I am moving my 'profile' from one netbook (which uses Windows XP) to a newer netbook (using Windows 7 starter). I have found two folders off the 'users/(my name)/local' and 'users/(my name)/roaming' that seem to be duplicate default profile folders. When I copy my profile from the older netbook, how do I know which folder to put it into.

Hope this is clear

Firefox's Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data are stored in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles on Windows, regardless of version.

The profile folder in the path users/(my name)/local only contains the Cache folder/files and the Safe Browsing information (urlclassifier3.sqlite) and a couple of other files. See information about "Cache" and "Offline Cache" under "4.1 Folders" in this article and how to find their location with about:cache: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox#Folders
Also see: http://kb.mozillazine.org/About_protocol_links
You do NOT need to copy/transfer the files & folders in this path to your new notebook, as these files will be automatically rebuilt on the new notebook.

There is also information in that first link about files and folders in your "main" profile folder in the path users/(my name)/roaming.
For a recommendation of the items to copy/transfer in this profile folder location see:
