Did you have Firefox remove all your personal data and settings when you uninstalled it? If so, Unfortunately there isn't anything that can be done. You can try to read Recover lost or missing Bookmarks though.

Also, make sure you update to Firefox 15.0.1. Update Firefox to the latest release

Many users have reported they were able to recover their bookmarks using a file undelete utility like Recuva.

Look for the places.sqlite file.

You may have more luck with recovering one of the JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder with Recuva.

Thanks and I have downloaded the Recuva software but I still cant find the old bookmarks on the file list.

My situation is before I upgraded the firefox, I didnt back up the old bookmarks. Can Recuva recover it? Thanks.
