Lost all my bookmarks, logins, cookies etc after resetting my Windows.
1) Cannot restore them even after logging into account with same email address. 2) Windows.old does not exist. 3) Tried %APPDATA% method to use "Gibberish".default folder for profile recovery. (Might need some guidance here but overall it did not work too.
Firefox was always logged in with same email account and it should've synced all the data.

When you mean reset Windows what exactly is meant by that? Was that restore to last working image or complete reformat reinstall? Sync isn't for backupdata it's only sync the information.
Complete reformat reinstall
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.
Looks like i lost all of my bookmarks etc because I was under the impression that Firefox sync is gonna save it. I don't even know why firefox sync exists but its none of my concern anymore.. Such a bummer man.. Thanks everyone.
As was previously mentioned it's not a backup but just as a syncing information not a backup device.
