use recovery key after forget & reset password
I forget my account password so i reset the password. Then i accidentally skip the recovery key to reset option so my whole data in sync is not shown. But i have a recovery key. How to restore my data?

Any data you have on the server that had not already been synced to another copy of Firefox will have been erased when you reset your password.
Thanks for the reply. I have a recovery code of before i reset. Any use with that to restore password?
Yes, this article should help with this:
Since you already have reset the password, you can no longer use that old recovery key as the reset has invalidated it and the password reset has purged your data on the server, so you won't be able to restore your previous personal data from the Sync server by using that old recovery key. You will also have to generate a new recovery key in case you would want to use this recover feature in the future.
