How does initial sync deal with settings on secondary PC?
There are two ways that I can imagine Firefox sync deals with the INITIAL sync:
1- Ignore sync-able settings on the secondary desktop and wipe them out with settings from the primary desktop.
2- Synchronize/merge the settings from the two.
In my case, I want -1- and, I suspect, the answer is -2-. How can I achieve -1-?

OK, I ended up copying the profile from the primary desktop to the secondary desktop so that it would make no difference whether the initial sync was override or merge. Then I setup the sync and can now answer my own question:
The default is merge. There is an option to override, but it's not an "in your face option" -- you have to push the Options (I think) button to make the choice.
But I recommend doing the profile copy because that will copy most of your addons. Why not ALL? I have no idea.
