Am I able to import my bookmarks simply by copy/pasting my old places.sqlite into my new profile directory? I am having trouble.

Copying a SQLite database like places.sqlite only works when this file isn't corrupted and of course Firefox should be closed. You should also be cautious with copying files from an older or newer Firefox version as the schema might have changed.

Does Firefox rename the file to places.sqlite.corrupt or otherwise reject this file ?

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder. One location for your personal data (e.g. bookmarks) and another location for temporary files like the disk cache, so make sure to look in the correct location.

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

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
