How to restore open tabs from a lost device that was connected with Firefox Sync?

Posted

I use Firefox Sync across multiple devices. Recently the screen of one of the Android devices broke, making it the "lost" device and I replaced it. Now I would like to sign in with the new device in the place of the old one, so make it fetch the open tabs of the old one. Is that possible or are the tabs lost? On the computer "synced tabs" only shows the ones of my other Android device.

Synced tabs expire automatically after one week, so if you waited that long then you are out of luck since you already do not see them on other devices.
