Hi, I accidentally DLed FF88 without checking the details w/r/t functionality.

Several of the changes severely compromise my ability to use FF for my job.

Examples are the 'view image' which is now gone from right-click and replaced with 'open image in new tab' --this disrupts my work flow. And 'save image to pocket' etc is not useful for me, but happens to be right where I normally click on another function.

Is there a relatively seamless way to undo the FF88 'upgrade' ? TIA

Each item in this list is repeated according to the number of times I tried to import them.

Hello, I have one page on my website which is not loading. You keep on seeing the loading dot. I asked other people to check on their Firefox to check and also their is does not load. On other browsers (Safari, Chrome) it works. I downloaded Firefox on my iPad and there it works.

The page: hausamzee.com/inspiratie

I have no idea how to fix this, I guess settings in Wordpress?!?! Hope someone can help me out.

Thx so much! Anne

I recently updated FireFox to it's new version and added add-ons. Usually, when an add-on gets added, it shows immediately on the top left on the toolbar. (in videos and articles). However it doesn't display on mine. I did some research and found another method: customize toolbar -> drag the add-on to the toolbar. That didn't work either because no add-ons displays when i enter customize toolbar. Instead, there's an add-ons icon to drag. Dragging it on the toolbar and clicking on it doesn't do anything. I also read that if the toolbar is full there would be a + icon and when i click on it add-ons shows up. (my toolbar is actually empty and i don't have a + icon). So yeah, i'm left with no solutions. Appreciate some help and suggestions.

When viewing a job on Indeed, whether on a pane or a separate tab, the application menu fails to load when I click 'Apply Now'. The connection times out after a while. It even takes an awful time to go back (reload) to the page!

When I reported this Indeed Support, they recommended using Google Chrome as their site "tends to work best on it". I can now confirm that the issue does not arise with Chrome.

I have tried pretty much everything on this page: Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

I even reinstalled Firefox but it is so smart, it realized the fact and prompted me to refresh and now we are back where we left off.

I have a Windows XP machine kept solely to run those applications that wont run under Windows 10, and there are several.

It has a hardware switch that removes access to my network and is only connected briefly to print to my network printer then disconnected as the default. It does allow access to the Internet but that is only ever to one particular site, nominally once per year.

One program requires a yearly update to an internal text file from its parent organization. Previously all I had to do was briefly connect to my network access that file from that organization using the Firefox version on the XP machine to download that file directly to the program that needs it.

I tried that this week May 2021 only to receive an error message from somewhere to "Try Internet Explorer".

I have a workaround solution involving my W10 machine and a thumb drive to transfer that 1K text file manually, but the process of direct transfer to the XP machine used to work, and is much more convenient.

What has changed, such that the Firefox version on the XP machine no longer works?

Ideas please.

Hi, I need to use alt+scroll to zoom in and out on a website I use regularly. However, often, I will use alt+scroll to zoom out and end up leaving the session as firefox backs out to the previous page. This means that I have to spend a long time logging back in and loading my page.

I have tried shortkeys, but it doesn't seem to support modifying shortcuts using the scroll wheel.

How can I disable this shortcut?

Thank you.

My recollection is that when I used to want to reassign a bookmark to a different folder, I just brought up the bookmarked page and used the ctrl+D shortcut to add it to the new folder--and the old bookmark was gone. Now it seems that when I do that, the old bookmark remains, so that I now have the same page bookmarked in two places. Is this a change I was not aware of? Is there a different procedure to move (rather than duplicate) the bookmark?

A week ago, a bad update download trashed Windows 10. I had the operating system reloaded but have been unable to recover my Firefox profiles. (Nor my Thunderbird profiles either.) I downloaded the older profiles from my Carbonite account, but even tho they are in the Profiles directory, the Firefox profiles manager does not recognize them (i.e. they don't show up in the listing of profiles.) It's really frustrating since I need my bookmarks for work. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

On my old computer, the Firefox tabs were on a different line/row than the bookmarks toolbar. Now they are both in the same row and I cannot find any instructions on how to make them two different rows (tab row on top and bookmark toolbar underneath).

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
