Hello.

I use firefox on all my devices: home pc, work pc and smartphone. And when first time i found "Send tab" function it was aweosome. It worked with a little delay, but always worked. I'm not sure since which update it stopped working between pc browsers. When i sending tab to smartphone, it still works, but when i'm sending from desktoop browser to another desktop browser, it says "Sent" but other browser never recieves it. At some point i've found article where it was mentioned that it might not work because of proxies set in both of my desktop browsers (i can't find it now to post the link). If proxies is to blame, is there a way to fix this? Maybe exclude specific address in proxy settings? If not, what migth be the reason?

Any advice is appreciated.

Same here. I've just been setting up Firefox Sync because Pushbullet dropped support for iOS; sending tabs from my desktop browser (89.0.1 on Ubuntu) to Firefox iOS works beautifully, but when I send the other way it says 'Sent' but nothing shows up on my desktop. "Synced tabs" appears to be working as expected in both directions. I tried removing both devices from the Manage Devices page and re-syncing but it's made no difference.
