How do I find my bookmarks on a recently unsupported extension?

I have been using SamFInd Bookmarks Bar for many years. It is unsupported on the latest Firefox update to Firefox Quantum. It is very important that I am able to write down some of my very important bookmarks. I do not have these web pages saved anywhere else. How do I go about doing this? I would think I would have been warned of this, but I was not. I also cannot find any other bookmark bar that allows me to come even close to organizing my bookmarks like SamFind did. Samfind allowed me to save my bookmarks with a single click to the category I pleased. I was allowed to add custom categories to fit my needs. I was also allowed to delete categories that I did not need and disable and hide default categories. This allowed a clean organization of bookmarks that were easy to find from the start. Another great feature was that I could keep the bar visible at all times at the bottom of my browser, or I could choose to view it on the side or under my browser address bar. It always looked clean. Adding a new bookmark was as easy as one-click. A red circle was visible on the far right of my address bar that I could click on. I have searched for bookmark bar similar and am very disappointed with the options available. Please advise if you are aware of a bookmark app similar to SamFind. Also can anyone help me find my lost bookmarks? i have not deleted anything.

Try this:

Users on Firefox Quantum, which normally only works with Web Extensions (a new type of plugin architecture), can enable support for legacy add-ins through about:config, search for extensions.legacy.enabled and set it to true.

See if you can get it back working.
