To correct a problem in MS Word, Microsoft Support created a new Windows 10 profile on my laptop and reinstalled MS Office. Firefox is still on my laptop in the new profile, but its appearance is changed. It has lost all the profile data from the old Win 10 profile. I have looked at the articles under "Manage preferences and add-ons" but I don't think they solve my issue because I don't have a backup of my Firefox profile. Or, if I still do, I don't know how to find it on the old Windows profile, which is still on my laptop.

I had a lot of bookmarks, add-ons and preferences that I would like to retrieve for my browser. Is that possible?

I deleted my user profile via Profile Manager (I clicked "Don't Delete Files"). I then created another profile via Profile Manager & all info is gone. I want to restore a profile, which is still installed on my computer, but don't know how. On the attachment photo, the bottom profile is the one I am using now. The one I want to restore and to use that one ONLY on this computer is shown above it which is dated 5/19/2019. What are my options to do this? The hyperlink below is what I used to delete the "original" profile.

Thank you as alwayshttps://prod-cdn.sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2019-05-27-07-24-06-a6b778.png
