Where is profile restore?

I did a full profile backup and made destination to flash drive. When I tried to restore it accepted and said it would restore to point on next start up. When it started up the page was fresh and all history is gone. I looked on forum on how to manually restore and it doesn't work. Is all the history in the file on flash drive? And how do I restore?
Thanks

What versions of FEBE and Firefox are you using? What OS (Windows, Mac, Linux)?

What is the name and size of your FEBE full profile backup?

Are you trying to restore the backup into a new profile? Did you create that new profile or did FEBE?

If you are re-installing Firefox and have only one profile, it is best to manually restore.

FEBE 8.0.5, It was made under Firefox 31 but new Firefox is 32 when reinstalling, Windows 7 Pro

profileFx31.0{default-1403406111969}.fbu 6,822KB

I don't remember if I created new profile or if FEBE did. It did ask me to create another one as it could not restore to current...

I am reinstalling Firefox so I will try manually and see if that works.
