Bug causing a privacy breach when using Firefox app for iOS

Hi there, I just downloaded the Firefox mobile app for iOS and when I opened the app for the first time got a terrible surprise. The home page was displaying a list of "recently visited pages" but (1) they weren't recently visited, and (2) they were pages I'd visited using a private tab on another Firefox browser (that wasn't supposed to save cookies). It felt like a BIG violation of my privacy. When I searched online for info about this, I found a Reddit/r/firefox thread with others describing the same privacy breach 4 months ago. PLEASE FIX THIS.

Hi

Do you have browsing history selected as an items to be synced from another copy of Firefox in Firefox Sync?

I just opened the Firefox browser on my laptop (the only other device I use Firefox on), and when I looked at Preferences and Sync, I was not signed into Sync, and I don't recall setting that up. In any case, my understanding is/was that private mode browsing history would (a) not be synced to other devices, and (b) not be broadcast onto a home/welcome page. That seems like an egregious bug, no?
