Refresh undo? My plugins are gone. NO warning prompt. CHAOS. Need restoration of plugins from old.

An inadvertent "REFRESH" click destroyed my plugins. Gone. No folder profile available because of browser updates - in other words, I cannot get my old profile back? My old profile with the plugins is listed in data on the desktop, however I'm unable to revert to the previous state of the browser, prior to clicking the refresh. Apparently the new "profile" is set in stone. Is there any way to get plugins back without a hassle? I've forgotten all of the names but they're vital. Now I've got to resort to hacking? Can I not revert?

What does "Refresh" mean? Old school: "refresh" means to F5- NOT destroy plugins, etc. How do I get everything back. There's no revert button for FF's new age refresh interface mistake? Misleading. DESTROY would be a better term for the chaos created in my world by the inappropriately named button. Must I get a degree in FF's new age browser speak to fix this? It's easy to get lost with all this. KISS. Any help? I seem to be lost. I'll likely have to start over...I'd had other plans for the day. There should be a warning prompt for this kind of user abuse. There is none.

A WARNING PROMPT? Seriously, for this kind of carnage created by the inappropriate 'refresh" button, you should be warned first. I was not.

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.

Then reinstall the latest version.

Note: Windows users should download the active_x for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

What the Firefox Refresh is https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings

It is not something that does spring cleaning and dusting. It is more closer to that of creating a new Profile.

btw Plugins refers to say the NPAPI Flash Player Plugin from Adobe and not to Extensions that you can install from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/extensions/
