting my machine?
