Firefox 8 Update

  Boghound 09 Nov 11

Anyone updated to Firefox 8 without pulling their hair out over all the add-ons extensions being disabled or disappearing? Is there a way to avoid laboriously installing them all? Thank God I've more then one PC!!!!

No problems here on all three computers, one desktop, one laptop and a netbook

When updating it did ask if you wanted to save your add-ons maybe you missed it.

Maybe best removing firefox completely and just updating the latest version.

I have no problem since updating earlier except it is slow opening PCA and it's pages but I think that is down to PCA and not Firefox.

Thanks Buteman.....I must have missed that...Did you use the Firefox update or a download file?

No just used the update in help, and about Firefox.

If you have got the same Firefox setup on your other PC then use Mozbackupenter link description here to transfer your profile across from one machine to the other.

This should transfer all bookmarks and add-ons etc.
