How do I sync multiple users' info so that it is always the same?

Posted

I do not want to sync one user's info across multiple devices. I want to sync multiple user's info so that all users on a computer see the same Firefox setup -- menus, extensions, etc.

How can I do this?

HI C.W. Billow , I would imagine that you would have to create one account that was attached to each profile of Firefox on that computer. Please take note to change the name of the computer in each of the profiles on the same computer. This way they can be recognizance as different "devices".

I found a workaround: I back up my setup with MozBackup, and then I can recover that to the individual users.

Except, as I posted elsewhere, that doesn't seem to work for Microsoft accounts, since they are net accounts and not local.
