Help! My Dell Windows 11 laptop got stuck in a bit locker/advanced repair loop, and I had to reset my laptop. Told the laptop to keep my files. However, I’ve lost my tabs I had open, and no history. Tried to find previous Firefox profiles, with no luck. Any other advice? Or is it all lost

Check the Windows.old folder: When you reset your laptop and chose to keep your files, Windows may have created a Windows.old folder that contains some of your old files, including your Firefox profile. You can try navigating to this folder to see if you can find your old Firefox data.
