I reset the password for firefox account when logging in on a new computer and than i realized i could use my android firefox to see the password. Now the android version of firefox has all the passwords but what will happen if log in on the android device providing new password? Will that sync from the server and delete all passwords?

thanks!

Here is a good test to see what will happen. Download a different version of Firefox (Beta, Dev, or Nightly) and make sure to install into a different directory. Then login to your account and make sure all the sync options are checked in the new browser. I'm pretty sure you will get nothing because you reset the password in Firefox and that should have erased all of the saved data.

If your data is on the Android phone, I would sign out of sync. Then try to export your data from the phone and try to import it back to the pc. The bookmarks should be easy, but the logins... Good Luck.  ;-))
