FxA Signed-in UX

My recommendation for web is no new tab, just a basic redirect. We need to behave like a native sign in would. We can't offer a popover, but many sites do redirects (if just to other pages on their own site) for sign in. We're fabulous enough to also offer it for sign up, right?

If the detour occurs in a new tab/window/web view, the initial tab may be difficult to impossible to return to in certain browsers.
