    While attempting to clean up my computer I believe I have erased all of my firefox bookmarks The are not in the library or past history. Is they away of recovering them from the Firefox server if they truly are no longer anywhere on my computer?

    What is the "Firefox server"?

    If you had Firefox Sync activated, then you have all your bookmarks stored online so they can be synched with other FF browsers on othr machines. If not, they are not online anywhere.

    Bookmarks are saved as .json files. You can find backups of them in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\r5c1omq7.default\bookmarkbackups (profile name may be different). Import last bookmarks from this directory to restore it.
