So I just got pumped up to Firefox 5.0. I'm THRILLED. I'm "pinning" favorite tabs on the left - and KABOOM - they disappear when I close the browser. This is MADDENING.

Also, I don't have the new Firefox button on the top left. I've still got File/Edit/View/History/Bookmarks/Tools/Help.

Any thoughts on what's wrong? Please help.

Thanks so much!!!

Ran a previous version of FF, then closed and ran regular (5.0) version, but some add-ons, toolbars, and other stuff has disappeared. How can I get this stuff back?

I have been running 5.0 great for a while now, but today I tried downloading and running FF 3.6. As it was opening it stopped responding, but then I tried to force quit but then it worked and loaded up the pages I had open on 5.0 when I closed it.

I then closed the 3.6 version and ran the 5.0. I noticed a few things were gone or different... ~Several add-ons/extensions and toolbars were gone. Some of them were: Adblock Plus, Read it Later (and all its saved pages), Stumble Upon toolbar.... and more I am not sure of... ~Some of the saved sessions in my Session Manager add-on were gone. ~FF 5 seems to not be asking if I want to save my pages whenever I quit. ~The settings for how my tabs appeared has changed also... Like the color of text and where a new tab goes when I click on a link (to the right of the current tab or all the way to the right)... I am not sure if this is because of an associated add-on/extension being deleted.

UPDATE: I checked my profile folder and all of the extensions' data is all still there but FF5 is just not reading it correctly. (like adblock plus... I see the folder for it but FF5 doesn't have it on the add-on manager page when I run FF5) (The stumble upon toolbar folder is also in my profile folder but is not showing up in View->Toolbars when I actually run FF5)

Any help would be extremely appreciated. Thanks!

I have no other info than what is contained in the question . It did this once and only once . All the e-mails started to list on the screen , then they were gone . Subsequently , it loaded 5 new ones . In the process of trying to find out where they went I was going through the "tools" section . When I looked under "Activity Manager" there was a line that said it had removed 96 e-mails .

I want to create several Tabgroups as a "standard". That means, specific Websites are saved on Tabgroups, but when I open a new Website, this new Website should not be saved on these groups automatically.

And when I open Firefox, I want to see all these groups and Websites on one view as a Home Page. But I can't configure the "Summary page for Tabgroups" as the Home Page. It's only possible to save one Website as a Home Page.

The ambition is to configure Firefox, that whenever I start Firefox, I can see the same saved Websites in groups in their new version.

The pop up window asking me to send my data onto Firefox, is something I have not asked for or agreed to. When it pops up, it ruins the program I am already using, in particular when watching TV reruns. I am still not certain that the request for my data is not some Nigerian confidence trickster looking to cheat me.
