Not able to login with my existing account(sharmaroushan@gmai.com). afraid of loosing lot of data. Not able to sync. :(

I used to use the same account when pairing used to work. Now pairing does not work and account also does not work.

I am able to login with the same account in MOZILLA SUPPORT.

Please guide me how to recover my data.

hello sharmaroushan, firefox 29 and upwards is using a different sync system which isn't compatible with accounts set-up in older versions.

in this case you'd probably have to use a workaround and download the prior firefox version, disable automatic updating for the moment (in options > advanced > update), link it to the old sync account and upgrade after you have successfully restored your data this way...
