hi, enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named browser.crashReports.unsubmittedCheck.enabled. double-click it and change its value to false.

I can not answer this question properly at the moment. Sorry I agree that is not a very satisfactory situation.

If no one else answers or I don't get back to you by Tuesday please post again to bump the thread. I do not have time to attempt to test and reproduce this issue this week.


Forum Note This will be a known problem for Fx49 & Fx50 but from an initial glance looks like it should be fixed in Fx51. This post relates to Fx51 (Maybe fix is actually in Fx52) Apparently related
