I don't want to sync work and home browsing. So I do not log in to Firefox at home. A few days ago, I checked my worke webmail which is a GSuite account. Firefox recognized my login and this morning synced my browsing history.

Normally I have up to 60 tabs open and I leave the browser on all the time. Nice and simple to check in on all the things that interest me or things I want to come back to.

You got it, This morning, all my open tabs are gone. All my local history is gone. I now have a shortcut menu bar full of links to work resources that I can't even access as they are behind the work firewall.

Could there not have been a backup made of what I had open? Does it not make sense that if there are tabs open it is not up to FF to decide to close them? Could there not have been a prompt that asked "Hey we want to sync." "This will close all your open tabs" "Is this OK?" Look, I know you want to make it simple and convenient, but please don't assume you know what that means to everyone. You ruined my day, not made it simple or better. Sincerely, kkrofft
