Returning to CID, where's my configuration?

I used to make some use of Comodo Ice Dragon before a hard drive crash in 2014. I had my data professionally recovered. Recently Firefox has become so awful that I felt the need for another Gecko browser.

I copied the Program Files folder from the recovered data to a secondary hard drive, and I copied the Application Data folders to my C drive. I was very disappointed to find that when I opened the GUI there were no bookmarks, no Session Manager or other extensions, and no browser history. The same thing obtained when I opened the GUI directly from the recovered data folder. I found through careful checking that the folders do indeed contain the files they need to produce these things in the GUI.

Re-installing didn’t help.

Worked on it some more and have been able to get my extensions and my search engines back into the GUI, but not yet my history, bookmarks, and old Session Manager sessions.

Turns out re-installing was necessary but not sufficient. After a lot of work reading up on Gecko browser application files and using Beyond Compare to compare the folders and files and copy from the recovered data folder, I was finally able to get all my data back in my present Comodo IceDragon GUI.

Now can I import profile data from Firefox that I’m abandoning to Comodo IceDragon?
