I have MacBookPro with BigSur

When i restart computer all saved info (bookmarks/passwords/etc.) have been lost. What can I do to keep these saved? '

Chosen solution

Reboot again. If the problem is still there,

1) Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.

Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file.

Open the Firefox Disk Images file and drag the Firefox application to the Applications folder on your hard drive. You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the Disk Images, but instead drag it out of the DMG folder.
