Sync of opened tabs does not work

Hello. I tried to carry my opened tabs from old device firefox to the new one's firefox. I logged in on both devices, I indicated to sync tabs and bookmarks, then tapped "sync now". Then I found bookmarks from my old device on new one, but not tabs. What I do wrong? Or may be I understand wrong this function of sync, while I expect just carry my all tabs at once?

Hi, mr. Jefferson. What would be the correct expectation from the sync function?

With open tabs, the URLs should come over, but the tabs don't open automatically. When you are on a new tab, touch History to view that panel, and you should find a category for the other device here. Does that show up on yours? (I don't sync open tabs, so I can't check this myself.)

Hi normann87, please ignore the unofficial support solicitation that someone posted. We have no idea where that leads and don't want you to get scammed.

Yes, it does, the list of mentioned devices has appear under something like "cloud devices" (in another language) caption on my device's firefox. You helped me, thank you.
