Every time reinstall on my main computer, sync appears to lose all its cloud-data? AKA sync will not pull any data down. Windows 10, build 1511.
This happens every time I have to reinstall my system. In the past I would copy my profile over but this is not an available option. I lost over 200, distinct, bookmarks.
This particular time, I did not setup my profile immediately as I had other environment setup concerns so I let firefox go while rebuilding my environment. Afterwards I went in and deleted the start up profile, ran firefox.exe -p created a new one and set up my sync immediately with the same account I had been using less than 36 hours before. It has been setup now for over 12 hours and still nothing. In case it matters, I did have to do a password reset in between loss of old system and start of this system.
Recovery options? I will do whatever is asked...
What is the point of sync if I can not download my data? I have seen it said that it is not a backup solution, OK, so then how does it work? When a new browser is connected it connects to Mozilla sync and then sync asks other devices for their data?
I am royally pissed at this, as far as I am concerned this is pretty much a deal breaker for me. Firefox is better in a lot of ways than chrome, but Mozilla made a big deal about firefox sync, but if it never works than what is the point? The old system worked and was reliable for me. This new system has been nothing but trouble... Why should I use something if a heavily advertised component appears to be broken?
