What should i do if someone steals my Firefox sync key?
Recently I recovered from an infection/hacker and I could tell that this person was viewing all my files on my PC including my FF sync key should I delete my old sync account and make a new one or can generate a new key for my existing sync account?

I would suggest deleting your account and backing up data if necessary. After that, you would need to create a new account.
Cool that's what I thought so once I delete my account and make new in FF it will generate a new sync key correct? Also I made some backups with Mozbackup before I formated the drive and I had my local technician run a antimalware/antivirus scan my thumbdrive and he found nothing.
Yes, a new key will be generated.
