Unlike other Desktops that try to reuse their old configuration files
(Xfce changes their 'standard' setting config files from time to time.
You (the user) should have been warned to backup you old ones and check
your settings. Also, It has been a while and I can not recall when, they
also moved two (I think it was two) config and the system reads, and
uses the new ones. You (the user) should have been warned about that too.

I *do not know* if Fedora GUI's warn you (the user) but there is/are
warning on the CLI.

Nothing is broken.  :-)  Probably just changed or moved. Look for the
same name in a different place close to the old one.
