The password for the sync account can be changed after Disconnecting the account
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 Reproducible on Firefox 29 beta 5 (20140403132807), latest Aurora 30.0a2(20140406004002) and latest Nightly 31.0a1 (20140406030203) under Win 7 64-bit, Ubuntu 32-bit and Mac OSX 10.9.2. Steps to reproduce: 1. Go to Tools -> Set up sync.. 2. Click on Get started button 3. Sign in 4. Click on Manage button 5. Click on the Manage button from Options panel, Sync tab: the page https://accounts.firefox.com/settings opens in a new tab 6. Open Menu Panel, select the sync e-mail address 7. In Options panel, Sync tab, select "Disconnect.." and "Continue" in the dialog 8. On the tab left open at step 5 (Manage account), select "Change password" 9. Enter Old and New password and click "Change Password" - Password changed is displayed 10. Sign in again - the new password is requested Expected results: User shouldn't be able to change the password after disconnecting. Actual results: The password can be changed, the settings page is not automatically refreshed. Notes: 1. At step 7, the page about:account is refreshed 1. This issue is not a regression
"Disconnecting" in Firefox doesn't sign you out on accounts.firefox.com - that's a known issue. There are other bugs tracking similar issues.
We can do better to differentiate the 'account manager' website from the about:accounts sign in pages. Currently, the two look the same and can be confusing that they're really two disconnected application states.
