At the moment, when signing in to use a firefox account on a firefox install, it will proceed to install all the extensions that you have installed when using firefox on other computers. This could be undesired. The idea is to offer a fresh firefox setu-up, or selected extensions from the other sessions, rather than all of them.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
A checklist of what items to sync though seems more useful (you also become more aware of what you have)
