Sync is not a backup service. If you don't have a recovery key there is no way to get the data currently on Sync. (It's a recovery feature).

Also, you are using an ancient version of Firefox. Please update to Firefox 31 ASAP Update Firefox to the latest release

If you can get a hold of the old computer, there is a small chance.
