Syncing Conundrum?

  • Everything is working fine so this is not a problem, as much as it is, confusion on my part. I run Mint 20-C on 3 different units (2 NUC-PCs & a laptop). On my 2 NUCs I have Firefox (default) and Opera as my only web browsers. When I installed Opera on both recently, I wanted to upload all my FF bookmarks, and that was all. Then, I synced the two Opera browsers on the two NUC PCs with an account, so they would share/sync data with one another. Never did I intend to share data between browsers. But today I was looking in the history folder here on Opera browser and saw my Firefox browser history. Not cool! I run separate browsers exactly to run them as completely separate entities. How is this possible?

  • @paulandrewanderson Opera imports data from default browser doing the installation. You can click in Options in the installer and uncheck such option.
