I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

I had to update firefox to current version to pay a bill on a web site. I did it. I was recommended to sync another device during install, I did that too. I worked for a few hours on firefox just now, then it crashed. It reported data it had but now I have nothing. No history, no bookmarks, NOTHING. I logged in, my username and password worked find but it's like a fresh install, no data. Over 10 years of history, hundreds and hundreds of pages and passwords all gone. I synched to my phone as it insisted I install another device. Supposedly that was done but I have no idea how to use that or what it can do. They claimed it was a backup.

I'm at a total loss.

My laptop uses Firefox 3.6.8, but my Windows XP desktop is stuck at Firefox 3.0.19. (Firefox crashes when I use 3.5 or 3.6 on my XP system. I've never been able to debug the reason.)

So, will Firefox Sync work with this mix?

Thanks

Sync won't install. I've tried several times on both XP and Vista machines, and after install/restart - nothing. No desktop icon, no screen prompts - its like nothing happened. Feels like a waste of time!

How much more detail can I add? I've got Firefox 3.6.8; I've tried to set up Home - but similar experience. I re-open Firefox and everything is exactly as it was. I've downloaded to both my XP desktop (and was charged $1 by iTunes for Sync, even though it's shown as 'Free'!), and - nothing. The download process looked OK, but after re-start, there were no on-screen prompts on restart, no desktop icon, nothing - not even a saved file in 'downloads' - my default location. I'm in the UAE, btw.
