This problem and a work-around is documented in bug - Bug 85549 - Personas lost upgrading from 4.3 to 4.4 . The Personas can be shown, both header and footer. The problem is the storing of the information. Each Personas theme now has its own folder for example /Gallery/Personas/Peter's Theme/ instead of all the Personas staying in the root /Gallery/Personas/ folder.
The brave can create a new folder, copy the Personas to the folder and then modify the .xcu file PersonasSettings fields to point to the chosen Personas (Themes) files. Always take a backup of the .xcu file first before any modification. Be aware, if you turn off the Theme TOOLS>OPTIONS>PERSONISATION> Default look do not use themes, the settings will be lost and you will need to modify the .xcu file again to restore the theme.

Thank you for the information....while I'm not thrilled with "bugs" in the app, it's good to find out the problem is not ME.
