Since this new version got updated without my consent, i have lost my add-ons which annoys me greatly.

I am getting pop-up adds again, where as the version i was running previously they did not show up.

I had my old version customised just the way i like it, and i want it back. I am unphased about "bugs, glitches and security issues" as i trust my anti-virus to do its job. I would just like the version i had back the way i had it. This new version is not good and looks like google chrome, and if i wanted chrome, i would download it

I have Windows XP Professional English SP3 installed in an Oracle Virtual Machine. For some reason or another, Internet Explorer stopped browsing to pages having SSL (https). I went to several web pages on the internet. They said this and that, but I managed to narrow it down to the SSL part. I recently received an update to Oracle Virtual Box, so that can also be the culprit. I also have another XP Professional English SP3 virtual machine with no additional software installed besides antivirus software, and in that machine, I had installed a pretty fresh version of Mozilla Firefox, so I tested it, and there was no problem at all surfing, but Internet Explorer refused to display the web page. This is why I would like to have a link to the above mentioned version of Firefox, as you stated in another thread that that particular version was the last one to be supported by Windows XP.


Thanks in advance! Thomas J. Ekman SWEDEN

I wish to undertake a removal & then a subsequent reinstallation of FF. However, I wish to retain the browser history _as is_ (though not in JSON form) & import this to the newly reinstalled version.

Can I do this? If so, how?

I've migrated my WIN 7 desktop profile to the Microsoft Surface Pro (Win 8). I copied the profile over, and everything seemed to come over fine, except for my add-ons. None of them came over. Are they stored somewhere else, or do they need to be downloaded again? TIA for any help.

I have just installed FF 17. I am running Win 8 Pro 64bit, Eset Smart Security 5. After installing FF 17, I went to the add-ons page. I got the following error message:

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to services.addons.mozilla.org, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

         Normally, when you try to connect securely,

sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.


         What Should I Do?
         
           If you usually connect to

this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.


services.addons.mozilla.org uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Now this is your site. Why the error. Mozilla does not even trust their own page? I had this issue with FF 16, but found that NOT installing the auto-update feature got rid of this error message.

Now I have been all over the web Googling this error message, and there are pages on pages, but no Final, nor concrete solution. Even here on your Support forum loads of questions, yet not one answer.

I have seen: 1. Make sure my pc clock is right. It is. 2.Turn off SSL in Eset. Not a chance. Why do I have a firewall for? 3. Choose I know the risks, and make an exception. If I do that I will have to make exception for the entire web. Not a chance.

I didn't have this issue until version 16, any version prior to this worked like a charm.

So what in sam hill have you done to FF, to cause this? I think it about time this is resolved so your users don't have to muck around with their security apps.

Please answer my question and let me know how to downgrade 20 to 19.0.2...

Thank you very much!!!

I’m trying to run a program that requires silverlight and newer versions of Firefox don’t allow plug ins from silverlight. I have found a list of older versions of Firefox on Mozilla’s website but Once I click on a specific version several downloadable links pop up. Do I need to only download one link or several? Once I download the link do I have to move it to my applications or somewhere else to gain access to it?

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

I was running just "regular" Firefox on my Windows laptop. Yesterday my help desk had me upgrade to Firefox Extended Support Release to install a corporate email security certificate. I did not know when I installed this version of Firefox that it would overwrite my existing browser, and when it did, I lost all of my add-ins, extensions, bookmarks, etc. I'm hoping to be able to restore my old profile with all of the existing data I had. If I have to "downgrade" to regular Firefox I think that's fine since I just needed the ESR to install the security cert and that's complete now.

I looked on the about:profiles page and I have two other profiles, default and june19 (I presume the latter is from June 2019?), but I don't know how to determine which one is the preferred one. When I clicked Launch profile in new browser, it instructed me to create a new profile to protect my information and I hesitated to do that because I'm trying to restore an old profile, not create a new one. In case you can't tell, I'm not an advanced software user, so give instructions like you would to a 5-year-old or your grandma... lol. Thanks in advance!
