An "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop is created when you reset Firefox.

You should be able to copy selected data from this folder to the current Firefox profile folder.

For the bookmarks you would need to places.sqlite file or possibly restore the bookmarks from a JSON backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.

You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
