Back up profile contents copied. Profile contents not seen by firefox

Following this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

When I put the contents of my backup profile in a newly created profile or the initial profile, set firefox to load that profile automatically, and load firefox, it doesn't see anything from the backup. profiles.ini is set to use that profile.

Even if I delete every profile and create a new one, it doesn't see the stuff from the backup.

What can I look into to figure out why this isn't working? Is there some kind of settings file?

Firefox problems with kaspersky internet security

"KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2016 DISABLED BY FIREFOX jscher2000 Nov 2, 2016, 4:05:56 AM

Hi boldeagle, Firefox can't disable your Kaspersky security software, only the add-ons that Kaspersky adds to Firefox. And if you have one of the more recent updates for the 2016 version, they got rid of several of their older extensions and are installing a new one that definitely should be signed and verified.

Could you share with us your current list of enabled and disabled extensions? The simplest way is to view the full list on the troubleshooting information page. Either:

   "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
   (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
   type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter/Return

Then scroll down to Extensions and just below that heading, select the table with your mouse and copy it (either Ctrl+c or right-click > Copy), then paste it into a reply (either Ctrl+v or right-click > Paste). It will look a bit messy, but we're used to it. Thanks."

Here is the screen (unfotunately is in Italian..............)

Estensioni Nome Versione Attiva ID Adblock Plus 2.8.1 true {d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d} Kaspersky Password Manager 3.8.8 true kpm_win_add_on@kaspersky Kaspersky Protection 4.6.2-42-20160922074409 true light_plugin_D772DC8D6FAF43A29B25C4EBAA5AD1DE@kaspersky.com Multi-process staged rollout 1.3 true e10srollout@mozilla.org Pocket 1.0.4 true firefox@getpocket.com Video DownloadHelper 6.1.1 true {b9db16a4-6edc-47ec-a1f4-b86292ed211d} Web Compat 1.0 true webcompat@mozilla.org Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF 1.0 false web2pdfextension@web2pdf.adobedotcom

On the verge of deleting Firefox.

Not asking for help - just wanted at least ONE LIVE BODY at Mozilla to see this, but I don't think that will happen.

This is in response to JSCHER2000 reply to me about my original question: "Windows 10 Annaversary update installed, now I cannot, "Restore Previous Session"???? Then he (jscher2000) asked me: "...How far did get? When you are in the Profiles folder, you should see one or more folders with a random alphanumeric string on the left side, and a word or a word following by a number on the right side. For example:

9ded0vb6.default

There not much else there to look at other than one or more folders that follow that naming pattern.
