Hello, recently I have changed the system from Widows 7 to Windows 10. I have got a big problem, because my bookmarks disappeared. What can I do to reset them?

When you do an upgrade, there are a few different choices, and some of them may require you to dig out your old Firefox data.

Did any of your Firefox data carry over -- preferences like home page, saved passwords, etc.?

If nothing carried over, you can look for your old settings folder in another place. Can you find this folder on your system:

C:\Windows.old

If so, can you find this folder:

C:\Windows.old\Users\your-user-name

If so, your old Firefox data may well be in there. To explore further, it would be helpful to set Windows to show hidden files and folders. This article has the steps: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hidden-files

Then look for:

C:\Windows.old\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Here you may find one or more semi-randomly named folders. The one with the most recently updated contents probably is the one you want to restore from.

Bookmarks Only

Drill down into the old bookmarkbackups folder and copy the two most recent backups to a convenient location such as the desktop.

The Restore feature will replace the default Firefox bookmarks (and anything you just added since the Reset) with the older set of bookmarks. If you need to preserve newly added bookmarks, use the export feature first, before the Restore, and then the Import feature afterwards. The following articles have the details:

Success?

Complete Restoration

This post has my suggested procedure for resurrecting your entire old profile in your new installation of Firefox. Please note the use of copy instead of move throughout the process. This allows you to try again if it fails somewhere along the way.
