Recently I have been having issues with my laptop. So, I decided to set my Windows 10 laptop back to factory settings. After the successful factory settings, I downloaded the latest version of Firefox and tried logging into my Firefox account. For some odd reason, it wouldn't recognize my login username and password. So, I tried to reset my password. After resetting my password, I managed to log into my Firefox account but all my bookmarks disappeared. I tried to restore but all I see is today's date and no other previous restore (see screenshot).

I am extremely exhausted trying to figure out a way to get back my bookmarks as it has many years of bookmarks that I need to use back.

I would appreciate any help on this matter.

Did you save your data, or was that removed?

. . . and tried logging into my Firefox account

Resetting the sync password, or changing its e-mail, will remove all data from the servers.

This is a security feature. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ive-lost-my-firefox-sync-account-information

Are you talking about sync?

Yes, I am talking about sync. That means by resetting the password, I lost all of my all data from the servers. Right??

As you said that you have reset your laptop in factory mode, all the applications, programs and user data stored on the computer are deleted. So, unless you saved/backup your bookmark file externally there isn't a way to get back your bookmarks.
