I am using a computer that I share with others. Will any one elses actions be reflected on my sync account. Can I log in when using Firefox sync on that computer?

Chosen solution

If the other users are using your Logon User Account in Windows, they will have access to your Firefox installation, and thus have access to your Sync data.


It is best for each user to have their own Logon User Account or have them share a guest account.
