Two profiles in each of three installations, all sync'ed: how?

Posted

Work profile and home profile, each on three different systems -- 1 Mac, 2 Windows. I'd like each profile on each system to be sync'ed to the same profile on the other systems. Do I need one account or two?

P.S. I am contemplating moving from Chrome where I have two "persons" ("people"), which requires two Google accounts.

P.P.S. I have read some about Containers, but don't understand how they might relate to this question. Feel free to ignore this comment if it's not apropos.

User data is what Sync handles. You need a different Firefox Account for each "Profile" that you want to synchronize.
