I have lost reminder fox ..lots of important dates etc....how do I get it back

Posted

I have lost reminder fox from Firefox. This had lots of important dates. Can I get it back. Something is showing in the files when I search the computer but I cant figure out how to try and add to profile. It also wont let me read it because windows doesn't know how to open it. I have tried the "copying files between profile folders" but it wont let me right click inside the profile to paste for some reason

Chosen solution

Hi there....no the extension did not show up anywhere within Firefox, although I could find a few "reminderfox" mentions on a windows search.

This drove me mad for the morning and half the afternoon (I am one of those people who don't like to be beaten... especially by the computer). So I have now solved my problem.

What I did was to reinstall reminderfox , then, after another search, I just dragged "reminderfox.ics.bak3" (presuming it was the backup) into the icon on the status bar and voila!!! it worked.

Many thanks for picking up on my question

By any chance did you use the Reset feature or create a new Firefox profile using the profile manager?

Assuming not...

Does the extension show up on the following tab, enabled or disabled, and what is the version number?

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons > Extensions category

Note: Disabled extensions appear at the bottom of the list with a grayed background.
