How to stop syncing but keep everything on the device?

Hello,

Like the title stated, I am using sync to basically transfer everything from one device to another. I do not need the sync function after this. So how do I disable sync without losing all the data?

Hi David, on the Settings page, you can deselect the categories of data that you want to remain "static" and not sync. See: How do I choose what information to sync on Firefox?

You also could disconnect from your Firefox Account (sign out from the menu WITHOUT removing data), but if you use other Firefox services, then you would need to log into them as a separate step.
