Incomplete sync. Why didn't my tabs/site pages transfer? They were marked for syncing.

My Subject pretty well says it. I'm trying to transfer by syncing my desktop Firefox with the Firefox 124 on a newly installed Kubuntu on a new laptop. I have all these functions synced ON. The recent history but not the long-term history, passwords (thank heavens), and all bookmarks got transferred, but not the open tabs/pages. I've done the desktop sync followed by the laptop sync a few times, still without the tabs' transferring. How do i get those transferred?

Correction: my long term history DID get transferred.

I don't think the tabs open automatically. If you open the Sync'd tabs sidebar (you can use Ctrl+B then change from Bookmarks to Synced Tabs), can you find your desktop listed there as a device, with its current tabs listed?

(Also, I think Synced Tabs is more of a real-time list, so if the other Firefox is closed, that list can't sync.)

There was another thread that I think mentioned a cut-off for browsing history. Two months maybe?
