I have problem with sync

Posted

Hi, I have a little problem with sync. I reinstalled my Windows. Completely And now I do not have my Mozilla bookmarks. It happened because I had forgot my Mozilla password and I reset a new password. When I logged in with a new password I have empty bookmarks. How can I recover my old bookmarks?

No, Sync is for Syncing devices (plural) so if you have them on another device you can get them, if not they are gone.

If you Formatted they are gone

If you Refreshed Win 10 they are on C:\ in Old.windows

Hi, sorry to hear that. If you Refreshed Windows and not formatted then you can find it in the Folder old windows on C:\ The will be in the same file structure as this location (more or less).

fyi for the future, maybe email them to yourself :

Thanks for the help. But I installed windows with formatting :( I thought when I logged in with old password the bookmarks will remain. I thought they were somewhere in Mozilla's server or something like that
