to my narrow knowledge that I deliberately remove synced password on my PC, so now on my laptop also gone. Luckily I have a backup portable firefox and in hope of restoring previous saved password. But everytime I started a backup portable firefox it start to sync and my saved password instantly gone (deleted). It does what it suppose to do, no mistake. But what I want is to restore my Saved Password from backup, overwrite deleted password in sync server. And finally my password are available in sync server.

Please advice.

Sorry, Firefox doesn't do an automatic backup locally for passwords, only bookmarks.

I'm not trying to backup anything, instead I'm trying to restore my saved password from backup firefox portable. But everytime I Started my backup firefox portable (with saved password still intact in it) and connected to sync server, It start to delete every last password in it. (Because I previously delete password from sync server from firefox browser from the PC)

What I need is sync server to stop deleting my password or even restoring it with my backup firefox portable.

You first need to disconnect from Sync and then restore the passwords backup. If you are not interested in other data on the Sync account then you can delete the account or possibly change the password to reset your stored data and create the Sync account again and reconnect the other devices. That should sync the passwords to other devices
