After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.
How do I get them ALL back?
I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016
The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.
I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.
I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

"right-click: Properties -> Previous Versions"
Rt click where?
As there are no more responses to my question, I take it that there is no solution.
Next question, How do I prevent this from happening again (other than daily backups)?
"right-click: Properties -> Previous Versions" Rt click where?
You need to right-click places.sqlite in Windows Explorer.
You can check in Windows Explorer if there is a previous version of the places.sqlite file available or files in the bookmarkbackups folder.
You either need an older copy of places.sqlite or a backup in the bookmarkbackups folder.
Alternatively you can look at this utility to browse System Restore points.
