Accidentally deleted my Firefox data through the uninstallation of Firefox UX browser. Is it possible for me to recover the data?

Posted

I chose to delete the Firefox UX's data when I uninstalled it and forgot that it shares the same profile and data with the current Firefox.

How is it possible to recover my data, maybe with a files recovery software like Recuva or something?

Hello,

It may be possible.

Good luck. I hope that helps.

Hello, It may be possible. * Have you synced your profile data to any other machine using Firefox Sync? If so you may be able to sync it back by specifying 'replace this machine's data with the sync data' when you set up sync. * You may still have automatic backups of your bookmarks which can be restored. See here: [[Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer]] * If none of this works then try Recuva. Point it at the folder where all the profile folders are stored. See here: [[Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data]]. If Recuva can recover the files in your old profile then you can use the Firefox profile manager to point Firefox at the recovered Profile. See here: [[Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles]] Good luck. I hope that helps.
