Yesterday I reseted my pc and once I was able to get in and reinstall Firefox I did. Once signed in usually everything is there. I might have rearrange a few add-ons but its good to go but not this time. Everything was gone. My passwords, add-ons and bookmarks.

What kind of reset did you do? Did you choose to save your data?

Look for a folder called Windows.old

On Windows 10 it gave me two options one was keep my files (removes apps and settings, but keeps your personal files) the other is remove everything ( removes all personal files, apps and settings). I picked keep my files first but Firefox didn't sync correctly so I reset my pc again removing everything. Where do I search windows.old at?

Well, if you keep things, then

C:\Windows.old

has a copy of your old

C:\Users\username

folder where Firefox stores your data. But if you told Windows to remove everything... maybe not.

So apparently I backed up Firefox logins passwords and most of my bookmarks with Microsoft Edge. So I just imported them back to Firefox. Thanks to everyone who tried to help. Much obliged.
