I used 'Refresh Firefox' there was a folder named "Old Firefox Data" placed on my desktop. When firefox came back up all my addons were gone. I was left with a pretty much bare bones Firefox. I needed those addons to work with. I attempted to restore the addons by either installing them through extensions or plugins and installing from files but FF said that here were no extensions that were recognized. I don't even know where to begin now to fix this. Half the extensions I want FF won't allow anymore.

I have been a loyal fan of Mozilla since Netscape .. This was a turning point for me. DONE .. OVER .. ENDED.

Does Firefox 48 work with OS X 10.7.5 or not--you say both no and yes.

Mozilla's web site says this: Firefox 48.0 System Requirements for Mac Operating Systems • Mac OS X 10.9 • Mac OS X 10.10 • Mac OS X 10.11

But also says this:

The Firefox version 48 release in August 2016 will be the last Firefox version to receive new feature or security updates on OS X systems that are no longer supported by Apple: OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8. Starting with the Firefox version 49 release in September 2016, Firefox is no longer supported on OS X systems below 10.9.

So is Firefox 48 supposed to work on my OS X 10.7 or not? (I ask this because of a web site that works with Safari but not with Firefox 48.) Should I regress to version 47? Should I regress to ESR 45? If so, what happened to 46 and 47?

On text only pages, Firefox displays text Left-to-Right (LTR) by default, even for plain text in which the language is read Right-to-Left (RTL). Firefox should either,

1) display content LTR or RTL on the basis of script (e.g., UTF-8 Hebrew text should be aligned RIGHT) 2) provide a user option to toggle which way all the text should be aligned on text only pages (perhaps, via the context menu)

Thank you

Okay, so I'm gonna start with this. My Lenovo laptop is only a year old, yet it's pretty corrupted by this program called Royal Raid[another question for another time] but to get to the point. Every time Mozilla has a not responding page, it either closes itself when it's bad or gets back from it. But this time, it was something that I had come across before but can't seem to solve. So see, one of my pages wasn't responding to a script[i'm not a tech guru, i don't know what that is, sorry] so I tried to press the stop script button to get back to my YouTube video. Then Mozilla stopped responding, but the sound from my video kept playing.[ A common problem i have, no biggie, right? Wrong.] I tried closing it. It wouldn't. Then the whole "close it or wait" tab came up and i closed it. But even then, i could still hear the sound from my video on YouTube STILL playing. Like i said, this happened to me before. I muted and waited until it stopped. When it did, i was pressing the Mozilla icon a LOT. [So much that i had tabs come up three separate times!] So then, i waited until all the tabs came, closed every one of them except the first, then waited. The homepage came up. Although i was confused i went to the menu and pressed Reopen closed windows which usually replaced my restore session tab since it never worked anymore, and it always brought back my tabs. Problem solved? Nope. Instead, it opened my OTHER closed tabs that i had closed WHILE trying to get my session back. Please don't tell me I'm screwed because i have stuff for school that i had on that session and i REALLY NEED IT! Please help. [P.S. like the title says my restore session tab has been grayed out. And not just now. I mean for a while]

Greetings I have been using youtube on firefox for so long that i thought it was supposed to look like this. Today i tried it on chrome and it looks much different. It's much smaller on firefox.. The strange part is, if i reduce the zoom to 90%, the video frame will have the same size as on chrome. It's the same problem as this but i'm on fullHD resolution so i don't see why it would not be the same for both: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1113357

Running FF in safe mode is the same. Using version 48.0.

I had some problems uploading pictures here so i put them on imgur: http://imgur.com/a/lYmoQ

I use Firefox in the old-fashioned mode with the "File, Edit, View ..." menu visible at the top of the window. When I click on "Bookmarks" there is a lot of white space between the entries. This means I have to scroll down to see some of the entries. This did not used to happen. Is there a way of altering the size of the spaces?

PS. I have tried the various suggestions that involve using the Stylish plugin but none of them work for me. In the postings there is talk of a " bookmarks sidebar". I don't really know what this is. I suspect it refers to the separate "Bookmark" window that one gets when one clicks on "Show All Bookmarks". As I said I'm interested in the drop-down menu from the old-fashioned "File, Edit, View ..." menu visible at the top of the window.

Yesterday, my Firefox History browser stopped saving almost all pages. The only pages it does save are ones like this: Firefox pages. I have no idea why it's doing this; I haven't been doing anything differently. I'm using an old Macbook - Mac OS X 10.6.8 - if that's relevant. I'm like a 95-year-old from the early 90s when it comes to technology, so please dumb it way down. Thanks.

How accurate is it when you download something through Firefox and it says "This Download Has a Virus or Malware and has been blocked for your safety"? Because I clicked "dowload anyway" then scanned it with Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and they didn't find a virus. I also scanned my whole PC and detected nothing.

A long time ago I think I changed my Firefox settings so that when I print a web page, all the links on that that page get printed with their often l-o-n-g URLs. Some pages are really hard to read with about 8 long URLs all over the page.

I've googled around on how to change it, but haven't had any luck.

Can anybody help?

Thanks :-)

I would first like to thank everyone for previous help/support. I am a 68 year old dedicated Firefox user dismayed by this continued issue with You Tube. When I select a video to watch I first get a flashed message saying “Your browser does not currently recognise any of the video formats available, click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video”. Normally the flash is so fast it is impossible to read but this time a third party website held it in place of the captioned video so I captured the screen. Clicking as requested does not offer any direct solution and as an every day user I am confused by what happens next. The video begins as per normal when I go to full screen the colours are saturated and the resolution below normal. The video can run for an unlimited time, before it freezes after a random time duration and will not start again or play any other video. To illustrate this as a Firefox issue is easily sampled by comparing the same use of You Tube on 'Chrome'. None of these events take place on Chrome and the Chrome browser video is fine. I am just an ordinary user, can you advise please? Thanks Tom Leigh
