I got a new tablet only to have to send it back, disconnected. Six days later, it's still listed in my history. How long until it disappears/somehow removed?
I bought a tablet just for it to be not what I wanted. I see it listed in my old tablet's sync history 5+ days after and am baffled. I changed my password so it doesn't have access in the future but it's in my Firefox History even when I select it to hide it. It's not in my account anymore but it's in my history. Am I freaking out too much or is this normal since it could vanish on its own?

Firefox gives you the ability to manage this yourself. If you go to:
...under "Devices & Apps" you will be able to manage the connection that you have made with your Firefox Account and remove them as required.
I hope that this helps.
That's not what I meant. I already did that and it's not there. I'm talking about going to open a new tab and going to the history section where your synced devices are listed.
My desktop and my current tablet are there but so is the unwanted one.
Does it disappear after a certain number of days or do I need to do anything in particular to remove it? Preferably without deleting my account to rebuild from scratch.
That entry is probably just cached in your browser. Not sure why you would need to rebuild your account from scratch.
Maybe just wait a few days longer to see whether they disappear. Synced tabs should expire in about a week (seven days), so maybe they are now gone already since you mentioned six days.
