Can't Retrieve Bookmarks after latest update - 76

Hello. I can't find my bookmarks after update 76. I followed the directions, and I ouldn't find anything. I searched my computer and all my drives for json files and 'bookmarks', and I found backups from 2001, 2013, and I know I have backups 'older' than those on discs, but the ones missing (so far) are the most important and complete ones from the past 7 years. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but update 76 'seems' to necessitate syncing devices. I only have reason to browse on my desktop, so I didn't plan on syncing it with anything. I 'do' have a smartphone, but other than downloading malwarebytes and one other app, that I need, that's the extent of my 'online' activities on the phone. However, since I couldn't find my bookmarks without doing so, I decided to download Firefox onto my phone and try to sync them up. When I signed up for the Firefox account earlier, I changed my password with a password generator. However, my phone doesn't have all the characters on its keyboard that are in my password. You can customize the keyboard, but it looked like a magnificent pain to do so. Instead, it seemed easier to 'dumb down' my password from 40 characters down to around the minimum, at least until I got them synced. However, I tried twice with typing visible on the phone and it said the password was wrong, so instead of trying a third time, and getting locked out of Firefox - I came here to see if anyone could help me. I know that rebooting often corrects a lot of things, but since I don't have these bookmarks backed up anywhere - I was afraid this might be a case where it may make the bookmarks more difficult or impossible to retrieve. Thanks in advance.

Hello again,

I've found the bookmarks, and since I see one other person had the same problem, I'll share here where I found mine. Look in:

C:\Users\"Your username"\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

There were 2 folders in 'Profiles', each with long names. I went into each folder and looked at the 'bookmarks' folder in each one. Each bookmarks folder had at least one json file. One of them had one file for the bookmarks that were created today, and the other one had several backup json files, including the ones I was missing. I selected the most recent of those saves to import and they're all back.

FYI - I did 'not' have to sync my Firefox accounts to retrieve my bookmarks.
