lost my pocket add on

Posted

I am a total dummy when it comes to computers. I have enough knowledge to be dangerous. One of the features I have really enjoyed is pocket. I have been having problems with my computer.(OS Windows Vista) I live with my brother and last night, my brother disabled my computer and moved my data to his(OS Windows Vista). In the process, somehow all my pocket data has been lost. the rest of my Firefox attributes seem to be working just fine but I cannot get my old pocket data to show up in the sidebar. Should I just kiss my old data goodbye or is there hope?

Did your brother transfer the full Firefox profile folder?

You need the main profile folder in "AppData\Roaming".

Question owner

He's currently out of town so I can't get an answer and I don't know enough to even follow your inquiry. Like I stated I'm a dummy and a real one. through trial and error, I did manage to find pocket with most of my saved info. However; I was unable to get it to display in the sidebar as it used to. Now, I'm wondering if that feature is no longer available. That was really handy. I really thank you for your patience and suggestions I'm just sorry I'm such a dumba$$

Pocket comes now as a built-in extension as part of three feature extensions.

  1. e10srollout: e10srollout@mozilla.org
  2. loop: loop@mozilla.org
  3. pocket: firefox@getpocket.com

I don't know if anything has changed about the way it works as I've never used it.
