Some websites report that I have an old outdated version of firefox. But this is not true. I always use the latest version in 64bit under Windows 7. One of these websites says I use Firefox 57.

I cannot get access to these sites. What may be the reason? I read this could be an outdated version of wordpress that these websites are using.

When I click on "show details" below, it also reports Firefox 57 but it is 76.0.1. What's wrong?

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

Since a recent update, I now see WAY too many login suggestions for a website's username field. The issue is that the site has the same subdomain as other sites that I use on my company's network.

For example, if the following sites exist: aaaa.lan.domain.com bbbb.lan.domain.com cccc.lan.domain.com ddd.lan.domain.com etc., then when I browse to the login page for aaaa.lan.domain.com, the login suggestion popup will have ALL of the various logins for ALL of the various subdomains. There will be a huge popup with numerous logins that aren't even usable for the site I'm on. Firefox didn't do this until just recently (like a week ago or so), and before, it would only suggest the logins for the exact site you were on.

Is there a way to force the old behavior?

URI paths can be used to access internal resources in Firefox.

For example, the URI: chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/rating-won.png relates to the real physical folder path of: ... /omni.ja!/chrome/toolkit/skin/classic/mozapps/extensions/rating-won.png

What is the chrome:// URI for the this particular icon?: ... /omni.ja!/contentaccessible/html/folder.png

It is higher up the tree than the usual top-level items, and I can't figure out the correct chrome URI for it.

When I click print in Firefox and chose Paperless Printer it would start and run the program. By doing this I save on paper and ink plus I can save in any format that Paperless Printer has. It used to work until approximately a month ago. Paperless Printer still works in I.E. and MS Edge. I've reinstalled P.P. and I also tried refreshing Firefox but nothing helped. Paperless Printer shows as a printer in the list and when chosen the PP program would open up and take over the printing needs and then just store the created file. Now Firefox starts to ready the page(s) to print but PP doesn't open up.

Not sure if this is the correct place to post my question, given the separation of Thunderbird from Mozilla. If this is not the right place, I'd appreciate a link to the correct one.

I'm new to Mac OS, have been a long time Windows-7 user, and long ago was a UNIX user at my then employer. But it's past time to say goodby to Redmond.

I want to transfer my Firefox Thunderbird email history as well as my address book etc. from the Windows 7 installation of Firefox Thunderbird, (which says it's "68.8.0 (32-bit)", it was updated today, May 10) over to the new (to me) MacBook-Pro Firefox Thunderbird (version latest as of May 9, so far haven't figured out how to cause the Mac Thunderbird to show it's version info)

While the instructions for copying the profile info on the Windows machine and transferring to another Windows machine are clear, and the instructions for copying an existing Mac profile and transferring to a new Mac are clear, I am unable to find any information on how to move the Windows files to the Mac installation.

I tried copying everything in the Windows "Thunderbird" directory to a flash drive, then tried replacing the Thunderbird files on the Mac with the copied files but that didn't work.

What is the procedure I should be following? For the moment I'll be keeping the Win-7 machine "alive" but would really like to abandon it soon.

Thanks for any suggestions.

(edited the question to change Firefox to Thunderbird - c)
