Can I sync Firefox on a Windows/Linux dual boot on one computer?

Posted

I want to use Sync on both OS on my one laptop. Is it possible to sync FF between when I am logged in using Windows with when I am logged in using Linux?

Chosen solution

Yes, you can use Firefox Sync for that. Even if you are using dual-boot, each operating system will show up on the Firefox Sync system as a separate device. Your Firefox Sync device list will just show one Windows device and one Linux device.

Great - thanks so much. I wasn't sure that it would work since both are using the same computer. Much appreciated!
