My computer crashed and I had to reset Windows 10. Files were maintained but apps were lost.

I did not know the "recovery key" (I had password but this additional key is required too - wtf?!!$) of my Firefox account and LOST ALL OF MY BOOKMARKS!!! This was years of research on specific subjects.

Is anyone aware of a way to recover these bookmarks? Your help is most appreciated!!!

Normally after I restart my computer everything in Firefox works just fine. I have the "restore last session" turned on and it will load my last session. But the last two times I've restarted my computer I have to resign into my Mozilla account, "restore previous session" is not an option, I have to reinstall my add-ins. It fortunately still has my history but it's a super big hassle as I keep browser tabs open to remember things.

I'm on a 2020 MacBook Pro running version 10.15.7 and I'm using Firefox version 80.0.1.

Short Story:

So basically I am a fool....I just screwed myself and told Firefox to go ahead and delete my entire Desktop folder that is now unfortunately unrecoverable.... I think? Is there hope?

Long Story: So for the past few days I've been noticing that the audio from any video that I play on Youtube and other websites keeps getting cut off. My temporary fix was to hit refresh but rewinding and pausing and resuming the videos also worked. I thought it was either a Windows update (am using Windows 10 Pro) or something was wrong with the audio hardware/software on my computer.

Lo and behold, it was actually Firefox because the audio was fine on both Chrome and on Microsoft Edge. Decided to do a quick Google search for a solution and someone suggested to create a new profile using about:profiles in the url. So I did, and being the fool that I am, I went ahead and decided the location of the new profile to be on my Desktop. So I opened Firefox with the new profile and it fixed the issue. The audio on every video that I played was finally working as it should. But then I decided to go back to the old profile to see if the audio was still working and it was for some strange unknown reason, so I went ahead and deleted the new profile I created and I also accidentally deleted all the files and folders that was on my Desktop..... It even gave me a warning that I chose to ignore, silly me.

I did not know that Firefox was capable of bypassing the Recycle Bin and deleting files on hard drives, this is shocking!

I used the Easeus Data Recovery Wizard and it did not find anything except for old files that were already deleted a long time ago. I even checked the Recycle Bin to no avail.

Thanks for any help but I feel I am at a lost.....

I rebooted my computer after it crashed, due to what appeared to be a hard drive error (at first when I restarted the computer I got the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed)". Once I managed to get the PC started again I opened Firefox and found out that all of my saved passwords were gone as well as nearly all of my browsing history, which goes back over a year. Strangely enough, not everything is deleted - there are still several webpages that I visited in the past that still show up in the browser history, especially from the last few months. Not only that, but when I scroll through list of web results, webpages that I previously visited are still highlighted in purple, even though many of them do not show up in the much reduced browser history. Does this mean that the remainder of the browsing history is still somewhere? The Firefox profile is the same one as before the crash.

Thank you!

My places.sqlite file has places.sqlite.corrupt just under it in my second profile's folder. I tried renaming the corrupt file as just places.sqlite (calling the first places.sqlite something else) and restarting as suggested but the history still won't show up, and when I check the folder, places.sqlite is once again places.sqlite.corrupt (with a places.sqlite file just above it.)

Is there a way to somehow get Quantum to read my old history?

The upgrade wiped out everything. In searching for bookmarks to restore, I find I have several profiles. I want to RESTORE the BMs from ALL of these profiles. I understand that each "restore" replaces all bookmarks, so how does one CONSOLIDATE all of these profiles' bookmarks into one place?

I'm badly confused and extremely panicky about doing something that will actually wipe out the bookmarks backup!!
