Disable Firefox Account / Sync

Firefox has a feature where they want you to register for. It’s Firefox Account. Sometimes called Firefox Sync. It’s something I don’t like to do, it’s a browser and it doesn’t need to know who I am. That’s why I disabled the Firefox Account feature including the button and tab in settings.

Here is how:

  1. Open about:config and search for identity.fxaccounts.enabled of copy paste this into your address bar about:config?filter=identity.fxaccounts.enabled
  2. Double click to toggle to false
  3. Restart Firefox
