Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

2 hours ago I got on Firefox and everything was fine. Now when I got on 2 pages loaded, the 1st saying "Welcome to Firefox for Yahoo Users", the 2nd looks like a Firefox/Yahoo Start Page. All of my info is gone - my bookmarks, my bookmark toolbar, my passwords, my home page & even my search engine was changed from Google to Yahoo. Everything that I had personalized & saved is gone. What happened & how can I get it all back?

Beyond weird, I got up this morning and my Firefox is completely back to normal. The only thing not there is the bookmark I made for this forum when it was all messed up yesterday. Still have not idea what happened, but so glad its all back . . . on my way to make a backup in case this happens again and it doesn't all come back!

2 days ago I got on Firefox and all I saw was a Yahoo page. All of my info is gone - my bookmarks, my bookmark toolbar, my passwords, my home page & even my search engine was changed from Google to Yahoo. Everything that I had personalized & saved is gone. I already reinstalled Firefox but again only a Yahoo page opens. What happened & how can I get it all back?
