Firefox tries to keep bookmarks when you update it. If however you use the option saying something like "delete settings" it will delete all settings and profile detail for all installed versions of firefox.
If you still have bookmarks on Internet Explorer, you could reimport them again. It is sometimes possible using recovery software to get bookmarks back that have been deleted see this thread <-- clickable link -- "I deleted by mistake bookmarks by uninstalling the previous version of Firefox beta 4.011b... Is there anyway to recover them?"
- Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer - remember to make manual backups of your bookmarks, it is easy to delete or overwrite the files
- Recover lost or missing Bookmarks - sometimes they are not totaly lost
- Import Bookmarks from Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge - in your case even if they are out of date it may be the easiest and best option to try
