I have tried every suggestion about history and everything im fixing to just uninstall firefox forever if I cannot get one of you to help me.

duplicate of /questions/1347914 thread.

I need to change my primary email because I no longer have access to the current account. When I try to add a new email it sends a verification code to the old email that I no longer have access to. Can I somehow keep all of my bookmarks and add an email or do I have to create a whole new account

When I was using version 88.x, Firefox had not crashed for years. Then all of a sudden, Firefox would crash several times a day. I looked and Firefox had updated me to ver 89.0. But I let it ride. Then Firefox about a month ago, Firefox stsrted to crash EVERY DAY. Then one day it crashed EIGHT TIMES IN A ROW and I mean when I hit RESTART, IT WOULD CRASH. I tried to revert to rel 88 but Mozilla WILL NOT ALLOW US TO REVERT BACK TO A PREVIOUS VERSION. When you do, the PROFILE gives you TWO OPTIONS: 'EXIT or CREATE A NEW PROFILE.' Certainly you do not want to CREATE A NEW PROFILE as you will LOSE, your history, add-ons, Bookmarks, EVERYTHING and you see a WHITE Firefox screen with nothing. So I choose EXIT and tried to put up with the CRAPPY ver 89. BUT FIREFOX KEPT CRASHING. TODAY IT CRASHED SIX TIMES IN A ROW......When I checked the VERSION, YOU HAD UPGRADED TO VER 91.0b6 (64-bit) AND IT IS NO BETTER.

WHAT IN THE HECK IS GOING ON. I DO NOT WANT TO LEARN CHROME OR EDGE AS I HAVE USED FIREFOX SINCE VERSION 1.0.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GO BACK AND KEEP YOUR OLD PROFILE, FLACKY OR NOT AS THAT IS BETTER THAN 'RESTARTING' FIREFOX ALL THE TIME.

MY VERSION 88 NEVER FAILED.

Greetings everyone,

I know this may sound like a strange question, but I'm very serious.

I just read an article that says Firefox is in danger of being shut down

I've always seen Firefox as the most trustworthy web browser and so I was planning on using Firefox as my main web browser for the long term. However, after reading this article I've become very anxious.

Article link: https://news.slashdot.org/story/20/08/15/1955237/can-firefox-be-saved

I'd really appreciate any advice.

Long running scripts have been a constance daily occurrence every time I use my desktop computer since seems like forever. This is the latest one: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-base-view.xml:198..... Not sure if they are all calendar scripts because I'm not always given any script info, just a non responding error message sometimes. I asked for help once before and tried what was suggested, as best I could, but I still have the aggravating problem just as often as ever. However, admittedly I'm not all that computer savy and am more of a user than I am a fixer. My browser is up-to-date and I also reloaded a new one recently. Add-ons are also disabled. Any help at all will be appreciated, thanks.

In the admin account and all user accoutns, I had Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

I created a new account on this computer. The VERY FIRST THING I did was go to Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

Guess what. It updated. It updated for all accounts.

I've easily lost four work days of time in the first 8 months of 2019 because of FIrefox updates. I need a way to stop updates. ALL updates. FOREVER. ALL UPDATES UNCONDITIONALLY BLOCKED. No leakage. I do not want them with a goat. I do not want them on a boat. I do not want them here or there. I do not want them anywhere. Is there any remaining ambiguity?

The ways described above don't cut it. So let's think unconventionally. Is there a file I can set the protections on, so Firefox's update balks and gives up? Can I create a file that has a name that Firefox update expects, and give that file some content or property so that Firefox update fails?

Dear Mozilla team,

Recently i installed a Mozilla browser on a new device. I log in to my account but nothing is getting synced. I have over 500 bookmarks and several add-ons and those are information that are of utter importance to me. They contain half of my work and research.

Please provide me assistance with this case.

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

1. Synced my Firefox sync account

2. Disconnected my Firefox sync account

3. Reinstalled windows

4. Installed Firefox 56 (I was using 63 but i only had 56 installer)

5. Updated it to 65.0.1.

6. Connected my Firefox sync account


Problem -

1. All bookmarks didn't sync.

I created bookmark HTML backups and it were of 6mb and my latest backup is 171mb.

There are 2980 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after again connecting to FirefoxSync. I used WinMerge.

2. HTML backups also contain fav-icons [and Firefox Sync only syncs links not fav-icons.]

When browser is used fav-icons are loaded but after sync fav-icons are loaded as pages are loaded , so there are no fav-icons and html backup size is less than the last backup.

3. Could be related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251781

4. There could be something wrong with Firefox's Exporting. Imported the same 173mb HTML to chrome and Firefox then exported HTML backups. Firefox Export was of 61.1Mb Chrome Export was of 12.9Mb

So, I haven't used Firefox for a few years, since they broke most of the good long-time add-ons such as Speeddial & TabMixPlus.

I decided to give it another try, since I've been with it from the very beginning.

I was using FVD Speeddial on Opera until they broke speedials so they could put their ads on the front page. Then i switched to Chrome, and it was easy because it has FVD Speeddial as well. I'm really definitely no fan of cloud backups to random companies, but it seems Firefox has gone the same way, FVD Speeddial is the only decent option on Firefox now, and When trying to make that my home-page, it was a bit tricky/shady.

Anyway, Copying and Pasting from Chrome to Word is a breeze, everything is retained, colors, fonts, line spacing everything. I really thought that was just any browsers capability. I'm certain Firefox of old never had this problem, but when I tried to Copy and Paste from FireFox all the formatting was lost. This is a brand New Installation, with only FVD SpeedDial installed as the only add-on. I thought it was a problem with my Office at first. I couldn't believe Firefox broke everything.

Anyway, you guys are really just not doing well anymore, and I don't know why or wtf happened. it's almost like you just dgaf anymore. You say you're made for people, yet try your best to look like browsers who dgaf about people and only care about profits. You need to go beg forgiveness from all the add on developers you've screwed over.

Unfortunately I just still can't use Firefox in its current state.

Best of Luck getting it working

When I middle click, I can't get the autoscroll to stay on firefox. I've removed it, reinstalled it, done a full system sweep with Revo to remove remnants, tried a different mouse, gone into the firefox settings and preferences, even the code, tried incognito mode, tried safe mode, and tried removing all add-ons but to no avail.

It works on my laptop, and it will show the autoscroll image briefly then it disappears after I let go of the middle mouse.
