my uBlock is on but ads still play on youtube my stylish doesn't have any of the styles i've installed anymore and every time i try to install a new one firefox freezes firefox color no longer automatically applies my theme (i have to go find the website and select it) and i lost the ability to load outlook.com/owa but thanks to a trick another user here (FredMcD) taught me (Manage data/Forget this site) i was able to regain access to it.

Also I would hope that it goes without saying but any responses suggesting Resets/Nukes will be ignored and reported. Let's try to work together to get this issue sorted out.

After needing to do heavy maintenance due to a malware/malvertising issue that cropped up, I needed to restart and refresh Firefox a couple of times. While all the tabs are still present, they are now "discarded". I am fully unable to restore them, currently. Googling has not given me any real insight as to what is going on.

I did have Tab Suspender extension/app in use, so perhaps I should have disabled that and refreshed all the tabs. Impossible to say now, and hindsight is not exactly helping me restore any of this.

I have a lot of tabs, and I have managed to copy the titles of each tab, so I should theoretically be able to find each one again. However, if there is an easier method to restore all my tabs, I'd prefer that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.
