I use Firefox on several devices. Is there anyway to roll up the list of all the synced tabs, and then just click on another device to show only the tabs on that device? Also, is there anyway to sort the device list? Both of these options would make it so much faster and easier to use synced tabs.
Thanks for any tips!

Hi Kurt, on your Mac, does the "Synced Tabs" sidebar list the information you would like to see? I don't know the most efficient way to get to that sidebar, but you can show the Bookmarks sidebar (
Ctrl+BCommand+B) and then switch the bar by clicking Bookmarks to open a drop-down list.
Each device should have its own section that you can open/close the way you do with bookmark folders.
As for the order, I don't think there's any way to modify that. It seems related to the order that the pages in those tabs were last (re)loaded.
Digression: Saving the List
On Reddit, someone asked about how to export the list to a document. There is no built-in way to do that, and add-ons cannot see that information. So I had to come up with something a bit hackerish.
In case you might need that in the future, there is a script you can run in the Browser Console (Command+Shift+J), a developer tool with special privileges to query Firefox bits and pieces. Be careful with scripts from strangers, obviously.
This article has more information on the console: https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Tools/Browser_Console
Here is my script -- it generates a file in the style of a bookmark export file: https://gist.github.com/jscher2000/b7094b3e74b95e5ba9c26f1f685bda6e
