Using OS X Yosemite on my Mac. Firefox "suggested" I needed a refresh. I did and now my add ons and extensions are all gone. Trying to find a solution to get them back. Here are some notes that may help get an answer since I've done some reading on the subject here:

I do not use Time Machine I do not have an Old Firefox Data folder on my desktop

If I can't restore them, is there a way to see which ones I had prior to the refresh so I can just download them again?

Thanks for any help.

Unless you have a record or backup somewhere . . . . . . .

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.


These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.
