Remove sync data from pc

Posted

I signed into my firefox account to my wife's laptop will mine was in for repair. I have signed out now, and I believe she never set up a sync account. But all of my bookmarks and passwords and autofill is still there for my account. It is making it difficult for her to find her stuff. How do I get mine off. I've tried signing out and doing the command prompt profile manager, but it only shows default user.

If you use Sync then this merges data amongst all connected devices. You would have to clean up each device manually to undo this merge. You will likely see your wife's data on your own computer unless you would change the password of the Sync account before connecting to clear all data stored on the Sync server.

So how do I remove my book marks and passwords from her pc, but retain her information? I hope there is a way other than manual, as I have years of passwords and bookmarks, and sorting through manually would be a real chore
