Bookmarks are gone

more options

I will start by saying that I have not opened my laptop since March of 2022. It is now November. I go to my Firefox browser like I always have in the past. It opens and does an update. It comes back and I notice that my bookmarks bar is gone. I go to the bookmarks tab and all of my bookmarks are gone. I have never had a "Firefox Profile" before until now. I had to create one to try to get help. How can I get those bookmarks back? I tried to use the troubleshooting option that is listed and it did not work for me. I have a very important account that was in my bookmarks that I need access to. Someone HELP?!

Did Firefox suggest a Tune-Up (a refresh) or mention that it needed to create a new profile?

If so, tell us that and ignore the rest of this.

If you haven't already, could you close out of Firefox and do a normal Windows shutdown and restart to complete any pending updates and release any file locks.

If Firefox again starts up without your data, could you check whether your stuff is available in a different profile, as follows:

Profile Manager Page

Inside Firefox, type or paste about:profiles in the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it.

This page should list at least one profile and could list many. (Each profile has two folders and one or more buttons. Do not use any Remove buttons!)

The profile that Firefox is currently using will have this:

This is the profile in use and it cannot be deleted.

Do you have any other profile(s) listed on this page? If so, you can check whether it is the one you were using recently by clicking its Launch profile in new browser button.

If it isn't what you want, simply close that new window.

If it IS what you want, back on the about:profiles page, click the Set as default profile button for that profile so Firefox uses it automatically at the next startup.

Any progress so far?

By the way, a Firefox Account -- which you used to sign in to this site -- is a service that can be used with one or more Firefox profiles. A profile is a separate settings folder, similar to a person in Chrome or an identity in IE, if you ever used one of those.
