Please explain how you lost your data. What about the rest of your profile? Settings, bookmarks, history, passwords . . . .


Try rebooting your system.


Sometimes when the browser thinks there is a problem with the profile, it will create a new one.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.

Hi

Unless you have them stored in another copy of Firefox, it will not be possible to recover them.

Firefox Sync is not an online backup - it is designed to sync bookmarks and user credentials between copies of Firefox.

If you change your Firefox Account password, data that is being synced is cleared to prevent it from being accessed by a third party that may be changing your password without your knowledge.

Unless you have a backup of your Firefox profile (or the bookmarks) or have them on another copy of Firefox, it will not be possible to restore them.

Is this about bookmarks stored on the Firefox Account Sync server ?

Did you possibly reset the password of the Sync account because you forgot the password?

Resetting the password for the Firefox Account will remove all data stored on the Sync server because this password is used to encrypt your data before it is uploaded to the Sync server and only this password can decrypt this data.
