Created new profile to fix TLS handshake issue, but lost all my bookmarks - how do I either retrieve bookmarks or revert to the old profile?

Posted

One website was getting stuck on TLS handshake. An article suggested I create a new Profile but gave no warning that I would lose my many hundreds of bookmarks built up over many years. I tried some of the suggested solutions without luck. Any help gratefully appreciated.

Chosen solution

Fixed. Opened "About: Profiles", and the restored all the profiles one by one in a new window. The last one was the one I wanted.

P.s. I clicked on the Library icon on Firefox menu bar, then Bookmarks, and Show All Bookmarks. Nothing.

I also searched for a folder that says "Old Firefox Data" on my desktop and in my C Drive - nothing coming up.
