Firefox Bookmarks Sync question

I currently have three laptops connected on a home network and all three use Firefox. At one time I sync the computers and all three show the same bookmarks. Problem is one is used by my son which has no interest in my bookmarks and would rather have his own. Is there a way to UN-SYNC his computer so that he can have his own bookmarks?



Yep, you need to remove your Son's PC from the devices Firefox is setup to sync:
At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button and then select Options.At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Tools menu and then select Options.On the menu bar, click on the Firefox menu and select Preferences....At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Edit menu and select Preferences.

Click the menu button and choose Options.Preferences.

Go to the Sync panel and click on Unlink This Device. A prompt will appear.

Click Unlink to confirm. Your device's data will no longer be synced with the server's Sync data and you'll be logged out of your Sync account.

You can also manage the sync options so it doesn't sync bookmarks and continues to sync add-ons for example. It's under Tools->Options->Sync



Just create another account for your son. Syncing is done based on the account you setup. You can create as many accounts as you want.



That worked out well. Thanks
