I would suggest you go to a reputable local repair store to try to recover data from your hard drives.

Do you have the Recovery Key that you generated when creating your sync account, plus the user name and password?

If you have the key (you can't regenerate it or anything, that will delete your data) than just set up sync on another computer and put in that info.

Then you should be able to setup Sync using the Advanced flow in which you provide the user name, password and sync key.

Are you asking about Firefox for Android or Firefox desktop?
