How to use Firefox Sync to recover lost bookmarks

Posted

I have a Firefox Sync account and I synchronized my firefox data with it. But I have completely cleared up my PC, so can I use Firefox Sync to recover my firefox data?

Hi Zukokun!

Unfortunately Sync is not a back up service. It uses a central server to synchronize data between devices but this data is not maintained if it's not maintained locally (i.e. in your computer).

That said, sometimes if the reconfiguration is fast the data can still be in the server.

Good luck.
