Clear Private Data wiped my open tabs and history. I use Firefox Sync. Can I recover my tabs?
I've been using a new Android phone for a month. I used Clear Private Data without noticing that on this new phone, all options were checked—wiping out a couple dozen tabs and my history. I'm logged in to Firefox sync. Is there a way to recover the tabs?

If you go to the second device that you use Firefox Sync with, you should have the tabs saved. If they were not picked up by Firefox Sync, I do not believe that you will be able to recover them.
On my desktop, under Synced Tabs, I only see the current handful of tabs open on my phone.
That suggests that tabs were syncced after you cleared history previously and that the syncced data now shows your new tabs.
