Hello I had a Problem where i couldnt login to my Google Account, i tried pretty much everything until i reinstalled Firefox. The reinstall finally worked... But i forgot to save my Bookmarks and now they're gone... are they still somewhere saved so i can get them back?

Greetings and thanks in advance Martin

When you reinstalled Firefox, it likely created a new blank profile for you. However, your old one is probably still on the computer.

To find it, you can go to the about:profiles page in Firefox and you will probably see an additional profile listed. Once you find which one has the bookmarks, you can set it as the default so that Firefox uses that one from now on.

The full steps can be found in the Recover lost or missing Bookmarks article.

Hope this helps.
