What did you mean by this?

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.

Look inside the folders. Does it have your profile inside? Compare the file list with the current profile folder.

That means the folder was created two days before, and is likely your missing profile.
