Used Firefox as my browser. Used a cleaner program. On restart, Windows 7 would not boot fully. System Restore to before installing the cleaner program didn't work.

Used HP backup facility to create back of all files, etc. on my C: drive on an external drive. Used another HP facility to reinstall Windows 7, etc. as if computer just arrived the factory. Moved backed up files to C: drive in a Recovery directory.

Installed Firefox 5.0.1. Can't find and import the Bookmarks, passwords, cookies, etc. that should be in saved Recovery directory. Searched "bookmarks" in Windows 7 facility of my C: - got no results.

How to I find and import my old/saved bookmarks, etc. to new Firefox install?
