I'd like to update my mac's firefox, but not to the latest version. I know about the directory of releases, but I can't seem to find advice on what to do once I download the file. I don't want to create a separate profile, or risk messing up the profile/settings I have currently. So, any thoughts? Thank you in advance for the help.

Restore Previous Session not working - or, not properly at least

OK, I was using a very old version of firefox previously and restore previous session worked perfectly. If my computer crashed, when I rebooted it, the "trouble finding pages" message came up, click to restore session, and everything came back.

Then.... I upgraded to version 72.0.2 (64 bit)

Session restore no longer works, or at least not the way it should be working.

If I had say 20 windows open when the computer crashed, when I finish a reboot and start Firefox, I get the "trouble finding pages" message, and I click to restore session as before.

Anywhere from 2 to maybe 5 windows will restore. The rest are gone.

I suspect it has to do with the fact that there were now multiple "instances" of firefox running in the task manager, and what's happening is that it's restoring the windows in ONE of those previous instances, but not all of them.

It gives me the impression that the session restore function isn't tracking all the windows open in all those separate instances, but rather it's only tracking one instance.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

As soon as I start the Firefox Browser, it is connecting to multiple IP addresses. Any idea why it is doing so? Is there a way to stop it? Is it a privacy and security issue?

I have already changed most of the setting as mentioned in the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

Some of the IP connections have stopped after making those changes. But there are still few connections. They are: - 35.244.181.201 (This is Google LLC) - 13.227.142.108 (This is Amazon) - 117.18.237.29 (This appears to be Verizon Media) - 54.70.109.38 (This is Amazon) - 52.38.31.225 (This is Amazon)

It will be great if someone could shed some light on this issue. Thanks in advance.

This 'feature' annoys me so much. One, because its has no benefit and two, after FF75 it's not possible to disable it.

I like to discuss why someone thinks one click select all is useful. It's more common to edit your url/search input instead of type a complete new one. Selecting a part of your input or just input the cursor at a specific location gets really disturb by this 'feature'. In 30 years i use computers, this behavior have never been useful and when needed to select all, the click-swipe-release action is even as easy. Beside this, the decades old CTRL-A function is even as fast and useful.

More and more of this behavior is pushed at users on the web and i really don't see why. Can someone tell me why this behavior is invented? And how to disable it in newer FF versions?

what is it so hard to disable updates and stop your releases and keep my profile and addons. I had enough of your browser as with every update more things go wrong, missing or disabled. I just want to use the internet with the old addons I donw want any of your new features crap. With 8GB or ram your last browser fails to stop freezing my computer with your ram usage and process limit. I use basically the same addons and scripts as with FIrefox 52 and everything fails to work now. I hope someone can make a usable browser that does the simple things that I want and not have to deal with this again.
