Firefox updated and reset everything

more options

I can't find a Firefox old folder as mentioned in other places.

- I had to login to make a profile. I am hoping all my stuff isn't missing from my laptop yet maybe I can salvage this. -All my bookmarks are gone. -All my saved passwords are gone. -All my add-ons are gone.

You all need to warn us before you shove an update down our throats that resets the entire browser.

Thanks for the reply, but there are no old profiles I see in about:profiles. I think it has something to do with the new release and changing up the system they had in place. My laptop still has most of my passwords so I can recover some of them from there.
