Booted up my computer for the first time today, started up Firefox, got the ol' "Hey, we updated ourselves to version eight million five hundred thousand sixty four or whatever" page. Brought them back to see only "Most Visited" and "Getting Started." Dug through Bookmarks, all empty. There is no "Old Firefox Data" on my Desktop, and there are no additional profiles to choose from beyond the default.
