How to stop Top Sites from sync?

I have the Options set to sync in Sync Settings, but also these two values to false in about:config:

  • services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.startup.homepage
  • services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.startup.page

And top sites do sync after all. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

NOTE: None of the already asked (and archived) questions solve my problem.

Hello maxdule,

I don't use Sync, so I can't check this myself, but would you try these prefs (I don't know if your home page is the new tab page ?) :

services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtabpage.pinned

and/or (try the above mentioned first)  :

services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.newtabpage.enabled

After you've changed the value(s) to false, then close and restart Firefox.

Does that work  ?

If not : please change the value(s) back to "true".

You've just saved my day.

Just a note - this prefs need to be altered prior to turning synchronization on, or it's too late :)

Thanks again!
