How can I find/restore inadvertently deleted Bookmarks Folders, Bookmarks, and Bookmarks Toolbar Bookmarks?

I have a long term, normally used instance of Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows 7).
I wanted a separate instance of Firefox. Using IE, I downloaded and saved a setup file of 19.0.2 into a specific folder, I installed it into that folder.
Upon opening it from that folder, it had the Bookmarks, etc. from the original instance. Stupidly, thinking it was a separate installation, I deleted the Bookmarks and Bookmarks from the Bookmarks Toolbar.
Is there any way to recover the Bookmarks? Where are the Bookmarks/Toolbar Bookmarks saved; and what is the file name? I have a good recovery program, Recuva, from CCleaner.
I have run a deep scan with it. There are some recoverable files. But, what am I looking for, and where/how do I insert them if recovered? Is there any hope (a gazillion folders and Bookmarks)?
Then, whether recovered or not, how do I create separate instances of Firefox, that do not share any files? I don’t mind if the add-ons/extensions, and scripts are duplicated, but I can do that separately.
Also, “firefox.exe –p”, which worked previously, now will not work. The error message is:
"Windows cannot find ‘firefox.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
