I have multiple times format pc and then instal firefox and log on in sync and i get back all of my bookmarks and paswords. But today that was not the case.

What i did difrently? I loged in with google account instead of email and password on sync page. (from the begining i newer joined my google email with google account in mozila sync service, i always loged in with email and password.) And somehow mozila created new account which is empty ??? If i log out of firefox sync and log in with email and password then i get again redirected to this new firefox sync account which is joined with a google account. How can i get back my bookmarks and passwords? I waited for one hour and password section in browser is still empty and no bookmarks in browser. :(

Hi

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.

Hilfreich?
