I choosed to sync only passwords at work. Now i see that Firefox switched to sync bookmarks and forgot to sync passwords. I choosed passwords again and forced Sync to synchronize again from Tools menu. After that i found out that now history is also checked for syncing :/

I have quite a few accounts connected to Sync and i have seen it happening randomly on other computers too.

I'm using Firefox 4.0b7

Sync synchronizes which engines are enabled across your computers. So if you enable history sync on one computer, it will be enabled on all, and if you disable password sync on one computer, it will be disabled on all, etc. My guess is that this is waht you're seeing.
Sander, does Philipp's comment address your concern? If so, I'd like to close this bug.
