working on iMac, poof- Firefox icon disappeared from dock. Tried a couple suggestions, including restart, but all bookmarks, default settings are gone. Original (2013) Firefox still in Library/Application Support.

Note that you can try the Firefox 45 ESR version on Mac OS X 10.6 instead of the Firefox 25 version that shows in the system details.
Download a new copy of the Firefox application and save the Disk Image file to the desktop Firefox 45.5.1 ESR:
- Trash the currently installed Firefox application (open the Applications folder in the Finder and drag the Firefox application to the Trash) to do a clean reinstall
- Install the new version that you have downloaded
Your personal data like bookmarks is stored in the Firefox profile folder, so you won't lose personal data when you uninstall and reinstall or update Firefox, but make sure NOT to remove personal data when you uninstall Firefox as that will remove all Firefox profile folders and you lose your personal data.
You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:
- Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Directory:
Windows: Show Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
- ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>/
