That's really weird :-?
Even deleting Firefox itself does not remove the user files which are
stored on a separate folder under the user's profile ("~/.firefox) so I
can't see why that happens to you... unless you are using a specific
profile for your user and after the update, you have to point firefox to
load that profile.
