I saved a profile which appears as a pcv file (using mozbackup). How do I use this to restore details to Firefox on another computer? I am using v 3.6 on Windows 7

You can install mozbackup on the other computer and use that to import the .pcv file.

Alternatively, a pcv file is just a zip file, you can use any archive utility that can extract zip files and manually copy the contents into your current profile folder. For details of the location of your profile folder see the Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data article. The Recovering important data from an old profile article may also be of use, in your case the old profile is the pcv file.
