I got home from work to find the battery on my computer was dead. It was in sleep mode the night before. I plugged it in, turned it on and went onto firefox, as usual. Firefox popped up as if I just installed it brand new, giving me a tour and all. I went to my bookmarks to continue my homework, and they are all completely gone!! I looked at your forums and followed all the directions on many ways to find bookmarks. I have an "old firefox data" folder on my desktop that wasn't there yesterday. And it has 2 folders in it. One seems to have been created at the time I powered up my computer and the other a while after. I tried importing the firefox data, but nothing shows up. Then I got a message telling me I have to install firefox updates, which I closed out because I know this is fake. I am just wondering what has happened here and how do I get my bookmarks back or is this some kind of virus or what? I have been using firefox for years and never had such an issue. I'm kind of freaking out because all of my homework, research and work stuff is on there. I'm also pretty sure I never had to sign in before, but I am not positive given the fact that I have been using it for years with the same bookmarks without any issues. I have also refreshed a few times, and nothing. Please, can anyone help me asap??? I have tried to upload a screenshot, but png or jpg is not working. Here are the 2 files names that came up in the Old firefox data folder: mcrhotny.default & y8fl645s.default-1476137779914. Both were created today after I turned on my computer over 2 hours ago. I have tried non-stop, but no luck.
