Will it be OK to upgrade my Firefox browser from Rel 72 to latest Rel 100 in one step ? OS is Mac OS X Monterrey 12.3..1 Or should I do 1 or more intermediate upgrades to be safe ?

FWIW, I've had enough problems upgrading from OSx Mojave to Monterrey. I am leery of the huge jump from FF 72 to 100.

All advice most welcome.

From a non-programmer who used Chrome a lot until recently:

If I hit Cntrl-H like I would in Chrome, I get a frustratingly limited view. Why does it not show timestamps? So I spend time searching and find out about the Library window, and Control+Shift+H. Okay, so that's at least making it possible to see timestamps. Typing this right now, I don't remember if I had to manually add a column to see timestamps, but if I did Jesus Christ. I nearly installed some other software (MZHistoryView) before finding out about Control+Shift+H, just to see timestamps.

Also, every time I press the awkward Control+Shift+H hotkey, it resets the view to "Today". I don't know why it wouldn't default to "Just keep scrolling for as many days as you want". If I search for a specific site immediately after opening the window, then it includes entries for more days than just today. But before searching, it cuts off my view to just today. What's the point of that? Who would want such a restriction as the default view?

Hello Not responding Not responding Not responding  ??? This version of Firefox ( Firefox Setup 60.0.1 ) I installed 5 minutes ago, and it is the first day I use this computer. I don't know why this problem is common with a Firefox ? Sometimes, perhaps it is due to the computer ( not good performance ) But this a very modern laptop I use now. Then suppose it is due to the computer, why then it does not occur with Google Chrome browser ? Not responding Not responding Not responding It is very annoying If this will not recover, I no longer use this browser never and ever The browser is new to go and do troubleshooting or refresh even no add-ons it has ( none I installed) Even to do a slight touch it becomes irritating. If it is due to viruses , I have one good activated program ( Eset internet security )_ Moreover, I yesterday tested my computer with the anti- malware ( new copy ) ! So, what is the reason I see or think this browser can never be protected and as I think it sends more cookies to us the users One can go to library and read books or search about not to come to internet and use any browser Tow days ago my laptop ( Not this one ) became damaged and the smart hard disk exposed to a sever hurt and I left out ( cannot be repaired ) and the reason of course using the internet It is a new method to track users sending them malicious viruses just one presses on I accept to the cookies These cookies as much as I know are spy -tracking viruses So , what to do all pages behave the same manner. I excuse for the long post, but it also my right to complain Give me a solution to ( not responding ) for Firefox only.

I tried to post this question in the correct forum, but there is no option to choose Firefox Send as a product when asking a question. The Firefox Send forum at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/firefox-send appears to be empty and I didn't see a way to post there directly.

An email account at my school district was recently compromised and had sent out 122 malicious phishing links via Firefox Send before we stopped it and took control of the account back. I have the list of malicious Firefox Send links and I'd like to share them with the proper people at Mozilla so something can be done.

The files are all password-protected archives (I know the passwords) that contain malicious VBS files which have their code heavily obfuscated. I haven't yet tried to figure out what the VB scripts do - I was hoping a cyber security professional would be willing to take a look.

Someone please contact me so I can at least try to get the files taken down.

If I were to make a feature request for Firefox Send, it would be to add a button to report a file as malicious.

Sometimes, when I open the browser, ALL content is not drawn to the window size, as shown in the screenshot. In this case, mouse events are tracked as if everything was drawn correctly, i.e., to the entire size. Only resizing the window helps. How to fix this problem? This happens not only in KDE, but also in GNOME. Clearing the profile didn't help. Running without extensions too. Such a problem still sometimes occurs. OS: ArchLinux https://imgur.com/a/X7Ue9Al

Firefox Fails to Retain Tabs and Bookmarks During Upgrades

Firefox upgrades fail to save Tabs and Bookmarks. Consequently, this is not a genuine upgrade but instead is the implementation of a new client. Previously, Firefox upgrades saved both Tabs and Bookmarks. Unfortunately recent upgrades no longer perform this function.

Requiring users to manually (dangerously) search through past Profiles and hopefully select the correct profile to launch in an attempt to restore these two features is burdensome to users. Additionally, when one of many past profiles is selected for launch, Tabs are not restored. Previous Bookmarks are restore under different headings that require new navigation clicks to access.

The first attempt to upgrade installed Firefox 72. After reverting back to the older version and attempting a second upgrade, the new launch was Firefox 100b. Go figure.

As I write this message in a newly upgraded Version 72, I am uncertain as to whether or not to set this as the default version out of fear of not being able to eventually get my Tabs from my older version. So I will revert back to the older version in the hope that I might eventually learn how to defeat this current Firefox Fault.

Thank you for the help and links to instructions to fix this problem that were sent. The steps provided were not clear enough to follow without repeatedly failing to fix the problem. IE: "Restore Session" options did not exist; Tabs were not restored when Bookmarks were restore in a completely modified user interface; the means to determine which of dozens of Profiles to select was not provided.

This 'feature' annoys me so much. One, because its has no benefit and two, after FF75 it's not possible to disable it.

I like to discuss why someone thinks one click select all is useful. It's more common to edit your url/search input instead of type a complete new one. Selecting a part of your input or just input the cursor at a specific location gets really disturb by this 'feature'. In 30 years i use computers, this behavior have never been useful and when needed to select all, the click-swipe-release action is even as easy. Beside this, the decades old CTRL-A function is even as fast and useful.

More and more of this behavior is pushed at users on the web and i really don't see why. Can someone tell me why this behavior is invented? And how to disable it in newer FF versions?
