Gradually, the game Taonga Island became unplayably slow as you started insisting more often that I sync my accounts, mails, etc..

I will NEVER sync because I do not intend to give you in a neat wrapper what others pay you for, I want to remain anonymous as much as possible, and I certainly do not intend to give ANYBODY a neat package of linked and authenticated accounts etc. about myself. That is why I am not on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn etc etc..

STOP demanding I do this SYNC shit. Or I will tell everyone I work with, play with, etc to NEVER us any Mozilla products as sooner or later, they are going to blackmail you.

If you are talking about sync, sync is an option. Shut down sync from here.

[v57+] Type https://accounts.firefox.com/settings<enter> in the address bar.

Can you attach a screenshot of what you see about Sync?

Every time I use my pc, especially Firefox, I get "prompted" very intrusively to finally, please, what is my f-ing problem, finish sync-ing my stuff. I DO NOT WANT TO!!!!!

Note the number of ! to see how mad it makes me by now. And no, it does not help to shut it down in my profile page. I never started it in the first place and it keeps on coming back, that is why I call it coercion.

You can check that those pages aren't set as multiple homepages.

You can check the homepage setting.

Firefox supports multiple homepages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.
