Because of syncing Firefox between various devices, my workplace administrator is now managing my home computer browser. What is the solution?

TyDraniu, I synced my Firefox account on my work computer, my home PC, and my phone. My workplace allowed it at the time, now they don't. Now my home PC has a note at the top of my settings page: Your browser is being managed by your organization. I can't change some settings to my liking. Whatever setting that's blocked at the workplace is also blocked at home. Would I have to create a whole new account and use that from now on, maybe a different account entirely just at the workplace, and not sync that with any personal devices? Thank you

FredMcD, thanks for the leads, will read through those. I might have to delete my home PC account and start over with that. My android account doesn't seem to be affected. Turns out through the help of a computer remote service company that I'm also the administrator of my home PC, but I don't know how to act as one, lol.

Ok. That note has nothing to do with syncing or your workplace. More likely it's due to your security software. Please enter about:policies in the URL bar and check what active policies do you have.
