Bookmarks lost

more options

Hi my friends,

My PC was broken so I re-installed the OS, then re-installed the Firefox browser, reset the password and signed in to sync the bookmarks, but then I noticed all of my important bookmarks collected in the last 5+ years are lost, is that a Firefox bug? Any way to recover them? Any advice would be much appreciated.

P.S. I'm a developer and bookmarks are very important to me, but this is the second time Firefox lose my bookmarks, the first time was caused by the Firefox Android app years ago, such experience is really frustrated, looks like I might have to give up Firefox and seek for a different browser as my primary browser.

there are a few ways to regain the bm's.

but the easiest, imo, is to see if MS Edge had sneakily copied them over to it.

if you see them in MSEdge, then invoke an "import" from FF.

afterwards, once you bring your FF up to 99% perfection, per se, do a FF sync and upload that data to the FF account, which will serve as a back up. Then log out of the FF acct to keep it from constant updating/syncing/corruption.
