Recently, something called Babylon assist took control of Firefox and I was forced to reset Firefox to get rid of this. As a consequence, I lost the ability to right click on a page and select from a list that allowed me to view form details in a pop-up window. I used this feature frequently in developing database driven applications that have lots of forms. Can anyone please tell me how to restore this lovely feature? I found something that opens a new tab with the form information in a large format that is rather ugly - I really want to get back to the nice little pop-up that displayed the basic form information.

I think you are missing an extension that you were using before. After using Reset, a folder is created on the desktop with a name similar to "Old Firefox Settings." If you open this folder, you will find a subfolder named extensions that contains your previous collection. The problem in using this as a reference point is that many extensions are stored under a GUID rather than their friendly name. But it might still be worth a look, and you could Google the GUIDs to see whether you find any matches.
P.S. I'm curious to know what it was.
THANK YOU - your clues led me to the correct add-on. It's called 'Links and Forms' and says that it adds back the links and forms tabs that were in the Page Info window of Firefox 2. I have found it to be very handy in debugging forms that I've created.
