firefox crashed whilst refreshing but created a folder "old firefox data". I therefore I started again and deleted then reinsalled firefox. I would like my old bookmarks to be available have tried the help info regarding copying files between profiles but does not seem to work. I can access the old and new profile but when I right click on Places.sqlite on old profile and select copy, then on new file there is no paste option. I am not computer literate and an OAP so would appreciate simple step by step instructions. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

You can try to restore a compressed .jsonlz4 from the bookmarkbackups folder in the "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop in the current profile.
