When I was checking performance issues, Firefox wiped out my cell phone and I'm trying to figure out how to fix it.

I clicked into the Developer on Firefox, then the web console, then the performance check. I thought it was finished and closed it out. When I left the room and came back in my cell phone information apparently had been deleted and Windows was not recognizing it. The phone was working fine before this so I don't know what happened.

I'm trying to figure out how to restore my phone.

So, your problem is with Firefox for Android? Or is it Firefox for iOS?

Let us know and a Moderator / Admin can move this thread to the appropriate queue. There are separate queues for support for each of the three - Firefox for Desktop - Android - iOS.

This is a Windows Smart Phone. It's Firefox for Desktop.

Why do you think your problem with the Windows Smart Phone is related to Firefox?

I was on Firefox trying to list to a music video. I clicked onto the Firefox Developer, then the web console, then the performance. When I was trying to check the performance, it apparently wiped out my cell phone that was plugged into the computer.

When I tried to use the phone, it wouldn't work. I thought it had just turned off but it's still not working.

This sounds really bizarre. Isn't the Performance tab in Developer tools just a browser performance recorder and not a system check or stress test? Is there any way it can interact with a phone plugged in via USB if it's just a passive recorder?
