[Solved] Macros lost after upgrade to 6.1.0.9

I installed 6.1.0.9 and all my custom macros have disappeared! Any idea where iMacros may have put them?

Okay, problem solved. I uninstalled/reinstalled the iMacros plug-in and my custom scripts magically returned....thankfully!

Cheers,

I am glad that the macros are back. This kind of headline always shocks me :)

iMacros never deletes anything during an upgrade.

I assume that the macro default path was (somehow?) changed during the upgrade. The uninstall/reinstall changed it back to the default path.

This happened to me as well; I could not even create a new macro. Upgrading a second time (reinstalling) did not help.

I had to completely uninstall the macro add-on through Firefox, then re-add it entirely. My custom macros were still present.
