I have an older browser, which I DO NOT want to update, as it's the last one that works with all my add-ons and bookmarks. But, even though I went in and checked the boxes to allow Studies, I am getting no information at all when I go to the about: studies page. I only see a box with, "What's this? Firefox may install and run studies from time to time. Learn more".

This has been going on for hours. No fix is showing up, much less installing, and my browser is utterly borked. Can I get the studies manually somewhere? Help would be appreciated.

Is there a fix for Firefox version 56.02 which would allow me to recover the usage of all my extensions and add-ons, INCLUDING Reminderfox?

I kept Firefox version 56.02 (on both my Win 10 laptop & Win 7 desktop) so I could still use Reminderfox, one of the features which made me prefer Firefox to other browsers. With the current issues over Mozilla's blocking of extensions/add-ons, and the only fix I'm aware of involving upgrading to the latest Firefox version, it doesn't seem there is any way forward that would allow me to continue with Firefox + Reminderfox.

Is there a known issue for the GUI not displaying pages correctly, in some cases I get like a split, and the two parts disply in the wrong order.

I have taken some screenshots to show what I look at every time I update to a version 57+ I did try updated versions as they became available, in case my problem had been fixed, but it gets so annoying that I roll back again.

The Image upload feature doesn't appear to be working here so I uploaded some screen grabs to Imgur.

Only displaying part of the page: https://i.imgur.com/9gsgekO.png https://i.imgur.com/FfwLP6b.png

Images and other page details disappear: https://i.imgur.com/s7W7Seg.png

Pages are split and do not display in one piece: https://i.imgur.com/l8FPFdF.png

It's not my graphics drivers or anything else, everything is up to date. I roll back to 56.0.2 (32-bit) and this solves the issue. I am having the same problems on two machines running Win7. Cheers, Keith

I'm sticking with an older version of Firefox, because i have a list of searchengines that i use. But i don't know them only by icon.

so i want if i click the searchbar, a LIST of my searchengines and not only icons. ( see picture i have uploaded )

way back you could in the about:config change the setting : browser.search.showOneOffButtons that did not work anymore, but then i got on this forum the tip to use CLASSICTHEMERESTORER, and there was indeed the option to get the classic search back :)

but NOW, with the latest Firefox.. this also does not work anymore :) So i'm back here for help, HELP!  :p

Thanks in advance, best regards, dinny

I am a developer of Firefox extensions and have had a Mozilla developer account for over 15 years. For some reason, I can no longer login to that account. When attempting to login, I get a message to "Confirm your account". The displayed email address is correct, but I never receive the conformation email. I've check my junk and trash folders and even have a filter setup to accept all emails from "accounts@firefox.com", but I still never get the conformation email. I tried setting up a new account and that works, but I cannot access my developer dashboard with the new account.

Firefox crashes about once a week. When it does, it resets as though it were a fresh install. My previous session, my "profile" and my new-tab page all go away. Yet somehow it retains my history and bookmarks.

This is on Windows 10. I can detect no common factors other then that it usually happens on a restart. As in, I shut the computer down and all is well; yet when I boot up next, firefox has reset. However it does NOT do it on every shut down because the system gets shut down every night. It's only once a week-ish.

Presumably this is really from Mozilla because I clicked on a "Dis-satisfied" query the other day - it's from "Madalina from Mozilla Support <invites@mailer.surveygizmo.com> ".

It has a link to start the survey, but the link does not work., so maybe it's bogus.
