Firefox "Refresh" Wiped Out All My Tiled Bookmarks

Long story short, using Firefox I was prompted to "tune-up" my browser as it was running slow. When clicking on the refresh link it ended up erasing multiple tabs of my saved tile bookmarks replacing them with what looked like an updated version of Firefox. Using Google as a resource, I attempted to reload or reinstall them, no good. Then I did a system restore to a previous point, no good. Then I did an uninstall/reinstall of Firefox, no good. I ended up having to go to as many websites as I could remember and then re-bookmark them.

Anyone else have this issue? I searched the Tech forum and did not find any similar type of issues noted.

Do you mean the tiles on the "New Tab" page? I don't use Firefox much anymore, and I never customized that page.

I've had Firefox updates wipe out some user settings. Unless you have backups of the user profile folders, it's probably no use trying to restore them.
