Only if they were backed up or copied somewhere.

Check the instructions of what restored your computer. Sometimes they save old data someplace.

Before doing something as this, one should backup everything that should be saved. Like an external hard drive or web service.

If you were using Firefox Sync, you might have been able to recover your bookmarks via Sync. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/access-mozilla-services-firefox-accounts
