I am running Ubuntu 15.10 on a 12 year olf DELL laptop and use Firefox 61. With the latest update or if I install Firefox 64 it stops working with the error message /home/smoehler/firefox/firefox: error while loading shared libraries: libatomic.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Can I fix this and if so, how?

Ever since Outlook did an update, it will not function in Firefox on my laptop. I can log in and see the list of emails but can not view emails in the reading pane nor delete an email. I can move between folders but not that is about it. It works fine on my computer at work but not here at home. It also works when I open it in a different browser like Explorer. I have cleared my cookies, cleared the cache and even restarted in safe mode with the add-ons disabled and it has not solved the problem. Just wondering what else I can do. Would like to continue to use Firefox but don't want to have to use two browsers just to accommodate Outlook.

When Browsing Firefox just freezes for ~7-10 seconds and goes unresponsive, this happens especially often when watching youtube videos in the Background, opening a new tab or closing a tab. This happens close to every 10 minutes and it is really annoying, I have tried a lot of the things i read on here, for example:

generate a new places.sqlite, disable Hardware Accelleration, I have both Refreshed Firefox and Re-Installed it. I have updated my Graphics Card Driver. I have done a Windows Disk Cleanup. I have Reinstalled Adobe Flash. I made sure to Disable Proxys

1. How do I TURN OFF 'animations' to speed up my browsing?

2. I still have no way to stop gmail, from 'auto filling' in my gmail address, as I log out, forcing me everytime to DELete it manually. I did try the fix a prior contributor to this site advised, NO change.

3. I need to find a better browser. I have a old slow laptop. Built in 11/11, is a Acer Aspire. 1.4 speed. Even lots of

   things disabled and running about no special apps, she's slow.

bear in mind, the apt. bldg. provides the internet/wifi in the rent. They call it 'hi speed' it's more like slow/middle speed. And many neighbors run 4-5 devices of a 140 unit bldg. I run just this one laptop no other devices at all.

Recently been to the Microsoft store for some things. At the store my Acer runs VERY fast so it's not only my laptop but this bldg. Having said THAT, I speak often to the neighbors and theirs run FAST. nice and fast.

So if I had a NEW Asus ssd i7 I am certain I'd run fast. Meantime, at nights I often get thrown offline or can't hardly at all use my yahoo mail...just buffers.

WHAT IS A GOOD BROWSER TO USE NOT FIREFOX? Thanks

I could understand it not clearing the cookies if Firefox was to crash or indeed my computer crashed (power failure etc) while I was browsing. I have become increasingly aware of the possibility of "cookie mining". Even though the cookie may be encrypted, knowing where they originated from and how often provides data as to website usage. I now take the view that if Facebook or google or Microsoft or anyone else wish to use my information (of even the most innocuous type) from which they will derive income (advertising profile data) they should pay me for it. The Firefox development community may have a different view but because they are champions of privacy & security, they should tell us. If they have switches that only designed to work "sometimes" they should also tell us and explain the logic. I could understand not clearing cookies from a previous session, because the option may have been different under that session, but I NEVER change that option. Still Firefox seems to be spasmodically not clearing some cookies on exit.

There are all sorts of dire warnings about not blocking cookies and I understand websites may use cookies to improve the "user experience" while you use that website. I also understand that a "hidden" website such as web beacons or other advertising gathering tools can store cookies related to the present "parent" website that you are visiting and these cookies are then available for interrogation by an entirely different website that happens to also use that beacon or tool. In short cookie mining.

Open source is open source. If Mozilla (I am a long time supporter) wishes to have policies or directions that are changing or at odds with what we users expect or have come to believe then that is fine as long as they tell us and explain their reasoning.

After the latest update (61.0.1) I am getting strange behavior. Firefox always opens the last viewed page, and not the main start page I am used to seeing. My properties seem ok (see screen capture). Options>Home page and new windows is set to blank page (I've tried both blank page and Firefox home default). Options>New tab same thing. This behavior does not occur after a crash (there have been no crashes). Any help greatly appreciated!

In "Cookies and Site Data" I have selected "Accept cookies and site data from web sites" and "Keep Until: Firefox is Closed".

When I close and reopen the browser, cookies are cleared for all sites I have visited (except for pinned tabs, but that's okay with me). Great! However, site data is not cleared. When I click "Manage Data.." I see a list of several sites, all showing no cookies but some number of KB of site data.

How can I make sure that site data is also cleared whenever I close Firefox?

I should note that I have no sites set as exceptions, other than ones set to block cookies altogether.

This is similar to an existing question (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1230363), but in that one the asker is having trouble with cookies, which are working fine for me. I tried applying the suggested fix from there (setting browser.sessionstore.privacy_level to 2) but it didn't make a difference.

I have been looking at using MEGA as an alternative platform for cloud storage & sharing files. MEGA also offer a browser extension for Firefox which is available here: https://mega.nz/extensions

What I wanted to know is if this extension is available to download from Firefox Add-ons, if it is not can anyone tell me if it is safe to install from mega.nz

I would much sooner install it from Firefox Add-ons if possible.

Many thanks for listening and for any advice that anyone can offer.
