A but late for your meeting but if you haven't sorted it out yet:-
OK, they're probably not lost at all. When you close Firefox, at times it may not close out properly and when you try to re-open it, it thinks it is still operational and will ask you to create another profile because it 'thinks' the one you wanted is in use.
To remedy this, open the Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del), select the Processes tab and look for any instances of firefox.exe. Any instances should be selected and removed by clicking 'End Process'. Once they are cleared you will be able to access Firefox again. However, if you have created another profile you will want to get to your original profile to re-enable your previously saved data.
To select a profile for use click - Start > Run > (type) firefox.exe -p (firefox[dot]exe[space]-p). You will now open the Profile Manager whereby you can Select, Create, Rename or Delete profiles. There is also an option to open the Profile Manager on every start of Firefox, which is very useful for multiple profiles and/or users.
