Have you tried restoring bookmarks from Bookmarks/show all bookmarks/import and backup?

I cannot help you with FF. I never use it. It is too much of a pain.

Normally one keeps the bookmarks in FF and IE manually synchronized. If you also did that then import the IE favorites into FF.

I've wasted far too much time on this so I'm retiring defeated and will just have to build up a new set of bookmarks.
Game, set and match. Thank you umpires. Thank you ball boys.
