Every time I start Firefox I get the same remark that Firefox can send information to Mozilla and a button to Choose what I would like to share with Mozilla. When pressing this button I can select to use Crash reporter and a Firefox status report. How can I prevent Firefox to keep asking me this question?

I was happily running firefox 31 with adblock plus & element hider but the dashboard with the latest update of Square refused to work and wanted me to run firefox 38. So I downloaded that and installed it, and while it worked marginally better with the Square dashboard, it did not work well at all with lots of other things.. images wouldn't display, Twitter didn't work, tabs froze, etc. So I downloaded FF 31 again (the update seems to have deleted it) and installed that. The images show again, other things work fine.. BUT! It won't let me use Adblock Plus! The addons pages show it as compatible with FF 31, but when I try to install it, it gets halfway through and says it is incompatible.

Do I have a corrupted profile? Do I need to clean up the deletion of FF 38 and reinstall 31? I'm on dialup and all of these things will be really slow.. and I don't want to update to any newer versions until I can go back cleanly to where I was.

I hope someone can explain how to fix this; I'm scared to browse without the security of adblocking.

Thanks in advance Elliot

I am currently running Firefox 31.0 on Solaris 10 SPARC systems. My e-mail provider has begun to get snarky about my browser being unsupported. My formerly reliable source, /unixpackages.com/packages/mozilla no longer provides versions for Solaris 10 sparc newer than Firefox 31.0. Is there a source for downloading the current version of Firefox (45.0.1, I believe) for Solaris 10 sparc systems? (I tried the version for Linux 64-bit. Does not fly.) Thank you for your assistance.

I have done a fresh install and copied over my profile. Yahoo has become the default search. How do I change this please?

I actually tried different versions of Firefox but cannot find any option to change it.

One article said to change it in my preferences tab. But neither version has one - I am using a menu bar and there is no preferences option.

Your assistance would be appreciated.

Hello All,

Running Firefox 31.8.0 for OpenSUSE 11.4 (*which is the highest version available for my OS)

A few months back I had updated Firefox (*I installed a patch that was available this morning to go to version 31.8), but I can't remember from what version to what version, or if that was even the root cause of the issue when I updated it sometime in 2015. But, ever since that I have been having issues adding a "Permanent" Exception for any of our Internal https sites/servers that have an expired certificate.

So for example, I go to this one server https://55.55.55.55/ and when I do, I get a warning that: "This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to 55.55.55.55:8443, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure...."

So I click "Add Exception" and then in the Pop-up I leave "Permanently store this exception" checkbox checked, and I click "Confirm Security Exception" and when I do nothing happens at all... If I were to then uncheck the "Permanently store this exception" checkbox and click on "Confirm Security Exception" again, this time it works. But, it's only storing a temporary exception, the permanent checkbox used to work at some point a while back but now its not...

However, if I re-open Firefox and choose my secondary profile called "temp" and load that instead of my regular profile "default", and I naviagte to the same page and Confirm Security Exception with the Permanent checkbox checked, it works perfectly.

Is there something wrong with my Profile? I have some much under this Profile I really don't want to loose it.

If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to respond. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in Advance, Matt

I recently started using linux and with it came iceweasel. I created a new email account and wanted to change the one i was using to sync iceweasel (firefox).

But i'd like to know, what really happens when you make a mistake like this.

I'm still using rev 31. It's the last version that's compatible with the add on, 'Multicolumn Bookmarks 1.5' I have numerous books marks collected over the years, and the single column format is frustrating and not helpful.

Request that Fire Fox provide a current version that is compatible with 'MultiColumn Bookmarks 1.5', or provide a multi-column navigable favorites display as an option in a near future Fire Fox program revision.

Sincerely,

Arnold Stone

I have Acrobat Reader DC version installed on MacBook Pro, but, everytime firefox tried to open pdf file, it asks me to install Adobe Acrbat NPAPI plug-in, and when I allow/remember, it just gives me blank screen. All the search results suggest that I fixed it by going to the Firefox Preferences, Application tab, search PDF, or Portable Document, for the Content Type, and enable the Adobe Acrobat NPAPI Plug-in. BUT, my search for PDF returns nothing. All I have is Adobe Acrbat FDF document, What should I do to fix this problem in this case?

I had a Firefox crash twice in a row so lost my Restore Previous Session option (greyed out). I had a lot of important tabs open! Looking around the forum I think the data on the lost tabs is in sessionstore.js (I have sessionstore.bak too). Both contain a lot of text which looks like it has the information Firefox needs. However when I do File>Open File>filename it opens in a tab as text - how do I gt Firefox to use the data to restore my tabs? Windows7 Firefox 31.0 Thanks for any help...

I've been posting to the mozilla forums for over a decade, but when I tried to log in this afternoon the site didn't recognize either my username or my password (it didn't specify which).

I tried to change my password but I never received the confirmation email.

So I've just created a "new" account using my old email address but with a new user name and password so that I could post this query.

What happened to my old account?
