I've reinstalled Windows, didn't backup Firefox bookmarks (i tought Firefox Sync will do that for me) and now it seems i've lost them. What can i do?

Postáilte

After reinstallation of Windows and reinstalling Firefox, i did the firefox sync with (i think) a newly generated key, because the old one was lost. after all the steps where completed and hitting the sync now button, no syncing was done. no old bookmarks links or directories we're restored. please help! thanks.

You can't get your data from the Sync server without the proper SyncKey, which is used to encrypt your data going to the server and decrypt it when it is downloaded back to Firefox. When you obtain a new SyncKey for an account, the server is wiped of all your data so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
