I deleted firefox and didnt save my bookmarks!! I need them!!

I had 2 versions of firefox on my pc, and both had bookmarks. So i deleted one program and when i opened the other firefox there was no more bookmarks!! How do i get them back? 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?

Try a system restore to a point in time before you deleted your other version of Firefox, and then make sure you save your bookmarks to an external source before you delete it (Firefox) again.

You could try Recuva, but once again you need an external source to save any recovered files to.

Recuva - Download

Your other alternative is a professional data recovery service, but they are very expensive.

Welcome there may be one last resort before the recovery service. A bit like using atomic weapons to kill a fly, but how about a system image.

I did use get data back and found json backup files but can not read them or know what to do with them.

If the data is corrupted I guess you've lost the files unless you are prepared to pay a lot of money to get them back.

Can you now see the value of system restore and regular backups?

I just woke up this morning and was reading this post......
Why not download FF and sign in under your old account and pluck those addresses/contacts then transfer to
a stick and then uninstall FF?

Or do I need more caffeine to be up to speed?

I'd say your caffiene levels are fine, Dennis.

Seems like a good solution to me.
