Reset how do I get my bookmarks back?

Posted

Hi

I was having issues and it turned out that my system date and time were wrong (don't I feel the fool, thanks all who helped). Anyway did loads of things to try and fix issue including a reset. Is there anyway I can recover, transfer, whatever the correct term maybe, my bookmarks from the old firefox data folder back to my browser?

Thanks

Whenever you RESET the firefox, Firefox takes a backup of your profile (including bookmarks, history etc..) *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles#w_restoring-a-profile-backup

If you reset Firefox then a new profile is created and some of your data (bookmarks, history, cookies, passwords, form data) is automatically imported and your current profile will be moved to the desktop (Old Firefox Data). You will lose extensions and other customizations (toolbars, prefs) that you've made.
