Undo Sync

bold textI used Sync to migrate an extensive store of Firefox bookmarks from family PC to my new Mac. Worked perfectly; however, I notice that now it is still syncing, and I see my husband's search history each time I click '+' for a blank tab. I only wanted the bookmarks, etc. to sync ONCE to get them to the new machine. How do I STOP / SEVER the syncing of the two machines now? It seems to be doing it automatically without my clicking "Sync Now" (Tools>>Sync Now). We have our own machines now & I don't want his bookmarks or history on my Firefox. His machine: Windows7 Professional, Firefox 15.0.1 My machine: Mac OS X 10.8, Firefox 15.0.1

Thanks very much! I'm so glad it's that simple. I was afraid if I tried that, it would disappear all the migrated bookmarks. Thanks a bunch!
