Restoring bookmarks

Hello, I re-installed firefox and copied the backups from the old profile to the new profile. However, it is not complete - how do I find the bookmarks that were in the "other bookmarks folder" which is now empty and how do I find the bookmarks that were in my toolbar itself? Thank you.

Copy two files, places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite, from the old profile folder to the new. You will need to rename the files already in the new profile if you don't want to overwrite them. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile
