When I try to upgade to the latest version, where have my list of favorities gone?
I use Windows7 on my PC and constantly told that I am not using the latest version of Firefox on thr Firefox start page, but when I try to upgrade to the latest version it runs but I cannot see how to access my list of favorities that I have built up over the years. Can someone tell me how to overcome this problem please?

The "built-in" way to access your favorite sites in Firefox is to find them on the Bookmarks menu (Alt+b should drop down the menu) or in the Bookmarks sidebar (Ctrl+b should open or close the sidebar). Do either of those work?
Some users adopted an add-on named PlainOldFavorites to show their Internet Explorer favorites on a separate menu in Firefox, instead of importing them to the Bookmarks menu. If you were using PlainOldFavorites and haven't updated it, you might need to update: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/plainoldfavorites/
By the way, if you are using the old Firefox 3 start page, which is a page on google.com, the message there is permanent and isn't based on the actual version you're using.
