after some research I think the easiest way is to: 1. just disconnect sync from the public compter: Preferences --> Sync --> Disconnect (IMPORTANT) 2. then clear the browsing history: click at the taskbar on history --> clear recent history 3. and then delete the bookmarks: again taskbar --> show all bookmars --> delete every single one

that`s it. when you don`t disconnect sync first, all data will be away so do that at the beginning.

OMG!

You sync'd your Passwords to a device that you don't own or control? And one that is available to the "public"? Tell us you're joking.


To delete your Passwords do this: Tools > Options -> Security --> Passwords => Saved Password = use the Remove All button. Then restart Firefox.

And you may want to change all your Passwords, too.

What lead you to believe that Sync would work in that manner? That would be counter to the purpose of the Sync service.

Thats because I thought that when I log out from sync all my private data vanish from any device, but obviously I was wrong.
