Hi GeorgeMaybe I should leave this to the FireFox experts . . . but, in my opinion you better dellete the /home/george/.mozilla/firefox directory . . . it will be rebuild as soon as you start FF again and probably solve the problems.( Also have a lok if you maybe have a /home/george/.phoenix directory . . . maybe 8.0 was still using that one . . ):hmm: Bruno

It should be /home/george4/.mozilla/firefox.  The .mozilla profile directory is hidden, so make sure you are viewing hidden files in your file manager.../home/george4/firefox   is the firefox application directory.  Your extensions will be installed in your profile directory.Good luck.

Thanks bruno and tranquilloi found the directory thanks to tranquillo's information and actuallly i just renamed it as oldfirefox instead of deleting it outright . and as bruno said when i restarted it did in fact correct the problem with extensions . however a smaller problem occurred i lost my bookmarks .but since i kept the folder now i assume all i need do is find the bookmark folder and move it to the new /mozilla/firefox dir .

Very clever to rename the directory George :D . . . . now the bookmarks . . . . Here they are:/home/george/.mozilla/firefox/default.xxx/bookmarks.html( Don't forget the dot this time :ph34r: :offtopic:  . . . and the xxx are randon caracters different on every system ;) )B) Bruno
