FIREFOX UPDATED to version in another account in this computer. When I got to my account, I noticed no themes were working. They were in the addons list but they wouldn't work. The addons I used to have are also in the list but they aren't working, everytime I try to install an addon(whether or not I had it beforeor not) I get some sort of error. Help! I can't live without AdBlock plus and NoScript!

What happens when you go to Tools/Add-ons and click "find updates"?
What error messages are you receiving? The exact message(s) would help us understand the problem.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

something about error 203.

btw, I solved the problem - sort of. I deleted the whole Firefox folder from the Application Data folder and it worked, only I now need to reinstall every add-on, and my bookmarks are now missing :thumbsup: but hey, it worked!

IF that folder is still in your recycle bin, highlight the folder and go up to Edit in the toolbar, and MOVE it to a folder of your choice. If your old profile is there, you should be able to find your old bookmarks. It says "bookmarks" and has the FF logo on it. Just copy it into your new profile and you should get your bookmarks back. (Hopefully.)

If you've already started rebuilding your bookmarks, copy the new one someplace in case this doesn't work when you tell Windows to replace the new bookmarks with your old one. That way you can at least get the original one back.
