what if I have 2 firefox sync accounts?

Posted

What if I have 2 separate firefox sync accounts from different computers? If I log out of one and try to log on the other on the same computer, it says it will merge the 2. How does that work?

Hi mmqb817,

This means that the profile that you are attaching to the second account will be merged with the profile that you are logging into. If you wish to maintain two different accounts, to avoid this, you may need to create a new profile.

All the selected synced parts of the profile (ie. passwords, bookmarks) will be merged in the cloud then sync down to the newly attached profile.

Profile Manager - Create, remove, or switch Firefox profiles
