Restoring from old image left all bookmarks unorganized.

I recently had to restore my laptop from a disc image from early July. I had spent about 4 hours in late July organizing all my bookmarks into folders. When I restarted Firefox, it had the bookmarks back in the old unsorted list, as it had been prior to the image being created. I attempted to restore bookmarks but found the options listed as restore points are missing for all the time in between when the disc image was created and when I reinstalled Firefox last week. How do I find the the restore points in between that are now missing from the list? I tried switching the user profile I had saved prior to the reboot I did last week and it just reset to the old list of bookmarks I had back in early July. I do NOT want to have to reorganize all those folders AGAIN! Any help would be appreciated - I'm guessing the other restore points are associated with a different profile but how do I get it back if all Firefox lists is a single default associated with early July version?

If you have a restore point where the bookmarks have been organized otherwise, the file in the profile folder that stores bookmarks is called places.sqlite. Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles

Awesome! Just needed to know the specific file and switch out from the old profile. Thanks so much!
