FF revamped their browser in recent days and the "fancy" improvements ruined the user experience. So I removed it from my system. Not thinking that I'd lose the bookmarks. There were not many but a few. Are they lost?

There are two bookmarkbackup folders. One is empty and the other has 7 items which are not recognizable as anything.

 Maybe they will be restored if I re-download FF?
