I will sign into my firefox account when on a new computer to access my bookmarks/passwords etc. When I sign out, after I am done using the shared computer, my bookmarks and passwords remain.

I even uninstalled firefox, but when I reinstalled it the next time I used the computer, all of my bookmarks and passwords were again available without signing in.

How do I remove these from the shared computer without deleting my firefox account?

Note that the OP is on MacOS, so the portable version is not an option (Windows only).

You can use the Profile Manager to delete this profile and remove the files as well (about:profiles won't allow to remove the current profile).

You can use sync to share data between profiles. But some data cannot be shared between different Firefox versions and computer systems.
