Recently I was cleaning some malware/viruses/spyware/worms and all other nasty files located on hard drive of computer. Actually I still have them but this is NOT the purpose of my message. The problem is that I lost everything in Firefox. All my bookmarks that I cannot live without are gone. ALL. Each and every bookmark is gone. Saved passwords are gone. Addons are gone. Online banking certificate is gone. Also when I click CTRL T to add new tab in same window I get extremely annoying squares (3 lines and each line with 5 squares) which are graphically showing websites I have visited. Please if someone could help me to get everything back, particularly bookmarks are extremely important.
I tried to do three possible tasks but neither of them worked.
Usage of about:<wbr>profiles command in address bar but it is reporting error message saying The address isn't valid.
TASK TWO (consisting of multiple steps):
step 1: finding old firefox profiles I could manage to find. I hope they are NOT all otherwise I am in huge trouble. Hopefully something was overlooked and you will see why in upcoming steps.
step 2: clicking Open menu icon on the left hand side of firefox consisting of three horizontal lines and click Open Help Menu icon and then click Troubleshooting Information
step 3: clicking about:profiles in section Application Basics. Here I then added every single profile I am aware of via button Create A New Profile
step 4: for each of profile I got listed, I clicked on Launch profile in new browser and my bookmarks, together with other settings (online banking certificate, saved passwords, addons,...) were NOT ( !!! ) there. In neither of profile. I pray that I overlooked some saved profile...
Bookmarks menu\Show All Bookmarks\Import And Backup\Restore. However, In this submenu Restore there is nothing to be restored.
Someone please help me as I really need to get, particularly but not only bookmarks, back.
Waiting extremely anxiously for your reply...
Thank you in advance a billion times!

I came looking for info / status on addons like Show Parent Folder or Go Parent Folder, when I saw the recent post on this forum, with slow workaround: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879
Q: Do any other addons exist, updated for Fx 57, that instantly show the parent folder of bookmarks in a bookmarks manager search results?
The workaround in forum question 1161879 is OK for 1 bookmark, once in a while. I need this on a regular basis. Anyone that's collected bookmarks for a couple of decades, has similar-topic bookmarks scattered in different folders (not duplicates).
Imagine a file manager with search function that finds file names, but doesn't show where they're located. :D Fairly regularly, similar-topic bookmarks need to be located and moved to one folder.
For everyone "bugged" by lack of this feature, the request / bug on bugzilla won't help immediately (it was filed 15 yrs ago!). It's gotten some recent attention. This and similar bugs probably need more votes (need a bugzilla acct) vs. more comments, at this point. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196509 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=469421
Now that addons providing this feature have gone away, maybe if lots of users voted for it to be fixed, developers would make a change.
On a much larger scale than one bookmarks feature, if Firefox was losing users to Chrome before, what does Mozilla think will happen when many addons & plugins suddenly go away?

What I would like to be able to do seems simple to me, but I cannot find the option to do it.
Basically when I click the Star icon to create a bookmark, a menu pops up with the name, folder, and tags.
The default folder location is always set to "Other Bookmarks" I would like a way to change this default location to "Bookmarks Menu"
this would save me time creating bookmarks, because I never use "Other Bookmarks", I only use "Bookmarks Menu" and folders that I have personally created to organize my bookmarks. so every single time i create a bookmark I have extra step involved of opening the folder drop down selector and picking "Bookmarks Menu" instead of "Other Bookmarks"
I use bookmarks a LOT, as I am sure many people do, and I am now exclusively using Firefox, I used to use Google Chrome. This is a feature I really want badly, is there an advanced settings or expert options dialog or config that I can open to change this behavior?
