Went to upload files to a website fireftp has disappeared... using Firefox 19. It says its in addons but I cant find it anywhere, not under web developer, or tools.. completely disappeared. There was an update on 10th of Feb and I noticed some changes to the way the directory tree was showing, but now it has completely disappeared.... and its a real pain.. as I have quite a few accounts... any clues... or advice...

People have been having problems with FireFTP lately. Most say that started with FF 18.0.2.

Working fine here via the Web Developer menu.

  • chrome://fireftp/content/fireftp.xul

You can check for problems with the localstore.rdf file.

You can also try to uninstall and reinstall FireFTP and reset fireftp prefs on the about:config page.

Question owner

Nothing in the Web Developer menu. Reinstalled, still same problem.

Did you try to delete the localstore.rdf file?

You can also try to delete the files extensions.* (e.g. extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini, extensions.cache) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

New files will be created when required.

See "Corrupt extension files":

If you see disabled, not compatible, extensions in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the Tools button at the left side of the Search Bar (or click the "Find Updates" button in older Firefox versions) to check if there is a compatibility update available.
