Hi,

I don't know what's happening, I was surfing. Then after a while, I noticed that my usercripts working with greasemonkey disappeared.
Now, all my add-ons disappeaed although there are still on my profiles folder.

How can I re-enable all my add-ons and scripts ?

This is the inside of my extension ini file:
[ExtensionDirs]

[ThemeDirs]
Extension0=C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}.xpi

[MultiprocessIncompatibleExtensions]

Need your help to fix it, thank you.

at first i thought the extensions.json in profile is damaged.
but now i think some cleaning program has done his work well.

no firefox problem.

>> {972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}.xpi

default firefox theme, regular

if the folder is gone you can do nothing except installing from scratch.
look for the cleaning tool you use.

@Brummelchen:

What do you mean by 'installing from scratch.' ?

'look for the cleaning tool you use', what to do ?

this one
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\

is NO extension folder.

extension put here

open about:support in addressbar then click on open profile folder and look for \extensions\
( %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile_name>\extensions\ )

>> 'installing from scratch.'

all new!
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/

>> 'look for the cleaning tool you use', what to do ?

i dont know what you have installed - ccleaner, tuneup, glary or similar - all crappy software.

I was talking about %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile_name>\extensions, this folder and not, the one appeared in the Program Files.

>> 'installing from scratch.', you give me a link corresponding to addons, but you didn't explain about 'installing from scratch.'

I have Baidu Cleaner that only works on demand. I haven't made a clean since a long time, that's the reason I don'"t understand why this extensions folder disappeared.

Yes, 'extensions' folder disappeared but all the xpi files are still on my profile folder

So...

Profile_folder/extensions/ does not exist?
But your extensions are now in Profile_folder/ itself?

If so, simply "install" (drag them into a browser window) the extensions (again) from there.
