Reporter, if you know where your profile folder is, please navigate to it and
look for the bookmarks.html file, or any similarly named file (e.g.
bookmarks1.html).  Please report back whether you find only one or several
similar files, and which one had your original bookmarks, if any.  (Just open
each in a web browser to view.)
BTW, It's not recommended to install over an existing copy; you should delete
old folders first, or install in a different folder.

this might help for further installations but makes uppgrading mozilla a little
more tedious that it jas to be. But I guess it works....
