Removed firefox profile folder
Hello everyone, i completely uninstalled firefox and removed the profile folder from app data. And then i reinstalled firefox and used my old sync id to restore my adds ons,history,bookmarks , passwords but it didn't work. Does deleting profile folder also delete sync data on server. Although when i install windows and sync with my account everything gets restore and i can grab all my data from sync account. Please help thanks
Thank you for your question about the Firefox Sync service.
It appears from your question, that you are using Firefox Sync as a back up service. This is not what Sync is designed to do. The Firefox Sync service takes a copy of the data you wish to include and transfers it to a second device (typically a mobile device such as a tablet or a telephone) running a copy of Firefox. The storage in between all attached devices is both temporary and fragile and is not stable enough to be (and is not designed as) a reliable backup service.
If you have a copy of your Firefox profile for desktop Firefox, you may be able to recover your bookmarks and other data. Please have a read of this article.
If you have a copy of your data on a mobile version of Firefox, please follow these instructions to connect it to Firefox Sync to copy your data.
