What exactly did you save on your OneDrive? Was in the entire profile folder or just a specific file?

Note that Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder.

Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).

  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\

Do you still have your old computer? Just in case you backed up the Windows Favorites (the ones used in IE) instead of your Firefox Bookmarks, having access to the old computer would make it easy to get what you need.
