how to restore settings and addons

Posted

My Firefox keeps "refreshing" itself. I have an Acronis backup and want to know what files to restore? If that won't work, I also have Old Firefox Data Folder on my desktop if that will help. Many thanks.

Do you know why this is? Anything you do could be lost if the browser refreshes again.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
