The folders that I keep my categorised email s in. These contain emails from several years and accounts that are now inactive. I have attached a partial screenshot.#

Is that a screenshot of your email account or of Windows Explorer? If the former, the folders should still be there. If the latter, those folders seem not to be part of your Firefox data so they need to be copied to your laptop independently.
