All my bookmarks are gone! Please help!
I'm Not sure what happened, my laptop updated last night and suddenly all my bookmarks for school and school assignments are GONE! I also now have a folder on my desktop from today(4/21/21)labeled "old firefox data" but it's pretty much empty besides amazon & booking.com which I've never used..
How can I restore all my previous settings? I have SOOO many research links for papers, school based sites, bibliography references, etc not to mention things like discord and other sites to connect with classmates(I'm a ft online college student!) In those bookmarks.
Thanks in advanced!

You need two files from the old profile (that's the one you have on your desktop): places.sqlite and favicons sqlite: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile If your update source nukes your profile, I suggest you backup your profile or at least your bookmarks. You can use Firefox for the latter. ctl+shft+o > Import and Backup > Backup | Export Bookmarks to HTML.
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.
