Sync is not longer working

Posted

Hi, I had Sync on my laptop and android device around 3 years ago. Then I have changed my phone and stopped using firefox for while. Now I want to have access to synced bookmarks again but sync is failing, however account is still valid. I can logged in. I have tried to recreate places.sqlite but this did not help. What else can I do?

It is possible that data you previously stored on the Sync server has expired or otherwise has been removed. If that is the case then you won't be able to use Sync. Keep in mind that Sync is meant to sync data between connected devices and not as a backup.

Yep It should be it, I didn't know that data could be removed even if account is still valid. Thanks for help.
