I installed FireFox (free) on my wife's computer and it synced with my computer. I tried uninstalling FireFox and starting over but it still syncs with my computer. I tried turning off sync on my computer and then installing on hers but it still displays my Favorites, etc.

My computer is running Win 8.1 and my wife's is running Win 10. I run FireFox and she has Edge on Win 10.

Type about:preferences#sync in the address bar. Turn off sync.

The first thing I tried was turning off sync. Then uninstalling her Firefox and re-installing Fire Fox. I have even used Revo uninstaller on her computer and then installing FireFox. Always the same result, my sync settings on her computer.
