Where Are The Addons For FireFox

To my surprise, the addons for my firefox are disabled.
I always use Firefox replace of IE, because I like its design and UI.
Today, I opened firefox generally, then it informed me it has an updated version. good! updated it automatically. Reopen it, and I found the addons except for Google Toolbar don't work. I went to the menu and clicked Addons menu item, I found all disabled addons can uninstall only.
I tried to uninstall one of the addons, then restart it. it seemed not work.
Why? If one doesn't wok, I believe that it isn't compatible with FireFox. However, there is no notice for us. Is it not compatible or other reason?

BTW, the firefox is version 2.0.0.6, and 2.0.0.4 before.

Updated: I did a research on it today. I first googled it and found nothing about it. Then I went to the profile document , is located at C:\documents and settings/yourname/application data/mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, I found the a file extensions.ini here. Then I opened file, the content is like below:

 [ExtensionDirs]
Extension0=C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\hrot9a3b.default\extensions\{C0D0F6D1-9FC9-4b0a-B485-D5E13AF40D51}


OK, explain it first. 
[ExtensionDirs]
is the extension directory section.
Extension0 is the zero extension.Extension1 is the 1st ,Extension2the 2nd ,...
 C:\Documents and Settings\ ...... is the place extensions locate

Good, I knew why only Google Toolbar is working, then I added the others extensions into it. it is working now!

Why the data is interrupted? Firefox's upgrade do it?
