-so, now you are in the old 34 ?
-you could save your current profile as backup then update again to 35, reset completely FF and reinstall ABP. If does not work you can use the profile backuped to replace the new one.
(also you can use what I said above to save/sync your addons/bookmarks etc)
- I can't save my custom filters as of yet because I can not access ABP in Firefox 35 at all. Clicking on filter preferences in the Add ons options does not work.
- I am still using 35 as of now. I have yet to do anything since updating to 35, seeing ABP was no longer working and coming here.
- So I could go to 34 and everything would work again? Then backup my ABP custom filters. Update back to 35 which would be corrupted again?. Then have to Reset FF 35. Reinstall ABP, and everything else. Copy over my backed up ABP filters and numerous other things.
- The sync link sounds like it would just save my add ons correct? I only have ABP, NoScript, HTTPSEverywhere and Flash. I am hoping I can easily backup NoScript, as I have custom white/black lists for it that would be a nightmare to even try to do again manually if I even could, and then import it back again. Never done that before but I hope that is simple and effective. HTTPS Everywhere is no worries as it would just take a minute. If I can manage to access ABP again to make a backup of my custom filters and restore them again that would be a great help. Flash should be fairly straight forward.
But, I am most concerned by things that it sounds, at least from my cursory knowledge from reading your sync link, that syncing wouldn't save for me. Things like, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/re ... t-problems
, about:permissions (custom allow/block cookies exceptions), modified preferences, added search engines, DOM storage, security settings, download actions, plugin settings, toolbar customizations, about:config (I copied all of the bold entries presuming those meant ones changed from default).
Is there any way to know what caused the issue so that it can be prevented in the future?
Lastly, can I just use system restore to go back before updating to 35 and then somehow install FF 35 this time in a way that wouldn't cause the ABP/profile corruption?
