Firefox updated and now all my bookmarks, passwords & history are gone - how do I get them back?

Posted

When I turned on my computer - firefox went into refresh. I didn't press anything - refresh just started all by itself. When it finished my desktop was gone. All my bookmarks, passwords, history - GONE. Like I'd downloaded a brand new copy of FF and had never used it before. Now how the hell do I get it all back??

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; '''Old Firefox?''' Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible
