Hello Nicholas,

When I press the button "Go to the front of the site" the page displayed is the page of the original site instead of the page of the new site This is not good

When I press the button "Access the administration of the site", the displayed page is the page of the new site. Its good.

Yep, it cannot send you to the old site :) The links in those buttons are relative to where Kickstart lives in so, by necessity, they will open the new site where you are restoring to. In case you actually do get the old site it'd mean that one of the following is amiss:
  • A redirection set up in the .htaccess file of your site
  • The live_site URL in configuration.php points to the old site (you can change that during restoration)
  • A third party extension, e.g. a SEF component or an SEO plugin, is configured with the old site's URL.

I know that none of that applies in your case; you just misread the site URL and thought you were redirected to the wrong site. I am just typing a more complete reply for any people who might stumble upon this ticket in the future.
