[SOLVED] Cannot grab tabs from other devices

Using Firefox View, I am unable to view my tabs from other devices after setting up Sync. It is saying Check your internet connection. If you’re using a firewall or proxy, check that Firefox has permission to access the web. as if I don't have a correctly configured connection. However I indeed do and am able to browse the web without any issues. I should mention that I'm running the latest stable flatpak and I'm wondering if this could be related but I have no idea how to manipulate the flatpak to make this work.

It's also worth noting that I can view my tabs from this device on my other synced devices but not vice versa. So it is properly syncing but can't get tabs from my other devices.

I have no fricking idea why that worked but it did! Thanks! You can get there even faster with Ctrl+B and then switching to Synced Tabs from there.
