Hey folks... I am running the latest ESR version for windows 7. I know, its limited support and stuff but I have this most annoying problem that just doesn't seem to want to go away.

Every day, several times a day, I am told there is an update available. I have gone in several times and downloaded and installed the latest release. The install goes fine, there are no issues. Yet, over and over again I am told there is an update... but I have the latest version installed.

In the past, I have used the "distribution" folder trick to stop updates and I have removed that a long time ago. I can't figure out why it keeps telling me there are updates, when there are none.

How can I stop this from doing updates where there are no updates to get? It's driving me nuts...

Running Windows 10 and Firefox 102.9.0esr 64-bit. I seem to have affected the print facility so that the contents of a frame within a webpage do not print. The frame contents do show on the preview screen but then disappear when the Print button is pressed and they are not printed. The rest of the webpage is printed OK. Typically this happens to the 'Sellers Description' on an Ebay item. I have upgraded to Firefox 115.7.0esr but this has not fixed the problem. The print works fine on another machine running Windows 10 and Firefox 91.6.0esr 64-bit. Is there a way to get the full print back? Regards, LRB

Since the recent installation of the latest version of Firefox I am getting a simple 'Forbidden' message when I attempt to get to the Go Outdoors web site. I also get the same result when attempting to go to Blacks, another outdoor supplies provider similar to Go Outdoors.

I'm still using windows professional 7, it works for the most part. Unfortunately often the browser won't load or it will load and runs very slowly, then it shows a box saying close previous firefox. When it is running slowly I often have to hit the browser many times until the box shows up saying close previous firefox. Is this something to do with windows 7 or another completely different issue.

hi, some websites lately have password inputs set as "text" in the html and that confuses firefox into NOT suggesting saved login/password for those fields.

i inspected the password field in question and this is the correspondent html:

​<input autocomplete="off" id="PasswordInput_68.39270255653231" class="ant-input false" placeholder="Password" maxlength="32" pxunit="14" buttonwidth="100" timeformat="YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss" store="[object Object]" langlocale="[object Object]" type="text" value="">

btw, if i change the type to "password" it DOES suggest the saved login/password.

PS : the website in question is a login page for a dahua XVR.

As per the subject, I can no longer restore all of my settings after this last update. I guess it's time to explore other options. Mozilla is nowhere as good as it used to be. That's progress. Low-paid interns and shoddy support help to influence.

I understand the necessity of some Extensions / add-ons to "Access your data for all websites" and therefore i agree to that for some of them. So here's the question: Is it possible for the data collected by that ADDON to be transmitted over the internet to either the ADDON maker or any other unknown recipient? Or is it that they indeed are collected but stored and processed locally on my computer and never transmitted elsewhere?

When I login into some WEB site it goes in to an endless loop continues? It used to work before you forced the download of version of 0esr, when the old none 0esr worked fine. As a example: I am trying to login to xcelenergy.com site and it keeps flipping back and forth with these two lines ( parts of lines deleted because you might get into my account )in the address bar -

1. - https://my.xcelenergy.com/MyAccount/MyAccount_Proxy?context=us1_tk1...............parts deleted.........................client_id=JnU2RjC15thihnMDrOyzKzvH&mode=login&scope=openid+profile+email+salesforceInfo&gig_skipConsent=true

2. - https://my.xcelenergy.com/MyAcco...........................parts deleted......................._MA_Template

I have included the 2 of screen captures that it flip's through of maybe a another 2 screens (can not tell, it flips through to fast).

  The site I am login into:          my.xcelenergy.com
 Firefox version using now:      115.6.0esr (64-bit) or the 32bit Version, I tried both. Then load an old back version it works fine but then it gets upgrade to the new version again.
  my version of windows:         8.1, with all Firefox ad blockers and other ad blockers turned off or on does not matter. 
      The reason I will not upgrade my software is that I would have to buy a lot of new software upgrades that I use, and can  

not afford at this time on my retirement.

I just got a new computer, and I'm trying to copy-and-paste a profile over from the old computer to the new one, but this doesn't seem to be working. Firstly, when I click on the Firefox icon on my new computer (Windows 11), the profile manager doesn't start up, so I can't choose the old profile. I've tried copying over all of the old files into the new profile folder, and that didn't work, either. What's going on?
