Isisombululo esikhethiwe

If you lost personal data then it is possible that a new default-release profile folder has been created. See "Determine if Firefox has created a new profile":

You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.

Firefox 67 and later can use a dedicated profile for each of the Firefox update channels and will lock the profile, so it can only be used by Firefox in a specific installation folder. For Release versions this profile would be a xxxxxxxx.default-release profile, profiles used in older Firefox versions usually used a xxxxxxxx.default profile (a refresh adds a time stamp).

Hi vvwwax, let's start at the beginning.

To rule out possibly locked/inaccessible files, have you already done a normal shutdown and restart of your system (Windows PC, Mac, Linux PC)? If not, try that first.

Second, do you recall seeing any message about Firefox creating a new profile after the update? That is one of the issues discussed in this support article: Recover lost or missing Bookmarks. Please check through that list and let us know what you find or do not find.
