How do I disable sync-ing passwords *before* logging in to sync? I don't want the passwords to be sent via sync, ever.

There are no settings for sync-ing under preferences unless you first log in and sync. Sync settings just says "sign in."

How do I sync tabs or preferences without sync-ing passwords?

There's no File > Security in Firefox.

I can't find a "Notes via Operating System" or similar anywhere.

Try to toggle the related sync engine pref to false on the about:config page.

  • services.sync.engine.passwords = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
