many of my extensions get preserved when installing a new Mozilla; some do not. i belive it has to do with WHERE the extension gets installed... globally into the program folder = available to all profiles, but disappears on re-install; or install extension into profile folder & it saves it when installing a new version, but is only visible to that one profile. some seem to install locally to the profile folder, others globally to the program folder, and SOME nice ones :) seem to ask you WHICH install location you wish (a few even tell you what the difference is, advantages/drawbacks of each) at the time you are installing them. p.s. i use mozilla suite, though i believe firefox acts same way (could be mistaken here.. anyone?)
