[Time to split the recent conversation off?]

I'd be very surprised if a profile from FF14, which might have been created several versions earlier, would work without any bugs in FF24 or later. I'd create a new profile with the firefox =p switch as a backup for 14. Then close 14 and copy the profiles somewhere safe.

Install ESR to a new location (C:\Program Files\ESR Firefox\ ?), start it in another fresh profile and name it ESR - you don't want the wrong FF version corrupting the other profile.

You might be able to copy over some parts of the old profile whilst FF is closed but certain file names have changed (one/both of the two/three password files uses a different type/name now) and I'm unsure whether ESR would handle old file names of that era. Recovering data from an old profile and here:
