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. Frank Marion lists at frankmarion.com Keep the signal high.
