I had Firefox synch on my desktop and 2 androids. The desktop crashed and had to be reformatted. How can I download my synch to Firefox on a new drive? I can log onto synch but can't download it, and I don't have a 2nd computer that's running it. The androids have been synched but are of no use for this purpose.

Hi!

You need the Recovery Key (sometimes known as Sync Key) and to follow these instructions: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/How%20to%20sync%20Firefox%20settings%20between%20computers#w_what-if-im-not-near-my-first-computer

If, as you say, your Android devices are logged you can get the Recovery Key from them with this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/addon/aboutsynckey/
