Well title says it all but for more context I have 2 laptops. One of them I am currently using and the other I sold so what I did was I logged out of firefox and did not press the check box that asked if I wanted to delete data. I believe this laptop was synced to my fire fox account.

After logging out of firefox and backing up all my personal files I used windows reset to reset my pc and to completely wipe the laptop of my information so I can ship it out to the buyer. With that said I was wondering if I am able to obtain the tabs from my time using the laptop. When I go to firefox sync I don't see the tabs I had open from my old laptop.

You can install the About Sync extension in Firefox 72 and newer on desktop to check what data is stored on the Sync server via the about:sync page provided by this extension.

Close and restart Firefox to access the about:sync page added by this extension (see the about:about page for possible about pages).
