Hi there! So, I wanted to ask, does resetting my Firefox Account password remove my browsing history, bookmarks, cookies, etc?

If it does, I cannot make a recovery key, since I do not know my password. If it doesn't, then I will reset it.

Thanks and see you later!

If you are talking about sync;

Resetting the sync password, or changing its e-mail will remove all data from the servers. The username and password are used to create the encryption.

This is a security feature. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ive-lost-my-firefox-sync-account-information

  • I’ve forgotten, or don't have access to, my Firefox Account email address

Note: Only the data on the servers is cleared. The profile data is not changed or removed.

Nope, I did not mean about Firefox Sync. I meant my data on Firefox, like my saved bookmarks, browsing history, etc. What will happen if I reset my password and my account is logged into the browser, will that reset the data?
