My laptop updated to Quantum and I want to go back so I can get my bookmarks back. How do I do this.
My Firefox was going slow and asked me if I wanted to speed it up. I said yes and Ive got Quantum and NO bookmarks. Ive looked in the profile and I dont have a duplicate and looked in backup and there are no bookmarks. If I go back to the original Firefox will this give me back my bookmarks and if so, how can I go back. I tried a system restore for a few days ago but it hasnt taken me away from Quantum (which may have been the version Ive been on for a while but I dont know when)!!! Please can someone help.

Hi, it is possible to find your bookmarks by following the following tutorial http://mzl.la/1BAQGUu

Restore Bookmark Backups
Firefox automatically makes backups of the bookmarks. These are stored in the bookmarkbackups folder.
Open the Bookmarks Manager; Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar, and select Bookmarks. Hot key is <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> B.
Once the window is open, at the top of the page, press the button labeled Import and Backup. Select Restore. From the list, pick the file you want and click it.
The backups are stored in a jsonlz4 file named something like this; bookmarks-2016-06-29_1424_enD1GTH ya0JmicnYWg4V4g==.jsonlz4
In this example; 2016-06-29 = date created, 1424 = number of entries.
