    Yeah. I woke up this morning and went to go log onto the web, using the one and only true browser. But it did something weird... it aske me if I wanted to set it as my default browser. It already was, so I told it yes. When I got into Firefox, it had reverted to its original theme, and I had to set it back to Noia Extreme. Even weirder, the little search bar at the top doesn't have ANY search engines installed in it. And my MouseGestures plugin still works, but it doesn't show the lines... (although I can fix that) and half of my bookmarks were gone.

    Anyway, I seem to have a strange case of FF reverting to its original state. Any ideas on why it did that, and how to prevent it from happening again?

    Sounds like your profile became corrupt. Check in your profile folder for a folder: bookmarksbackups. There should the backups with dates for your bookmarks.
    When you get everything like you want, you need to backup your profile incase this happens again.

    Well.. it isn't there. It's alright, it's not that big a deal.
