Today I reinstalled my PC. I already used Firefox Sync, so assumed all my bookmarks would be safe. So, I did the following:

-Reinstall Windows (8.1) -After successful installation of Windows, I installed Firefox. I lost my account info (username/password), so I needed to recover/reset the password. So I did. No problem here. -After resetting the password, I logged in to Firefox Sync. I noticed all my bookmarks are gone

What happened?

After getting a new computer, downloading firefox, and signing into my account, none of my saved bookmarks or add-ons have synced from my previous computer. Instead, the sync seems to have just saved the fresh version of firefox with no data.


How can I access an older sync point so as to restore the older data for bookmarks and addons?

Every time reinstall on my main computer, sync appears to lose all its cloud-data? AKA sync will not pull any data down. Windows 10, build 1511.

This happens every time I have to reinstall my system. In the past I would copy my profile over but this is not an available option. I lost over 200, distinct, bookmarks.

This particular time, I did not setup my profile immediately as I had other environment setup concerns so I let firefox go while rebuilding my environment. Afterwards I went in and deleted the start up profile, ran firefox.exe -p created a new one and set up my sync immediately with the same account I had been using less than 36 hours before. It has been setup now for over 12 hours and still nothing. In case it matters, I did have to do a password reset in between loss of old system and start of this system.

Recovery options? I will do whatever is asked...

What is the point of sync if I can not download my data? I have seen it said that it is not a backup solution, OK, so then how does it work? When a new browser is connected it connects to Mozilla sync and then sync asks other devices for their data?

I am royally pissed at this, as far as I am concerned this is pretty much a deal breaker for me. Firefox is better in a lot of ways than chrome, but Mozilla made a big deal about firefox sync, but if it never works than what is the point? The old system worked and was reliable for me. This new system has been nothing but trouble... Why should I use something if a heavily advertised component appears to be broken?

So today I have reinstalled Windows 7.

After that, I downloaded FF 44. Signed in my Sync account.

And nothing happened.

All my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc - all gone.

Im actually confused now, it killed all my work for 5 years or so.

1. No, it has nothing with New/Old sync. Before the reintallation I was using the save FF 44 as I do now. 2. Before reinstallatio I checked the Sync preferences (everything was OK, every check box was enabled).

Please help, I wanna kill myself now.

I needed to re-configure my PC due to the adware: "getconstantfun"

Not a big issue to do, including the reloading of software BUT when i re-installed Firefox and asked it to sync, ALL is blank, no apps, no bookmarks, no setups. I did not do a backup or export as not need in past.

Even though I did log-in and try a sync, It is like I have a brand new, blank setup.

Any ideas?

Cheers Mark

Also, I am logged in with my email on the sync but had to create a different account on the website. So what is my user name? Are the two accounts connected????
