Resetting Firefox to its default state!

  spuds 11:52 14 Sep 2013

Over the past day or so, Firefox informed me that 'it was running slow' (which I hadn't really noticed) and referred me to a troubleshooting help support page.

It was a suggestion that I 'reset Firefox to its original default state', which is simply clicking on a tab in the help/support section.

My question is if I was to do this, what would I lose and what would I gain. On the help information there are possibilities of what might be lost.

I was just wondering if anyone had used this facility, and thought it worthwhile, considering Firefox states that this programme appears to be running slow?.

I've not used that facility, but to answer the Q "what would I lose and what would I gain" it seems hit and miss (no guarantees) click here

Thanks guys for the responses.

lotvic - I was redirected to that page by Firefox, hence my request about anyone's own experiences for doing a reset, before attempting to do so.

I could try, but don't want to lose to many things, if at all likely?.

Firefox seems to think its running slow, but I haven't really noticed that?.

Think that I will tick this resolved.
