I refreshed my firefox browser and lost my bookmarks

Posted

I was receiving a message at the bottom of my browser suggesting that I refresh Firefox because it was operating slowly. I did so and lost hundreds of bookmarks which I would like to get back. I don't appear to have a file that contains the old bookmarks.

Question: Where you informed of what happens during a refresh?


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox?
