I can't get my bookmarks to sync *from* my iPhone *to* a new Mac

I used to have a Mac with Firefox perfectly synched to my Firefox Home.

I lost all the data from my Mac (including my Sync Key). Now I'm trying to sync my Firefox bookmarks from Firefox Home to a new Mac ( I'm using Firefox 5.0.1 and Firefox Home 1.1.1. ), but the Firefox Sync plugin asks for the 'sync key' of my account.

Is there a way of obtaining the 'sync key' in Firefox Home? I could not find any way of doing it.

If I regenerate a new sync key, will I lose all my bookmarks from Firefox Home (I want to avoid this)?

Unfortunately, what you are trying to achieve is not possible, due to security concerns. As you say, the only option is to create a new sync account.

Before that, you could manually save the most important bookmarks in your iPhone and include them manually.

This time, make sure that your Sync key is safely backed up. A simple option is to e-mail it to your webmail service.

I hope it helps.
