I have created a new profile and copied firefox files from my old computer into it. How do I switch to the new profile, do I just delete the old one?

I am running windows 7 I had to recover my files from an external hard drive when my old computer crashed. I have created a new profiles as outlined in the firefox website and copied all the files into it. I just need to know how to use this new profile when I open firefox, do I just delete the old profile? Or do I have to reinstall firefox.

If you no longer need or intent to use that older profile then you can use the Profile Manager to remove that profile and delete the files.
