Where are the Add Ons / Extentions
I have two PC's, home and work. Home is Ubuntu. I have no issues. Work is a W10 machine, now running FF 82.
The issue is since the last last W10, FF update: all the ententions are no longer visable in any bar. The extentions are still installed [I've checked] and are listed in "about:addons" as active, working, etc. Again, I've checked. But, I am not able to see the icons in the Tool bar. This is actually quite annoying now as one is used to clear history, another for clearing cookies etc.
This is only impacting W100 FF, not Ubuntu. How do I get the Add ons back.

It’s possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.
Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.
Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.
Windows: Show Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
Linux: Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Directory. To its right press the button Open Directory.
Delete all extensions* files and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.
New files will be created when required.
After, restart Firefox.
See "Corrupt extension files":
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You will have to approve the updating one last time.
I'm not sure what the outcome was supposed to be, but essentially, everything was deleted. I've now re-installed everything, and they are working, however, is this the fix: remove / re-install ?
Sometimes, a problem comes up. Most of the time no problem. My instructions should have made Firefox reinstall the extensions.
