I formated my Hard Drive but i forgot to save my bookmarks.
Hi, i formated my Hard Drive and i performed a clean windows 10 instalation but i forgot to sync my mozilla and i forgot to save my profile, i remeber i synced my mozilla profile a few months ago but it doesent seem to have any bookmarks even the old ones, is there any way i could recover them?
I am sorry, but there is no other way if you do not have a backup or have the data in another copy of Firefox.Read this answer in context 👍 0

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.
