I have a macbook pro retina 13 (2013) and downloaded Mackeeper hoping it would clean my computer... A technician went to my computer erased all my notes in the Notes app and my firefox content: history and bookmarks, and then left without saying anything. I dont have a back up of it and don't have a firefox profile neither. How can i get those data back?? Help!!

Thanx.

ps. i later did some researchs about mackeeper and found out that is a was a scam, a very huge scam! Don't ever download it.

HI ndaaunhi, I understand that losing Firefox profile data can be very frustrating, especially when you have had the same profile for a while. Unfortunately if there is no back up of the profile, it will not be possible to recover it.

Apparently is a really bad company and they have scammed a lot of people, but no one knows who is behind all this. Eventually, i have contacted the company by phone they say they can't do anything about it but refund me. I JUST NEED MY DATA! HELP! I don't think reporting them will get back my data, plus i'll get into trouble i think.

It might not help you, but it would help protect others from them. Contact local law or FBI and file a complaint.

Look in you trash / recycle bin.


If you can't find anything, you will have to restore everything manually.


These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.

you're right but unfortunately i don't have any proves about it, i trusted them and didn't record their work or screenshot or anything, there was the chat session but they delete it themself, plus, they take monthly monet of your account without permission, omg i hope impatiently that one day they'll go to jail!!
