Computer cleaned sync key gone?
So i took my chances-played with fire.the firefox auora build is amazingly fast and awesome yet the 7.02 update was HIGHLY unstable and caused windows to go into a permanent lock-down the only way i could get to a stable environment was to reinstall windows
Ive completely lost my sync key from my browser...is there not any way i cant download to the browser again : /?
like if i could email or live chat with someone and give all the account info the verfi?
ill be really let down if ive forever lost my info and its just sitting on the server.

already reviewed all that. its like running in circles. ive completely lost any way of ever getting the original key i had
i dont want to replace I am unable to find my key because my computer has been erased
It's a bit like forgetting your password I'm afraid: only you know what it is.
The next time, store your Sync key in a safe place. You can download this free, open source password manager which encrypts your data for that purpose: http://keepass.info/
but there's no way i can identify myself? email? password? hell ill send my IP address or physical router address in
recovering my bookmarks all stored passwords and everything will be 10x the hassle compared to having to mail my I.D (if that were the case)
there's absolutely nothing i can do? no matter that my info is on the firefox server associated with my email and password and all that..

well thank you for the quick reply's and the final link
.....time to load a bowl and try to remember 30 website passwords or so >_
Most sites have a "Forgot password?" link so that you can reset it, so not such a big deal. ;)
You could experiment with some file recovery tools though there's no guarantee they will work. See this one as an example: http://r-datarecovery.com/can-you-recover-files-from-a-formatted-hard-drive-file-recovery-formatted-os/
Good luck anyway.
