How do I setup sync from my Android device?

I can't find the option to add a new device nor the option to get your recovery key. How do I setup my desktop device from my android device on Palemoon?

You'll have to set up Sync on a desktop computer first. There's no easy way to access this data on the Android device.
First go into the Android sync account and choose to "remove account".
Then, set up your desktop with your user name and password, using the "I've lost my recovery key" instructions from the second link above.
Lastly, use the Easy Setup method to set up your Android device again, and re-link it.
