 When the app is started/restarted, it creates an
 `OnAccountsUpdatedListener` using the Android `AccountManager` in
 `Tabs.attachToContext()`. When a new account is added, the Listener calls
 `queuePersistAllTabs()` where the current tabs are cached in the local
 database on disk. We should avoid all of this. We already deleted most of
 the FxA and Sync related code, we can probably delete this, too.

         mAccountManager = AccountManager.get(appContext);

         mAccountListener = new OnAccountsUpdateListener() {
             public void onAccountsUpdated(Account[] accounts) {

         // The listener will run on the background thread (see 2nd
 ThreadUtils.getBackgroundHandler(), false);
