Unwittingly, I uninstaled Firefox from my lap top. Now I would like to retrieve my bookmarks, read list, settings, etc. Do I still have my emailI address? I am so mad at myself. Is their any way to reverse this big mistake. Is my stuff saved anywhere? Help!!!

It depends on how you uninstalled Firefox. When you uninstall Firefox there is an option to "Remove my Firefox personal data", if you did not select that option, your user data (profile folder) should still be intact.

If you re-install Firefox, it checks for existing user profile, and if it finds a profile it will use it, along with your old data.

You can manually check to see if the profile folder still exists, for details of its location see Profile folder - Firefox - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
