I just noticed this now, but on my Desktop, I see a folder called Old Firefox Data. Is there a way to force Firefox to take back that data?

Yes you can. Don't delete that folder whatever you do.

Read the following link thoroughly and follow the instructions within.

Transferring data to a new profile - Firefox

Please note under Firefox 4 and above where it states the following concerning Step #2:

Note: In Firefox 14 and later changed to "Show Folder" on Windows


If you need more precise instructions, do ask before proceeding.
