Unless you have a backup of your Firefox profile, it will not be possible to recover that data.

You can look a utility to browse System Restore points to see if you can locate older copies of involved files.

  • favicons: favicons.sqlite
  • bookmark backups: compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder
  • cookies.sqlite for the Cookies
