Hi, I recently reinstalled windows, before that I wanted to make a backup of my data from firefox, addons, bookmarks, history and cookies. When I looked into google it redirected me to this page https://support.mozilla.org/pl/kb/firefox-backup-danych-przechodzenie-na-nowe-urzadzenie Great! I thought. I was logged in, synchronized and was ready to go. After installing new windows, I downloaded firefox, logged in, and nothing... no button to restore my addons or any data. So I searched far and wide and still didn't find anything. Please tell me how to restore my data it was synced.

Hi

Thank you for your question about the Firefox Sync service.

It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device (typically a mobile device such as a tablet or a telephone) running a copy of Firefox. The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.

If you have a copy of your Firefox profile for desktop Firefox, you may be able to recover your bookmarks and other data. Please have a read of this article.

If you have a copy of your data on a mobile version of Firefox, please follow these instructions to connect it to Firefox Sync to copy your data.

Fortunately, my mobile Firefox had all the bookmarks in it, after using second link, it all was restored and now I have them all back. This is still great news as they were the most important to me. Thank you for helping
