How to disable Firefox Accounts/Sync in mozilla.cfg?
I'm running the latest 59.0.2 version. I need to disable Firefox Account/Sync on a Windows 7 PC permanently using the lockPref value in the mozilla.cfg file, but I can't figure out which item to lock when perusing the options in about:config.
Some resources tell me to disable services.sync.prefs.sync but this is not listed in about:config on my PC. The closest I have to that is services.synch.prefs.syncID.
Other resources tell me to disable identity.fxaccounts.settings but this is also not listed in about:config on my PC. The closest I have to that is identity.fxaccounts.settings.uri.

This is available since version 60.
Maybe lock all identity.fxaccounts.* prefs that have a URI to an empty string to prevent contacting the Sync server. Other prefs that you can lock to false are services.sync.engine.* prefs.
