Cannot find my bookmarks in backed up profiles to transfer to a new PC

I switched to a new computer (Windows 10) from a Windows 7 PC. I had backed up what I thought are designated as Firefox profile folders to be able to restore my bookmarks on the new computer. I reinstalled Firefox on this computer.

When I open the backed up profile I see no "bookmarks" folder nor can I find places.sqlite files.

Is it possible that the bookmarks are contained in another location on my backed up profiles? I attach a picture of their contents.

I really need these bookmarks as they represent several years of work.

Hi

Thank you for posting that image, but looking at it I cannot see any evidence of files that would contain your bookmarks.

Assuming that is the only profile you have and that picture represents the full contents, I am unaware of where else they could be.
