Unbootable computer - can I recover logins and bookmarks?

more options

Hello I have been very stupid. I have a lot of useful Firefox logins, passwords and bookmarks, stored on a computer which now won't boot. The data were not synced to any other device. I can read the C drive using a system rescue disk, and have been able to copy emails and other data to a working computer. Is there any way to copy the Firefox data from the non-working computer and import to Firefox on my working machine? Basically I need to know, in terms of directory and file names, where Firefox stores these data, and any problems in reading these files. The dead computer used Windows 10, version 2004. Firefox used automatic update, so would be the latest version as of last Wednesday. Many thanks for any help. Peter Kenny

Apologies to all for asking a silly question. Having read the documentation thoroughly, I have now found where profiles are stored. It looks as though i just need to copy the whole profile folder - there is only one, last modified the day the dead computer last worked. I hope to have it all going soon. Peter
