Find my old bookmarks

Kuphostiwe

I have had lots of problems with my pc and this morning when I was trying to get it started I was offered a "Refresh your Pc"option which I did, My Mozilla Firefox browser seems to have disappeared since then since then and I was offered to open a Firefox account which I did thinking that would get my bookmarks(or Favourites) back but it hasn't. I think this new account does not recognise me. I don't have any bookmarks or favourites on any other browser. Is it possible to retrieve my oroginal Mozilla Firefox account which has got dozens of Bookmarks on it for me ? Thank you.

Impendulo Ewusizo

Hi Pibear1, did you have a Firefox Account and Sync set up before? If it's a brand new account, it's not going to have your old data.

Did your Windows 8 Refresh create this folder:

C:\Windows.old

If you see that folder, before exploring further, please turn on viewing of hidden files and folders:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14201/windows-show-hidden-files

Then try to find:

C:\Windows.old\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Do you have anything there?

Note: when experimenting, always copy/paste and don't move the old files.

Check each folder under Profiles, and inside that folder, look in the bookmarkbackups folder. Can you find any files with recent dates in the names?

If you find a fresh backup, this article describes how to restore it: Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer.

I didn't have an account beore now although I was using Mozilla. I have looked everywhere and it seems I have lost the bookmarks so I will gradually add them back in. Thanks very much for your assistance.

Thanks so much for all your help.I have taken a note of your suggestions for future reference. As it so happens that pc is completely Kaput now.I'm told it needs a new hard drive so I have bought a new one and I am adding my Bookmarks gradually. I had way too many anyway and they needed a good clear out.
