A bit desperate here. Windows crashed with no chance of repairing the installation. Hard drive And all files on it are accessible. Firefox had thousands of bookmarks for a very important project.

There seems to be no Firefox profile on the drive. Searched in hidden folders as well. Certainly not where it’s supposed to be: …\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Search for all files on the drive, but there seems to be no SQLITE or JSON files related to Firefox.

Not even a folder anywhere in the drive called Mozilla or Firefox or Profiles or Profile (at least not in relation to Firefox).

There’s no file called places.sqlite or bookmarkbackups anywhere on the drive.

The drive itself seems to be in a good condition and all other files are there and accessible. The file system doesn’t seem to be corrupt And man thousands of bookmarks were there before windows crashed.

Also checked places in \Roaming\ Just in case, as sometimes it could be found there for some installations.

Nothing found anywhere so far. Seems like running out of options.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much everybody for your time and attention.

You weren't using Firefox MSIX from Microsoft Store as that version keep its profiles in a different location ?

Can you find the Firefox installation folder in "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" to confirm that you have the regular Firefox version?

It’s strange but I cannot even find Firefox installation.

There’s no folder below if it was Firefox MSIX from Microsoft Store C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Packages\Mozilla.Firefox_XXXX

And there’s not this one either: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\

Nor in Program Files (x86).

I’ve never experienced anything like this in 30 years dealing with thousands of other users.

Any other ideas? And thank you!
