My Microsoft Office would not update properly and my build (1803 or 1809?) kept getting a message about "End of Service, no longer supported and I needed to install update). I worked with a Microsoft Tech for two days and she was unable to get the update to complete successfully. The final step was to try do a Windows "Recovery" and run the "Reset this PC".
A message stated apps would be deleted but it also stated it would keep my "personal files".
Ultimately, the "Recover" and "Reset this PC" worked and I was finally able to update my Windows to build 1909. However, in the process it appears to have deleted Firefox and all my login data, websites, bookmarks, favorites and passwords.
Once again i worked with a Windows tech to see if we could get Firefox data back but the "Window.old" doesn't appear to have kept any Firefox data as every account "Administrator", "User", "My Name", Visitor and Default either have no Firefox folder, contains no files in the Firefox folder, or has a file with today's and is only a few kb's in size. Also, the Firefox "Import and Backup" feature doesn't have any files saved except one that is dated today has 11 items and is 1kb.
The Windows tech stated I may be able to contact Firefox and gain access to my information using my login, email, phone number type credentials to verify my identity.
As anyone reading this can understand I'm lost without this data. I have close to seven years worth of passwords, bookmarks and folders saved in that Firefox. I literally can't login to anything because not only do I not know the passwords but I don't know any of the login names either. This means resetting an account or password on a majority of my websites like banking, medical, etc...is virtually impossible.
Thanks in advance for anyone reading this and I hope what I'm asking makes sense.
Basically, I'm just hoping my information may be saved on the Firefox side a cloud server or something and I'm hopefully able to gain access to it talking to the community or Firefox tech support?
I do have access to my email on my phone but I can't see or reset the password on it either because it asks me to enter my email password in order to get to the area that allows me to reset the password.
