I formatted my computer and then when I had to login to my Firefox Browser. It was not taking any of my old passwords. So, I had to reset my Firefox Sign In password. After the password was reset and sign in. I couldn't find any of my previously synced bookmarks. The synced bookmarks are extremely important for me. I need them back. Kindly suggest and show some way to get them back. Please help. Please Please,

what can i do to restore my synced data.??

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.
