Firefox upgrade - profile data lost

Just wondering if there is anything else I can do. This is on my Vista laptop/tablet.

I was purposely holding off on upgrading from FireFox 2.whatever to FireFox 3. But yesterday I was typing something rapidly and FF popped up asking if I wanted to upgrade and my few keystrokes told it to upgrade. UGH!

I forgot about it, and now when I just reopened FF, it completed the install. All my bookmarks, plugins, stored passwords, etc, etc are gone apparently.

I closed it and looked in the Users/Appdata/Mozilla/whatever folder and it only has the default profile plus one named Clean that I had made months ago. So is that it, it's just all gone?

I know, I should have made backups. I know how to restore one if I can find an old backup, but it would be really old and not too useful. That was a lot of data.
