If this was the only computer that had the data then the formatting wiped clean any data that was there before. And was if there was sync there is a 50/50 chance it was saved but if there was no sync then nothing can be done since the system was formatted wiping clean any data that was there. And how did you restore the data manually? If you didn't follow the Firefox FAQ on backing up data then that is up to the user to figure what they did here.
