They were never present in the Ubuntu edition of Firefox, for obvious reasons (you would need to run Firefox as root in order to update it). If you download upstream Firefox you'll get them.

I would upgrade to 12.04... if I thought it was an upgrade.
That way you'll get the (archaic, IMHO) desktop environment you love, with four more years of support for the underlying software. And later software, too.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
