My firefox just updated and I have been inundated with this 'New Tab Controls' Experience which seems to have disabled my set custom home page for new tab opens. I still the page I want to open set in browser.newtab.url in about:config, but the "New Tab Controls" experience is overriding it, showing me a blank page with a toolbar on the right allowing me to choose either a blank page or showing my top sites.

Last Pass. E-Web, and XMarks add-ons disabled on my PC using windows 10. My Mac uses Last Pass, E-Weband XMarks and it is still working. Why are these add ons disabled on the PC and not the MAC. I used these everyday and if Firefox will continue to disable these three very important add-ons I will use another browser.

Just refreshed and now have the latest "tab" format in place... but I don't like it!

I get the whole "tile" concept, but can I please turn back to opening a NewTab directly to about:home? I'm a shortcut junkie, and having to open a new tab, then select a tile is going to be a pain.

And before you ask, YES, I have previously made the about:config changes manually, and YES, I did verify that it still shows the value for newtab = about:home.

Help!

Following latest update to this beta version java has failed completely. I noticed when I wanted to access a secure site which uses a Java plugin to start a remote desktop. On starting, it should ask if I want to run the Juniper Setup Applet, which is a Java applet. I dont get this any more on 41.0b1.

I have a backup machine running 40.0 and comparing the production and backup machine I note that the update to 41 has stripped out several addons including the Java Platform SE 8 U51. On the backup machine running 40.0 the site works correctly and the java test sites noted below work correctly.

Reinstalling Java didnt fix it and starting Firefox in safe mode didnt fix it. The site was already specified in the add-ons and popup exceptions.

Trying to verify Java at https://www.java.com and at www.test-java.com both show that Java is not installed or enabled whereas in fact it is - it is now just completely blocked in Firefox.

On my backup machine, I didnt manage to stop the auto update to 41.0b1 and once that had happended Java was broken on this machine too.

Some security is good but at this rate I might as well turn off the PC for complete security!

Any ideas?

I noticed what "Bookmark all tabs" feature stopped working at one point (in fact, Crating Folders from Bookmark Tab menu was not working either). I found the cause - Tab Mix Plus. Uninstalled - everything is back to normal. But I miss Tab Mix features - Duplicate tab, open closed tabs, etc.

What can I do? Is there a way to troubleshoot this issue?

My recent migration to Windows 10 went without a hitch. Then Firefox had upgrades and security updates. In this process all add-ons were disabled and cannot be activated. I get a script issue notification occasionally. Also Private Window won't work. Are these issues likely to be resolved soon or do I have to take some further action?

Got desktop back from service and now every browse session is substantially slowed by https which I did not request, understand or necessarily desire.

I want to get rid of it. I tried doing something as suggested on line without result.

I'm not tech savvy and hope for a solution stated simply enough that even I can follow the directions. Assuming I know anything about computers is a great way to give directions that are beyond my grasp. Please dumb it down for me.

Thank you.
