Disabled containers extension and lost data BUT have a 2nd computer synced, how can I restore?

I disabled all extensions today to troubleshoot a website and all of my Firefox container data is GONE!

Luckily, I have a second computer with Firefox that was synced earlier today before I did this.

I have put that computer #2 into airplane mode and have not opened Firefox in fear that a new sync will overwrite the data.

So far, I have saved "containers json" and "cookies sqlite" from computer #2 profile folder

Then, I backed up "containers json" and "cookies sqlite" from computer #1 profile folder (this is the computer I'm using now with the broken containers)

I have placed "containers json" and "cookies sqlite" from computer #2 and overwritten them on computer #1

The container names are back, and some of the containers remember the site logins, but some don't, and none of the websites will open in the specifically chosen containers from before.

Is there a way to restore the sites that were logged in and which sites auto-open with the specific container?

Thank you in advance
