Firefox went from being accessible to displaying a notice saying that I did not have the appropriate permissions to access the shortcut. I restarted my computer and it did not change. I reinstalled Firefox and lost years worth of bookmarks. Are they gone for real? Wtf happened?

Sometimes when the browser thinks there is a problem with the profile, it will create a new one.
Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there? Also, open the profile folder in your file explorer.
