Firefox deleted a bunch of my stuff- customization, bookmarks, settings, add ons and most importantly history and cookies, annihilating my browser game save which I had for over a year.

It did so without my knowledge or permission, and I want to know why that happened, and why can't I recover the most important stuff- my history and save from the game.

I copy and pasted all the files inside "old firefox data" folder and it brought back my bookmarks and add ons, but it did not recover my settings and history.

Putting everything back to how it should be will take me ages, and I won't be able to find some important websites I usually would access by history.

So, can someone tell me, why firefox just did that without my permission or even knowledge? And if there is a way to bring my stuff back, because I'm really not in the mood of setting up the whole browser after I've already done so when I decided to switch to it.

Thank you for any help.

Hoping to shoehorn-in a backup of my bookmarks; new laptop, new everything

Some background first: To start with, I don't do clouds or file sharing, and almost no social media. I used to do bimonthly backups (to any of three external hard drives) until my wife died four years ago. Never thought about it again until very late December. Decided I'd do it on January 1. Hard drive crashed on December 29, on an older laptop running Windows 10. Paid an obscene amount of money for the (successful) data recovery effort, and have it all on an external hard drive. That older laptop had other (physical) problems as well, so I bought a new one running Windows 11 while the data recovery effort was going on. I've been using Firefox exclusively for 20 years, I imagine, and I've got hundreds of bookmarks. (I tend to do a lot of research.)

Current issue: When I installed Firefox on the new laptop, it wanted to import bookmarks, but of course, they weren't available. Got the recovery drive back. Researched... located the folders that Mozilla says contains the bookmarks. Stopped Firefox. ...AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles Renamed the folders therein. Copied the similarly named folders from the recovery drive to this location. (Names and/or extensions were similar, but not exact.) Fired up Firefox. Deep sigh. It didn't work. Stopped Firefox again. Renamed the file extensions. Fired up Firefox again. Back up and running again, your witness, I'm writing this.

So, it's not a matter of simple file substitution. Is there another way to recover bookmarks from a file?

I am experimenting with changing from Microsoft Edge to Firefox. However, a couple of bookmarks that have favicons in Microsoft Edge do not appear to work in Firefox. Attached is a .gif showing me trying to add https://app.powerbi.com to the bookmark bar. You can see that there is an icon on the tab, along with an icon that appears when trying to drag to the bookmark bar. However, when it gets to the bookmark bar, it goes back to the default icon and does not show the actual favicon. The same thing happens when trying to add https://vscode.dev. However, both of those sites have favicon images in the bookmark bar on Microsoft Edge.

Any ideas on how to get the favicon to appear would be greatly appreciated. I understand that it may seem a pretty trivial thing, but I do a lot of screen recordings for my work, and want all of the icons on the bar to appear.
