Windows10 Won't Boot & Won't Restore - Need To Recover My Mozilla Profile VIA Command Line

After following a support document on editing system registry (the document suggested a full registry export in opposition to the chosen registry key export which does no good when in my situation using Windows 'reg import' can not be done using the full registry backup) to restore functionality of my Seagate USB Backup Plus Windows10 will not boot and I fear that I am going to have to start from scratch and so I wanted to ask this question in preparation for the worst possible scenario.

I am chronically reliant upon being able to close Mozilla having faith that it will always restore my last session(s) of all open tabs and their locations successfully EVERY TIME ... now that I may have to start from scratch with my OS, I am desperate to recover my Mozilla profile and I am in great hopes, that recovering the profile will likewise have my last session data to be restored once I get Windows10 running again, because I will really be in a pickle if I lose my open tabs!

So my questions are:

1: Is it possible to recover the profile including the very important "Restore Last Session" where all open tabs of the last session exists?

2: I will be retrieving the files VIA Command Line. I would like to be certain that I am retrieving the correct file(s) from the correct file location(s). Can someone provide the Mozilla profile folder locations and names.


Thanking you in advance for your time and knowledge

Best Regards

I recently changed my laptop. I took a backup of the entire profile folder. In my new laptop, I deleted the entire contents of the new profile folder and pasted the contents from the old profile folder. This process works for me every time. However, this time my bookmarks are getting lost. Everything else is in place. Is there a method to manually restore only the bookmarks from my profile folder backup? I never took a manual backup of only bookmarks. Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
