Firefox breaks all my important add-ons. Without these add-ons, Firefox is not worth using, at least not to me. The add-ons I use are:

 (1) Add Bookmark Here ^2
 (2) All Tabs Helper
 (3) FlashGot
 (4) Session Manager

I am currently using Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit).

Yes, I know it's not secure. I don't care.

Yes, I have looked for replacements for each of these these add-ons. I found none.

Yes, I turned off updates. Yes, I turned off "Use a background service to install updates". Firefox still updated to 56.

I have replaced the Firefox utility "updater.exe" with a program that does nothing. Will that stop updates from occurring? If not, what else can I do?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Hi all,

Firefox has been updating itself successfully over the past year, but today when I followed the most recent update (I think I had version 60.8 prior to the update), it didn't restart. When I tried running it using the command line, I got the error message:

firefox: symbol lookup error: libxul.so: undefined symbol: dbus_validate_bus_name

For now, I reverted back to an old version (55).

Any tips on how to resolve this problem?

I'm using firefox on linux 32bit with Fedora 17

Thanks!

I have autosaved my username and password for a banking website and my pocket wifi login page. I want to remove it so I can't automatically sign in. I went to Options, Security, Saved Logins and removed the websites. However, the two websites are both still autofilling the login details. They no longer appear under Saved Logins. I've also tried adding the websites as an 'Exception' but this hasn't worked either. I've tried closing Firefox and restarting but it hasn't fixed the problem.

I have Firefox set never to remember cookies except for a few select sites and to erase cookies and internet history upon closing the browser. Indeed, the sites outside my whitelist have always acted as if cookies are disabled for them (giving "you must enable cookies" if I attempt to log in, etc.). I also am required to re-log in to whitelisted sites after relaunching the browser, of course.

However, I just ran CCleaner, and its deletion log listed over 1400 Firefox cookies, a great many from sites I haven't visited in months. Apparently, Firefox's "never store cookies" option either isn't working due to a glitch or just doesn't work period, appearing to the user not to store cookies but just storing and not deleting them anyway.

1. Does Firefox just save cookies anyhow no matter your preferences, or is this a glitch? If it is a glitch, how do I resolve it? 2. Where is the age-old cookie information that CCleaner deleted stored, so I can delete it manually in the future?

(Note: Yes, I know about CCleaner's privacy concerns, but that's beside this particular point.)

Thanks in advance for any help.

Since Firefox v64, I can't resize an attached graphic when creating or editing a PM or Thread Post on a Invision Forum ( v4.3.5 ).

I access an Invision Forum v4.3.5 and I am able to Resize an attached graphic in a Personal Message or in a Thread Post. That is until Today.

I can't resize the graphic in FF v64.02 So I went to my notebook where I still use FF v55.03. I had no problem editing the size of a GIF . I click once on the graphic where I get the ability to stretch the graphic size either larger or smaller.

So I tried to downgrade FF. I went from v64.0.2 to 64.0 with no difference. I then downgraded again to v60.0.2 but that was unstable and crashed FF on every launch

So I am back on FF v64.0.2 on my desktop. If I click on the graphic to the right, I can not "stretch" or "compress" its size. If I double-click on it I get a dialogue. I can decrease ( compress ) its size but I can not increase ( stretch ) its size past its default pixel size.

Therefore I did a test on a Virgin PC ( Win8.1/64 but tested using only Firefox Win32 installers )

I installed Firefox v56 and tested the resize capability and I incrementally upgraded and tested Firefox 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62 and v63 and all were able to be Resize a given graphic.

It was when I installed Firefox v64 that the ability to Resize a graphic failed. 

I guess I never noticed it on my Desktop until Today when I updated it to v64.02 and tried it.

How can I set my new Brother printer as the default printer? I have to manually change it every time I print anything.

I tried going into the about:config, but the only entries under "print.print_" were only for Epson; Brother doesn't even show up. My new printer is a Brother, but a quick search turned up nothing with "brother" in it, even though it does show up as the non-default printer in the drop-down window. I want to have the Brother printer come up as the default printer, but can't find anyway to do it. I have checked the support pages and searched, but found nothing that seemed to apply. I'm still using Firefox 55.0.3 as the later versions don't support the "open tabs from last time" add-on and that is a great time-saver and organizer for me. I am using Windows 7. Thanks! Wolfgang P.s.: I have the Brother printer set up as the default in my Windows Control Panel. I also tried restarting the computer.

Add-ons/Extension Update: FireFox Extension Fixes Released! Updates for Versions 47-thru-65!

Updates – Last updated 14:35 PST May 14, 2019. We expect this to be our final update.

  • If you are running Firefox versions 61 – 65 and 1) did not receive the deployed fix and 2) do not want to update to the current version (which includes the permanent fix): Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 57 – 60: Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 47 – 56: install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.



Updates – Last Updated: 17:04 EDT May 9, 2019

A less technical blog post about the outage is also available. If you enabled telemetry to get the initial fix, we’re deleting all data collected since May 4. (May 9, 17:04 EDT)

Mozilla CTO Eric Rescorla posted a blog on the technical details of what went wrong last weekend.



Updates – Last Updated: 19:28 EDT May 8 2019

We’ve released Firefox 66.0.5 for Desktop and Android, and Firefox ESR 60.6.3, which include the permanent fix for re-enabling add-ons that were disabled starting on May 3rd. The initial, temporary fix that was deployed May 4th through the Studies system is replaced by these updates, and we recommend updating as soon as possible. Users who enabled Studies to receive the temporary fix, and have updated to the permanent fix, can now disable Studies if they desire.

For users who cannot update to the latest version of Firefox or Firefox ESR, we plan to distribute an update that automatically applies the fix to versions 52 through 60. This fix will also be available as a user-installable extension. For anyone still experiencing issues in versions 61 through 65, we plan to distribute a fix through a user-installable extension. These extensions will not require users to enable Studies, and we’ll provide an update when they are available.



"Updates – Last Updated: 11:51 EDT May 8 2019 (From Mozilla Blog)

Firefox 66.0.5 has been released, and we recommend that people update to that version if they continue to experience problems with extensions being disabled. You’ll get an update notification within 24 hours, or you can initiate an update manually.
An update to ESR 60.6.3 is also available as of May 8th. We’re continuing to work on a fix for older versions of Firefox, and will update this post and on social media as we have more information."



A Firefox release has been pushed — version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled (Bug 1549061).

There are remaining issues that we are actively working to resolve, but we wanted to get this fix out before Monday to lessen the impact of disabled add-ons before the start of the week. More information about the remaining issues can be found by clicking on the links to the release notes above. (May 5, 16:25 EDT)



"Last Updated: 00:54 EDT May 5 2019

Updates:

Some users are reporting that they do not have the “hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973” study active in “about:studies”.

Rather than using work-arounds, which can lead to issues later on, we strongly recommend that you continue to wait. If it’s possible for you to receive the hotfix, you should get it by 6am EDT, 24 hours after it was first released.

For everyone else, we are working to ship a more permanent solution. (May 5, 00:54 EDT)

There are a number of work-arounds being discussed in the community. These are not recommended as they may conflict with fixes we are deploying. We’ll let you know when further updates are available that we recommend, and appreciate your patience. (May 4, 15:01 EDT)"

I might as well use the crap from microsoft. they also have the "big brother" attitude - i.e. WE will decide what you want and don't and there's not a g.d. thing you can do about it, ha, ha! PLEASE don't keep this condensing attitude! i need something to help, not hinder, my every move online.

New versions of Firefox regularly break things. Whether it's Netflix/Stan/Pronto or other streaming services, add-ons, re-invent the UI, some websites just stop working properly with the newer version or a number of other things.

I have 10 PCs here. We are using 55.0.3 because it was the last version with a UI that we were all familiar with, worked with all the services we use, supported all the add-ons and more. It's very outdated but I want to keep all PCs on a known working environment.

So I'm currently testing 61.0.2 (Not 62.0 because it's a zero release, which always have issues). I've managed to find solutions for most annoyances regarding add ons and using Photon-Australis to get back the curved tabs (The square look is just plain disgusting). I've got the reload icon back in the address bar, and hidden the 3 dots with a 30 second timeout so I will likely never have to be annoyed by it. I've got rid of the wasted spaces on the address bar too.

I use a space theme (Earth from space). It uses a cyan font. On the white tabs it's all but invisible. Using the dark theme fixes that, but I'd like to have the tabs the same color as the background of the address bar as in v55. Reading through the userchrome.css file I just get lost.

The other thing I'd like to preserve are the icons for home, download and bookmarks, Is there a way to preserve the icons that are used in v55 rather than the uglier ones use in v61?

I'm sorry for coming across so negatively, it' just I don't get why developers keep changing UIs that are working. Change for the sake of change, which just adds frustration. Firefox is not the only program. Windows is probably the worst. So please don't be offended.

With 4 different user accounts on our Windows 7 PC, we need each user to have their own chosen version of Firefox. One wants to stay with an older version, another wants the latest all the time.

There must be a way to install and make each FF version available only to the user currently on the computer. Each user has their own AppData folder after all.

And, no, not interested in the profiles nonsense. Want different versions of FF installed but each version only available to the user who installed it.

This has been bothering me for ages. Would somebody mind visiting the above web site, clicking the heading for a news article with at least several comments, then scrolling down to those comments and clicking Reply on a few of them? What's supposed to happen is that the comments form that normally appears at the end of the comments jumps up and appears indented under the Reply button. I assume it works normally for you? Here, at most, the page scrolls a little but the form never appears.

The bigger problem is that this happens with every browser on this Windows 7 PC, not just Firefox, suggesting that a script or something is being blocked system-wide...but that doesn't appear to be the case. Launching Firefox's debug tools, all requested files either load (i.e. show a byte count) or list "cached". Opera Mini, running in the MicroEmulator Java console does work, BTW. I often block domains in the HOSTS file, but switch this off during testing, and it makes no difference. There is actually no antivirus or other software currently installed, but I do run MalWareBytes manually sometimes.

I am not looking for interactive problem-solving, as I'm very tech savvy and that's likely beyond the scope of this site anyway. I was hoping, though, that somebody more savvy with Javascript would take a quick look at the code and note the script files involved. I see most of the processing is in comment-reply.js. I used to be fair with Javascript but haven't touched it in nearly 10 years, and am still understanding IDE-style debugging.

Thanks for any suggestions.

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?
