hey I used Firefox in my previous Windows, and even though the sync section of my account was active, I can not recover the data now. Is there a way to solve this problem?

Did you possibly reset the password of this Firefox Account as that would have reset all data stored on the Sync server ?

I have discovered that the company I work at is blocking the connection to Firefox Sync service. Is there a way to sync to a pendrive?

I did this about:sync-log and saw that ever sync attempt had an error code. I recently refreshed my desktop firefox browser and all my logins were deleted. They are still on my mobile phone firefox. I even set up lockwise app on my phone. I cannot get my logins back on my desktop. Why? What can I do?
