That's expected. "queryAccounts" is currently hardcoded since FxAccountsClient didn't provide a way to request this information to the server. I'll be adding that functionality today.

That'd be also added today :)

Thanks Shane!

I'll be updating and sharing again the b2g build with the latest changes at the end of my day.
