Transfer Firefox profile information to a new computer

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

To correct a problem in MS Word, Microsoft Support created a new Windows 10 profile on my laptop and reinstalled MS Office. Firefox is still on my laptop in the new profile, but its appearance is changed. It has lost all the profile data from the old Win 10 profile. I have looked at the articles under "Manage preferences and add-ons" but I don't think they solve my issue because I don't have a backup of my Firefox profile. Or, if I still do, I don't know how to find it on the old Windows profile, which is still on my laptop.

I had a lot of bookmarks, add-ons and preferences that I would like to retrieve for my browser. Is that possible?
