Computer lost power, when turned fire fox on after it I had no plug-ins?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My dog accidentally moved the plug where the computer is connected and disconnected it, everything is running was running ok but when I turned it back on and open firefox I lost all my plug-ins, I tried restarting fire fox and the computer but they still dont appear. Is there a way to find them or restore them or atleast find their name?

2 things to try.

1. Make sure Firefox isn't opening up in Safe Mode.

2. Change your folder settings in Windows Explorer so that hidden files are displayed.

-Go into your Firefox profile folder and look for:

extensions.ini
extensions.cache
extensions.rdf

-Cut and paste those into a different location and try to start up Firefox and see if it fixes the missing plug-ins. If not you can just move them back in case it causes something weird.

How do I make sure firefox is not running in safe mode?
The add-ons configuration window from firefox has no addons listed
I dont find any of those files on my computer or in firefox's folder

Sorry ran to the store real quick.

Did you make sure to go to the properties and tell it show hidden files? If so, in the search box in the corner of Windows Explorer type *.rdf

And look for extensions.rdf, right-click and "Open File Location". The other 2 files should be in the same location.

To make sure it's not starting up in safe-mode, right-click the icon/shortcut that you use to start it up and go to properties. Click on the shortcut tab and make sure the string in the Target box doesn't say -safe-mode

There are a bunch of rdf files in the firefox folder in program files but none say extension.xxx, they are all install.rdf and a localstore.rdf and mimeTypes.rdf

It should be in a different area, not inside the program files folder.

For example, here's mine:

C:\\Users\\<Login Name>\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profile s\\<randomstring>.default\\

AppData is a hidden folder so if you don't have hidden stuff set to be shown it'll hide everything contained in it from being searched for.

I just noticed that my Windows Explorer search is kinda funky when I try to do *.rdf so you might want to manually click through until you get to your folder.
