When I did the Firefox Refresh it cleared my entire browser history, bookmarks, logins, passwords, etc...how do I get these back and why would Mozilla create such an insidious button?

To restore this data:

On the desktop you should see a folder called 'Old Firefox Data' open it and copy all the data by highlighting and selecting everything in that folder, then right click and select copy. Now open FIrefox. Head on over to about:profiles by typing it in your URL bar. Click on the Open Folder button under the Local Directory, not root. Then right click when inside the new profile folder and select paste. Then restart Firefox. You should now have all your previous bookmarks, and data back.

If this solved your problem, mark as solution.

Why does your refresh instructions say that it will save the passwords when people have to go through these gyrations to get them back? In the future, please be upfront so us users know what's going on.
