Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

I transferred the whole profile from a perfectly working 2.0.0.14 installation to a new machine and installed 3.0rc2.
Bookmarks were imported correctly, but personal settings (like allowed noscript-sites, or even worse, all saved passwords!) were gone

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove 2.0.0.14
2. install 3.0rc2
3.
Actual Results:  
All passwords gone

Expected Results:  
All personal settings and passwords are there like before
The installer does not touch profiles. Over to General for triage
Component: Installer → General

Before I forget, additional search engines were lost as well.

If we just wait long enough, most problems are solved by themself.
I assume it working now
