Does resetting Sync password clear data if I'm still logged in?

I recently had to wipe my laptop and didn't have a chance to back stuff up off it. Thankfully, all my tabs and passwords are synced with Firefox Sync, but alas, I don't remember my password. So I pulled an old laptop I hadn't touched in a couple years, it was still logged in to Firefox Sync -- I could see all my tabs and passwords there. But the password for Firefox Sync itself? Out of date, turns out it's wrong (must've changed it at some point and not updated.)

So now I'm forced to, eventually, reset my password. What to do? Well, it says it will clear all my data (passwords, tabs, etc.) At the same time, since I'm *already logged in* and can view all the data, I'm hoping it would just stay here locally when it gets wiped server-side, and then I could re-sync my tabs and passwords in. Does this work this way?

tl;dr if I'm already logged into Firefox Sync, and reset the password, will I still lose everything?

Thanks.

Hi, Searched firefox support & googled but can't find any solutions to this.

I need to edit the website field on a saved login & password. Can't find a way to do it & I've tried creating a new login but it still won't let me do what I need to.

A website that I use has 2 logins, depending upon which sub-part I want to go to. The first is, say, www.sitename/sub1/ & the other is www.sitename/sub2/ & each then brings a separate login page. I want to be able to save or create these 2 separate ID's, but the logins & passwords page will only create a login based on www.sitename

Is there any way to do this or am I stuck with having to do this manually each time?

Cheers,

Les (not so sunny) Greece.
