It is definitely not still running.
I tied copying the bookmarks.html file from the old to new profile, but that has't worked. Maybe I did it wrong.
On my machine, I found the correct bookmarks.html in ~/.mozilla/firefox/o45bf1i0.briank & copyed them to new the new profile which is something like o6f978/bookmarks.html.
That didn't work. Should I have done something else?
