How to recover Bookmarks, history etc from corrupt Windows profile

Kuphostiwe

I have a corrupt Windows profile that refuses to be repaired and I can't boot into it, so I need to grab what I can from the Windows Profile files and/or registry , I am particularly interested in the bookmarks, history but also the look and feel customisation of the toolbars etc.

I am aware that some of the data will be in the following folder

C:\Users\User1\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default C:\Users\User1\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxx.default

Are there any other folders that need to be copied?

Once copied to a new windows profile is it enough to rename the xxxxxx.default folders above to yyyyyyy.default filename for the new profile or are there registry and/or filename changes required within other files?

Is there a utility that may make this easier?

That should be the only folder that you need to copy over because that's the only location that Firefox saves your data.

Renaming the folder to match the name of the new profile that Firefox automatically creates should be enough to recover the information.
