Description

I had tried Sync in FF 3.x and did not like it. Since there is no way to disable Sync I uninstalled the extension. After upgrading to FF4 all of the Sync preferences from FF 3.x were imported and now Sync is trying to connect and I don't want to use it.

Perhaps:

1) First disable sync on FF4, by selecting deactivate this device.
2) Then login to https://account.services.mozilla.com/ and delete your account altogether

Not-an-expert here, but that's what I would do. If it helps let me know pls

Where does one find this "deactivate this device" option in Firefox 4?

I'm using the Greek version of Firefox. It should be in the Firefox Options -> Sync Tab.

Thanks for the tip. It works to disable. I suppose I can just disable it that way and create a new account every time I want to sync.
