Can I recover History from Sync?
After a Windows 8.1 Update and a cleanup with CCleaner, all of my Firefox history disappeared. I opened places.sqlite the history table was cleared. I really don't understand how that happened but for purposes now that's not relevant.
I looked in the bookmarkbackups folder and got yesterday's backup, but that file only has bookmarks, no history.
Up until last night I was heavily using Android Firefox Beta with Firefox Sync. I know the history was on the server. I disabled Sync from my PC, hoping to prevent it from uploading instructions to delete all of the history that is there, but I'm sure I did that too late - the Android app now shows the same history as the PC.
Is there any backup of this in Sync that we can recover?

If you have the data on your Android device and are not signed into the Windows device, all you need to do is make sure that the Android device data has synced, then sign in using your account credentials on you Windows device to Sync the data across.
