Tried all the stuff recommended. Bit the bullet and did a Firefox Master Reset, which only succeeded in erasing saved values in Password Mgr, Reminder Fox, and Read It Later. A browser remove&replace using Control Manager in my Vista didn't work. Finally used my Norton Utilities software which has a "remove unwanted software" program. Followed that with a "Bleach Free Disk Space program. Installed new FF with all ties to previous one gone. Bingo!

Hi Pete, do you still have the Old Firefox Data folder on your desktop from the Reset? Your add-on data would be in there, but as for how to make it usable again, you would need to check with the support address for the specific add-ons.
