Send Tab to Device

I'd really like to be able to send tabs from my desktop Firefox to my
phone Firefox (e.g. use case from this afternoon: continue reading
some page from my session at work on my phone on the train). The other
direction already seems to work, but the desktop-to-Android version is
apparently lacking in UI/UX/engineering? Gregory Szorc wrote an
extension for the old Sync [1] which has some 1600 users, but that
appears to no longer work with the new Accounts-based Sync. There's an
old bug, 677372 [2]. Is this on anyone's radar? I'd be happy to do
some work on this, particularly if some mentoring was available, but
UX design isn't really my strong suit.

Cheers,

Dirkjan
