Recovering Firefox Profile (w/ EaseUS Data Recovery) After Factory Reset

more options

I lost my Firefox profile data (amongst other files) after a hardware issue forced a repair and a factory reset. I purchased the EaseUS Data Recovery tool to try recover my Firefox data but am running into issues.

I located the two folders (one ending in ".default-release" and the other ending in ".default-release-1632317792925") from the PRE-reset file location C:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.

I then close Firefox, delete all of the folders from the same location in the POST-reset location of those same files, and paste the older folders in their place.

However, when I start Firefox, it only shows me POST-reset tabs. Am I doing something wrong?

To get more specific, I am particularly interested in recovering my session history as I had a large number of important tabs open at the time of the crash
