I recently removed and re-added (with a new sync name) a device from and to my Firefox Sync account. Then I checked to make sure the device (the old name) is disconnected from manage account page. Later I noticed that in the "Send Tab to Device" list I still have that old name listed (along with the new name) and in the "Synced Tabs" list I still see the old device with a page that was presumably open when I originally disconnected it.

Is there anything I can remove the old devices from the Send and Sync Tab lists given that there's nothing in my account list of devices to Disconnect?

Thanks

There are simply way too many duplicate devices that are being created.

How many is too many? 15. Fifteen duplicate devices.

I have three 4 actual devices:

  • iMac running 10.11 (El Capitan)
  • iPhone running iOS 13
  • iPad running iOS 13
  • Surface Pro running Windows 10

Why are there so many devices being created? How can I stop this?

1) Sending bookmarks becomes a guessing game because I don't know which device is current 2) I have to go in an manually delete devices ON A REGULAR BASIS, so the "Send Tab to Device" feature is actually usable 3) Does it have anything to do with the incessant code verification emails I get every time I'm somehow logged out of my Firefox account even though I was using it not half an hour earlier?

PLEASE tell me how to stop all of this. I don't have this problem with Safari or Chrome.
