Is there a way from where I can restore my profile from a back-up that I took from a folder (e.g \Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\)
Before re-installing Firefox 19, I mistakenly took backup of my profile from a folder - C:\Documents and Settings\garan14\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and not from C:\Documents and Settings\garan14\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.
While installing, I selected "Delete the old profiles" option and I don't see any old profile folder under C:\Documents and Settings\garan14\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.
However, I have a lot of important data saved under that profile which now has got deleted.
Is there any way I can still restore the data from old profile? (P.S.: As mentioned above, I have a back-up of profile folder which resides under Local Settings folder)
I am in a desperate need for the help. Pls reply as soon as possible.

If you have deleted the Firefox profile folder manually, but left the profiles.ini file then you need to delete the profiles.ini file to force Firefox to create a new profiles.ini file and a new default profile.
