Bookmarks disappeared over night

more options

Looks like I was updated to version 70 of the browser. Now I have no bookmarks, no saved passwords, I have NOTHING from the previous version.

How do I get them back.

Chosen solution

It's likely that if you go to the about:profiles page, you probably have a new fresh profile that's been set as the default. If you change the default back to your old profile, it should help.

See the bottom of the Recover lost or missing Bookmarks page for more information.

Hope this helps.

If you lost personal data then it is possible that a new default-release profile folder has been created. See "Determine if Firefox has created a new profile":

You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.

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).

That fixed it immediately. Thank you.
