2 laptops. Removing Synched Firefox from one laptop. Will it affect the other laptop? [selling one]

The question pretty much sums it up. Selling one laptop so I need to remove Firefox that has my personal data but I am wondering if it is going to affect the other laptop [synched] which I will be keeping.

Yeah, you should be fine. As long as you don't remove all the information in one of the Firefox while it's synced, the information will be maintained in the rest of the synced devices.

You have 2 options. Either remove Firefox completely or unsync the device that you want to stop using.

I hope it helps, Ibai

IF you do it in OFFLINE it won't affect.
My suggestion remove firefox completely.

Manage your Sync Account - > http://mzl.la/MnTqus

Uninstall Firefox from your computer -> http://mzl.la/Oczb8H

Actually thinking about his I "deleted the synch" WHILE ON LINE of the laptop I am selling. Now I am removing Firefox off that laptop. I think it is good to go. I have to delete also some files [???] that are in "downloads" that I see. Thanks... Ara
