I had to install Firefox again. It's telling me my previous bookmarks are saved somewhere. Does anyone know where?

Posted

Firefox has not loaded a website in over 2 days on my laptop. The wifi was not the problem as Explorer worked just fine. I decided to install Firefox again. I didn't delete anything....just installed it. I got all sorts of messages about that it saved the 'old Firefox', but I can't seem to find where it moved my 'old' bookmarks to. There is no 'old Firefox' folder on the desktop as I read about elsewhere, and they're not listed in the 'new' Firefox bookmark section. I need to know where these are stored. Once I get them saved, I think I'll be done with Firefox. Too much frustration over the last 10 years, and this last little incident hasn't helped any. Thanks if anyone can help.
