Firefox Developer prompted me to reset to default as I hadn't used it for a while. I did so but found that regular Firefox had also been affected by the reset. I've lost all profile settings and years of bookmarks.

The old profile folder on my desktop is only Firefox Developer data. My everyday Firefox is VERY broken!

Any possible way of restoring this everyday Firefox data?

Thanks heaps PkShadow, digging into the profile directories showed that my old bookmarks were hidden away in a folder. I was able to restore them with the Bookmarks Manager.

Definitely recommend https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data for anyone with the same issue.
