When you signed into Sync on your laptop did you have any problems? Such as needing to reset the password for your Firefox Account?

Also, are you sure that your old hard drive on the PC is 'fried'? Many times the operating system won't work but the drive itself will work enough to allow that drive to be connected as an external hard drive to a different computer so as to be able to recover data from the old hard drive.

Question owner

Thanks for the reply Firefox did not showed any problem during signing in. You are right about operating system but device itself is not visible.Drive is not showing. I even checked with service centre but no luck.Hard disk is dead.I thought mozilla has some back up regarding browsing but the thing is my pc device is not visible in my device section and all my history, passwords, bookmarks everything gone. Is there any way to recover please help me.
