I changed my device name from the settings menu. But on the device list it is not reflected. Is this any bug ? How to fix this?

The Browser isn't a O/S function software. Device name are controlled from the O/S naming.

You can change your device name in the firefox settings->firefix account page. My other devices name changes are reflected there, only one of my pc is having this problem.

On the https://accounts.firefox.com/settings/ web page the device name showing should get changed in the "Devices & apps" on that web page.

I was just changed the "device name" in about:preferences#sync at Firefox Account> Manage account and then saw that it was changed under "Devices & apps" to reflect the changed name. And when doing a "device name" change if you are changing the name for the Current device make sure you load that https://accounts.firefox.com page afresh.
