Firefox makes an automatic backup of all the bookmarks each day, so you can recover bookmarks from a previous date.

If you have accidentally removed bookmarks then use "Organize > Undo" in the bookmarks manager (Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks) to get them back. That only works if you haven't closed Firefox. Otherwise you need to restore the bookmarks from a JSON backup.

alexandra petkova,

You should have started a new thread as your problem has nothing to do with what was being discussed.

Hit the Alt key to show the Menu bar, then open View > Toolbars and select Menu bar, so it has a check-mark.

I had a virus and when the computer tech worked on my computer, he deleted prior Mozilla Firefox Version and installed new. I did not even think about my bookmarks. He also deleted Recycle Bin. Is there anyway to get these bookmarks back?
