After upgrading all the quotes made using V2.0+ are missing?
The V3.0 quotes work just fine and clicking edit and apply changes on the posts where the missing quotes should be, restores them so apparently the old style quotes and the new cite have some issues.

You can add the CSS used for quotes in earlier versions to your forum.css.tmpl and rebuild the theme.

Cite and Quote both? Somehow that doesn't sound quite right. This is the reverse problem we had with Cite in the experimental themes after "Quote" became legacy.
The quotes are there, the borders etc. are just not defined; you have the same problem here as well. http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=160380&#msg_160380
All 3 times I encountered this anomaly was with older or experimental themes, on the 1st two I rebuilt the template sets and theme entirely (it was easier than trouble shooting) but on the 3rd I went into the forum CSS around line 207-214 and deleted the quote code:
 .quote {
	color: #444444;
	background: #FAFAFA;
	border: 1px solid #c2cdd6;
}


And replaced it with the Cite code (which is pretty much the opposite of what I did, originally when the experimental theme quotes did not show):
cite {
	/* quote titles */
	font-size: 9pt;
	font-weight: bold;
	margin-left: 20px;
	display: block;
		padding-left: 25px;
}


And it appears to have come out right, with the quotes displaying properly across the board as far as I can tell.

Don't forget to ensure the "Blockquote" is included.

blockquote {
	/* 	quote tags */
	color: #444444;
	background: #e3daca;
	border: 1px solid #e6cba3;
	margin: 8px 1px 0 20px;
	overflow: hidden;
	padding: 5px;
}

blockquote blockquote {
	/* 	nested quote tags */
	background-color: #ded0b4;
	margin: 8px 1px 0 10px;
}

blockquote blockquote blockquote {
	/* 	double nested quote tags */
	background-color: #ead9b8;
}


I will take a closer look tonight, to make sure the problem is resolved.
