After a clean install of windows 10, my saved logins and bookmarks are gone
I just formated mywindows 10 pc, installed firefox, and logged in, and usually all my bookmarks and saved logins return after i log my firefox account on, but they didnt this time, im afraid i somehow overwrote the saved data, and now im without logins and bookmarks, i have googled and have tried going to archive and restoring, and i can only see a backup from today there, im afraid thats the one i made myself - its also saying 11 items, the backup, and i had way more, anyway when i click it, nothing happens.
I tried going to the firefox profile section, there was 2 profiles, none had my back up
Thx in advance!

You can check if you have a C:\Windows.old folder with your previous personal data.
Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles) in the hidden "AppData\Roaming" location.

Thx for replying, much appreciated.
It was a clean install done with an usb stick, so i dont think it saves any folders from the previous install.
Oh well, live and learn i guess, still my fav browser of all.
