My bookmarks were gone after I went in task manager and ended my firefox task. Restarting it didn't work. There are no back ups. What do I do?

I had went into the task manager and accidentally deleted the firefox task the was going. When I went back on firefox, all my bookmarks were gone. I tried restarting it, without any luck. I tried getting the backups, to find I had none. Nothing has worked for me. Thought originally I was trying to get google chrome on my computer, only for that not to work, so I'm not sure if that may have messed it up or not. Please help me.

Problems with bookmarks and history not working properly can be caused by a corrupted places.sqlite database file.

You can check for problems with the places.sqlite database file in the Firefox Profile Folder.
