Sorry to hear. See if there is a Folder on the Desk Top called OldFirefoxProfile yes, is ok, no well we are working on it with you.

Once recover please check by going to the Firefox 3 Bar Menu --> Options --> Privacy & Security panel and under Permissions check (put a tick in the box) the setting to Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser.

If excessive then do below and monitor and change if need to...Test and go up again , go back down, it will eventually get a zone you and it can live with. (Note : Hardware Acceleration id for your Video Card, Monitor for video issues after and turn back on if need be. Update Video Card Drivers)

Go to the 3 Bar Menu then Options --> General --> Performance and untick everything. change the recommended size lower then see how it runs. Note: 1 = No Multiprocessor = slow again. Try 2 Restart Firefox after making these changes please.

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.

I solve my problem with this FF stuff ! My advice people , Downgrade FF to 56 version 32bit or 64 bit depend of your system , go to file hippo , best free base of older software. Take from another your computer bookmarks trough FF tools trough Bookmarks>show all bookmarks>import and backup>export to html ...then save on USB memory Password save with Passsword Expert addeon from FF store to USB memory also and that is that ! Load from usb memory in revers process. Stay away from FF 57.0.3 it will make only trouble and non working addeon !

Are you by any chance using the RoboForm Password Manager extension  ?

If so : would you disable it and see if that will make a difference  ?

Yes, with older version I upload newer bookmarks (after solving problem) look like all older bookmarks have some corrupted problem, save one for try to found error later (made 1 day before error). After 56 version update FF stop to support some adeon what I use and with this error definitely will stay with 56 .

No last year I only use FF sync option, think that there product will work best with there browser across all platform but look like made mistake. Before that I use Xmark Bookmark Sync and it's work ok until don't know when Mozila stop to support it and think that Xmarks don't have Android apk. It's stupid to FF don't have option to save passwords to some other type file or just export in any form to make safe if something like this happen.

P.S. For import password from other sync PC I use Password Exporter but you know that FF57 not support him, so that is one more reason to stay with FF56

After downloading Firefox Quantum, I had to sign in to FF Sync to get back all my Settings. That's all that was needed, and it's all good now.

What are you seeing when you Sign In to Sync?

If you lost both your passwords and bookmarks, it sounds like Firefox created a new user profile. In some cases, the old profile is still there, and it was just an issue of the new version finding it.

Go to Help > Troubleshooting Information, then click on Open Folder. That will open Windows Explorer in your Firefox profile.

Then go up one level. Are there any other folders listed? If so, you can grab the data you need using the instructions in the following article: Recovering important data from an old profile

Yes, after FF do selfupdate (even that I prevent it, give only permission to notify me) he ask me to sign in to my sync account. That be strange because after I do update to 57.0.1 don't remember that quest but hey ok, it's just routine, everything will be ok, I sign in and hmm, can't login to G, FB, anything... look at saved logins in security setings of FF and only one is there : chrome://FirefoxAccounts for user : sfdjsrjrlejd...something like that .. so I wait and wait, and nothing happen . Try to on support page found some troubleshot but nothing, try to go bookmark revert trough Import and Backup in FF, I lost all bookmark. Look like all last 15 saved bookmark is corrupted. That is detailed description of my problem. Now have problem with mobile mozila , android platform, think because use FF56 not allow me to pin up site to my favorite page, strange that after that fail on mobile Mozila for android favorite page and bookmark from it also dispirited.
