Tried to revert to Win7 from Win10 without knowing 30-day rule.  Created a mess and now trying to restore previous Win10 setup but can't find Bookmarks. Any suggestions?

 

I've been able to set-up Firefox, Yahoo, Google, Bookmarks Toolbar (am having to re-add what was there), but my old Bookmarks I can't find. I hope someone can help me please.

 

Thank you for your help

If it did not get overwritten your bookmarks would be in the profile folder. You may have more than one profile. Look through them all.

 

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data

 

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

 

Bookmarks, Downloads and Browsing History: The places.sqlite file contains all your Firefox bookmarks and lists of all the files you've downloaded and websites you’ve visited. The bookmarkbackups folder stores bookmark backup files, which can be used to restore your bookmarks. 

 

%APPDATA% is a hidden folder. You will need to unhide hidden folders first.
