Sorry to hear about your experience, mine is actually quite good, overall.

I just installed it after a hard drive crash (and a reformat/clean 
install of my system). I managed to save my old firefox settings. 
When I re-installed, it was 90% what I had before. I can use my 
web-developper toolbar, no script,  customize google, grease monkey, 
tamper data, live http header, view dependencies and a variety of others.

I cannot use Adblock. I miss that one! Worse yet, I can't use 
Firebug, which was one of my most used, but I expect that the 
developers will come out with a new version.

In short, when having restored my profile, I was 90% up to normal, it 
even looked the same and the address bar works the same, but there is 
the 10% new browser hiccup.

No one has ever regretted backing up -- least of all, I.
