How to restore bookmarks and saved passwords?
I purchased a new laptop and installed new OS. I logged in with my account in firefox for my saved bookmarks and password but not a single one is showing.
Also, i took backup of all my previous C: drive files to my HDD. Is there a way i can restore the data from Firfox folder?
