I'm using the latest Iron version on Windows 10.


It might be due to improper configuration of setup. Just re-reconfigure your setting and try it again.

Maybe you have to scroll down a bit?


I'm scrolled all the way down, and there are still only 8 images.
Is this a setting that is configurable somewhere that I could check out? I came from Iron v39 directly to Iron v53.
Everything else is working great.

Any update here? This issue is VERY annoying. It occurred to me with every single update of Iron I did in the last month. Not just limited to one system because I got a new computer in the mean time.
On both computers Windows 7 Enterprise Edition SP 1 is installed. Is there any more information I can give you that would help to solve the issue?

Once again I just updated to the latest version of Iron and all extension are gone again...

What do you mean by "reconfigure your settings"?

This hasn't been a problem in older versions of Iron and is REALLY annoying, so could you please fix this? If you need more information, please tell me.

By downloading and installing the new version from your website. As far as I know there is no other option, or is there?

I have similar issue: after browser update all settings are reset to default values (language, file save path, themes, browser window size ...), but my extensions (only five - fast dial, uBlock origin, https everywhere, tampermonkey, gestures for google chrome), passwords and logins are kept. This applies only for install version. Portable version is fully OK.

Re : Extensions/settings lost after Iron update (55 to 56)

Postby Infinite New1 » Mon Feb 13, 2017 6:01 pm

Hi,

Updated from 55 to 56, lost all extensions (which are highly customized) and most of settings. I saw no warning on the download page for it. Applied the full install over the old one. Didn't know that there was a CRX update module (or why it is not already in the main build), don't know if it would have changed something.

My browser (like a lot of people) is the most important piece of software on my PC. Don't know what to do, don't want to pass the afternoon reinstalling and reconfiguring everything. Will "check" what I can do with the Program Files/AppData/Profile folders for now. Want to cry.

Please say if there is something to do quickly to fix that. Don't have a restore point either.
