I go to my bookmarks, then to Import and Backup and then to Restore but the only date I cant restore it from it just today (7/6/13). So I try 'Choose File' but it doesn't show them. And I have seen it when I go to my files. There is 10 Restore points. ....I don't know what to do. I would like my bookmarks back. I didn't backup my bookmarks. But I guess it automatically did. The last one was in April.

Please immediately back up your profile and put it somewhere safe outside of Firefox and profile paths (Your Desktop will do fine).

That ensure that you preserve whatever information that you do have.

It appears that you have not previously done anything to backup bookmarks yourself. I am thinking of manual backups or syncing to a second device.

Do not blindly do bookmark backup restores as that overwrites any current files with files of speculative / no value. Before you attempt to restore any bookmarks file always make a manual backup of the current one, or you may just make the situation worse. The Windows restore points may not always be effective and if they are it is rather a sledgehammer and nut approach.

It is possible looking for previous versions of the file places.sqlite may help. That is a database file in your profile that contains the bookmarks.

The profile also contains a folder of some automatically created bookmark backups. I have already asked above that you backup the whole of this.

I am not sure what you did exactly that caused the loss of bookmarks. If you reformat a hard disk that destroys everything. If you reinstall Firefox and use any option to remove personal information again bookmarks will be lost.
