Recently when i entered password for my windows profile...it said something ..like.....Windows cant able to find the profile....I dont know what happened. May be if someone in my home did something. I have no idea.

Totally there r 2 profiles in my pc.
So i deleted that windows profile which i was using and i created another one for me.

Now when i opened firefox, it was in its default theme. I had different theme before. No themes and extensions where showing in add ons which i had before. In documents and settings i dragged the mozilla folder from that old profile folder to my new profile older.
Now under addons, the themes and extensions which i had is showing. But when i click use theme...and when it says restart firefox and after that ..Its not applying...I tried multiple times.

Extensions & themes are not working. I think..may be there is some other folder which should be dragged to my new windows profile,im not sure about that
OR once again i have to download them ?

It seems you've fixed your problem, but I thought I would provide some enlightenment on the issue anyway.

Managing profiles

When you created a new account on the computer, your Firefox profile was left on the other account.
