Mozillia has become almost impossible to use due to its applied security updates.

Posted

Without warning or notice, Firefox makes security "improvements" that disable relied on add-ons and extensions. Then the puxxle must be solved in the most inconvenient time and manner.

I previously was a supporter and user of Firefox. Since it has started to act like a Microsoft product, which I left to use Firefox, I seem to have no alternative but to search for a new and dependable Broswer that is not dictatorial in its habits.

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected at http://input.mozilla.org/, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.

See:


It is possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.

Delete the extensions.* files (e.g. extensions.json, extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

New files will be created when required.

See "Corrupt extension files":

If you see disabled or not compatible extensions in "Firefox menu button/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the Tools button at the left end of the Search bar to check if there is a compatibility update available.

If this hasn't helped then also delete the addons.json file.
