I recently installed the Firefox 88 browser update to fix the problem that Windows would not recognize my Firefox browser in order to make it my default. Upon researching the issue, it stated that I needed to uninstall my old version of Firefox and reinstall the latest version. At the end of the installation before it completed the installation, it asked if I wanted to "Refresh" my browser. I read how it would streamline and speed up my browsing experience and it seemed like a "good" idea. I agreed to the "Refresh" and the browser finished its installation. I checked into setting Firefox as my default browser and Windows recognized it. Great, the re-installation worked.
I then proceeded to open Firefox only to realize that any custom setting, including my 15+ years of bookmarks were gone. I began to panic! I noticed that there was an "Old Firefox Data" file now on my desktop. I looked inside and realized that it contained my old data, including bookmarks, etc. I began searching online for how to get it back into my browser. I have read 7-8 tutorials and 3-4 Youtubes that supposedly fix the problem, but to no avail. Please help as I do not want to lose all my bookmarks and while not computer illiterate, cannot seem to figure out how to get them to reinstall into the new Firefox browser update.
Thank you for your help!
