If you are using Firefox 4 and are still unable to figure-out how to access tabs from other computer here's the solution.

  1. Press Alt key to reveal the classic menu in Firefox 4 and navigate to History -> Tabs From Other Computers option.
  2. Tabs From Other Computers
  3. Another trick would be to open a new tab/windows, type-in about:sync-tabs and press enter.
  4. Firefox Sync Tab Operative
