Lost Settings and History After Unpinning and Repinning Firefox on Windows Taskbar
I unpinned Firefox from my taskbar, created a shortcut on the desktop, and repinned it to the taskbar. Now all my settings (appearance theme, toolbar customization, new tab settings) and even my browsing history are gone. I did a search and found Firefox in 2 locations on my PC, but opening either of them gives the same result: wiped settings and only showing history since I unpinned and repinned.

Hi, I would say they are lost.
The correct way to make a shortcut would have been go to C:\Programs Files and then find firefox.exe and create a short cut then cut and paste it to the Desktop. For other programs pinned do the same if going to.
Since you seem to know where to find the Profiles please check the dates on these :
- bookmarks and history: places.sqlite
- permissions.sqlite for Permissions and possibly content-prefs.sqlite for other website specific data (Site Preferences)
If all the same as the folders then they are gone.
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
