i have Firefox set for Private Browsing (automatically) and it supposed to clear cookies & data when closing Firefox - it doesn't work, people. i go into Options and Privacy & Security and manually clear them (as well as History) from pc 1. but when i sign into my 2nd pc, all data and info has been transferred to that pc - logins, etc. in my humble opinion, if cleared it should mean that i have a blank slate in pc2. i also use a pc cleaner to remove data, cookies, history, etc and then do a restart but do not open Firefox - pc1 has my backups occur at a later time. do i have to 'unlink' the sync and use 2 pc's as 1 and 1 ??
