I remove certain plugins and they reinstall themselves across all my synced machines.

I have sync enabled on a desktop (Win 10 64bit), a windows laptop (also Win 10 64bit), and both OSX and Windows 10 on my MacBook Pro (both 64 bit). There are some legacy plugins that I don't care about any more, and I try to delete them. They delete successfully on whichever machine, and are gone upon restarting Firefox there...but later or the next day, they're back.

It acts like there's a sync issue, and it thinks that the plugins should be reinstalled because the "sync" master says they should be there. Am I missing something? Is there a way to log into Sync and remove them from there, so that they're removed from ALL my Firefox installations?

Problem with Sync and Firefox Profiles

Hello,

recently I used the Profiles feature of Firefox where you can use multiple profiles on one PC. I also set up Firefox Sync on the new profile, so my form data etc. is available there. However, I deactivated syncing of addons and settings. When I switched between the two profiles, suddenly addons from the second one were installed to the first. Also the second one now had the Sync settings of my first profile, where everything is synced. I reverted everything to the settings it was before. I thought maybe using the same device name was causing this and changed it for the second profile.

Today again an addon from the second profile was installed on my first profile. Is this a bug?

I hope this can get fixed soon.
