Why would refreshing Firefox cause it to no longer work? That's what happened to me after it was recommended I do so.

I got a message telling me that Firefox seemed slow and it was suggested that I do a refresh. After I did the refresh I cannot seem to do anything in Firefox at all, as now it is excruciatingly slow, to the point of not being useful at all. It really wasn't that slow before, so I'm very upset about this.

For some months, I've tried to sign into my firefox account. It tells me you send new password email, but non ever arrives. Tonight when I started trying to figure out why we are having such troubles, I got your "please donate" messages, and decided we could do that. At this point, I'm not so sure I'm glad I did sigh. Still not able to sign in, still no new password email, and when i clicked "refresh my firefox", it deleted all my add-ons. Hubby finally gave up an hour ago and went to bed. His Windows 8 laptop was working so slow he was discouraged.

We've used firefox for about 15 years, and have been very happy -- except when new updates come out and we have no clue what happened nor what to do.

Hello folks

I hope everyone is doing good :)

I 'refreshed' firefox as suggested. The guidance suggested that all my logins and passwords would be preserved but when I check the Logins and Passwords all have been cleared. I was able to find key4.db file in the Old Firefox Data folder created after the refresh but I couldn't find the second required file "logins.json" to recover my logins succesfully.

Any suggestions or advice?

Thanks

I only updated my Firefox because I got messages saying I should do this to make it work better. Now all I have is a big headache, I have already wasted hours trying to figure out this whole new system. Like, where did my bookmarks go, and how do I even access them when I get them back installed. You Firefox people are really full of it, I never wanted a "new" system. Why can't you just leave a basic system for us old people that do not want to learn a new system every time you want to fill it up with new gizmos and bells and whistles? I guess I have to go back to using internet explorer, thanks for wasting my time.

A message showed up when I opened FireFox saying "your Mozzila is running slooow refresh your Mozzilla today. So I did the refresh. I now have lost bookmarks and settings. Also the sync I did with the program weeks ago no longer works AND WORST OF ALL You Added Add-Ons I DIDN'T Need or Want without even asking. So Now I have to spend a bunch of time getting it set up the way I liked It. Or maybe Not. Is definitely time to find a new BROWSER!

But this is wrong , because if i reload this page ,then the dropdown selected value should be 1.All

Hello all. Firefox was running slow so I did the refresh and restore as directed. Now I notice that I have no more bookmarks like I did before. When I follow the instructions from the Troubleshooting Information and find my profile it will not open. When I find the places.sqfile, also will not open. When I find the bookmarks......jsonlz file, I cannot open it. Do I need some kind of extension? Are the bookmarks obviously lost for good? Am I looking in the wrong place? There seems like there should be an easy solution to this however when I root around for answers I just get more lost. I appreciate any help. Thanks! Best, dcb

Flash player problems on a game I play through Zynga. Even though I have flash player set up and updated, the game continues to say I need flash player. I have tried everything and then made the mistake of refreshing Firefox without saving. No warning was given that I would be losing all bookmarks. I even looked in the desktop file titled Old Firefox and nothing for today's refresh was showing. Please advise if there is a way to restore my bookmarks. We are talking about a lot of bookmarks lost!

Aside from needing more RAM, I see that a first step is to refresh Firefox. I see it saves quite a bit, but I don't know what I'll be losing.......it says I will lose These items and settings will be removed:

   Extensions and themes
   Website permissions
   Modified preferences
   Added search engines
   DOM storage 
   Security certificate and device settings 
   Download actions 
   Toolbar customizations 
   User styles 

I don't know what DOM storage is, and if I don't have a security certificate, is that what allows me to go to sites ? I'm hesitant to refresh 'blindly' and then learn afterwards that some crucial changes were made on the refresh and now I can't visit sites I presently can

Yesterday I noticed a folder on my desktop named "Old Firefox Data". In that folder were copies of two of my profiles (I have at least a dozen profiles set up). They are both dated 11/11/15 and timestamped about 35 minutes apart. I've researched it a bit and the information I got was that it is a folder created when one 'Refreshes Firefox'. I am fairly certain that I've never used that function. This happened just before or after Fx upgraded itself from v42 to v43.

A user of one of my extensions posted a message to my support forum that the same thing happened to him and he swears he never 'Refreshed Firefox'. in fact, he doesn't know how to do it even if he wanted. He said he got up to answer the phone and when he came back, his computer had re-booted, the folder appeared on his desktop and all his extensions were missing from Fx along with any customization of the UI.

Refreshing Firefox is not something that can easily be done accidentally. In fact, I can't even find a button to do this with Fx v43.

Is there any other way for that folder to be created other than 'Refreshing Firefox'?

Note: I realize there are similar questions on this board about this, but none of the answers really provide a satisfactory solution.
