Context menus don't show up for several Firefox Add-ons

Hello, I noticed the other day that the Autofill (3.6) context menus no longer show up in Firefox. There are actually several context menus that no longer show up, (such as Adobe PDF). Autofill is still running in the background because it is doing it’s job, for the most part. The problem is, if I want to add something to it, I have to do it manually. Sounds like it’s a bug in Firefox that nobody has noticed yet as I can’t find any mention of any issue on the Firefox support page. I’m sending a copy of this to FF Support as well.

I have also found this now and again. Why, I do not know. But one day, I reset Firefox because of another issue, and the add-ons were working after.

Reset Firefox -- easily fix most problems

If you're having problems with Firefox, resetting it can help. The reset feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.

I've reset Firefox 3 or 4 times. The addon's show up for a little while after I reinstall them, but will eventually disappear from context menus as soon as I restart the browser.
