Windows 7: Restored to an earlier date - files missing

Restored to an earlier date - files missing

My computer got weird the other day. Mozilla was deleted and when I installed again it wasn't working right.

Long story short I restored my system to an earlier date, which usually works fine. This time all my bookmarks and saved passwords are gone. I just went through this lost passwords thing a few weeks ago and it was a nightmare. Is there a way I can get them back?

I haven't been happy with the bookmarks for along time. I can't seem to get them organized. Most everything is in "other bookmarks". I like to have about 6 folder that the bookmarks are stored in. For instance, if I'm paying bills I can look in the accounts folder.

users --> [acct name] --> AppData --> Local --> Mozilla
ditto----------------------------------------> Roaming --> Mozilla
if those were not overwritten, your Firefox stuff should be in there.

I just realized something when I re-read the opening post. Exactly how did you restore your system? Depending upon what that restore procedure was -- your FF Local and Roaming directories may very well been over-written, meaning you are very likely starting with a clean slate.

I am trying to perform a restore from and earlier date (actually only 2 days earlier). Nonetheless, the restore never gets past "initializing" stage. The "wheel" continues to spin, but judging from the hard drive indicator, there is nothing happening....a single blink every 30 sec or so. Thanks...
