Hi Dirkjan,

Are you looking for the tabs that you have sent from your desktop device to your phone? If you go to the tabs tray (the icon with a the number of tabs next to the url bar), there’s a tab with the sync icon (it might look like a refresh icon) that should have all the tabs that you’ve synced to your phone.
