Installed a new SSD and a fresh Windows 10 install and Firefox. When I sign in to my Firefox account it won't sync any of the data into the new install although it is showing as a new Device. I've tried uninstalling, removing all app data and reinstalling to no avail.

There is an error log with the following:

Hi

Thank you for your question about the Firefox Sync service.

It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device (typically a mobile device such as a tablet or a telephone) running a copy of Firefox. The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.

If you have a copy of your Firefox profile for desktop Firefox, you may be able to recover your bookmarks and other data. Please have a read of this article.

If you have a copy of your data on a mobile version of Firefox, please follow these instructions to connect it to Firefox Sync to copy your data.

The problem is the laptop isn't connecting to sync. It isn't synching any data from the other devices. This is the intended use of sync I am sure of it. I am trying to get the data from my other devices attached to my Firefox account to sync into the new device. Although it shows up in my devices list it is not connecting to sync the data. I m following the instructions in your link but am getting error logs showing a failed sync connection. I am not sure why. Any help is greatly appreciated.
