My logins (username/email addresses & Passwords) are still available, even after I cleared "Everything" history; signed out of my Fox sync account; cleared "Cookies and Site Data".

So for example, after doing the above, I'm now logged out of my gmail account, but if someone steps in front of the computer I was using, runs Firefox, and goes to Gmail.com, they can see all the gmail accounts I have and can log in to them.

How can I remove all logins from the Firefox browser on the public computer?

Firefox 76.0 Windows 10

Sync is used to share data between profiles and systems. Disconnecting sync does not remove any data.

Passwords are stored in two files in the profile. logins.json and key3.db [v58+]key4.db : These are the password files. Remove Both !

Thanks FredMcD. Your comment is informative and helpful.

Shouldn't Firefox developers make the removal of passwords part of the Privacy&Security options? I mean, which person would want to remove his browsing history yet want to keep all his logins saved on a computer?

I doubt I'm the only one with this question. How can I bring this to the attention of the Firefox developers?

Saving login data or not is part of the browsers options.

You can use "Forget About This Site" to remove all data (except bookmarks) for a specific domain.

Note that Session Restore also can store cookie data. You can prevent that by using "Clear history when Firefox closes" to clear cookies and browsing history.
