Firefox Settings, Extensions, etc. gone

I had some problems updating Firefox, so I created a topic here. After updating Firefox, I tried to get the RoboForm form-filler, and it worked fine in IE, but everytime I opened Firefox, RoboForm told me there was an error and Firefox made me close it. After 3 tries, I tried uninstalling another extension that I thought might be causing (one that blocks all javascript except for those on a list). I restarted Firefox, and found that all my settings, bookmarks, extensions, etc. were gone. Does anybody know why this happened and how/if I can get my settings?

I just remembered, after the third time I restarted, I was asked which profile I would like to use for Firefox. I had the choice of Default, or to create a new one. I chose to create a new one. Could this be the problem, and if it is, how can I fix it?

Changing profiles could definitely be the problem. To get the profile manager back. Make sure firefox is closed. Then run "firefox.exe -p" and try selecting default to see if you get your extensions back.

That was the problem. Thanks!!!

About RoboForm:
I read on Firefox's website that RoboForm has a new adapter that fixes it, but wasn't yet published on the Firefox extensions website.
