I restarted my computer and had previously set up firefox to save all tabs, I had a month of work saved here and it was to always open the tabs after closing the program. I also have about 50 sites book marked for my work and everything disappeared with a new version of firefox of course it said on the new landing page that I didnt lose my work or bookmarks everything is gone and I cant find them anywhere nor is there any instructions as to how I can restore it. I rolled back the computer to an earlier date and the system restore point didnt bring back the information either.--HELP

It is possible that Firefox has switched to a new profile. You can open the about:profiles page via the location/address bar to see what profiles are available and which profile Firefox currently is using. If you currently use a xxxxxxxx.default-release profile then you can switch back to the previously used xxxxxxxx.default with a possible time stamp appended in case you have used the Refresh feature to create a new profile. The about:profiles page allows to switch to the xxxxxxxx.default

Firefox 67 and later can use a dedicated profile for each of the Firefox update channels and will lock the profile, so it can only be used by Firefox in a specific installation folder. For Release versions this profile would be a xxxxxxxx.default-release profile, profiles used in older Firefox versions usually used a xxxxxxxx.default profile (a refresh adds a time stamp).
