Apple Time Machine for Recovering Lost Bookmarks Via Firefox Account Password Reset?

more options

Hi,

I lost all my bookmarks because I forgot my Firefox account password and didn't realize they were in the cloud (I thought they were stored locally). I don't have any bookmarks backups, but I did recently back up my Macbook via Time Machine. Would Time Machine be able to recover my previous bookmarks? If so, how?

Thank you.
