Hi, I've forgotten my firefox password, so I had to change it. After this, I lost my bookmarks. Is it possible to recover them? (I don't have buckup files. I recently reinstalled windows so I also has no data in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ )
Regards, Marcin Sawicki
But as I posted, changing the password will remove all data from the servers.Read this answer in context 👍 1

When you reinstalled Windows, did you choose to save your data? Open your user profile. Look for a folder called Windows.old

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.
I don't have Windows.old folder.
Ye, I was talking about bookmarks from sync. I remember that after every reinstall I just had to sync Firefox and I had my bookmarks back.
