Updating from 4.2.2 to 4.2.3:
the footer disappeared completely.
We had custom code in it, displaying a webcounter (see code below) and also a (commercial = paid) plug-in with a messenger bar in there.

(the commercial version is current and updated)

I’m really not sure why when you’re updating you’re losing widgets. What process are you using to update the theme? I’ve tested the servers and other sites too and the footer remains intact ( no code was changed with regards to the footer either ).
Can you check it’s still enabled in Theme Options > Footer.
maybe “footer” is not the correct word.
i turned the footer back on in the “theme options” settings, but this is not it.
It still does no longer show the web counter code nor the messenger bar.
It must have something to do with the theme update, because that is precisely the time it stopped working when we updated the theme to 4.2.3
