Sync old bookmarks to New devices
My question is: Can i sync my old bookmarks, from previous sync that Firefox made automatically from my previous Phone and/or PC? I got a new Phone recently, and my pc is also relatively New. So i do NOT have any local backup files on my PC from Firefox. I have only recently installed Firefox, and I did that AFTER i got my New Phone.
So is there any way I can restore/recover my bookmarks from the previous sync of my previous Android Phone for example? I can see it liste under "My Devices" in Firefox, where it says that it was last synced a couple of months ago?
Thank you in avance on what I Hope is a solution to the problem, cause I really want my bookmarks back

Thank you for your question about the Firefox Sync service.
It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device (typically a mobile device such as a tablet or a telephone) running a copy of Firefox. The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.
If you have a copy of your Firefox profile for desktop Firefox, you may be able to recover your bookmarks and other data. Please have a read of this article.
If you have a copy of your data on a mobile version of Firefox, please follow these instructions to connect it to Firefox Sync to copy your data.
