Why can I no longer use "favorites" since the last Firefox update????

I imported all my Favorites from Internet explorer when I first began using Firefox. I click on "favorites" and I get a complete list of all the URLs I use a lot. After the last update, the list no longer appears. I've reloaded the app and no joy. It still works if I quit firefox and use IE.

The PlainOldFavorites extension, which shows your Windows/IE favorites in Firefox, needs an update. The author has posted it on the add-ons site, but the Add-ons team hasn't finished their review yet. If you want to grab it now, you can get it from the "versions" page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/plainoldfavorites/versions/

Does that fix it?

Alternately, you can import your IE Favorites into Firefox's Bookmarks system. However, if you plan to add new Favorites in IE, then they would not be the same between browsers, so perhaps that isn't the right approach for you.
