Please check on your Desktop for a Folder called OldFirefoxData/Profile They should be in there if was made.

Please check here for a 2nd Profile, it will be the oldest dated folder :

Your bookmarks are located in this file :

  • bookmarks and history: places.sqlite

Let us know about the above and can help you if you find them.

Please : uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files , C:\Program Files(x86) & C:\ProgramData Then restart system. Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. (Note: This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's) Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files. Note: your Firefox Profile is saved. But you should make a back up before you do :

Reinstall with Current Release Firefox 61.0.1 with a Full Version Installer
