Not sign in just install FF and log in and see if your contacts are visible again.
Highlight them and copy and paste in notepad then print them.
That way you can enter them wherever you want.
Or............
Copy and paste or drag them to a usb stick.

Not that it makes any difference....How many did you lose?
How about contacting FF and see if they can help you out?
Go to FF forum to the help desk.

Read your first post....You had 2 versions of FF right?
Do you remember which version you deleted with hope to re-install that one?

Not much more I can think of other than digging deep into your brain and searching for the bookmarks you need.
Then going to links and adding it all over again.
You aren't the first one to do that as I have been down that road before and over time I book marked and saved them in a secure place.
Best of luck to you.

Recuva - Download

Your other alternative is a professional data recovery service, but they are very expensive.
I did use get data back and found json backup files but can not read them or know what to do with them.

I managed to use get data back and it found the back up Json files but it wont accept them? when i use a json viewer in firefox to view the backups i get "There was an error parsing the json document. The document may not be well formed.'' I really only need a few sites back but stuck now?
Download GetDiz and install it (also helpful for opening nfo or other text based files that notepad has issues with). Right click the json file and choose open with. Navigate to GetDiz and open the file. The urls will be highlighted in green and you can click on them to open the webpage and you can bookmark them again.

The json files will be stored in

C:\users\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\st23ybtb.default\bookmarkbackups

Also,( bit like closing the barn door once the horse has bolted) use xmarks, it backs up your bookmarks online then you can use your bookmarks wherever you are .
also it syncs every time you save a bookmark ,
when you open your browser it loads your bookmarks,
it can sync across several computers and across different browsers.

Odd, if they are intact json files, you should get something like this:
