Firefox 89.0.2, windows 10 pro with latest updates

I had trouble with two sites - they were displaying the mobile view instead of the desktop view. I looked at the 'general.useragent.override' string in about:config. It was set to "Windows". I changed it to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT x.y; rv:10.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0 and then the sites displayed correctly.

But now, duckduckgo and google are displaying strangely (perhaps they are showing the mobile version of the website?? Beats me.)

There are 3 other useragent config variables in about:config  : dom.push.userAgentID 66cb7374724c47149c50bf2c98c7f97c general.useragent.compatMode.firefox false useragentswitcher.version 0.7.3

(Plus, there are 4 'devtools' variables.)

Are those correct? Am I missing some? What else should I look at in order to fix duckduckgo and google?

Thanks!

PS: duckduckgo and google display correctly in Chrome. But I do not want to use Chrome.

PPS: I uploaded screenshots showing what google looks like on Firefox and on Chrome.

I am still having to use my old winxp, and it was running fine the other day. When I got home that night, I had lost the ability to use FF, I couldn't get a browser to come up at all, and finally had to resort to an old version of IE to get into the FF site to try to find out what happened. The msg. about 'using an older version,update now' kept popping up, although mine hadn't been that old.

I finally got a VERY old version of FF to upload, but have lost all of my bookmarks. Every time I try to update to the latest version (3 times now), the update gets about 2/3 of the way through, then stops, with an error msg. Because I am on dial-up (no choice in our rural hills), it has been extremely frustrating, with the update download taking almost 5 hours each time. None of the articles has provided the info about why the upload failed. Any ideas about the failure to update?

I interrupted an auto update which caused all bookmarks and history to be missing

For the 1st time ever after not long after I renewed my Norton Internet Security Software, I wanted to open up Firefox and it would automatically start update process window which I would use task manager to stop it cause my windows xp laptop doesn't have memory to spare (This all happened in a 2 day span.)

Today, I can't open it up at all and instead every time I get a XULRunner window saying, " Error: Platform version '50.0.2' is not compatible with minVersion >= 50.0.1 maxVersion <= 50.0.1" with a Ok Button. In my control panel it states that I have FireFox 50.0.0. Also, I can't same window when I try to use FireFox Safe Mode.

After googling, I found out too many new files got mixed up with old files, so I copied my current profile folder and then uninstalled and re-installed Firefox using the Firefox Installer than has been saved in my computer. But, YouTube vids are lagging and buttons are missing and different address bar font.

Also, all my bookmarks are missing except for recent bookmarks list found under Bookmarks in toolbar and all History missing. I tried to restore my bookmarks by having Firefox access one of my dated BookmarksBackUps files, but I get a pop up window saying "incorrect file type". In my Current Profile folder file format of bookmark backups folder is .jsonlz4, but in my Old Profile Folder Copy only the first file's format is .json.

I tried out and old copy of my profile folder by deleting contents of my current profile and pasting the old copy. This brought back what I was browsing in the past and my bookmarks, but I know I'm still missing 6 months worth.

After more googling, When I went to looking for Places.sqlite corrupt file in my current profile folder and to compare with that old profile folder copy that I had, I swear the old copy only had 1 file starting with Places.sqlite . And so, I deleted from my current profile folder Places.sqlite-shm and Places.sqlite-wal file which brought back History, but none of my bookmarks. Then I noticed for the 1st time that all my current and old copy Profile folders has "Telemetry.FaliedProfileLock " Text File.

Hi,

I had to reinstall my operating system on Mac (snow leopard) and I did not export my bookmarks.

I completely wiped out the memory without having time machine operating.

So, there is no way of restoring my bookmarks in any of the standard ways. I read all of the online threads on this already and none of them is close to what I am experiencing.

Is there a way to recover my bookmarks?

Thanks,

I loaded firefox 40.0.3 on HP laptop running windows 10 and default browser was Microsoft Edge. When firefox starts it will not load starting page I set up in the tools and also made firefox my default browser. Firefox will not load any websites and will always just a blank tab. Is there anything in windows 10/Microsoft edge that prevents firefox from running correctly. I have removed firfox and went back to Edge and that works fine.

I am using Firefox ESR version for my organization. I am not able to upload files to a web based COTS product. I had no issues in ESR v 24.1.1. Is there a setting that I can use or something I'm missing? I have seen that this was an issue in the home use version, but not sure if it will be fixed in the ESR version.

My web pages are built with JSP + javascript + AJAX, so a little dynamic when loading a page (it is NOT a static HTML text page).

As a common practice, when users visits my website, they can click on a hyperlink to open another webpage. When they want to go back, they can click the browser's BACK button that will bring them back to where they were.

What happened to the firefox is that when its default CACHE runs out, it will display:

Document Expired This document is no longer available. The requested document is not available in Firefox'x cache. ... [Try Again]


The general solution is that I can go to the Options page to either increase the CACHE limit ot clean up the CACHE.

But for a public user, they either do not know what to do or assume that my website has problem!

Besides, all the other browsers worked fine, which include IE (8, 9, 10, and 11), Chrome, Firefox 10.0.7 for SUSE Linux, and Safari. It is the newer versions of Firefox that is failing.


So my I suggest that Firefox remove its caching limitation features, instead, either using the feature implemented in the older version (of Firefox), or make it match those browsers such as IE, Chrome and Safari.

Firefox was used to be user friendly.


Thanks

yes I have everything up to date, last versions of everything

I thought it was flash from that abominable company adobe but many times I'm not even on a page with flash elements on it...
