more options

I have had mozilla and firefox for several years and have upgraded many times but when it upgraded this time it confused me... I don't know how to access my files.. I end up on : Manage preferences and add-ons and don't know what to do next to access my files.. Do not want to mess up my files or emails.. Your help would be appreciated..
