Windows XP didn't work on my computer on 05/27/2011 and the windows XP was set-up. So, every files were lost. I had back-up for my files and restored it.

I didn't have back-up for my bookmarks pages on Mozilla browser, so I lost all my important bookmarks.

Is there any way 'to REACH, to RESTORE my bookmarks page that I lost on 05/25/2011 or 05/26/2011. if yes, appreciated and would make me more than happy.

  1. Click the Firefox button, go to Bookmarks, Show All Bookmarks.

  2. In the menu at the top, click Import & Backup.

  3. Click Restore and choose a date.

It might be a good idea to export today's Bookmarks manually. It's the same menu, but choose "Export HTML" and then save the file somewhere.

No, This answer is not for my case. I know this process. As I said, windows XP system, internet browser - Mozilla-, all of the programs were re set-up on 05/27/2011. Currently, there is only one back-up file in the library of Mozilla and it is the back-up dated 05/27/2011, after re set-up the systems and Mozilla. That means no bookmarks pages back-up that I want.

The bookmarks pages back-up that I want to reach are the back-up dated 05/25/2011 or 05/26/2011 that I lost after re set-up the systems. Back-up dated 05/25/2011 or 05/26/2011 isn't in the library of Mozilla.

How I can reach the bookmarks pages that I lost after re set-up the systems and Mozilla on 05/27/2011, and currently, are not exit in the Mozilla library as a back up dated 05/25/2011???

Many thanks

If you reinstalled the OS and didn't backup the contents of the Firefox Profile Folder then your bookmarks and other personal data are lost.
