Two default profiles for a new user?

Hi! I want to move a user's Firefox profile to a new computer. I had them log in on the new workstation so Windows would create a new user profile for them. Then I had them open Firefox, so it would create the new Firefox profile, and then close it, so I could transfer the Firefox profile from the old system. Now, in their Firefox Profiles folder on the new system, \\NewWS\c$\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see two folders. One of them is "something.default-release" and the other is "somethingelse.default". I was expecting one folder there, so why are there two? And which one should I use to receive the profile from the old computer? The OS is Windows 10 and Firefox is v.96.
