Can't get Firefox Multi-Account Containers to sync - is there a way to transfer the container config one time?

I'm moving to a new computer and installed Firefox.

I've done a sync and everything moved over except for my container settings/configuration.

On the new Windows PC, the Firefox settings look like this: If I go to the Sync settings for Firefox: about:preferences?entrypoint=fxa_app_menu#sync It says: You are currently syncing these items. But Containers is not on the list.

If I go to the General settings for Firefox: about:preferences#general It says: Enable Container Tabs is checked but greyed out.

If I go to the Firefox Multi-Account Containers settings, Enable synchronisation is checked.

If I can't get sync to work, is there a file I can copy from the old computer and move to the new one that has all the Container conifguraiton details?

Thanks
