I can access my documents and files by going to 'Users' then clicking on my profile and accessing the Desktop option and I have copied the files that I need. However I have no idea how to find my Firefox bookmarks, passwords, cookies and history all of which I want to keep. Is there anyway to get all of this from my user profile whilst in a temporary profile

Firefox will use the profile that is specified by profiles.ini in the profile's grandparent directory (the one called Firefox). You can edit profiles.ini to point to the profile that you want to use by default.
