My Windows 10 desktop system recently suffered a serious failure. The SSD C: drive suffered some sort of catastrophic fault, and the device is completely unresponsive and it's contents are unrecoverable. All of my data files were on a different drive and are backed up in multiple places, but all my app config files stored in the appdata directory--including my Firefox profile--are gone forever.

I replaced the drive, reinstalled Windows and all my apps, etc., etc., including Firefox, which synced with my Windows laptop and everything is just about back to normal. EXCEPT that all of my 50 or so open tabs from that machine are no longer available. From the Synced Tabs list on my laptop, I can see an entry for the newly restored desktop system, but the tab list for that device is empty. In the Devices & Apps list on my Firefox Account page, I can see entries for all of my devices include TWO entries for the desktop system, the newly restored system as well as the old pre-crash system.

So the question is this:

1) Does Mozilla store the open tabs list for that system on their servers; and

2) Can I recover that tabs list somehow?

Thanks in advance. --scott--
