About an hour ago I did myself a huge disfavor and accidentally reset firefox, losing all my extensions, open tabs, and web history. However, I found my "old firefox data" and copied the information I needed onto my new profile (using the guide found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Recovering%20important%20data%20from%20an%20old%20profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders). But now I don't know how to "save" my profile. Restarting firefox seems to do nothing, and I'm too scared to do anything else (lest I mess up AGAIN). Can anyone help me with this? Am I doing it incorrectly?


EDIT: fixed the problem! If anyone is dumb like me and had the same issue, what I did was create an entirely new profile and copy all the files from the old profile into the new, and then restart firefox. Apparently I was just copying the file onto the same default profile, so it would just revert back after I closed the window. ._.

Prior to Firefox 29, using status 4 evar, I was able to mouse over a link, and I could see where that link would point. This allowed decide whether I should avoid clicking on the link. Unfortunately, this no longer seems to be working in the new Firefox. I have downloaded the Classic Theme Restorer, and it doesn't seem to be helping.

Any ideas?

I now have a grey menu line at the top and I had chosen to have an orange one I can't find out how to get it back. Also there used to be a Firefox button on the extreme top left of the menu bar and in this I could choose to print preview before I printed off a page - sometimes the orientation needed to be adjusted - and I can't find this. This button used to also allow me to send a link to the page by email - where is this? I really hate it when useful features like this are just taken away just because somebody thinks that it will be more "modern". I also play some Facebook games and there can be a delay in these. My husband keeps telling me to change over to Chrome as this works faster on his PC which is right next to mine. I have resisted so far but I must admit that this latest "update" has left me wondering if I should stay with Firefox!!!!

As above. There used to be a place I could click at the top of the page to search for individual items within the page. That function appears to be gone!

I have multiple files I need to use all the time and I am stymied!

example: https://www.familytreedna.com/public/r1a/default.aspx?vgroup=r1a§ion=yresults

How do I now search for a particular kit number or member name???
