Firefox uses two locations in the hidden "AppData" location for the Firefox profile folder. One location in "AppData\Roaming" for personal data like bookmarks and logins and another location in "AppData\Local" for temporary files like the disk cache, so make sure to look in the correct location. Primary location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).
  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>
Secondary location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).
  • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>

In Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles, which method did you follow?

(A) Copy entire old profile folder into

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

(B) Copy the contents of the old profile folder into a new or existing profile folder under

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

for example into

%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\b34zw6g.something

(C) Something else
