How do I get my bookmarks back from the cloud if I changed my password?
I created a Firefox account, synced my laptop, and then the tech foloks at my work did a re-imaging of my laptop. When they tried to get my bookmarks and passwords back, they changed the password for Firefox since it would not take the password I set up. Now, none of the bookmarks or passwords are coming up. My work tech department says it just takes time. However, in a previous chat I was told that if the password gets changed, everything is lost. Is this true?
Additional System Details

I called for more help for you.
Note: Resetting the sync password, or changing its e-mail, will remove all data from the servers.
