I am trying to transfer an old profile into Windows 7, but the AppData folder does not show up under my name folder in USERS. How can I find it?

When I go to Help & Troubleshooting & click Open Containing Folder I get a Windows Explorer window that shows the file path including Used-Edward-AppData, etc. But when I click on the little triangle to the right of Edward the drop down menu does not include AppData and if I just go into Windows Explorer and Users-Edward, there is no AppData folder. So I cannot overwrite the profile file with the saved profile info from my earlier laptop. The folder symbol next to Edward has a lock on it but I don't know what that means or how to unlock it.

%AppData% is the name of an environment variable. On XP that variable points to C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\

"Application Data" in XP/Win2K and "AppData" in Vista/Windows 7 are hidden folders, use %APPDATA% in the File name field See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Show_hidden_files_and_folders
