Windows Update wiped my Firefox Bookmarks and Passwords etc
I need help please. My Laptop updated last night/this morning and when I logged back in it had removed the Firefox shortcut and also deleted all bookmarks/passwords/usernames etc for the last 5 years. I’ve spoken to HP but their final advice is to do a system restore but was wondering if anyone could help me get my Firefox from yesterday. I don’t believe I set up an account (bad judgement on my part).
Any help and assistance would be grateful.
I fixed it myself but thank you for taking the time to reply. NiamhRead this answer in context 0

There are two possible remedies.
1) Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there? Also, open the profile folder in your file explorer.
