You can disconnect Sync via "Options/Preferences -> Sync".

Note that you need the Firefox Account to login to this SUMO forum if you use the same email address.

There is no setting like that on my firefox browser. This is half the proble. People make reference to some setting and it should be easy enough, but there is no setting I see like that.

I now have four "remove a synced device ..." tabs open. I do not see anything at all like that.

I see on the far right, a line that looks like books, and click on that it gives a list of options, one that sayts "synced tabs" -- I do not see anything at all like what you ar showing. 

Where is it? Am I not looking in the right place? Ys I see th word sync all around when i click on the options butt I don't see ANYTHING that says disconnect sync. where would I find it? Because are showing me what I do not have.

what does that mean? I do have a firefox account and I log in, and I only use one email, or it used to require a user name, but I do not log in often. I just want to stop the sync.

I finally figured it -- people need to talk in plain talk. I do not do a lot of hanging around chat rooms about computers. It was helpful and I am glad to unsync and then choose what i wanted, and it helped. thanks. I should have said explain it easy because I don't know a lot of computer jargon. THANKS!!!!!!
