After Firefox latest update and MS 1803 update to windows 10 both on Sat. 09 06 18, my firefox data has disappeared completely. Looks like a completely new install. Is there a way to recover some of it . Log-ins/passwords are the most important and bookmarks would be good, anything else I can adapt.. Would a system restore do any good or is there a simple way to revert to a prevoius version of FF. I stress (simple) as I am a basic user. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks .....................

Hi Fred, Thanks for responding. There is no folder on my desktop so I will check out the links provided. would a system restore solve anything, as I had done one prior to the update. Thanks, Micek

Odd, I did a 1803 update and my FF had no issues when I used it again. But this was when I reimaged back to the last working image I made with Acronis and then I did a update of all software including 1803 and everything worked without a hitch.
