Had a third part clean my computer and install paretologic and malwarebytes software. Had to change back my windows preferences, reboot etc.& now several days later we discover that our firefox bookmark folders are missing. The support for the above software denies they have done anything that would affect the bookmarks. Have gone through all suggestions on firefox support about this. Stumped. Way too complicated. What would corrupt that file or...is there any hope to recover 2 years of collecting articles/ research for our home business??
