So I had a laptop that had to go under repair (device A), so had to use a different computer (device B). I sign into Firefox, and I can see the synced tabs from device A. For various reasons, the very next day I had to transfer to another computer (device C), so I logout of device B, and login into Firefox in device C. The synced tabs are no longer visible, even though in my account it says device A is still connected to the sync.

Bookmarks and such still load up just fine, I just can't see the device A synced tabs at all. Any clue why this is happening?

Also, is it normal that my email is still showing on the device B menu? Even though it says I logged out successfully, and device B is not showing in sync anymore, in the actual computer it's still showing on the menu above the "new tab" option. How do I remove my email from showing in that particular browse? Uninstall the program entirely?

You can try to disconnect that device via the Firefox Account Settings page.

Sync only sync to the Device A not device B since that isn't the original Device. Sync isn't a backup system. Here's more read on sync: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox/sync https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-set-sync-my-computer https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox/sync-and-save https://support.mozilla.org/bm/products/firefox/sync-and-save https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-choose-what-information-sync-firefox

I thought Sync would just show me all the tabs from all synced devices? But my synced tabs section is just empty, it's not even showing me the tabs from device A.

I've already removed it from my synced accounts, but for some reason the email was still showing. Though, maybe it will go away if I restart/shut down the computer. I haven't checked.
