Looks like the folder used by FF to hold the default profile. FF uses a random string of eight characters prepended to the name of the profile, presumably to avoid naming collisions. The name of your profile is "default" and in this case the random characters are "dx35rmcg" giving a folder name of 'dx35rmcg.default"

My profile folder is called "t6jbj19f.default" You can see why Googling the exact name would come up empty, since it's likely very rare for two people to get the same random string (there are roughly 2.8 trillion possible strings.)
