The bird and the fox aren't talking after changing back to 2.*

Hi ho:

May not be an ubuntu question as such, but since there seems to be much 
talk on jumping back to a 2.* version of Firefox I'll give it a try.

Saved out my bookmarks and passwords. Pulled both entries for Firefox and 
the assortment of extensions. Put back v2.*. Had to kill off .mozilla 
completely and start clean. Reinstalling all the supporting cast (password, 
bookmarks, etc.) with out problem. By itself Firefox seems fine, but links 
in the addon windows in both the fox and the bird, and links within emails 
no longer respond. The change obviously broke something, but what?? Any 
ideas on how I might fix this?

Oh ya. Had 7.10. Moved to 8.04 without apparent problem. Guess I just got 
lucky about it liking my hardware setup. Decided to give the KDE4 desktop a 
try. Some quirks to learn about, but nothing is likely to be 
insurmountable. That's where my system stands at the moment
