I want to prevent the loss of my settings etc. after an update

Every so often, I lose all of my settings (ex. options, extensions, dashboard) after an upgrade. Just like today. I tried the recommendations but no joy. It will take me the better part of an hour to get everything back to working normally (for me, anyway), so I would like to know how to avoid this in the future. Thanks.

Just happened to me too. All my Adblock plus blocks have vanished. I don't even see the Block button anymore.


Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles {web link} I use an add-on that makes backups of my user profile, Just In Case. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Firefox.

Every now and then, open the profile folder and create a copy of the current profile as is to another location on your hard drive. This way you will have a backup.

If you do this each day, you will not lose much data. This should be done with Firefox Closed.

Note: In case you need to restore from these backups, you may need to overwrite old or corrupted files.
