*new user* Copied profile's extensions and bookmarks doesn't appear when using portable

I just installed Firefox Portable (Win XP Home) on my Fly Drive.
I copied the entire content of my Profile Directory from %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles to the D:\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile folder. I deleted the FirefoxPortableSettings.ini file. When Portable Firefox opens it appears like a new version of Firefox, no bookmarks, extensions, etc.
What did I do wrong?
Thanks!

Okay, I think I figure out

Okay, I think I figure out part of the problem, sort of. I uninstalled PFF and reinstalled it.
Unlike my last installation, I copied the profile directory BEFORE opening PFF for the first time.
Now I have my bookmarks.
The extensions (add-ons) are listed under Tools/Add-ons.
The problem (now) is, the extensions all read
"This extension will be installed the next time Firefox is restated".
When I restart, the extensions are still not installed.
What do I do now?

You could

deinstall and vreinstall all extensions
