Synced tabs will not go away despite clearing history and data. How do I get rid of them?

There are tabs showing up on my iPhone that are not associated with any currently open tabs, and I’d like them gone. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, cleared all history and browsing data on the phone, and have gone to each of my synced devices (laptop, iPhone, iPad, and my unsynced but sync-capable Lenovo tablet) to clear all data, and the tabs are still there.

This seems to be occurring since the newest iOS update and newest Firefox version for iPhone. One of these tabs is a “your phone has a virus page”, which I want to get rid of immediately. Please help!
