Do you mean you had to reinstall some add-ons and change a couple of settings after the refresh? Or do you mean you did the refresh because these settings needed changing and refresh did that for you?


Thank you.

That, rjm, is the best question of the day. I was getting ahead of the game. My aim in asking the question was to know if doing this works on a MAC and is all right to do. In other words, I was getting some more education. But, yes, I'd want to know it was necessary. As dkf said, he had a reason. He knew what was wrong and that refresh would fix it.


One thing I do notice about Firefox is that many of the little problems seem to get fixed in time without me doing anything. I suppose that means others have reported the same issues and they get fixed at update time.



Thank you all for the reassurances.
