I use 3 separate computers, all shared. I created a firefox account to have access to my bookmarks,history,etc on all computers. I thought it would be like my own user account but it is syncing all data. Is there a way to keep my browser data separate from others?

Chosen solution

The easiest thing to do is to make a profile folder (not the same as a Firefox Account) for each person. The profile folder is where your user information (bookmarks, passwords, etc) are stored. See Profile Manager - Create, remove, or switch Firefox profiles.

If you want to use the Firefox Sync feature, each person would need to have a Firefox Account under their own email address that they can use.

Hope this helps.
