Hello, Having a little difficulty with which I am hoping someone might assist. My primary PC has died on me, and I am making attempt at transferring my life over to another for temporary use. I have installed Firefox as it was my primary browser on this now-dead PC and logged in to my Firefox account; however the bookmarks in this browser are very old. How might I go about accessing the latest version of all my bookmarks, that were on the now-dead PC (or are they only backed up very infrequently)? Any information is appreciated! Thank you

Hi

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.

If the old hard drive is still healthy enough then you can build it in an enclosure that can be attached via USB to the new device, so you can access the files directly.
