Sync lost after reinstalling Windows
After reinstalling Windows I've lost all synced bookmarks and logins Is there any chance to have them back?
Thanks in advance Viktoria

Firefox Sync is NOT A DATA BACKUP SERVICE. It wasn't designed for that purpose, so it doesn't always function that way. Sometimes there's not always a complete or permanent copy of your data stored on the Firefox Sync servers.
Additionally, some account actions - like resetting your password - will delete data that's stored on Firefox Sync.
That said, did you reinstall Windows using the Windows reset feature or did you completely repartition your drive using a Windows installation disc or USB?
If you used the Windows reset feature, that usually places your personal files in a
windows.old folder on your hard drive. If that's the case, your old Firefox data may in there.
