While syncing my laptop to my desktop and set up two way syncing and I have determined this to be a mistake. How do I now change to one way syncing from desktop? Thanks.

1. At the top of the Firefox window, click the Firefox button and select Set Up Sync. The Firefox Sync Setup window will open. 2. Click Create a New Account. 3. Fill in your account details: Email address Choose a password and enter it a second time to make sure you have it right. Agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Confirm that you're not a robot! To change what information gets synced, click Sync Options. The default is to sync your add-ons, bookmarks, passwords, preferences, history and tabs. Finally, click Next. 4. You will see a Setup Complete! message. Click Close to close the progress window and take you back to Firefox. Don't worry, your data will continue to be encrypted and uploaded in the background....

This is all correct at the time of setting up but my issue is to change the syncing direction after setup. Could someone address that?
