I turned on my computer like any other normal day this morning, except when I launched firefox it was like it was freshly installed, all my passwords, usernames, cookies, saved bookmarks, work related history material is all GONE it's like I just installed firefox for the first time. A lot of these passwords I dont know off the top of my head so I'm going to have to ask my business partners for ALL the passwords... Why did firefox do this? What is the problem??

Sorry to hear about that, it's not normal or expected.

If you haven't already, could you close out of Firefox and do a normal Windows shutdown and restart to complete any pending updates and release any file locks.

If Firefox again starts up without your data, could you check whether your stuff is available in a different profile, as follows:

Profile Manager Page

Inside Firefox, type or paste about:profiles in the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it.

This page should list at least one profile and could list many. (Each profile has two folders and one or more buttons. Do not use any Remove buttons!)

The profile that Firefox is currently using will have this:

This is the profile in use and it cannot be deleted.

Do you have any other profile(s) listed on this page? If so, you can check whether it is the one you were using recently by clicking its Launch profile in new browser button.

If it isn't what you want, simply close that new window.

If it IS what you want, back on the about:profiles page, click the Set as default profile button for that profile so Firefox uses it automatically at the next startup.

Any progress so far?
