You get the import wizard if the profiles.ini file that registers all Firefox profiles is missing. *http://kb.mozillazine.org/profiles.ini_file You can check if there still is an older profile folder. *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Recovering_a_missing_profile *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Recovering+important+data+from+an+old+profile *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox
